Baby Shower – Elephant Theme

The excitement is building up for the arrival of our little one.  There’s less than 6 weeks to go and the baby is kicking more than ever as a constant reminder of his existence.

There is no better way to celebrate this time than to have a baby shower.  Last month, we had an Elephant Themed Baby Shower.  Not only are baby elephants cute, but they also symbolises strength and wisdom.

I found some pretty elephant cutlery and decorations from our local discount store which was perfect for the occasion.

Since I have gestational diabetes and am not allowed any soft drinks, I bought a couple dozen bottles of mineral water and added our own customised elephant labels.

For bonbonniere, I made elephant fondant cookies.  I used the tried and tested recipe from one of my previous posts.

To top it off, my cake buddy Ingrid blessed us with a chocolate ganache cake with Prince Elephant and Rainbow.  How cute is that!

We were truly blessed and showered with love from all our friends who attended the party.  Can’t wait for the little one to come and to introduce him to the world 🙂
