When it’s time to plan a baby shower, there’s so much to be done. From choosing the games to ordering the food, making sure the day is absolutely perfect takes a lot of work. One of the most fun parts of planning a baby shower is deciding on a theme. There are SO many to choose from, just check out our article on the latest baby shower themes, but one of our absolute favorites is a woodland baby shower theme.
Now, you might be asking yourself, “Is planning a woodland baby shower hard?” After all, this type of baby shower theme includes imagery of trees and cute little creatures… cute little wild creatures! Since you can’t exactly welcome a scurry of squirrels into your living room, how can you throw an incredible, authentic, adorable woodland-themed baby shower?
Even if you aren’t planning a strictly virtual baby shower, you can still take advantage of WebBabyShower to perfectly plan the woodland-themed baby shower of your dreams. Let’s take a look at woodland baby showers, including how to use WebBabyShower for yours, some imagery ideas, and much more!
Why Are Woodland Baby Showers So Popular?
Woodland-themed showers have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason! With a woodland theme, you get lovely, soft colors and adorable creatures. Popular color palettes for a woodland baby shower include earthy browns, deep reds and oranges, greens, and yellows—think anything you would find in nature!
Woodland baby showers are a great option for anyone wanting a gender-neutral theme. If the parents-to-be aren’t finding out the sex of their baby or are straying away from conventional pink or blue themes, a woodland shower is a great fit.
Possibly one of the biggest reasons woodland-themed baby showers are so popular is because they’re both minimalistic and rustic—an aesthetic that is very on-trend right now. Thanks to the rising popularity of “cottagecore” and other similar, soft aesthetics, more and more parents-to-be are choosing woodland themes for both their baby’s nursery and baby showers.

Woodland Animal Baby Shower Decorations
When it comes to creating a cohesive themed baby shower, it’s all about ensuring that the decor is on point. There are plenty of different ways you can decorate for a woodland-themed party, so take a look at some of our favorites below.
Woodland Balloon Garland
Woodland balloon garlands are adorable and make great photo ops. Try to find a garland with nature-inspired colors, such as green, brown, and white. Some kits may even have balloons shaped like woodland animals, such as deer, bears, or raccoons.
Bring the woodlands to your home by incorporating wooden stumps into your decor! You can use them to hold serving platters, display signs, or incorporate them into your table’s centerpieces. You can use actual stumps if you live in a wooded area or buy them online.
Moss is a beautiful addition to any woodland baby shower that can be used as a table runner, backdrop, or as part of your centerpieces. When you combine the moss with the stumps, your guests will feel like they’ve been transported into the forest!
Woodland Animal Cake Toppers
Adding cake toppers shaped like woodland animals, trees, pinecones, or forest mushrooms will make your cake feel like a tiny woodland forest. You can buy realistic toppers or cartoon ones, depending on your preferred style.
What to Serve at a Woodland Baby Shower
Make sure your woodland-themed shower has all the food and drinks your guests could want – and all created with the woodland theme in mind! These food and drink suggestions are a great starting point for you to create a cohesive menu that helps bring your woodland baby shower to life.
Pink Pixie Punch: Give your woodland baby shower a whimsical feel with some delicious pink punch! This is a great idea for a girl’s baby shower. To make it, all you’ll need is pineapple juice, pink lemonade mix, and sprite. Follow this recipe by Lil Luna for guidance.
Green Pond Punch: Having a boy? Consider making this green punch recipe by The Farmwife Drinks instead. All you’ll need is green Hawaiian Punch, pineapple juice, and ginger ale to create this delicious concoction.
Basil, Strawberry, and Lemon Flavored Water: Bring the natural smells and flavors of the woodlands to your party with this delicious flavored water. All you’ll need is a large container of water, basil, strawberries, and lemons. A refreshing beverage for all.
Nutty Chocolate Acorns: Melt some chocolate kisses, then put the melted chocolate in a ziplock bag and cut a hole in the corner to make it like a piping bag for frosting. Use the melted chocolate as glue to combine a kiss to a nutter butter for an acorn-shaped treat. For more guidance, check out this video by Event Answer.
Apple Marshmallow Mushrooms: Avoiding the core of the apple, slice off both sides to create two domes (like the top of a mushroom). Stick two toothpicks in the middle of the apple dome, then slide the mushroom on the bottom. A great woodland baby shower dessert if you’re low on time. For help, check out this article by Room Parent.
Birch Pretzel Sticks: Cover pretzel sticks with white chocolate, then add dark chocolate drizzles to create the “birch wood” look. Tie a few of the sticks together to make them look like stacks of wood. For guidance, take a peek at this article by Taste of Home.
