Fun ideas and decorating tips for a Nature Themed Baby Shower

Looking for fun Baby Shower ideas?  Here's a few ideas you may want to try...
The theme of this shower was Nature after the new Mom-To-Be chose to decorate the nursery with a deer and dandelion design she discovered on a crib bedding set.  Invitations/Thank You cards were handcrafted with yellows, white, soft greys and natural brown colors with a mom and baby deer modeled after the bedding design.  Tabletop creations were made with a birch paper covered pot with a beaded tree branch and paper cutout deer ornaments. Simple silk flowers, vases of baby's breath and jars filled with rosemary, sage, thyme, lemon and lime slices added an inviting fragrance to each tabletop setting. Chairbacks were decorated with wide burlap ribbon and sprigs of "naturals" lending a light and airy ambiance to the room for guests to enjoy.

A new book by Annie Lang about a new baby homecoming!  Find it at

In lieu of gift package bows, the hostess (aka my sister-in-law!)requested guests bring a book for the baby to get a good head start on early reading adventures.  This was overwhelming accepted by all the guests, much appreciated by the Mom-To-Be and kid tested by the preschoolers in attendance!

Shower the new dad a bio-hazard kit along with some diapering advice!

Meanwhile, the Dad-To-Be was showered by the menfolk with boxes of diapers and presented with a bio-hazard kit.  The boxed kit contained a bio-hazard sign, a pair of goggles, a package of disposable masks, a large pair of rubber gloves, a set of goggles, baby wipes and a clothespin to complete the set!  For the grand finale...the Dad-To-Be was given a set of diapers by the guests with words of advice on each one like "It stinks to be You" and "This too shall pass...oh wait, it already has!"
