In early April I attended a baby shower for my Step-Daughter-in-law at her mother’s house. It was a beautiful day, in a beautiful setting with the new mom surrounded by loving family and friends!
I was able to help a very little bit by bringing a burlap table runner, lots of fresh flowers from my garden, and just a few little extras to add to the theme- a Woodland Baby Shower. The theme is based on the nursery theme– full of cute woodland creatures, and the beauty and bounty of nature.
Our gracious host, Linda, provided her home as the location for the shower, which itself is set out in the countryside, surrounded by woods, farmland, and horse country. Spring is the perfect time of year to have a baby because everything seems so fresh and new! Linda made these cute cards to hang from her chandelier in the dining room- one side with a letter, and the other with a cute animal.
She was nice to let me share these pictures of her home and drawings on my blog!
Her inspiration was the theme of the nursery. Aren’t they so cute!
She also had a delicious spread of deviled eggs, olives, fresh vegetables, grapes, chocolate dipped strawberries, cheese and crackers, and trail mix. I brought the embroidered tablecloth, which has pretty little Irish native plants on it.
And the cake! Delicious and made in house as well! The cake was modeled after other Woodland themed cakes we found online. I think it came out so nicely.
Lots of fresh spring blooms.
Little details, like this toy fox, made a difference. I’m so glad I’ve been able to use the burlap table runner again!
We also played a couple of games, of which the winners got to choose from the Party Gifts table.
Little Charlie made his debut just less than a month later. Isn’t he a cutie pie?
I think he’s a lucky little guy because he has so many grandparents who love him.
