I was asked by a good friend of mine to design a Giraffe and Elephant theme for his twins, Amani and Amina.
Because I was invited to party as well. I was able to make large enough items without having to worry about the shipping cost.
I kind of struggled with the color scheme for this theme because the colors were blue and green. Since its for girls, I didn’t want it to look too unisex or even too boyish so I had to think closely what colors to choose for this one.
Have you guys ever had an issue deciding which color scheme to use for a theme? I think I struggled with the colors due to the fact that I wasn’t sure how dark or light the cake was going to turn out.
I designed two different high chair banners and used different colors of pink, yellow, white, and blue to contrast and blend with the theme.
Right after I set up the party supplies, I continued over with my daughter Miah to explore the farm and also the open area with old memory games that I used to play as a little girl
Who remembers tetherball? – Me and my best friend played this for awhile struggling to jump up and down because, well, we are not ten years old anymore.
I also designed a keepsake for them to add signatures as a guestbook. This was the first time I designed this for one of my clients and I certainly think it’s necessary to write down instructions how to successfully execute this look. This picture was supposed to look like the elephant and giraffe is holding a bunch of balloons. The balloons are made out of everyone’s thumbprint with a name signature next to it.
This is where the nightmare started. Someone drew extra line, Someone put a thumbprint way up without a signature or even a reason, and then my favorite one, someone put a pink print, right on the elephants body.
I also designed some centerpieces for the tables. – How cute is this giraffe?

The last thing I designed was a selfie frame. I wasn’t sure if anyone was going to use but it was getting passed around from body to body.
Well that’s it guys! Until next time – Tot ziens
