woodland creatures baby shower – goodie bags and decorations and cake

I recently participated in and took photos at a wonderful baby shower.  It was a woodland creature theme full of wonderful ideas and cute little woodland animals and hand-made decorations.  It was the first baby shower that I’ve ever attended and I fear that this will skew my expectations from future ones.  Every detail was exquisitely planned:california wildflower seeds or graham cookie party favors.  hand-sewn bags with twine and die cut tags with various wet-embossed owls.  pretty awesome.

terrariums – live plants, moss, little tiny animal figurines and stones in a base of perlite, charcoal and potting soil in various glass containers

a super-fancy yule log by Erin.  marzipan owls, skunks, mushrooms, pine cones and bunny.

various sweets – puffs and eclairs
