Noah’s Ark Baby shower

The theme for the baby shower was chosen by the mum-to-be who knew that she was having twins. It was a lovely theme to work with, animals and pairs and we had more ideas than time allowed. 
3 sisters of the dad-to-be organized the party with a little help from me.
Our aim was to  avoid using anything that would be thrown out after the party. Thus these decorations/ gifts came to be.

The centerpiece was a Noah’s Ark. 

The water was 2 blue flannelette wraps with a whale appliqued on each and a wavy line machine embroidered close to the edges.

The ark was supposed to be made from towels but they were too bulky when folded so another wrap was used for that.

The elephants have crinkly sounding ears.

The Scotty dogs have a rattle in them.

The frogs are heat packs.

The ducks and giraffes are simple softies.

The bunnies and butterflies were made from folded washcloths.

The ‘bunting’ was made from bibs and burp cloths interspersed with animal shapes cut out of fabric, stiffened and a little machine drawing done on them. Everything was lined up in 2’s of course. The food table had a plain tablecloth topped with a piece of animal print fabric over it. All the fabrics came from my stash.

Mum to be had been terribly sick for most of her pregnancy and all that she could bare to eat and drink a little of was plain chicken and raspberry slushy’s  so she got that at the party as well, luckily there was a lot of real food for the rest of us.

It was a fun party and that little family was spoiled by their family and friends.
