Sunshine Safari Baby Shower

Operation Shower is a non-profit organization that plans and coordinates gorgeous baby showers for pregnant military wives.
I was truly honored to be part of this baby shower that happened 3 weeks ago in San Diego, CA.  I had a great time meeting some new party girls.  This is the best job ever!  Party! party! party! lol

Paper & CAKE designed the fun and bright printables for this baby shower!

Here’s the list of the 12 designers who participated.  We all incorporated products from Pottery Barn Kids.  It was super fun seeing what everyone came up with!

  • Wow, Absolutely beautiful. What an awesome organization to give back to those who give so much.

    I’m out blog hopping today and I’m a new follower. I host a weekly Creative Thursday link party (runs through Monday nights) and I would love to invite you to share this, and any other posts, on my link party at Have a great weekend.


  • It is all absolutely amazing. I'm always impressed by your work and attention to detail. I also love baby showers that aren't so baby themed. Amazing!

  • What a wonderful idea…so great to be able to do something so special for those who sacrifice so much. All of the table settings were beautiful and yours was elegant AND fun! {and one can never have too much zebra!}

    Have a lovely day. hugs, mb

  • makes we want to relive it all over again! thanks Nancy! I'll be in Phoenix soon…we MUST hangout!
