{Partylicious} and Safari Baby Shower

Hello everyone!

I finally decided to give this party planning idea a try for real, and I'm glad to announce I had my first formal job this month!

I'm really excited to share with you my latest project.  This was a baby shower for my high school friend Felipe and his wife Heidi, whom are expecting their second baby boy.  She really wanted to go with aqua, lime and chocolate and little jungle animals.

With the beautiful cake!

We used chocolate malt balls, wrapped chocolate bars, candy covered peanuts, lollipops {which I wrapped in tissue and ribbon to carry the color theme} and candy dipped marshmallows.  The dessert table turned out beautiful!  It's a shame that the cake hadn't arrived yet.  I adore the polka dot balloons.  I buy them at a local party supply store.

As party favors we gave marshmallow babies, made by my good friends at MEL's Designs and I made chocolate covered Oreos in cellophane bags.

The banner featured an elephant, monkeys and a lion.  The mom-to-be loved the centerpieces I made for the Turtle Baby Shower, so we adapted those using the same jungle animals.

I'm a happy camper... everything turned out beautiful and sweet!  And I'm even happier because there are a couple more jobs lined up for next year!!!

Thanks to all my friends for all your support! 'Till next time!
