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
a lovely view of oakland and lake merritt
kids tables with coloring and DIY masks
yummy sangria filled with apples, lemons, and oranges, peach juice, and baby shower labeling
owl food markers and pine cones and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the kids
gnomes and more pine cones
hand sewn hedgehogs and another terrarium with a lil mushroom
more fancy yule log and marzipan owls, and a skunk and a rabbit
Closeup of a terrarium and hedgehog. The little deer figurine (and the other animal ones) are surprisingly expensive!
paperwhites and a little bluebird
the bunny lost its ears!
My friend chris hand-felts and sells scarves that look like bacon (http://www.etsy.com/shop/chrischunski). We did a little photoshoot yesterday.
