Oh, what a thrilling journey it was to help plan a baby shower that would transport everyone into a whimsical world of forests, pine trees, and mountains! With a touch of adventure and a sprinkle of cuteness, we embarked on an unforgettable celebration at the Lucky 13 upper loft near Harris Ranch in Boise. Join me as I share the magical moments and all the delightful details of this remarkable "Let the Adventure Begin" themed baby shower!
Setting the tone for our forest-inspired extravaganza, I crafted custom invitations and envelopes that perfectly captured the spirit of the theme. Adorned with adorable illustrations of pine trees, mountains, and woodland creatures, these invitations were like a portal into the enchanting adventure that awaited our guests. With custom envelopes, the set was so fun to make and deliver. Reach out to me if you're needing custom invites and envelopes for your events!
DECOR + DESIGN
Setup began with only an hour to put it all together! Upon entering, I made a custom sign to welcome the guests. I went with a fun balloon garland, reminiscent of a vibrant forest, cascaded along a fringe backdrop for perfect pictures. I added an adorable teepee, lovingly prepared to hold all the precious gifts for the little one. Amidst the lively colors, a neon sign beamed "Hello Baby," a little beacon guiding us toward the heart of the celebration. It was a labor of love to create this sign, but oh boy, was it worth it! If you're wanting to learn how to make your own neon sign, I made a full tutorial for you here!
No adventure is complete without sustenance, and the host ensured that the guests were well-fed and happy explorers. Delicious pizza, salads, and refreshing beer (for the non-pregnant ones) were served, fueling our adventure-seeking appetites. But the true stars of the show were the custom cookies that effortlessly mirrored the charm of the invitations. These edible works of art were not only delightful to behold but also a treat to savor! The mom-to-be's own mama brought these little beauties.
To keep the excitement alive, we concocted a couple of entertaining games that had everyone eagerly participating. Our first challenge, "measure the baby bump," required guests to channel their inner fortune tellers and guess the size of the beautiful mom-to-be's baby bump.
Next up was the "baby food taste test," a true test of bravery and taste buds. Unmarked jars of baby food puzzled the guests as they tried to decipher the flavors hidden within. Some expressions of surprise and bewilderment were truly priceless. It's actually a lot harder than you might think to figure out the flavors! I also made a keepsake calendar for all the guests to guess the baby's birth date.
As the celebration drew to a close, and the laughter and joy filled the room, it was evident that our forest-themed baby shower had been good for the soul. From the custom-made invitations to the neon sign, the delightful teepee, and the exciting games, every detail was designed to enchant and captivate.
Hosting this baby shower was a wild and wonderful adventure, allowing us to embark on a journey of joy and anticipation. I am grateful to have shared this magical experience, and I hope that our tale inspires others to embrace their creativity and add a touch of whimsy to their celebrations. The adventure continues as we get to watch a life be lived by the new little explorer!

Here are the links to the items I used for this super fun shower:
I like to use watercolor paper for my invites, they are thick, buttery, and divine!
For the envelopes, I bought the one in the pic from a paper company that was going out of biz but these are very similar
I DIY all my signs, the welcome sign is made from plexiglass that I added vinyl to and hand-painted the back for some contrast. These are the sheets I get for my signs
I also DIYed the fringe backdrop using rolls of tablecloth...we've had some fun times trying to get guests to guess what they are made out of!
I designed the game signage which I will be adding to my Etsy shop! I'll put the invite designs there and the birth date calendar as well.
I bought these ADORABLE pillow covers and they go with everything! I just love them and they are super durable.
The fur rug I use for a lot of my events is from Costco but this one is very similar.
