Whimsical Animal Baby Shower

My friends and I threw Bethy and Baby Girl Madison a whimsical animal tea party.  We are all so thrilled to be celebrating this amazing little girl, we are unbelievably happy for Beth and Reece, and we can not wait to meet their little addition.  Only 2 more weeks until her due date!!!!! 

 We seriously had the best time putting this shower together, we could not have asked for a cuter theme.  I was dying while dressing up the numerous animals, I could not stand how cute they all were turning out!  A big thank you to my amazing mom for having the most spectacular stuffed animal collection in the world.  I knew she had quite a few, but I didn't realize she had so many adorable ones!  They definitely made the party extra special.

Angie and Laura were the masterminds behind this adorable print wall.  They collected many of the prints off of the internet, they found some amazingly perfect prints!

That stylish little bear is Pink Bear.  She was Bethy's number one companion when she was little.  Bethy loved Pink Bear so much, my mom invested in Spare Bear and Spare Bear II so that she could rotate washing them.  It was very thoughtful and meaningful for Pink Bear to make it to Baby Madison's party.

Kelly made this print for all the guests to write messages to the mother to be and to baby girl.  It turned out so amazingly cute, and will be such a special memento of this happy afternoon that can be hung in baby's nursery as a constant reminder of all the women that have so much love for her.

These stunning favors were one of my most favorite things to make for this shower, they all turned out so well!

I made these butterfly garlands.  I have had a large container full of punched out butterflies for years, they have made a few appearances at other parties we have thrown.  It was fun to turn them into garlands!  Bethy asked for a few of them to hang in Baby's nursery!
