Welcome to my Woodland Party! In celebration of our little one-to-be, my husband and I threw a brunch for family and friends. Join me as we explore the forest land full of moss,
nests, and woodland creatures. Preggos me can't wait to eat :)
Egg Tree and remind me of a fiery sunset.
Paper mache mushrooms "grow" out of the moss while white roses and pink cherry blossom branches anchor the end of the table runner.
A family of deer navigate the mushroom wonderland. Dyed eggs rest on silver platter.
The food has been set and we're ready to begin the brunch!
Cheddar jalapeno crackers, cheeseball pinecones, and a honey baked ham for sandwiches.
My husband bought this gorgeous ceramic leaf for me on our Parisian Babymoon. I'm so in love with it! Different sized cupcakes make for a more organic appearance.
Did these hand-painted leaf cookies fall from a tree out of storybook? Another beautiful treat made by my aunt.
My sweet mother-in-law and mother helped me create these enchanting deer cakes. One was a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting; the other, a vanilla cake with buttercream frosting. Topped with green sugar for the forest floor and deer families with a fawn. Crystallized ginger created the boulders, and I crafted the red mushrooms out of marzipan.
The drink set-up in our backyard was complete with a punch bowl, pitchers, moss, and a grey fox, of course.
Wood rounds from a floral market set the stage for the drinks as the fox looks on to make sure all is running smoothly.
My husband, the trusty bartender. He made a refreshing gin and champagne punch, mint and cucumber lemonade, and his favorite, negronis, for the guests.
Embroidered bird towels and a nest with spotted robin's egg soaps give the washroom a sweet touch.
Bark candles light up the mantle, and if you look carefully, you may spot a bird's nest in the pussywillow branches!
