PARTY DETAILS, as told by Cris

To welcome a “new” cub on his way, our friends chose to have a Simba Themed Baby Shower. They decided to mix in some turquoise and lime green to the decor. I was so excited to start planning for this event! Miranda from Whimsically Detailed designed the printable especially for the baby shower.

Of course, I wanted to have a Safari feeling and also have some bright colors per their request. To start, I made the backdrop. I purchased 2 foam boards from Hobby Lobby and wrapped them using lime green wrapping paper and added some paper fans from Oriental Trading. I used burlap tablecloth and added a pop of color by adding a piece of turquoise fabric. The sweets included brigadeiro de colher (Brazilian sweet), cream puffs, custom made Baby Simba marshmallow pops by Maria’s Crafts, chocolate covered strawberries, cinnamon buns, cupcakes and a variety of candies. Maria’s Crafts made the cute mom-to-be pin. As favors, guests took home a baby plush lion and palm tree favor boxes with chocolate kisses inside. My favorite addition to this party was the gorgeous diaper cake that Saving by Design made specially for this event. It was just adorable!! We played Baby Gift Bingo and guess the baby food game. The cute cake was a gift from one of the couple’s friends.
