A woodland theme for a baby shower is a special setting that can transform any place into a true woodland paradise. Organizing a baby shower with a woodland theme always starts with knowing what woodland creatures to invite indoors and what natural elements to bring in to make the place look magical.
Setting the Tone
Guests will instantly get the hint about the theme once they receive the invitation cards that have enchanting woodland animals on them. If you can’t find something that fits the woodlands baby shower theme, customize one by printing your desired design on special paper. Send out the invites a few days before the event to allow guests to confirm, so you can then have an idea about how much food and what kind of games to prepare.
Where Friendly Creatures Party
With creativity, recreating the woodland is a breeze. For a forest-like venue, set up small trees, twigs, logs and tall grasses all over the party area. Add in rustic elements like dry hay, dried pine cones, brown paper sacks and nests with colorful candy eggs. Spray tin cans with copper paint for yellow-greenish flower arrangements.
Scatter stuffed animals like bear, deer, raccoon, hedgehog, etc. as delightful decorative pieces. With a woodlands baby shower theme, guests can bring the future mom adorable and fluffy forest animals as a welcome addition to the woodland figures and later, in the baby’s nursery room.
An easy, breezy option is to purchase baby shower supplies with a coordinated theme design either in your local party store or online. You may also download and print decorations such as table place mat and stickers for bags, boxes or jars.
The Trail that Leads to the Food Table
Hang solid color animal balloons that lead guests to where the buffet table ends. Add flair to your table setting by putting up mushroom-shaped place card holders to tell what food is displayed. Continue the rustic motif with the same foliage and greenery combined with pine cones and rocks.
No baby shower is complete without the proverbial cake. Delight guests with a Hootabelle-4-tier nappy cake on top of the burlap-covered table. Nearby, make sure the waffle bar does not run short of banana slices, fresh berries, almonds, Nutella, and maple syrup. No matter where the trail takes the woodland creatures, there’s always a sweet treat to remember the whimsical baby shower for many years to come.
