My friends and I gathered together every Sunday for weeks to plan and create a baby shower for our dear friend Laura Silva. We decided it would have a woodland theme and include some of her favorite things.




One Sunday we made tissue paper pom poms and strung them with ribbon that everyone brought from home, another Sunday we made owl fans out of cute pattered paper and painted wooden sticks. One friend sewed table squares and another made terrariums out of moss and little plants she gathered from the forest around her house. Another saved the best of their fall flowers from her garden.




All the great cooks in our group brought every kind of salad you could imagine and there were homemade cupcakes made to look like tiny toadstools.




I think Laura knew she was loved.



But here’s the best part!
