This week has been chalk full of real parties, and today is no exception.  Today we’re featuring a real baby shower brought to us by the talented Kim Mower, owner of Head of the Table and fellow blogger.  With the most adorable theme and a modern color combination of grey and yellow, what mom-to-be wouldn’t love this Alphabets & Elephants Baby Shower.
Grey and Yellow Shower

Grey and Yellow Baby Shower

There are so many little details to love about this shower!  From alphabet poster to the baby blocks, the super cute diaper cake to the elephant table decor, it’s all perfect.  Even down to the yellow and white polka dot drink tags topped off with a mini grey elephant.  Here’s a little of what Kim had to say about this shower:

“…My friend heather and I hosted a baby shower for our friend Shelly who is preggers with her first child.  Shelly isn’t finding out what she is having so it was the perfect opportunity to use one of my favorite new color combinations: yellow & gray!  To make the gray more baby-friendly, I squeezed cute elephants in whenever I could. Its always special when you can adapt your theme to the guest of honor. Our mama-to-be is a teacher and loves to read, so i thought it only appropriate that i work in the alphabet whenever possible.  I’ve always loved made by girl’s abc poster’s and was able to customize the color to match the party!  Heather was in charge of food and made a delicious brunch including fruit kabobs and lemon sorbet with raspberry/vanilla ice cream.  I was in charge of drinks and of course used that as a chance to show off some more elephants.  It was a wonderful baby shower brunch for all ages.”

A very special thanks to Kim and Heather for sharing this darling shower with us!  Be sure to check out Kim’s blog for even more party inspiration.  And for you party planners in the St. Louis area, check out her chic tableware rental boutique, Head of the Table.

    Have you ever thought of adding more videos to your blog posts to keep the readers more hooked? I just read through the whole article and it was quite good but since I am more of a visual learner, I find videos to be more helpful. I enjoy what you guys are always up too. Keep up the nice work. I will revisit your website daily for some new post.

    Angela – the dessert in the wine glasses is lemon sorbet with raspberry and vanilla ice cream. In the larger photos, it looks like there is one scoop of vanilla ice cream and then the long frozen cubes of lemon and raspberry together. Topped with a sprig of mint!

    Hope that helps!
