I'm so happy for Marcus and Jenn, and couldn't wait to start planning the shower. After tossing around some other theme ideas, I decided that there was no better way to welcome "Baby Woods" than with a forest theme. I had so much fun planning this shower; it brought out my inner party planner and inspired me to get crafty. My grandmother agreed to let us have the party at her house in Mountain Home, a location that would be convenient for family and friends of the parents-to-be.
The owl cheeseball was a hit with all of the guests. It was almost too cute to eat!
I made the bunting from paper bags (thanks, Ozark Natural Foods!), scrapbook paper and twine.
Everyone who came went home with a bag of "birch sticks," aka, chocolate-covered pretzel rods.
The adorable deer and fox graphics I used on my signs are from the talented Hannah at We Lived Happily Ever After. They are free to download, just click here.
The guest of honor with a couple of baby Grayson's cousins!
It was an honor to put this party together for Jenn and I can't wait to meet baby Grayson soon!
