Planning the Forest Themed Baby Shower

I planned this fun forest themed baby shower with a couple other amazing girls and there were rounds and rounds of emails exchanging ideas.

We even had a secret group board on Pinterest to save all of our inspiration. This was such a great planning tool for us! The board is not a secret anymore – click here to follow the rustic woodland baby shower Pinterest board!

Our initial goal was to plan a cute gender-neutral baby shower. When we heard that mama was decorating the nursery with a fun forest theme, I mean.. come on, the choice was obvious.

Woodland Baby Shower Decorations

Once we started looking, man was there tons of woodland baby shower decoration ideas out there! We hung this gorgeous ripped fabric and lace banner up on the wall behind the gift table.

Burlap, cards in envelopes and dried pine cones in the metal basket on the table for gifts at woodland baby shower

We purchased several yards of burlap from the fabric store to use as table decorations, underneath the food, and throughout the shower as cheap decor.

For the woodland baby shower decorations on tables, we used stacked-up wood rounds, large pinecones, vases with dried wheat, mason jars full of acorns, and neutral table clothes.

We played the classic “don’t say baby” game. The fun little twist was the clothespins, which I spiced up with wood grain washi tape (found at Hobby Lobby) and put magnet strips on the back. The pins doubled as favors as everyone got to take home a magnet clip or two!

Woodland Baby Shower Food Ideas

I think my favorite part of the shower was the woodland baby shower food menu, which we totally planned around the forest theme! We really took the shower theme to a whole new level with cute food items and played on the fun wording of the food items with labels and names.

Chocolate Acorns – made with a Hershey’s kiss, a layer of peanut butter, a Nilla wafer, and a butterscotch chip on the top to look like the stem of the acorns.

Smores on a Stick – made with large marshmallows, dipped in chocolate and rolled in graham cracker crumbs, and then added to a skewer stick. For the holder on the s’mores on a stick, we covered a styrofoam floral block with a moss sheet and then stuck the sticks in! I used a similar concept to create this DIY donut stand for a donut themed baby shower.

To hold the labels for the woodland baby shower food, we simply popped them into pinecones laid on their side. Genius, right?

Oh my goodness, I’m getting hungry looking at all the yummy food. Those s’mores on a stick were sooooo good!

It was so much fun to shower my wonderful sister for the day. I hope she felt just how much love we all have for her (and that little baby already!). We are so excited to support her as she and her hubby embark on the journey of parenthood! We had a great time together catching up with old friends and making new friends! I think we need to invent some more reasons to have showers for each other because they are just so much fun – any ideas?!

If you’re looking for more inspiration for planning a forest themed shower, you’ve gotta see this woodland baby shower my friend Amanda recently hosted! It’s adorable.
