:::Zebra&Elephant 1st Birthday:::

Zebra Elephant Party

I was so excited to style this event for a friend of mine. We combined her daughter's love of elephants, her obsession with zebra print, added in hot pink and the cutest birthday theme was born! We made sure to include the birthday girl and a cute elephant on the invitation.

We had big plans for this party but the challenge was, decorations needed to be on a budget.
I painted zebra stripes on white paper and covered coffee cans for the centerpieces. We made tissue paper flowers in pink and black. The little balloons tied to elephant figurines were made from wire and pom poms.

The dessert table turned out beautiful. I trimmed the front of the table with pink pom pom trim.

The cake was the main centerpiece of the dessert table and I made a pink tulle skirt to go around the cake stand. It sat on a box covered in zebra print paper.

 I designed a Mommy & Baby Elephant artwork and displayed it in a hot pink frame. Elephants held little name banners and cupcakes were topped with the little elephant design from the invitation.

I painted a large elephant and little pink bows were cut out for guests to play, 'Pin the bow on the elephant.' Parents could also create 'Elephant hand print art' with their child.
