Honeycomb Events & Design created this beautiful boyish Safari Baby Shower a while back, and it was so well received that they just had to glam it up for the girls! And glam it up they did… blue giraffes became pink elephants, while sparkly rhinestones adorned everything from spoons to decor (just check out that GLOBE!). The result? A fabulous Posh & Pink Safari Baby Shower!
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
- A crafty, homemade wooden shim backdrop
- Strawberry rhubarb parfait favors with bedazzled wooden spoons
- Popcorn cones displayed in peanut-filled crates (gotta keep the pink elephants happy!)
- An amazing safari globe with over 1,500 pink rhinestones
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Jennifer…
The idea for this baby shower sprung out of the success of another one of our events. We created a blue safari shower featuring giraffes for our friend and her baby Josiah last year. This party has gotten so much great attention, and we’ve been selling the printables left and right, that it quickly became evident that we had to create a sister version! Pink elephants replaced the blue giraffes and we gave it just a touch of glam. Our aim was embracing the wild and taming it just long enough to slap a rhinestone on it.
The dessert table feels like an oasis with it’s pink canopy net and bold giraffe print tablecloth. The table features a brilliant backdrop we crafted from wood shims. We alternated the shims and stained them gray to give the backdrop some great dimension and texture. It’s very inexpensive and takes less than an hour to put together. Little touches like this really brought the table to life. The safari globe features over 1500 pink rhinestones and the popcorn cones are in a crate filled with what else, but an elephant’s favorite snack, peanuts! Delicious peanut butter cake pops and honey cupcakes are the tasty desserts, but we also feature cheesecake bites with personalized party tags and an array of khaki and pink candies.
Each safari guest takes home a jar of strawberry rhubarb parfait with their own bedazzled wooden spoon. But not before stopping by the advice desk and dropping off words of encouragement and maternal wisdom.
