Nature Themed Baby Boy Shower

I adore and have such a wonderful time planning parties! I’ve always had fun hosting baby showers, wedding showers, Christmas parties, dinner parties…you name it, but lately I’ve gotten even more excited about throwing parties due to an amazing party blog my best friend discovered.

Check it out sometime…Kara’s Party Ideas and trust me, you’ll be inspired too!

Today I’d like to share with you a baby shower my best friend and I hosted earlier this Summer. We went with a nature/forest type theme.

The wreath was also part of the the new Mommy’s gift so that when baby Liam arrives she can put it on her front door as an announcement.

The Mama-to-be’s mother made this amazing diaper cake! I’ve never seen one so elaborate and beautiful before!

Frog cake pops were the favors for the guests.

“Acorns”…aren’t those too cute? Made from a dark chocolate kiss, mini vanilla wafer, butterscotch chip and some icing.

S’more Kabobs

Open-faced cucumber sandwiches

We took baby pictures of the future parents, cut them out and glued them onto leaf-shaped pieces of scrapbook paper.

Sweet tea and lemonade was served in mason jars. The guest’s names were on labels to prevent drinks from getting mixed up.

The guests painted onesies and burp clothes. (TIP: We thought it would be cute to hang them outside on my fence to dry…we didn’t realize until later there was a slight breeze. The onesies got blown around a bit and it caused the paint to mess up a little. Moral of the story: lay them flat to dry)

Another tip when throwing a baby or wedding shower is to buy some cute thank you cards. At the party have each guest address an envelope to themeselves. Give the envelopes and thank you cards to the guest of honor to make writing thank you notes ten times easier on them!
