Woodland Baby Shower

Recently, some friends of ours had a baby boy.  Before baby Ellis was born, we helped host a baby shower for the mommy and daddy-to-be, Troy and Brittany Johnson.  Ellis’s nursery is a woodland theme, so we decided to make the shower coordinate with his nursery.  Here’s what we came up with…

We had a table at the entrance with photos of the mommy & daddy-to-be clothes-pinned on jute across a vintage frame.  We also had the framed invitation and the favors on the table.

This is a wishing tree we made for Troy & Brittany.  Each guest could fill out a card for baby Ellis and hang it on the tree.

The cards had things on it like: “I hope you learn __________________”, “I hope you aren’t afraid __________________”, “I hope you love __________________”, “I hope you laugh __________________”, etc.

The couple has a great sense of humor, so to see what their friends wrote in the blanks was quite entertaining.  In this picture both of the grandmothers are laughing at some of the wishes on the cards.  (By the way, I sure hope I look as good as they do when I’m a grandmother!)

We used more vintage touches with Fenton glassware.  We used it on the wishing tree table and the dinner tables.

Here is an example of one of the arrangements on the dinner tables.  Weren’t they precious with the old blocks around them?  Oh, one thing we learned- if you are doing an event on Mother’s Day weekend, make sure you don’t just stop in for flowers.  The florist was almost out!  Good thing they had these that looked perfect in the vases.  Our friend Mary did all the centerpieces and she did great!  Under the vases were small “logs” cut from branches to add more of a “woodland” touch!

Here is the drink table.

We had water bottles that matched the invitations.

Each of the guests could take home a set of 12 note cards and a pencil in a neat little bag.  These were for the girls and the boys got a little more “manly” geometric design- no whimsical art for them!

Here is their coordinating thank you notes:

Here’s the mommy & daddy-to-be!  Of course, they are now proud parents of an adorable little boy.  As long as he turns out like his mom he’ll be ok!

We had such a great time planning and hosting this shower!  Hope you have a great weekend!

About to Hatch

It is perfect timing!  We just had our post about the Little Birdie Pink Birthday Brunch and guess what we found!  Don’t think little birdies are just for little girls’ parties!  With some formal touches, this party theme can be an amazing baby shower or wedding shower.

One of our favorite entertaining and hosting blogs, Hostess with the Mostess, had the most beautiful photos from a Bird Baby Shower.  Here are just a few of the shower photos.

There are so many beautiful photos from the bird baby shower, they had to be separated into two different posts!  Here is part one and here is part two.  Are you interested in hosting a formal bird themed shower or party?  HollyDays would love to work on some beautiful invitations and paper accessories to fit your decor.  Hope you enjoy these photos as much as we did!

A Little Birdie Told Me…

We just received some of the cutest photos from a party from this month!  Sophie turned 3 and her mommy planned a super cute “Pink Birthday Brunch”.  The party decor included pink damask and birdies.  The girls dressed up in their favorite party dresses and from the photos, it looks like they had a blast!  We created the invitations {They are available here} and the matching party favor stickers.  The cookies are from Icing on the Cookie.

A larger photo is available on our Happy Customers page.

Thank you for sharing the photos, Sophie!  Hope you had a great birthday!
