Elephant Themed Baby Shower 

Recently I was asked to help with an elephant themed baby shower.  Everyone involved had a job to do.  Of course mine was making the cake and favors.

Here are some ideas if you are thinking about an elephant baby shower theme.

Start with a cute invitation…Check out Zazzle.  They have the best invitations.  So many to choose from.

This is the cake topper I made out of fondant.  I used a Wilton number 5 tip to make the fingers and toes and used a knife to make the lines on the skin.

Fondant elephant.

This is the favor.  I put the cupcake in a clear plastic cup and wrapped it in cellophane.  I used a small cookie cutter for the elephant topper.

The cake and cupcakes.   The cake was a small buttercream cake made with the large star tip.

The diaper cake my sister Jackie made.  Such a clever idea.  Since this was much bigger than the cake, it worked well as the center piece on the table.

Another one of Jackie’s ideas.  This is just a regular chalkboard.  She used a chalkboard pen found on the “bride” section of Michael’s craft store.  The handwriting is awesome.  Love the cute little hearts.

If you are looking for inspiration or color scheme check out these adorable paper plates, cups and napkins.  You can start with this design and build everything else around it.

Here is another idea for a favor.  Animal crackers in a clear box topped with a small stuffed elephant.  You could also make an elephant tag instead.  Why didn’t I think of that? No baking!

Oh my gosh Rachel! I LOVE the idea of animal crackers/cookies as the shower favor...not the elephant. Have you seen some of the cute safari themes? cute and colorful!
