woodland baby shower

Last week we through our friend Jenn an EPIC woodland themed baby shower.
This is Jenn and Devan's 1st child and is name is Fawkes (pronounced "fox"),
so we thought a woodland theme was fitting.
Sara and I made a tree in her living room out of brown grocery bags.
The "leaves" were circles cut from scrapbook paper.
Name tags from the same paper.
For dinner we served soup, salad and bread.
I found these PERFECT mugs to serve the soup in.
At 10 cents a piece, I think it was a pretty good deal.
Inspiration for Toadstool Salad came from one of my
FAVE blogs The City Cradle.
The drink station was SUPER fun!
Pier 1 donated the FANTASTIC FOX window decal
that we placed on the wall.
We used clothes pins to attach tea, cider and coco packets
to a large branch.
My FAVORITE straws from Garnish in my favorite vintage blue Bell jar. 
The DESSERT island was very yummy.
We had a "Tree of Sweets" where we hung caramel corn in cones
made from the same scrapbook paper.
Porcupine cupcakes.
Owl S'mores from Living Locurto.
S'more cupcakes placed on tree stumps and
covered by glassed domes purchased at the thrift store for $3. 
Fawkes Food was made up of munchies that Jenn has been enjoying while pregnant.
Everyone got some Fawkes Food to take home as a party favor.
This MIGHT be my favorite party thrown!
