The sweet little baby this shower was thrown for turned 1 this summer and I thought it was the perfect time to share. Her mama LOVES Elvis my friend and I knew we had to incorporate this into our party without being too cheesy. This was a first girl after 2 boys so we also wanted a soft feminine party. After many brainstorming sessions we decided on Shake, Rattle & Roll. This combo of classic baby images and fun Elvis wording created a fun whimsical baby shower theme.
We used a bottle (Shake), Rattle, and Stroller (Roll) as our images with soft baby pink and mint green accents. I punched my printable Shake Rattle & Roll cupcake toppers out with a scalloped punch for an extra girly touch.
All of the food was Elvis inspired. We used elements from his favorite foods to create out menu. Peanut butter banana bars, coconut macaroons (he loved coconut cake), and lemon meringue parfaits.
We hosted the shower at the bride to be’s church rec room. It was a large space with not great lighting. We made it cozier by using round tables just in one half of the room for guests all focused towards the main table and mom to be’s chair. Each table had either a centerpiece circle in a scalloped pot or diaper cake, mini tissue poms, plus a frame with Elvis lyrics, place settings with a favor, game card, and drink jar.
Cupcake toppers were used on the drink jars as a cute little tag.
We used pink Hershey’s kisses in clear bags tied with a printable favor tag for a sweet treat for each guests to take home.
My friend made these gorgeous diaper cakes for the tables. They were topped with printable centerpiece circles and pink curly ribbons. We wrapped the layers with pink and mint fabric and layers of ribbons. I love how they turned out! Such a pretty decoration and gift for the mom to be.
The last Elvis touch were these adorable blue suede shoes my friend found as a gift for the mama. Such a sweet and special baby shower celebrating baby Presley! Yes you read that right. Baby girl was named Presley after Elvis himself. So fun!
