Elephant-themed baby shower

Last night my friend Tricia and I threw an elephant-themed baby shower for a good friend and her darling little peanut (who came a whole month early so he wouldn't miss his own party!). We went with grey, green, and white for the colors and Tricia did a great job incorporating our theme throughout her house.
For the food we served white texas sheetcake cut into elephant shapes, chocolate-covered mint oreos, rocky road popcorn, peanut butter and chocolate cupcakes, artichoke dip and citrus punch.
Our favor boards were inspired by Amy Atlas who did similar boards for a party, except she pinned hers to the board and we attached ours to ribbon with matching clothespins I found at Michaels.
The white tablecloth was embellished with grey felt cut into a large scallop and sewn around the edge. The small elephants used on the favor bags and on the table were made with the Martha Stewart punch.
We had a fun crowd and Xander was the star of the show. He is so tiny and sweet, he will be so handsome in all the cute outfits he got last night!
