Recently, we showered my niece with a really fun and beautiful Woodland Themed Baby Shower for her baby boy arriving in October! With rustic decorations and a simple, but delicious party menu, we had a wonderful day celebrating baby Grayson!
My niece is having a baby boy in October and myself, my sister, my mom, and niece’s boyfriend’s mother decided to throw her a shower to celebrate! It was a beautiful day and we had so much fun planning for the shower! Lots of laugh and fun family time together is always my favorite. We are so excited to have another baby to love on in the family and we cannot wait for his arrival!
My mom, sister, and I split up the menu and decided what each would bring. We all had to travel with our food, so the challenge was to make food that we could make in advance and travel with! I think we nailed it and everyone seemed to love the menu! We took some traditional menu items and made them to fit the woodland theme.
My sister arranged her veggies like an owl which was adorable and took the popular caprese skewers and made them look like mushrooms on a log! It was so cute!
My niece Alexis made these chocolate covered pretzel birch branches. They tasted great and looked adorable served in mason jars!
Everyone loves fruit salad but my mom added them to waffle cones to give them that woodsy look!
My sister made some amazing homemade breads to serve alongside the main courses of tuna and lemon almond chicken salad.

I loved these simple log holder place cards from Amazon. They were inexpensive and I saved the logs to use again! The Pond Punch was a big hit with the kids and adults!
Woodland Themed Baby Shower for a Boy
For serving decor, we used clear glass containers and then varied their heights using pieces of wood. Fortunately, my sister was having trees taken down a week before the shower, so she asked them to save her some wood! And yes, we got a lot of laughs over the number of times the word wood was said at this shower 🙂
I added some moss and mushrooms from Michael’s, which rounded out the rustic decor.
You are already so loved baby Grayson! We can’t wait to meet you!!
