An Adorable Woodland Themed Baby Shower, “Forest Friends”

Baby Shower themes are so cute and with the world of Pinterest, the ideas are never ending!  

One of the hardest decisions when planning a wedding, party or baby shower is deciding on a theme.  

I have planned and hosted many parties over the years but hosting a Baby Shower or Bridal Shower has always been so special and one of my favorite events to plan.  The ideas and themes are endless and are always so fun!

When I found out my niece, Rachel was pregnant with a baby boy, the wheels of ideas starting turning!    I wanted to come up with a themed that was fitting for Baby Max.  Rachel and her hubby love the mountains and the outdoors so when I spotted the Jellycat animals, I knew I had found my inspiration!

Our decorations began as soon as guests reached the front porch!  We made this cute wood sign to "Welcome Forest Friends!".  Our enchanted forest awaits!

Please meet our inspiration for our Woodland Themed Baby Shower, Jellycat Into The Woods “Hetty Hare”, “Finley Fox“and “Rafferty Raccoon”!   These are the adorable and cuddly Forest Friends were our inspiration and the start of our planning process!  Once I found them, the other planning fell into place.

We wanted to continue the woodland themed baby shower so I continued to search for adorable forest friends.   Who could resist this precious Baby Fawn?  This was the perfect table centerpiece for the buffet table!  We brought in forest elements by using wood slices, tiny acorns, moss and fresh greenery.

We planned a menu that would not only be delicious but also fun and easy to display!  We served chicken salad, sliced meats and cheese served with mini croissants, broccoli salad, back bean, corn & feta dip.  We added some unexpected items as well!  

We served “Acorns”!  We made these with Mini Vanilla Wafers, Hersey Kisses and Peanut Butter morsels.  We held them together with store bought squeezable icing.  Super easy and the perfect addition to our Woodland Themed Baby Shower.

Of course we had....Deer Droppings

Twigs anyone?

We had so much fun planning and hosting this Woodland Themed Baby Shower!  Below is a picture of the buffet table as decorated!  I love to use Burlap in my designs.  Burlap is so versatile and really warms the table. 

We continued the Woodland Theme throughout the house and set up several small decorated spaces, each featuring different types of Forest Friends.  We wanted to utilize the large Great room for Rachel to sit to open her gifts so we decided to create another focal point with the fireplace area.

We love our Majestic Fox mantle focal point.  Perfect for a Rustic Fall Woodland Themed Baby Shower!!

For coffee and desserts, we served a beautiful and delicious Apple Spice Cake and Vanilla Cupcakes!  We decorated the table with burlap, wood slices and fresh greenery.

My beautiful niece, Rachel and “Big Sister” Mady!   We made a special sash for Big Sister Mady to wear.  She is so excited and can hardly wait to meet Baby Max!

We had an awesome day “showering” Baby Max with Gifts, one special gift was handcrafted by Rachel’s Grandfather, “Pop”, and who is also my father.  As soon as he found out Rachel was pregnant, he designed and crafted this “Rocking Cradle”!

Thanks to everyone who came to Rachel’s Woodland Themed baby shower.  It was truly a great day and a very special thanks to my sister, Kim.  We make a good team and I always have fun when we work together!
