Zebra Baby Boy Shower

| All Parties, Nancy's Parties

I had the honor to host my very first baby shower for one of my good friends, Julie.  She is pregnant with her second little boy.  His name is Luke.  This is also my very first “BOY” party!  It was fun searching for ideas and seeing them come to life!  Thank you to my friend, Liz for capturing these beautiful pics!
The invite was made by my friend, Tricia.  Julie really wanted to have a zebra theme.  We decided to add this type of blue insted of the traditional baby blue.

As guests arrived, they wrote a “wish” for baby Luke or “advice” for the mom-to-be on these zebra circles hanging on the tree.

Next to this tree I set up a table for the gifts.  I made the mini-banner taped on the wall.

The table was so much fun to put together. I made the centerpiece for it.  I added some votives and glass jars with fresh white roses.

I bought brown zebra fabric at JoAnne’s for the backdrop.  I made this mini-banner “It’s A Boy”.

I decided to add  the letter “L” on the table for baby’s name, Luke.  I painted it brown and added brown glitter on it…super easy and inexpensive :)

I’ve never made a diaper cake before.  My friend, Lisa, came over and pretty much made it for me :)  I just watched and helped rolling some diapers!  There are 3 custom-made brown zebra burp cloths at the top made by my friend, Valarie at Everything Girly.

I made cake pops for the very first time….NOT fun for me.  I am not a betty crocker….it was harder than I thought!  Bakerella is one of my idols..ha!

I made these yummy oreo truffles.  My friend, April told me about them and they were a hit!…..delish!
Zebra cake, cookies, and cupcakes made by Decadent Delights.  They were to die for…delicious!

    New research shows that this supplement is sufficient against DHT, helping to break it down into other things that are not ravaging to your hair.
    Neither scenarios are conducive to the length of time (at least 30 days) most blacks wear cornrows, micro braids or
    single braids. Now keep on braiding by using your free index finger and thumb of your

    While most of these programs mentioned provide similar course curriculums, mentioned
    here are some of the broader areas and some of the newly popular areas in accounting.
    Is it possible that an ISTJ accounting major is more likely to become a
    CPA. CPAs do not follow in the personality trait footsteps of their accounting brethren.

    s not a surprise to see the growth of this brand expand from
    Canada to the USA and soon to be recognized internationally.

    It is very imperative that the spaces left with the boxes should be closed with other things so that the furniture wouldn’t
    have a room to move while been moves about. A new Interstate protocol could be needed to allow convoys to build in the left lane.

    Contact companies you do business with approximately four weeks before you move.

    To keep you in the most comfortable and peaceful state of
    mind possible, Dr. For example, you might be seeking rhinoplasty as way to achieve a
    functional goal. By using a radio frequency face lift,
    many men and women can prolong the need for a full-fledged face lift later on in life.

    proper real estate investment techniques. ” devoted mostly to the Lease Option method acquiring and controlling real estate without actually buying it.

    The beginning of the end came the day Nia’s boyfriend didn’t take up her offer of caring for him when he was ill.
    It is possible that combining the two hair loss products in a regimen can address the hair loss problem from
    two fronts. Because of this, you need to clean your hairs and make them tidy at all the
    times.

    I purchased the baby carriage at the store, not online. However, it was a very random find…I've never seen another one since then. Sorry girls.
