I’m in the process of helping my Aunt plan a baby shower for my cousin’s wife, and being that I’m in LOVE with party planning, I was ROARING WITH EXCITEMENT when presented with the task!
My cousin is expecting a baby boy, so I immediately thought of throwing a JUNGLE themed shower (because let’s just face it, there’s just nothing cuter than baby boys and jungle animals!)
I hit the jackpot when I found these adorable invites online at TINY PRINTS:
I love the style of this invite! It's adorable, yet sophisticated, which is super important because although this is a baby shower, it's also a party for the mom-to-be, and her style should be reflected in the theme as well. Being that this invite does just that, I decided to use it as the inspiration for the rest of the decor.
I created the Roaring with Excitement stickers on my computer and printed them out on sticker paper. I also designed the baby book insert to match.
So now that the invites are in the mail, I started working on some decorations!
All you need to create this look is some scrapbook paper, ribbon, a glue gun, and letters. I used wooded letters because I thought it would create a nice look, but stickers or paper letter would work fine as well.
Simply cut out a square (or whatever shape you want to use) for each letter that you need. It’s important to leave a tab on the top of each square so you can easily glue it to the ribbon later.
Once you have completed each letter, simply use your glue gun to attach each letter to the ribbon. Fold the tab over the ribbon and glue both sides to create a stronger hold.
