This last weekend was magical! My mom and sister drove 7 hours (with two littles!) to give us a baby shower. We had all been working separately on projects for a while, and were having so much fun with the theme (woodland). When they came we were able to finish up last minute things together (like making Persimmon Coffee Cake, mushroom and acorn cookies, and picking out the cheese for the board).
|Deer and Little Birds- SO cute!|
Sarah made all the adorable little critters, and my mom found a mobile at a garage sale we can use to hang these little guys up for the baby's bed- they are perfect! Thank You!!
My mom made this centerpiece, no doubt finding the things she needed right outside her door (it's beautiful up where she lives)! She used clay for the hedgehog faces, and they came out so cute!
|It wasn't ALL sweets!|
We made chocolate chip cookies for everyone to take home, and my mom used her Cricut machine to cut out the cute little tags. We also had yummy chocolate chip pumpkin bread that Sophia and Isabel made all by themselves. They are becoming quite the bakers, which thrills me to no end!
We also set up an iced tea bar- Sarah brought flavored syrups to add to the jars...
|Write your name on a tag...|
|Unsweetened tea in the beehive...|
|Add ice and your flavor (Blackberry was popular!)|
|And grab a coaster!|
|The Pear Cider was a big hit!|
OR, if you were cold, there was Pear Cider, and coffee...
We really wanted our friends and family to feel pampered and to have fun at the party. It was so much fun planning out details (and whittling a lot of projects down!). I am so thankful for every single person that was able to come and spend time celebrating this new little baby with us!

It was so much fun, and sooo good to see everyone. I didn't get half the pictures I wanted because we were all busy talking and catching up. I'm hoping to get pictures from other people taking them as well, but I definitely have wonderful memories from this day. I am so thankful for everyone(and their generosity!) who came from near and far to share this with us- we definitely were feelin' the love!
