This past weekend, I was thrilled to be part of hosting a baby shower for one of my dearest friends due with a baby boy in late July. When thinking of a theme, I was immediately drawn to her love of nature and found the perfect locale – a Great Room in the school where my boys go and went – across the street from the Chapel in which she was married. Located on a Children’s Farm, the rustic setting and log cabin themed room were the perfect place to host a nature-inspired baby shower.
The shower theme was simple to put together with a little help from Target and Hobby Lobby. Everyone pitched in and the elements were nature-inspired while also keeping mom-to-be in mind.
This banner was created with elements from Target’s DollarSpot.
I found these adorable signs that doubled as decor and will work as a great addition to baby’s room!
Balloons at the entryway instead of outside, so as not to give our secret away.
Little Bub – ready to meet us in just a few short months!
Fresh flowers as centerpieces were the perfect beautiful accent throughout the room – they also made great prizes for games and for the hostesses. These additions by mom’s friend were beautiful!
Food from Papa Joe’s – YUM!
A calendar to guess when baby will arrive and an extra invitation since the shower was a surprise!
The tables were cream tablecloths, burlap runners, cups with accent stickers, striped straws, favors, and hues of green, blue and beige. The floral centerpieces were the perfect POP of color (tins from IKEA).
We asked guests to bring books to start baby’s library and I found those adorable wood block letters at Hobby Lobby – the perfect addition to this table, but also now baby’s room. And nope. I didn’t make those pom-poms – Grandma and Grandpa separated pre-bought ones out for me!
Cute critters and soft colors were throughout the room. Let’s not forget CHEVRON!
Adorable favors put together by grandma and auntie – Ready to Pop! filled with popcorn and with a beautiful poem about baby’s arrival.
We also added flower seeds with fertilizer and mulch in a purple hue for guests to grow their own little bed of nature at home. These tags were the perfect addition, put together with twine!
More poms, more burlap, and another cute sign!
Nostalgia with adorable pictures! <3
A beautiful day was had by all!
Have a wonderful weekend!
