Woodland Creatures Baby Shower

16 Aug

This past weekend my sister-in-law {Mariah} and I threw our other sister-in-law {Ashley} a baby shower.

Mariah and I have been planning this thing pretty much ever since Ashley announced she was preggers. We’ve talked in real life, on the phone, on iChat, FaceTime, text, and through Pinterest. We had SO many ideas and plans.

And then we realized it was only two weeks away.

At least that’s how it felt.

We managed to do pretty much everything we wanted to do, and we were both very happy with how everything turned out.

I think Ashley was happy, too. And that’s what matters most.

This is where most of the work went.

And this is probably my favorite thing of the whole shower.

I LOOOVE those cupcake stands! Mariah and my brother MADE them!!!

Check out the cute critters on the cupcakes. Thank you, Cricut.

We had nuts & berries, “acorns,” sandwiches, and some of Ashley’s favorite snacks, each labeled with a cute little sign.

Mariah had these cute little mason jars left over from her daughter’s birthday party, and they went great with our theme.

And a few more table pictures…

Some of the other decorations:

We played a “Name the Celebrity Baby Picture” game, which was very low-key but fulfilled our need for a game.

Ashley got lots of presents and had plenty of superhero/princess/fairy helpers.

Here’s one last shot of the table, and the hostesses.

I can’t wait for little Ila to get here!!!

To check out our Pinterest boards where we collected all our ideas, go here or here.

    Such clever women you are! This was a sweet theme and Ava’s right – it was a perfect setting! Will you plan my next party from afar?

      Anytime! Just tell us the theme and we’ll supply an abundance of ideas. They may not be original, but they’ll be cute.
