A Forest Friends Baby Shower

I recently attended/hosted a baby shower for my cousin. The theme was forest friends, as the baby’s room would be that theme as well. We made sure a lot of the foods & decorations were themed out and this is what we ended up with.

    I really like the shower you put together. I am working on the same theme for a co-worker. I like the cut outs you have on your wrapped package. Where did you find those? Any info will be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you

      Thank you! They were images taken from the bedroom set my cousin chose for the nursery. I saw them online but the resolution wasn’t high enough to print so I drew them in Illustrator and printed them out on cardstock.

        Would you be interested in selling the files? I am having a forest friends baby shower and I would love to include these stickers on the envelope of the baby shower invite. Thanks!

          Hi Melissa :) Sorry, I don’t have the files anymore to give you. I couldn’t sell them anyway because of copyright. But if you’re artistic maybe you can freehand them on the envelope?

    Love these ideas!! That is the bedding I picked as well…I was really bummed that I couldn’t find any decorations to go with that theme for the shower but your ideas have really inspired me on what to do! :)
