Bring a woodland baby shower to life with a sophisticated look that is a fresh break from being a cute and cuddly critter-filled event. Hugely popular this autumn, our woodland themed inspiration board is anchored on a forest-inspired palette of hues in dark brown, black, hunter green, and berries coupled with gilded and wooden textures.
Inspiration Board for an Elegant Woodland Themed Baby Shower
Select a black and gold color combo for your invitations. This gilded forest invitation from Tiny Prints is hand stamped in gold foil and available with your choice of foil color.
Present a creamy red velvet baby shower cake decorated with simple decor accents like berries, cinnamon sticks, and cake topper consisting of deer. Use a wooden cake stand for a chic rustic effect. See this beautiful cake at La Pêche Fraîche.
Apple cider station
Welcome guests to an apple cider station complete with chalkboard signage, copper mugs, an antique weigh scale holding up a pumpkin! Find this on At The Picket Fence.
Floral crown activity table
If it’s a woodland theme, why not incorporate a floral crown-making activity. This interactive approach is a great way to get everyone involved. Plus, the finished projects can be taken home as lovely party keepsakes. See Brides.com.
Think of a simple tablescape that is nothing short of elegant! Include rustic elements like a menu card made of cherry veneer, a centerpiece of boxwood garlands, pretty peonies made of paper, and wooden slices from Church House Woodworks. Check out the blog of The Sparrow’s Nest for instructions on how to make the menu card and centerpiece using Cricut. Image by Melanie Artz, Artzy Creations
Food to serve
Serve hearty soups and salads together with light and savory sandwiches using fillings like roasted turkey, prosciutto, and tuna. Pumpkin soup, chicken corn chowder, and French onion are a few examples of soups to serve. As for salads, prepare a delicious autumn salad made with a maple balsamic vinaigrette. Present desserts like apple cider doughnuts, apple tarts, and pumpkin parfait.
