A Jungle Themed Baby Shower

When I found out one my friends was pregnant with her first baby boy
I asked her if I could throw her a baby shower
She was planning to decorate her nursery with a jungle motif..
So I decided to go with the wild animal theme.

Since the invitation sets the tone of your party
I  created something a bit different:
(those are wild animal squishy balls  inside the cellophane spotted bags)

I put the word out to my sisters to go on the hunt for jungle stuff...
And Gayle sent me the cute vintage giraffe and lion ceramic vases
 and the glittery "BABY" sign:

I served "Monkey Banana Cream Pie"

And had a treat bar with "Cheesey Cheetos", "Gummy Grizzley Bears", and "Wild Animal Cookies",

I had monkeys swinging from the rope "streamers" and hanging vines

My friend Lisa collects Noah's arks...
and she let me dock two very cool arks and all the animals at my house for the night.

Martha made the cute signs for the treats and desserts
 (she attached the signs to vintage wooden elephants )

I also placed a ferocious lion to guard the piranha gold fish treats...

A collection of Stieff bears enjoyed the festivities  too
as they sat atop of the buffet

What a fun evening with these lovely ladies ....
Can you find our soon to be mama?  (Hint:  her name is Tracy)
