My favorite parts, aside from the general enjoyment of socializing, were the pinata (I had to get a photo of my grandma taking a swing) and the strawberries. I insisted on dipping my own chocolate strawberries for the shower because it gave me an excuse to leave work early to get it done, and I find it relaxing.
Before the baby shower I was going to decorate Reese's room in a red and green ladybug theme, but I decided to go with a more gender neutral decor after some baby gifts that had giraffes on them. I fell in love with the giraffe, and decided to go with a jungle animal theme. Unfortunately, once I had purchased the crib bedding, it looked really boyish. I tried to remedy that by throwing pink anywhere I could. I created some wooden wall hangings of animals using the bedding animals as a template, but I put them on a pink background. They aren't all professional or anything, but I am pretty proud of them.
