A "Woodland Tea" Shower

It was Lizzy's turn to have a baby shower, so the girls and I worked hard on establishing a theme that would incorporate all of Liz's favorites! Since Liz loves camping we decided on having an outdoor shower, and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect fall day. Our theme involved a tea luncheon with homemade soups and "make your own paninis" over an open fire. Thanks to Pinterest, Alicia and I made most of the decorations and had so much working on creative projects for our Liz.

Going along with the camping theme, we decided to have a "Trail Mix Bar" where each guest could fill her own  mason jar with her favorite trail mix blend. Alicia made the pretty pine cone garlands behind the table.

She also stamped these little owls (which were also used on the invitation envelopes) onto the tags.

I made these brown paper bag flowers using the tutorial on this website: 
And they were really simple to make!

Peanut Butter Smidgens (Liz's fav!!)

At our block decoration station, we used paint, mod podge, and scrapbook paper to create fun personalized blocks for Lizzy's soon-to-be little girl!

Cake time! Liz and her hubby are fascinated by owls, so I decided to do an owl cake for her. The cake was a chocolate pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting...not sure how much the fondant liked being on the cream cheese icing...but at least these owls made it for the length of the shower! :)

Look whoooo's having a baby!!

Congratulations Lizzy! We love you!
