Elephant Baby Shower for Baby Whittington

I'm so excited to share the adorable elephant baby shower my friend Nathalie and I hosted for Sam and Denisse. The elephant theme started with a cute invitation that we liked {see below} and the colors purple and green came from the Mom and Dad to be. Denisse requested that we not have "pink" as the color, because even though they are having a girl she prefers purple and green. I LOVE these colors together, so it turned out great! 
Here are some pictures from the preparations and the final event. The shower took place at a wonderful cafe in Noe Valley called, Noeteca. They specialize in wine and food pairings. The menu included, a mimosa bar, beer, cheese & salami platters, and crostini's with garlic hummus & roasted red bell peppers, roast beef & blue cheese dressing, and gorgonzola/roasted red grapes. I would highly recommend the space for a private party!
Thank you to Nathalie Shami for being a great co-host and Denisse and Sam for being such wonderful parents to be! 

Here are a few before shots...getting the mason jars together and making the chalkboards.

Chocolate chip cookies in to go paper bags with stickers on them that say Baby Whittington

This was the only game we played at the shower was a guessing pool for when the baby will be born, date, time, and weight. Everyone had to stick a dollar in a jar that will be split between the winner and the baby!

Tables were decorated with burlap, mason jars with burlap and purple lace, and little elephant cut-outs.

 The beautiful Mom and Dad to be :) Congratulations!!
