Green and Gray Winter Elephant Baby Shower

This wintry baby shower in green and gray was designed and hosted by photographer Jamie Sentz for her sister-in-law Mary right before the holidays. A table full of homemade winter sweets awaited guests, including chocolate cake, biscotti, Italian butter cookies, and homemade hot chocolate. Above the table, Jamie hung a DIY banner hung with twine. The DIY goodness did not stop there, as Jamie also made some falling DIY snow with cotton balls and fishing line, table decor with stir sticks and tiny felt elephants hanging from white twig branches, and elephant name tags. The event was filled with family, friends and neighbors. Both mothers were present and both great grandparents made gifts (a quilt from great grandma, and a little car from great grandpa who is 90!). So sweet! Guests parted with delicious chocolate covered pretzels from Swiss Woods. You can see more photos from this shower in the full gallery.
