The woodland baby shower theme is awesome! Why? It’s cute, it’s neutral, and it’s so easy to set up. There is also so much you can do in terms of decor!

Another reason why this theme is so popular, is because it’s versatile. Mom-to-be can use woodland baby shower decor to decorate the nursery too!
