My mom, sister and I gave my nephew and his wife a baby shower. When planning a party of any kind, I think it makes it so much easier to go with a theme. Whether it be summer, garden, sports, or holiday, themes are endless.
The food table was set in a Hundred Acre Wood picnic scene with gingham table cloths, rattan baskets to hold the paper plates, and lots of finger foods. As you can see in this picture, Pooh sits upon boxes which were draped with green fabric. Large baskets held ham sandwiches and BBQ sliders. To keep with the picnic/ red color theme, there was watermelon, homemade cowboy salsa, and cherry tomatoes filled with a ranch cream cheese.
The baby’s name is going to be Aiden. We had bought these yellow paper fans from the dollar store and didn’t really know what we would do with them. I thought they would be cute as flowers for our Hundred Acre Wood. With some styrofoam in a mason jar, that is wrapped with burlap and a ribbon, the flower is glued to a stick which stuck in the styrofoam. The leaves are cut from green paper.
And added these little bees. Each bee is made by wrapping a yellow pipe cleaner into a small oval. Then with black embroidery thread make the bee’s stripes and antenna. The wings are cut from vellum paper and glued in place. Too cute!
