The mother-to-be, Kristian, had chosen an adorable woodland critters theme for the nursery so we used that as the platform for the shower. I knew I wanted to pull in some wood things and thank goodness my dad, brother and nephew helped me accomplish that. Love, love, love the way the centerpieces turned out!! Take a look ~
With the shower being held in the middle of December, my mind was thinking it would be a perfect opportunity to have a hot chocolate bar. Well, as luck would have it, December 12 turned out to be a balmy 70 degree day in mid Missouri. Thankfully the guests played along and at least acted like they were loving the hot chocolate. The signage for the hot chocolate bar came from The Pretty Paper Studio shop on Etsy.
World Market has the perfect cookie jars this year that played right into our theme. How adorable is the owl, fox and raccoon?!? If you want one of your own, you can purchase them by clicking on the critter of your choice: OWL, FOX, RACCOON
The local bakery in Montgomery City, Sugar and Spice Laura's Delights, created the fox cookies. They were as tasty as they were adorable! Laura did a remarkable job on them.
No shower is complete without playing games. The game sheets were placed at each place setting on the mini clipboards adorned with ribbon. Mud Pie Soup had the perfect little printable fox game sheets. These clipboards have been used at several showers and I absolutely love putting all the games on them. Check out the twig pencils -- they added just the right touch!
We sent the guests home with a little token of our appreciation - bird feeder. They were easy to make and were very cost effective.
Now we're just waiting for the newest member of our family to arrive. We all had our fingers crossed he would arrive on January 27 because he would be born on his grandpa's birthday. Looks like he wants to have his own birthday so we'll try to be patient until he decides it's time to meet us.
