As some of you know, fellow HAP blogger Stef is pregnant with her first child. Katie and I got together to throw her a baby shower for close friends. We knew her nursery was a safari theme, so we decided to throw her a “Lions and Tigers and Bears…oh my!” themed shower.
The invitations were created by Katie and set the tone for the adorable party.
The table was set with burlap fabric and a tiger print runner, which we picked up at a fabric store and left unfinished for a rustic feel. Silverware was wrapped in a napkin and tied with coordinating ribbon.
Guests snacked on basil chicken club sandwiches, turkey and cranberry paninis, a mixed green salad and exotic fruit skewers. All food was served in wood or rustic platters and labeled with place cards also designed by Katie.
Guests enjoyed a tropical punch that was mixed with either champagne or ginger ale.
For dessert, we had Chai Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Frosting and sugar cookie leaves.
As party favors, everyone was invited to join in the fun of a candy buffet! The ladies filled spice shaker jars with various green and brown candies to match the decor. Candies were set out in vases and apothecary jars adorned with raffia and “Lions and Tigers and Bears” theme tags that matched the invitations.
We all had such an amazing time putting this baby shower together! Stay tuned to meet the newest member of the Haute Apple Pie family!
Anne, Stef & Katie
