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.
“…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.

How adorable! Yellow is my favorite color and I love how the grey was incorporated using the lovable little elephants! Great job and best of luck to the new mommy!
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
I’m so curious about what is in the wine glasses? Some kind of frozen fruit? I would love to see a recipe.

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!
