A Safari "It's a GIRL" Baby Shower and Diaper Cake

I realized its almost a year since Skylar was born...come Dec. 13, 2012.....well I never did post the baby shower...oh my goodness a ton more to share....all the creativity I need to share and it seems I am always behind in it.....well that's the life of a mom with nine kids and two grand daughters. This diaper cake was my first and I greatly enjoyed making it... I used a whole box of the 100 + diaper box of size 1. The giraffe and elephant were cut on the Silhouette Cameo I used Bazzill papers which I always use for all my cardstock needs I think its the BEST! The flowers are Petaloo . The shoes and baby monkey I bought at Target. The ribbon was actually some I had from the 80's I took the Crafter's Workshop Zebra stencil and black paint and daubed on the zebra prints to the ribbon. This took the wide vintage ribbon that hadn't been used in a long time and repurposed it ! Bam! The white ribbon is simply satin ribbon from Wal-Mart. Crystal loved it!
The baby shower printables I purchased from Tania on Etsy
The banner I printed and used Bazzill Paper using the 1/2 inch circle punch ran silk pink ribbon thru the banner to hang. The ribbon I bought from Wal-Mart.
The paper lanterns came from Hobby Lobby.
The napkins came from Hobby Lobby too.
This was the whole set up.....the balloons also came from Hobby Lobby.
We have a real helium tank from when we did a lot more parties in the past...that was when helium was much it very expensive. We even have the balloon filler part too, you can go to welding supply stores and get the tank and the balloon filler piece to use for your parties. We bought ours in the early 90's so IDK what they cost now....but I did find it on Amazon and the part to fill the balloons with you can find it at those links.
The plastic ware came from Party City  
We wrapped them with the printables from Tania
the adorable cake plate and cloche came from Hobby Lobby
I got the adorable little plastic bottles from Michael's that I stuffed full with M&M's from MY M&M' go HERE you can pick your colors, the saying and DOB of the baby, etc...even put pictures on AMAZING is that! Crystal really liked them. The printable on the bottle is from Tania
