On March 22, I teamed up and threw a baby shower for one of my closest friends, Christy, along with her sister Jenny and good friend Jennifer. We hosted it at The Boathouse at Sunday Park, and I have to say that I can’t believe it took me almost 7 years of living in Richmond to make it there. Wow, was it beautiful!
Because Christy’s nursery is going to be a woodland theme, we decided to have that be the theme of the shower as well. Through the amazing nature of Google Docs, Facebook group messages, and Pinterest shared (and secret) boards, we were able to co-plan this from three different locations in Virginia. I was in charge of the decorations, and I wanted the ones that I came up with to be able to be used again in some way.
*As a part of the invitation, we asked the guests to bring a book instead of a card to help build their library. I loved seeing the books that each guest decided to bring! It’s so indicative of that person and their relationship with the Mama To Be!
The “Guestbook” Tree Thumbprint Art:
The Table Decorations:
*The stuffed animals are from IKEA and the terrarium parts are from Michael’s.

The Leaf and Critter Garland (to be turned into Baby Boy’s mobile):
In other posts, I’ll talk about how I made the quilt, mobile/critter garland, and terrariums.
