Woodland Animal Themed Baby Shower

Whether one of your girlfriend’s or sister is having a boy or girl, this adorable Woodland Animal Themed Baby Shower is a perfect way to shower the mama-to-be in your life! From a previous post, this DIY Twine Letter & Branch Sign was made for my girlfriend’s nursery, and we decided it would act as the inspiration for the Baby Shower.

Going along with the rustic and whimsical approach, we added white Manzanita Trees donned with little Birds, and added Moss & Forest Animals to dress up the tablescape. The Bunting on top of the tiered cake was made with real twigs, and reflected the same colors and design on the invitation. We served up S’More Pops, Tea Sandwiches, and healthy snacks too! From the Sign In table to wishing the mama-to-be well with words of advice on vintage tags, we made sure to pay attention to the little details to make it extra special and memorable.

We played Guess the Baby Bump Size, and the all time favortie…Poopy Diaper Game! Everyone was a great sport, and we all got a few laughs out of it. For the Winners, we offered a Mustache Cup filled with a Starbuck’s Gift Card instead of something silly that your guests will never use such as a baby bottle…do we look like toddlers? I recommend giving your guests something they can use!

The Sugar Scrub Favors for the guests were also made with love consisting of a few simple ingredients, and I will post on how we DIY’d it later! Wishing my sweet friend and her husband love and well wishes as they welcome their baby boy soon!

Party S’More Pops!

You will want to party s’more after you try these pops! So easy to make, S’more Pops are perfect for Birthdays, Baby Showers, and even little get together’s or a sweet little treat for the kids. Not only can you keep the traditional campfire taste alive without all the mess, you can even melt White Chocolate and dye it to suit the holiday!

With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, you can add a few drops of green food dye to your white chocolate and dip in Graham Cracker Crumbs or colored sprinkles! S’more Pops have all the sugary cuteness that Cake Pops offer, but are so much easier to make.
