A woodland theme baby shower is so much fun for both the mom-to-be and the guests! Bringing a little bit of the outdoors in adds a unique touch to the special day. What’s more, so many of the decorations are low cost – or even free! If you’re lucky enough to live where it gets cold (ha) think pine cones, wood bark, pine needles, tree twigs, acorns and more!

Woodland theme cakes for baby showers
But what better way to start planning a woodland theme shower than to picture the showcase centerpiece cake. Most of the ones we’ve seen are the “naked cakes” with just a thin layer of frosting to let the natural colors of the cake come through. Below you’ll find a woodland baby shower cake with our favorite forest characters. The black bear, baby fox and deer are front and center while the cute camping flags displayed between two twigs are so sweet. Find the recipe on whiskandwonder
Another “naked cake” with cute deer ginger cookies strategically placed on top and the sides. Add a few fern branches and eucalyptus leaves and you’ve got a stunning cake centerpiece.
And too, there’s a naked cake with fruit topping. The powdered sugar topping on the fruit looks like a fresh snow – perfect for a winter themed baby shower. Naked cakes are wonderful ideas and I love how they are displayed on a faux wood serving plate. If you don’t have a wooden serving plate, you can find a very nice one here. What’s more, you can reuse this time and time again for a variety of party themes (think winter wonderland cake 🙂
