Recently, some friends and I hosted a baby shower for a mommy-to be at the Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach. We decided to go for a sweet jungle theme which was quite easy to work with. Lucky for me, my lovely teacher; Michael Gaffney assisted me in making flower choices the day before….!
Elephants walked down the center of the table each filled with a bird of paradise and sprig of pink alstromeria to make the look a bit more delicate. Bear grass accented each arrangement and looked like water spraying out the sides of the elephant. Each elephant had pink and green tea leaves in front and behind them to act as tracks and lengthen the arrangement on the table. Pink anthuriums accented the table in various spots.
