Woodland Creature Baby Shower

Yesterday I shared the Wreath I made for the shower we threw last weekend for my friend Jennie, and today I wanted to share the other elements that we came up with for our Woodland Creature theme. Jessica and Katy did most of these details, and they are SO cute! 

The Welcome table, we had a book for everyone to sign when they came in, as a keepsake. It would be so fun looking back when he's older to see what everyone wrote.

Katy made these adorable "Squirrel Snacks" which were trail mix in mason jars, I will say it was good, I had the whole jar finished before I knew it! I wish I would have taken more than one ;) I just love the burlap around the jar.

Since the mommy to be isn't a huge fan of cake, I made these bite size cupcakes instead.  S'mores, strawberry, cookies and cream, and peanut butter cup.  It was easy to just pop one (or 5) in you mouth! ;) I found the recipe for these here.

Katy made these moss covered letters, Jennie's nursery is woodland themed so this would fit right in.

Jennie's sister-in-law made the "acorn cookies" and Jessica made the "Gnome Walking Sticks" which were chocolate covered pretzels rolled in nuts. YUM!  Again I wish I had taken more leftovers ;)

Jessica and I made these flowers out of paper bags, via Martha Stewart. They were super easy and inexpensive.

We had more food made by Katie, the soon to be aunt of Eli.  Which was awesome, she did the food at our wedding reception and I still think about how good it was!  I didn't get any good pictures of the other food, but I think you get the overall idea with these.  We had so much fun celebrating, and now that the showers are over I can't wait to meet those little babies!!

Woodland Creature Wreath

Hi there! For the past month or so I have been in baby shower mode, two of my best friends are expecting back to back and we threw them a shower back to back.  A couple of weeks ago I shared the pink and teal shower we threw for Katy.  This past weekend we celebrated Jennie's soon to be little guy with a Woodland Creature theme.
We had so much fun putting all the details together for this one! Today I wanted to share this cute little wreath I made that was inspired by her invitations.
Jennie was a gnome for Halloween once and for some reason, every time any of us see one, we think of her, so these invitations were perfect. :) And the perfect inspiration for a wreath! 

Since I love felt and wreaths are my specialty ;) I was really excited to make this.  Using the cute little guys on the invitation as a guide, I cut the gnome and hedgehog out of felt.  Then wrapped a vine wreath with twine and glued my felt guys onto it.   For the flag I cut the letters using my Silhouette Machine and glued them on the felt.
The little hedgehog was one of my favorite parts of the invite so I had to include him! He just makes me want to squeal he's so cute! lol

I love the woodsy feel of the wreath contrasted by the soft felt! 
My other friends Jessica and Katy threw this shower with me and everything they did was so adorable, I will share more pictures tomorrow!
