Jessica Alexander has always loved giraffes, a not-so-secret-infatuation that inspired her modern, whimsical baby shower. Hosted by Jessica’s sisters-in-law, Kim and Kristen, the warm and sunny celebration was whimsical and unique in every way. “Ever since I was a young teenager I’ve loved giraffes,” said Jessica. “My sister-in-law Kim has known this, and had been secretly collecting anything giraffe for years! She used the shower to finally gift the stockpile of stuffed-animal giraffes, giraffe frames, giraffe books, and giraffe children’s toys.” Foxgloves & Ivy created a not-so-literal jungle filled with organic flower arrangements in subtle shades of yellow, red and green. Set at the heart of the party was an almond pound cake flavored, giraffe-shaped cake that was a hit with the mama-to-be. Images by Kristen Alexander Photography.
Though giraffes certainly ruled the decor, pops of bright yellow roses, straws and signage also made for a gender-neutral and sunny shower atmosphere.
Can you believe that giant giraffe is actually an almond pound cake!? The geniuses at Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes truly outdid themselves with this interpretation of Jessica’s most beloved animal. And did you happen to notice the pacifier in it’s mouth?
