Jungle Safari Baby Shower Decorations

I was so pleased to be able to be a part of my sweet friend, Heidi's, baby shower. I actually used to be her leader at church when she was just a wee little girl (16) ;) Am I really getting that old!!!??

She's going to have a little boy to love and cherish and she picked out this fabric called Safari Tots. Her mom made her the cutest bassinet with it, and I decided to make her a book page banner that she could hang over baby Ryan's crib.

I paper pieced this monkey based on something I saw on Martha ages ago.

and used it as the cover to an album I put together for her.

Here's the banner with baby Ryan's name and the circle garland at the party. They had these zebra print kraft cards at Hobby Lobby so I purchased a pack and stuck animal prints on the fronts. We used them as decoration and now she can use them as thank you cards.

I also put together a table centerpiece with jungle animals. I got these stickers at Dollar Tree in the wall sticker area.

I put the animal stickers on white card stock and then trimmed them out.I then made cylinders with coordinating papers and stuck one animal to a cylinder. There were a bunch of leaf stickers left over on the sheet so I thought maybe I could hobble together a palm tree.

I wrapped strips of torn brown paper around each other and attached the leaves at the top with glue dots. You could totally make this into a jungle diaper cake but someone else was already bringing a diaper cake ;). I hope you have a great day and bring some joy to someone in your life.
