I had the pleasure to help with a shower for a special new mommy, Lacey,
who will soon welcome a precious baby boy into this world.
All babies are miracles, but little Eli was never suppose to be.
At least that's what the doctors told his mom and dad!
But God had another plan... what a testimony!
My very talented and creative friend, Julia, hosted the elephant themed shower.
I was pretty excited to be on board to assist!
The event was held at Julia's cabin on the pond,
...what a view!
So where do I start?
How about with the food, seems like a great place wouldn't you say?
Brought by different ladies, the collection of food was beautiful and tasty!
Julia's Chocolate Bon Bons (Truffles) Recipe,
easy and so delicious!
Julia is a wiz with her Silhouette Machine, which came in handy
in carrying out the elephant theme,
making vinyls for different things, and whimsical cardstock banners.
What's a shower without a corsage for the guest of honor?
Julia personalized a little stuffed elephant, by giving him a vest and ribbon that coordinated with the colors of the shower.
I was handed the materials to make the wreath, my first of this sort.
After several rough starts, it came together.
Beautiful quilt made by Julia's mother...
Wanting my gift to be personalized for baby Eli, I ordered several monogrammed things from Etsy, and stuffed them with other elephant themed items in the cute tote below.
My daughter, Ashley, who has an Etsy vinyls shop, made the cute "Eli elephant" decal.
If you have any vinyl needs, check her out!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Drop back in tomorrow, for Soul'spiration Saturday...
