A Woodland Rustic Shower Baby Shower

A few weeks ago, I helped host a baby shower for my sweet sister-in-law and dear friend, Mel! It was so wonderful to have a great friend join our family, and now I am sooo excited to be an aunt again to this new baby girl!

The baby's nursery is so precious and has woodland creature details. It is classic, inviting and the woodland creature decor pulls it all together! Whenever I host a baby shower, I like to match the shower theme to the nursery decor so pieces that we use to decorate the shower can be included in the nursery if desired.

Below are pictures and sources for all of the shower details! All photos were taken by our dear friend and amazing photographer, Sarah Carson! I hope you enjoy!

The centerpieces that we picked were birch wood covered vases with a mix of flowers - hydrangea, peonies, roses, baby's breath and tulips. Some of the larger arrangements had curly branches to add variety. We took large wood slices and arranged the vases of varying heights on them. Here are some really reasonable vases that have the same look! These are a little bit pricier but are so pretty! The wood slices were actually from trees that my husband's parents had removed from their yard before the shower!

As guests walked into the shower we had a welcome table with place cards, flower arrangements and a basket of favors filled with honey. I designed the welcome sign using a logo we found on Etsy whic you can find here.  The place cards were made by using kraft cardstock like this with colorful paper attached to the front.

As a gift to the parents to be, we asked each shower guest to place their fingerprint on the tree print below creating pink and green leaves. There are many options on Etsy to pick from including this and this!  We picked a bible verse - Galatians 1:15 and had it added to the print as well.

At every place setting we added a menu, a woodland creature cookie and a tag I designed with paper found at Joanns! These are not featured, but we also gave woodland creature soaps including these cute hedgehogs in cute ribbon wrapped boxes.

As part of the invitation, we asked each shower guest to bring a book for the new baby's nursery! They were arranged on this table with the cutest sign from Hobby Lobby, but there are similar here on Etsy!

Now onto my favorite part, the dessert! We picked a cake that was designed to look like birch wood with a glitter name topper. I love how the cake has an etched heart with the parents first initials!

We also had cake pops from Candy's Cake Pops...they are the best!
