{Real Party} Woodland Baby Shower

I recently (January) had the pleasure of hosting a Sprinkle for some dear friends to celebrate the birth of their second child. We wanted to celebrate the upcoming birth of a new baby, but also help the couple get some much needed supplies for the new addition. 
Their first child was a boy and their second is a girl! 
We went with a Woodland Animal theme as it was also going to be the theme for the nursery.
I did a lot of easy DIY projects to help decorate for the Sprinkle. 
The baby shower was centered around sweet activities, yummy food, and the happy family.
 I am not a big fan of baby shower games. Instead of shower games I put together a few simple activities for the guests to do as they chatted and treated themselves to foods and drinks.

Pretty fresh flowers, fun fabrics, and woodland characters decorated the sprinkle.
As guests entered the room they were asked to leave a message for the family in a children’s story book.
I sent my husband to buy the book. I told him it needed to have Forest Animals in it..He came back with Bear In Underwear by Todd H. Doodler— not what I had in mind for a baby girl. But, it was a cute little book! Oh, and the underwear on the bear on the cover were made of real cotton underwear-like material.
I bought a selection of different sized onesies and left out some fabric paint and markers for everyone to decorate onesies for the new baby girl. There were some really cute ones in the mix!
One of the big focal points was the Dessert Table with cookies and three kinds of cupcakes.
We had Toadstool Cupcakes, Spice Cupcakes, and Owl Cupcakes at the party…. check back tomorrow for recipes and tips!

“Rabbit Food,” “Caprese Toadstools,” and “Tree Ring Pinwheels” rounded out the foods. Check back for recipes tomorrow!
Small Jars of Strawberry Freezer Jam went home as favors.
Seriously, how cute is this family?
Check back later this week for recipes for 
Woodland Themed Party Snacks
 and Activity Ideas for a Sprinkle, Baby Shower or Sip & See!
The adorable woodland creatures were bought in a package from Peach Pops Clip Art.
