Event | Woodland Themed Baby Shower

A couple of friends and I threw a woodland themed baby shower for one of our great friends! Here are a few pictures from the shower. This was the perfect theme for her shower, she and her husband love the outdoors, you can always find them camping, hiking or on a new adventure in the wilderness! 



Decorations were so easy but so cute! I made pendant banners out of brown paper and cut the words out with my mother-in-laws Cricut machine! I also bought a roll of twine from Hobby Lobby with the 40% off coupon! I also made my own white tissue paper pom poms in two different sizes and hung them with string from the ceiling.


Our food menu consisted of Chicken Salad Croissants, Chips and Salsa with Guacamole, Spinach Cashew Salad, Bow Tie Pasta Salad, Fruit Kabobs, and a delicious Grape Ginger Ale drink. A huge thanks to Jodee and Candace for making most of the food, everything was delicious!


We decided to go the a dessert/candy bar for refreshments, because the more desserts the better of course! We had cupcakes, donut holes, Smores' Chex Mix, nuts, and variety of neutral colored candies! A few recipes are listed below, just scroll down!


This cake Jodee had made from one of her neighbors was absolutely amazing! We had her put the carved V on the front for the soon to be baby Von.


I made the most soft a delicious chocolate cupcakes with an almond frosting! Sincerely Sender made the adorable Woodland Animal Toppers.

Chocolate Cupcake Recipe
2 Cups Flour
2 tsp. baking soda
4 Tbsp. coca
1 Cup water
1 Cup granulated sugar
1 Cup Mayonnaise
2 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour, baking soda and cocoa. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat sugar, mayonnaise, water and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture until well blended. Pour batter into cupcake cups and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Frost and enjoy!


This Smores' Chex Mix is not only delicious, it absolutely so easy to make! It went perfectly with the woodland theme! There are a bunch of different recipes online, I kind of modified some that I found. Here is how I made this!

Smores' Chex Mix Recipe
Golden Graham Cereal
Chex Mix Cereal
White Chocolate Chips
Semi-Sweet or Milk Chocolate Chips
Mini Marshmallows
Mini Chocolate Chips

Spread out the Golden Grahams and Chex of your choice on a cookie sheet. I lined mine with parchment paper, less mess! Melt the white chocolate chips and chocolate chips, I use the double boiler method. Once melted drizzle all over the cereals on the cookie sheet. (I put my melted chocolate in 2 different ziplock bags and then cut a hole in the corner. It worked perfectly!) Before the chocolate chip drizzle dries, sprinkle the Mini Chocolate chips and Marshmallows so they stick. Once dry break into pieces and enjoy!

  2. Kitchen accessories make life convenient and leave their mark on the taste and quality of the cooked and served food. A kitchen is like a work place that requires right tools in the form of utility appliances and cooking and serving items. Besides, decoration accessories are needed to add to the kitchen's value as an important part of the house.
