Forest Friends Baby Shower

We had so much fun designing and planning this Forest Friends Baby Shower back in the fall for our gal Miye and Baby Mariko. 

The Mommy to be is one of the sweetest gals you will ever meet.  And she was one of the cutest pregnant gals and big sister was super excited as well!



 With a nursery theme picked out we wanted to match it as much as we could for the shower and I think it turned out pretty darn close.

We set up family style table by putting two 6' tables together, then covered them with black linens, big burlap squares and added forest looking decor.  moss, rocks, wood rounds and branches cut to make small trees in glass vases.   And check out these adorable printables by Mish Mash by Ash that we printed, framed and used on the tables.


For food and drinks we kept it simple.  Mommy to be wanted a fun gathering for her and her friends but also something kid friendly for those 6-8 year old girls who would also be there. We hung a simple custom made banner above the table and mixed and matched our wood crates with baskets and galvanized buckets to hold the fruit, veggies, sweets and trail mix. For the kids we had juices and Mimosa's for the adults.  We found some adorable animals from We Lived Happily Ever After that we cut out and tapped to colored card stock strips of paper.  Then we tapped them to mason jars to drink out of.


We used real napkins and rolled the silverware in them, then displayed them in a dark wood crate.  To really bring in some of the forest feel we also included fun extras like lanterns filled with moss and glowing candles.


We wrote a fun little poem for the girls table and added lots of woodland and forest coloring pages as well as a woodland ABC's book for them to color in for the baby.






We hope you enjoyed this sweet little forest friends baby shower.  Keep in mind you do not always need a ton of things.  Our centerpieces and table decor was made up primarily of moss, tree branches, wood rounds and rocks. And we loved the large windows at fUSe Studios that let in lots of great sunlight.
