This shower was such a joy to throw for me because it was for my gorgeous sister (in law) and my beautiful niece Paige. The shower came together in such a beautiful fashion and I just loved so many of the details included in the shower.
We chose a coral and mint woodland theme to match the guest of honor’s
baby nursery. The gorgeous photography by Megan’s Many Memories was magazine worthy and we had some beautiful shots of the shower. A few of the main features of the shower I loved were the dining table centerpieces & the adorable onesies made by my mom, the yummy and super cute cake made my sister, the moss covered sweets table featuring goodies to match our fun party theme, all of the cute custom paper party goods, and the beautiful way the dining tables layout turned out. The popcorn bar and the entrance table with games and guestbook onesie were a hit with the guests. And I loved the sentimentality that the my sister in law’s mother put into the venue and the special “favorites of the parents” cupcake order! Overallthis shower turned out absolutely incredible with all of the wonderful help I had with it!
For this very special shower, we went with a theme to match the soon to arrive bundle’s nursery! The guest of honor has done her nursery with a woodland theme centered around owls, deer, and birds all in grays, and corals, and mints with hints of ivory.

My sister in law’s mom rented the venue – which was also the same chapel / event center where the soon to be parents were married. The layout of the venue is gorgeous and sits right beside a beautiful pond! The dining table area was in room with glass windows that overlooked the pond.
My mom made all of the gorgeous greenery centerpieces for the eating tables. She used various ferns, mosses, twigs, and tiny little coral and mint flowers. She placed each of the centerpieces on rustic chargers accented with acorns and mini pinecones. She also placed matching party graphic picks in each of the arrangements.
The eating tables were all draped in coral linens with mint table runners. Each place setting held woodland style plates and napkins
from Hobby Lobby decorated with plate decals and napkin wraps by Water Walker Events.
My mom also made a couple custom onesie’s with the party logo printed
on each one with matching ribbon accents around the neckline. These onesie’s
acted as the guestbooks. Each guest took their turn signing the onesies.
Also on the table that greeted the guests, was a personalized bottle filled with chocolate
kisses that my younger sister had made up. Guests took turns guessing how many kisses were in the bottle. The guests could also move down the table to the end where they were each allowed to make a special boutique headband for the – soon to be arriving – baby girl! This kit was ordered by the mom to be so she would have gorgeous little headbands for her new baby girl!
She ordered the kit from an online Etsy store called Luxe supply co. Guests all also played
“Guess the Baby Woodland Animal Name” Game.
My sister was the game hostess – she ran all the games and supplied all of the wonderful
gifts to give out for the games. For the game gifts, she placed 2 of her businesses
Skyscraper Mascaras and 2 of her Mega Matte Liquid Lipsticks (Candy and Creme Brulee)
in cute little tin buckets and finished with off with a little tissue paper. She gave the
winner of the bottle game a gift and then gave the bottle to the mom to be – who loves chocolate!
Guests were served a light dinner of deli meats and cheeses, rolls, veggie tray with dips, fruit tray with dips, tortilla pinwheels made by another paternal auntie to be (who also made the cake). They were also served delicious chicken salad and croissants made by the maternal grandmother. The dinner serving table was graced with two centerpieces made by Water Walker. We also served Woodland Punch, water bottles, and sweet and unsweet tea.
I also styled a “She’s Going to “Pop”corn Bar”.
It featured caramel corn, kettle corn, buttered corn, and cheddar corn all from
my favorite popcorn vendor – Dyer’s Gameday Popcorn.
The popcorn bar also hosted several toppings and candies: Kernel Season’s brand popcorn seasonings in Buffalo Wing, Bacon Cheddar, Cheesy Jalapeno, and Garlic Parmesan – from Walmart. There were also mini sweettart tarts, M&M’s, Gummy Bears, Jelly Beans, Hot Tamales – all from Walmart. Butter Toffee Peanuts & Glazed sunflower seeds were purchased from Dollar General. East guest could scoop up their favorite popcorn blend with one of my custom made scoops – plastic scoop wrapped in twine and matching party ribbon. They could place their favorite mix and toppings/seasonings in one of our custom personalized popcorn boxes with matching party logo and themed decor.
The sweets table was designed and styled by Water Walker Events. The sweets table featured a mint woodland scene mini backdrop framed by sheers wrapped around a backdrop holder and embellished in matching paper fans in the party’s theme and colors.
I also hung a branch decorated in coral and green flowers onto which I hung the sweet new bundle’s name banner and accents.
The gorgeous buche de noel cake was made my older sister and was made to look like a fallen log which we graced with one of our adorable owl truffles.
My sister in law’s mother also ordered the couples favorite cupcakes (carrot cake
for the dad’s favorite and chocolate for the mom’s favorite) from Merritt’s, a local bakery shop. These were also to be a sentiment from the her as these were the same cupcakes the couple had ordered for their wedding. The delicious cupcakes
were ensconced in some of my shop’s woodland cupcake wraps and topped with custom
made paper fan toppers with matching party theme logos.
Mini Krispie Treat Pops, Golden Berry
Peanut Butter Cups (to look like pinecones), “moss” Sugar Cookies, Dipped and Decorated
Pretzels Rods, and “Owl” Oreo Truffles were all made by Water Walker Events.
I loved including a moss covering across the table to give the table a little more wood-sy feel.
We had a basket of empty woodgrain embossed bags from Found Somewhere in Time available for the guests to take home goodies in.
Paper Lanterns, Paper Tissue Balls, Paper Tissue Fans, and Paper Tissue Garlands were all strewn across the different table and fireplace fronts and around different corners of the room. These paper decorations were all from oriental trading. All Custom Printed Decor, Banners, and Fans (printed in party theme, patterns, and logos) were all provided by Water Walker Events.
Each guest was greeted by an Owl Favor box – created and made by Water Walker Events – filled with custom personalized wrapped mini chocolate bars. Over the eating area hung beautiful tissue fans in mint and coral – from oriental trading.
Lastly, I made custom corsages for each of the great grandmas, grandmas, aunts, and a special one for the beautiful Mama to be.
I’ll finish out this post with some pictures of my beautiful sister in law at her shower! And at the bottom – a list of vendors. If you have any questions on any of the items, just ask and I can either answer or if longer than a quick reply, I will make a post in regards. I didn’t go into much detail on any one particular item at the shower since we had so many beautiful details and pictures included that we shared today!
