Circus Themed Baby Shower

How crazy cute is this DIY Circus Themed shower, designed and photographed by Lauren Bauer of JL Photographers? Lauren’s sister is the mom-to-be, and she owns the baby/announcement website business called There’s a Peanut in My Belly. This spurred the idea for the circus theme, filled with elephants and peanuts! All of the food, beverage, and cupcake labels were DIY projects, as were the paper flag banners, confetti banners, and party picks. They gave the design a vintage touch with faded colors and stripes, wooden boxes, mason jars and burlap. I can’t get enough of those centerpieces!

    OMG….love this shower. I am throwing my sister the same kind of shower… “Celebrate the Peanut”. I have looked in multiple Michaels stores and cannot find the paper mache elephants. HELP!!! I think they might be out of stock. Do you know of anyone that is selling them?
