Nature and Twig Themed Baby Shower

My sister's beautiful baby girl will be here in a number of weeks, and this weekend we  celebrated. Having thrown her last baby shower for my nephew, I was worried I used up every last good idea in my brain. Good thing ideas don't work like that. Phew.

Early on I found this fabric from Spoonflower as the inspiration for the invites, colors, and table decor. My sister knew one thing for sure, she wanted hot pink and emerald green to be the colors. I ordered several yards of the fabric and hemmed the edges with iron on hem tape, and used the fabric as the table covering. And from there everything fell into place.

The branch hanging over the table was my jumping off point for the tree/branch theme. I wrapped a few different yarn colors around the branch and then used this tutorial to make the fabric flower garlands.

The utensil bags are from Bake It Pretty, and I used baker's twine around each one.

My husband was kind enough to cut the stumps himself with a chainsaw, and then he used a belt sander to smooth the tops. He also cut smaller pieces of wood from a small branch that I used as menu labels.

I tied a little felt ball on embroidery thread to each champagne glass, hopefully to help people keep track of which glass is theirs, and it was bonus that they looked so festive!

The dessert table was set up with chocolate covered strawberries and cupcakes from Vanilla Bake Shop. If you are in Los Angeles, do yourself a favor and visit!

I am working on a separate post with menu items and a few recipes for those that requested.
