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!

This adorable boy elephant baby shower was thrown for a friend. She loved the Carter’s navy and light blue elephant clothing line that was out at the time. I used that as inspiration for this set. Our mutual friend Danielle hosted this party and went with carnival inspired food and of course peanuts. It was so much fun.
This adorable wreath made from diapers is paired with our printable elephant welcome sign to greet guests. It would be so cute on a nursery door for the mommy to be.
Just as the guests entered there was a table with a Guess How Many Peanuts game and cards for writing blessings to the baby. I love the use of tissue poms on the vases to look like flowers. Such a great pop of color.
Here is a closer look at the game. The food tent cards were repurposed as entry cards. Guests wrote their name and guess on them.
This sweet elephant pennant banner was a fun addition to the doorway into the party.
There was so much yummy food at this party. For the carnival food theme there were lots of foods on sticks.
Take a look at that cute elephant tissue pom. Isn’t he adorable. Here is a closer look at some of the yummy food for the Elephant Baby Shower. Blue chocolate chip cookies. ham and cheese pinwheels, berry sweet rolls, homemade potato chips in fun carnival striped bags.
Mini elephant ears, corn dogs, anti pasta on a stick, and veggie sticks. There were also fruit skewers. Delicious!
I love the look of napkin wraps at a party. It is such an easy thing to do and has such a big impact. These cute mommy and baby elephants look adorable wrapped around the silverware.
Throughout the party there were several elephant centerpiece sets. I love the use of peanuts in the jars throughout.
Here is another fun centerpiece and banner display. I love the use of the onesie in it. Such a clever idea. This banner is made from the centerpiece circles. Don’t be afraid to get creative with the elephant printable baby shower decorations.
Even the party game prizes were dressed up to match the theme. A plain white bag with a centerpiece circle tie it all together.
Tissue poms can add so much color throughout a party. Don’t be afraid to go crazy. Multiple sizes, colors, flat or hanging.
These origami elephants will be such a cute mobile for the baby’s nursery. You can see behind them is a clothes pin line filled with the Carter’s elephant clothing line. It doubles as decor and a gift for mom.
As the guests left there was a peanut bar. Fill a bag with your favorites for an easy baby shower favor.
These cute mini canning jars made the perfect container topped with a printable favor tag for pastel m&ms. Another sweet baby shower favor for guests to pick up as they left.
I also have a matching Bingo Card perfect for a Baby Shower Game.
This set is also available in pinks and gray for a Girl Baby Shower.
