Think jungle animals and elegant decor don’t go hand in hand? Think again! This rustic safari animal baby shower is not only adorable but also super elegant. It goes to show that you can have your three tier animal print cake and eat it too… But really, these parents to-be were showered with a soiree full of fun & games (hello boggle and beer pong), a stunning setup of rustic tables lined with vibrant florals, yummy food and drinks, and people they loved. What more could you want?

With anticipation of welcoming the newest family member, these future grandparents commissioned us to assist in planning and designing this safari themed baby shower! Parents to-be and their guests celebrated the little cub!
Held on the grounds of a private estate in Los Angeles, we filled the backyard with rustic farm tables adorned with burlap table runners and unique vases filled with florals in shades of green, apricot, persimmon, pale yellow and cream. Also placed along the runner were adorable vintage safari animals; lions, tigers, bears (oh my!) giraffes and monkeys! These cute mementos could be found throughout the party. The place settings consisted of wood chargers with textured white china, green vintage glassware, wood handled flatware and taupe linen napkins wrapped with horn napkin rings.
The Kitchen For Exploring Foods served delicious tray passed hors d’ oeuvres and a tempting spread straight from the grill. Guests also enjoyed specialty cocktails “Baby Girl Binder,” “Mama-to-be Mojito,” and “Father-to-be-Fizz” from our rustic bar covered in natural greenery, and more of the adorable vintage animals. Our cozy lounge furniture served as a perfect area for guests to relax as the evening evolved and fun games such as beer pong, cornhole, boggle, yardzee, jenga and pick up sticks were enjoyed throughout the event!
The stunning images were captured by Amy & Stuart who also photographed the couple’s wedding! A true full circle moment.
