My sister is due in August with her first baby! (Wahoo!!) She is having a little boy and I could not be more thrilled! I wanted to throw her the perfect baby shower! Her and her husband are very big outdoorsy mountain people so I wanted to do something woodsy. Then it hit me! Woodland/Rustic! It was classy and cute but not cheesy! And was totally perfect for their personalities! And the best thing of all….the majority of the decorations were up-cycled!

 If you want a fun, outdoor styled shower this is for you! It was so much fun decorating and thinking of all the fun foods!!! It is perfect for the outdoors gal in your life!!! You could also make it a cute couples shower if you want to go that route!
