Where the Wild Things Are Baby Shower
Is there anything better than celebrating a new little baby?! I think not! A few months ago my best friend Melissa and I had the privilege of throwing a baby shower for the beautiful Anna from Practical and Pretty! It was her first baby, and we knew that Anna was doing a nature themed nursery. Since Where the Wild Things Are is one of our all time favorite books, a Where the Wild Things Are baby shower theme was a perfect fit. (If you don't own it yet, buy it!) I've done a lot of storybook baby showers and they are always really fun.
If you've read my post about how to throw a baby shower on a budget then you know that I am a big proponent of using what you have on hand to decorate with! For the woodland theme, we wanted to focus on deep greens and browns and I used a bunch of greenery that I already had around my house to get the vibe we wanted! I also used my cute letter board from LetterFolk to add a cute little theme with the baby's due date!

Isn't that bamboo label just too perfect? I got those wooden place card holders forever ago on Amazon and I re-use them for everything!
Melissa loves designing free printable decorations and so she whipped up the adorable "I'll eat you up, I love you so" printable as well as all the amazing food labels! You can print them off to use for yourself right here below, just click the link for the printable you want, download, and print.
Baby Shower Food
You cannot have a party without serving this AMAZING balsamic bread dip! It may be my most requested recipe of all time! It takes two minutes to whip together and is freaking delicious!
We are super lucky that one of our other besties Cassie owns a catering company and so she handled the rest of the food! If you have an event in the St. George area be sure to look her up at Kitchen435 because she is unbelievable! Read on for some ideas for what to eat at your next party...
Drinking water is a great way to save a little money at a shower. Honestly, when there are so many other yummy things around to eat, no one minds if water is the only drink option!
Throw a Baby Shower on the cheap by letting other people HELP!
Doesn't all this woodland theme baby shower food look amazing? I don't know about you, but whenever I am throwing a shower people are always asking what they can do to help-- let them! If you have two people each bring a soup, you whip up a salad and bread, and someone else brings a treat, you are totally set!
We used my kitchen as the serving area but hung out and ate in the living room that is connected to it.
We had so much fun spoiling baby Leo! You should follow Anna's instagram, because she is mega-talented. Good luck with your baby shower!
