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!!

Pin It!
