{Real Party} A Shower for Baby Fern

Happy {Mommy Monday}!
 I have a special treat for you today… a {Real Party} post from one of my favorite bloggers,
Lauren from The Little Things We Do.  
Lauren just had a baby shower thrown by her friends, including fellow blogger Becca from Life @ 1521. I was super excited when Lauren said I could feature the shower here because there are so many great details that could translate into a ton of different parties. 
{Decor} 

The shower was themed around the name chosen for Lauren’s little girl, Fern. (Such a pretty name!)
The hosts used rustic details to really make this party special. I love the use of ferns in a variety of bottles and pine cones in jars. All of the rustic details are then contrasted with the softness of yarn.
Baby shower for a baby girl without pink?
 LOVE IT! 
(Oh, and… how amazing is that livingroom?)

{Activities}


Instead of traditional baby shower games the hosts opted for some fun activities. 
(This makes me happy. Anyone else feel incredibly AWKWARD playing games that involve chugging out of baby bottles or smelling chocolate laden diapers?)
The acitvities included guessing baby Fern’s birthday &
Finger Knitting garland for baby Fern’s nursery. 
{The Menu}
The drinks and food from this party make me wish I had been there! The hosts put together a hot cocoa bar with fixins. The fixins included caramels, truffles, whipped cream, peppermints and more. Homemade Gingerale was also served and I can’t wait to try the recipe!
The food table is gorgeous, isn’t it? I love the pine cone filled jars lit with the surrounding tea lights. The stamped flags are also a fabulous and fun detail. 
French toast, scones, blueberry muffins…oh my! 
{The Favors}


The hosts created cute little pom bouquets as favors for the guests. This is a fabulous idea for a couple of reasons: A) Not spending an arm and a leg on favors and B) The guests can put these out in their house to decorate for Fall and will be reminded of sweet baby Fern everytime they see them!
{The Guest(s) of Honor}


Thank you to Lauren for letting me feature this adorable shower on the blog. Congrats to you and your family!

If you are as in love with this party as I am then you might want to check out Becca’s post on it that has a ton more photos and links to the delicious food recipes and a finger knitting tutorial. 

Oh, and the great photo templates used above are a freebie from puglypixel.com.
