Baby Culver's Jungle Safari

This weekend I did this fantastic dessert table for a friend's baby shower. The theme was jungle safari.

Pin It

Don't you love it?! Everything on this table was made by me! Check out the details...

Kelly and Dave are expecting a baby boy who they plan to name Isaac. I made the "I" for the top of the tower. I also stamped the boxes for the tower and the matching table runner.

Check out those palm trees! I made those from recycled paper bags (tutorial coming soon!)

These animal print cones were made from patterned scrapbook paper.

Check out some of the goodies!
Top Left: Mini Cheesecakes
Top Right: "African Oreos"
Lower Left: Zebra Pudding Shots
Lower Middle: Smore Marshmallows
Lower Right: Mini Banana Cream Pies

I also made these jungle friends cupcake toppers. They were a huge hit with all the kids! Check out some of the ones in the background....those are pineapple flowers. The cupcakes were pineapple with mango frosting.

Here I am with the proud mamma to be! Congrats guys! Cant wait to meet Isaac!
