Woodland Theme Baby Shower

My beautiful daughter Lindsey and husband Rich are expecting their first baby in January.  Which means I will be a Mimi for the first time.  :  Excited...ok, ecstatic!! :)  It was a joy and blessing to travel 6 hours north to be at her church baby shower this weekend, given by these two lovely ladies, Kelly and Ellen.

The baby's nursery theme is a Woodland's a darling, fun theme with which to work!  Ellen's beautiful home was the perfect backdrop for all the adorable decorations she and Kelly made.  Here's the chalkboard sign welcoming us by the door.  Rich and Lindsey are keeping their baby son's name a secret, so Ellen likes to call him 'Lil Nut' for now.  :)

A darling skinny pine tree greeted us inside the entry, decorated with paper mushrooms, pinecones, and a garland of acorns.

Darling!  Lindsey loves owls.

The food table was the cutest ever, and held many yummy brunch treats! 
Here we are...the radiant new mommy in the middle with the first time great-grammy on the left (my mom) and the first time Mimi on the right (yep, that's me!)

Mason jars filled with woodland pretties were placed around the table along with mushroom place cards telling what food dishes were displayed.  Isn't it super clever how they used large marshmallows with a slit cut in the top for placecard holders?!

These darling little 'toadstools' were the star of the food show in my opinion!  String cheese stumps topped with cherry tomato halves caps and dusted with parmesan cheese.  I loved them!!

Beautiful home baked and decorated Toadstool cookies were the take home favor.

So clever...a mason jar filled with little red styrofoam beads held the forks.

Adorable name tag for Lil Nut's Mommy...and...

Lil Nut's for Great Grammy too!

Beautiful Woodland Bunting

Such a cute activity...newborn diapers in an antique metal basket along with Sharpies, so the ladies could write a note of encouragement on them to brighten those middle of the night feedings.  :)

Adorable wall art made by a friend from vintage game cards!!!

I love this girl.  God so blessed us with an amazing only daughter.  She will be an incredible Mommy.

Lil Nut's nursery is coming along!!  Lindsey and I had a ball starting to arrange baby's room, putting up the darling vinyl cling tree from Amazon, and unpacking her lovely gifts from the shower.  See little mallard duckie and little hedgehog on the shelf?  Precious!  And that playmat was my gift to her...a Woodland themed one that daughter couldn't do without!

Hope you enjoyed this darling baby shower.  I know I did!!!
