Woodlands (what I've been up to)

In my little bits of free time the last couple months, I have enjoyed chipping away on my most recent "project", a baby shower for one of my favorite people, little Mrs Maggie! I was one of 6 co-hosts, and since she was not finding out the gender, so we wanted to keep it natural and neutral. We decided on Woodland. Im a fan of the non-shower shower (isn't every woman?? maybe not), and so we did 8pm, cocktails (and Izze soda), no games, and open gift display-aaaaand we had a grand ole time :). I got to do my favorite part of party planing- decor! Here are some pics, enjoy!

My lions love a party ;). We didn't have any shower games, so this was kind of a fun non-game. HE got the majority vote, and so Maggie wore a mustache pin all night :)
Kaye did this beautiful branch centerpiece
Hope tree centerpiece~ everyone wrote down their hopes for baby.
Kelly did this gorgeous pinecone cheese ball
Carrot Cake- that's woodlandish right? The stumps were from a friend who cut up some tree limbs :)
Twiggy baked apples by Diana

Pinecones the girls and I collected on our walks. Those little mushrooms have a wire that I attached through the burlap and dotted down the runner- thought they were too cute not to find a use for. Also did little bud vases of ferns from a friends garden.


  1. Love the updates!

  2. Everyone in the group posts on the same Monday together and gets to see who had their blog and what recipe(s) they chose. It's such a fun experience and it's a great way to get new followers, too. There are always new blogs to discover and our club has plenty to offer! go here
