So, my last post left us all with me wearing my new outfit and heading to Oklahoma to visit
and help host our daughter’s Woodland Baby shower.
I really want to tell you all how much I appreciate your support and kindness, as I share
fashion finds and wear them.
It is a new chapter of my life and you welcomed me-thank you.
I left our home on Friday morning and drove the four hours to Oklahoma with lots and lots
of rain but arrived in good shape and ready to set up the goodies for the baby shower.
I am very happy to share the details of the shower with you, as I think that you could use
this theme for many gatherings.
It is simple, sweet, natural and classic.
All social gatherings must have flowers and greenery, it is a absolute must to include them in your budget when hosting a party.
Flowers add texture, interest, color and are great fillers for empty spots on your tables.
Great place to purchase flowers is Costco, your local market and of course Trader Joe’s.
For the woodland theme Baby Shower we used the following:
c. Boxwood stems
e. Baby’s breath
Rebecca and I wanted to serve the cake on a large bark slab, but goodness gracious those
slabs are so expensive. We chose to use a wood slice instead, and improvised by
purchasing a extra large wood slice and setting it on top of a mud pie pedestal cake stand.
We covered the slab with wax paper before placing the cake on top of the slice, trimming
the wax paper to fit just underneath the cake, so as not to show.
Frost the cake while on the slab, so you don’t risk the chance of the cake falling apart.
Add some real and faux flowers and of course a cute little deer on top of the cake after
We purchased this galvanized metal and wood sign for the party, knowing that it would
be transitioned into the nursery.
We added a burlap runner, cotton, mason jars with flowers, paper straws placed in a white
ceramic vessel, and a rustic metal two tiered cake stand, for the dessert table.
As a thank you to our guests we purchased Linen bags from Saveoncrafts, stamped them
with a deer, filled each bag with a pack of sunflower seeds and tucked them in mini clay
I love these linen bags, they are not flimsy.
