Back in September, my aunt, mom and I threw my darling and glowing pregnant sister a woodland theme baby shower. It was one of the most fun things I’ve done recently. We had a blast planning it–whether on a Skype date, via email, or in person during a visit we were so fortunate to have a few months prior to the shower. Everything came together exactly as we had imagined it. I should also mention there were MANY custom built projects completed by my talented uncle who was so willing to execute the requests we kept throwing his way! Most of the food was deliciously prepared by my aunt and my mom. We were beyond pleased with it all. So I’m excited to share with you today a little peek inside our festive celebration of my niece and her momma!
It didn’t take us long to decide on a theme for the shower. My sister and her husband are all kinds of rustic and Baby B’s nursery theme had already been decided on as woodland as well. We chose the back porch for the location of the party–can’t get much more woodland than that! We had a lovely view of the beginnings of fall taking over.
All in all, it took about 2-3 months to plan this party in it’s entirety. I like having that much time because things get done without a lot of flustered feelings as the party date approaches. And now that the party has come and gone, the due date for my precious niece is quickly approaching: December 6! This is most certainly going to be a special holiday season full of new beginnings! I can hardly wait!
I will try and give as much detail to each element of this party as the pictures progress. If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments above! I hope you enjoy looking at these pictures as much as we enjoyed putting it all together!
