Today I’d like to share with you some photos from the family baby shower thrown by my sister, sister-in-law and mom. I’m not one for fancy, glitzy, over the top, super styled parties. It’s just not me. When coming up with a theme, I almost didn’t even want one to try and avoid the cheesy, typical baby showers you may see often. Same issue I’m having with the nursery. There isn’t really a “theme”, but lots of neutral colors, in an attempt to keep things simple and serene and naturally I started adding animal accents, woodland mainly. And apparently I chose lots of things with foxes, guess I love them :)

So that organically turned into this adorable rustic, woodland fox themed party that my sister did an amazing job with some DIY projects and using things I already had around the house! The decor was so cute and as a photographer, I made sure to grab my camera and take a few good photos in between the party that seemed blog-worthy. So here’s some inspiration for a rustic, woodland simple DIY baby shower!

I just love this linen and twine “Baby Boy” banner that she hand-lettered and made a cute little fox out of felt for the middle:)

They gathered some sticks and pine cones from our yards, found some old mason jars and the wrapped sunflower vases I kept from our wedding.

No party is complete in my family without the deviled egg platter!

She found these sweet little fox stickers at Michael’s for simple thank you to-go gift bags.

I actually bought this pitcher for her baby shower years ago! We made some yummy cucumber water to avoid the typical sugary drinks and punches.

I got the fox and owl salt and pepper shakers from Target last year. I guess my home does already have a woodland theme :) And a closeup of another tiny felt fox my sister made with the cute pine cone and stick mason jars wrapped in twine.

I got the wood slice platters for our wedding, I think they were either from Bed Bath and Beyond or Crate and Barrel, they’re great!

They also made this fun party game. Everyone had a different “Would You Rather…” question, a quiz about the pregnancy, predictions on the birth and advice. It was so much fun to hear everyone’s answers to these!

And a simple linen and twine “Mom To Be” banner to adorn my chair for the party.

I’m so lucky to have such a wonderful family to share all of this with. Thank you all, our son will be lucky to have you as well! <3
