Category Archives: Elephant Baby Shower

For this baby shower I used glass baby bottles. I’m sure you’ve heard about all of the BPA hype. Plastic containers that contain polycarbonate (plastic #7) and specifically bisphenol A (BPA) have been shown to be unsafe for storing food items, such as baby formula or water. Safer alternatives are glass or polypropylene (plastic #5, ie bottles that say BPA-free).

I found these cute yet modern elephant invitations at Zoey’s Attic on etsy.

The cake stands that I used at this party are repeats from the Pink First Birthday that I already featured. Maybe you’ll remember them.

Okay, let me just get this out of the way. I’m a vegan. Yes, I know what you’re thinking and I’ve heard it all before. Putting that aside, I wanted to say that I have had a few requests for this recipe, and with permission from the hostess who made them at this party, I’m posting it here. I obviously haven’t tasted these but they have gotten rave reviews. Thanks Kim!


24 rolls
12 thick slices deli ham
12 slices Swiss cheese
1/2 cup melted butter
1 1/2 Tablespoons mustard
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 Tablespoons poppy seeds

Slice rolls in half so they open. Spread mayo on top and bottom of the inside of each roll. Assemble rolls with 1/2 slice of cheese and 1/2 slice of ham. Place all of these in a baking pan or stone. Mix together the melted butter, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and poppy seeds with a whisk. Brush this mixture all over the tops of the rolls and cover with tin foil. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until heated through.

For this baby shower I helped the hostess find a gift for the new mom–this bib. Definitely one of my favorite baby shower gifts, I give these fabulous bibs to friends all of the time. They are made by the lovely and talented Karen from Lillybelle Custom Designs and the price is a steal, $11.50. And she has tons more fabrics to choose from.
