Zebra Baby Boy Shower

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, Lizfor 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 plastic flutes and added a “It’s a boy” charm with a blue bow…they looked adorable!

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 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.

    Do you still think they might have the baby carriage at Hobby Lobby? I couldn't find it either.
