Lumberjack Baby Shower Party Goodies
Make planning a lumberjack baby shower easy with these party additions. If you're not crafty or are short on time, then adding a few adorable lumberjack elements to the party can be a great way to keep the theme apparent.
Lumberjack themed invitations are the perfect way to announce the baby shower theme to your guests. And if you are using the theme to announce the arrival of a baby boy, then what could be more manly?
Decorations for a lumberjack woodland themed baby shower can be so much fun! Think forests, think nature, think camping, think warm and cozy, think plaid - all of those things would work for this theme.
Here are some lumberjack themed party decorating ideas to get you started:
- Paper Pennant Banners
Paper pennant banners are a great low-cost way to bring your theme to the forefront. If you are able to print and make your own paper banners, then you can make as many banners as you need for whatever lengths you need them.
- Fabric Garlands
Fabric garlands are a super simple and relatively inexpensive way to add some rustic, woodsy charm to your lumberjack baby shower. With some twine and some fabric strips, you have yourself some excellent Pinterest-worthy garlands.
- Pine Cone Garland
Pine cone garlands can be another great addition to a lumberjack or woodland themed baby shower. The materials are simple yet the results can make a solid show at your next event.
- Nature Elements
Woodsy elements can add a nice touch to your lumberjack theme. Consider sprinkling pine cones, pine tree sprigs, acorns, little real or fake logs, miniature pine trees and other forest-friendly trinkets around your event tables.
- Camping Elements
Camping elements would also add some lumberjack character to your theme. Old school gas lanterns, tin cups or plates as utensil or napkin holders, fake campfires for centerpieces and other camping goodies could help to add some warmth to the theme.
- Wood - lots of wood.
Lumberjacks chop wood. That's what they do. So including wood whenever you can will definitely work well with your theme. Tiered wooden cupcake or dessert stands, wooden holders for food labels, wicker/wood baskets for holding party favors or party utensils, wooden logs to hold centerpieces - there's so much you can do with wood!
- Forest Friends
Adding a touch of forest friends whether as a strategically place stuffed bear or fox or even as delicate porcelain figurines throughout your event can be lovely accents to help soften what could be a very masculine vibe.
A lumberjack themed party can definitely have games that play off of the woodsy theme.
Some simple lumberjack themed baby shower games can be the usual printable games with the signature red plaid to tie in with the theme.

Food and Drinks
With this theme, you can definitely have some fun figuring out a menu for your guests.
- Breakfast Fare
If you are having a morning or brunch-type baby shower, then breakfast foods would make a choice for menu options, especially for a large amount of guests. With some crockpots, you can keep bacon, eggs and hashbrowns warm. You can also have stacks of pancakes with warm maple syrup ready for consumption. And plenty of coffee and orange juice. Maybe even some mom-mosas for the lumberjanes in the group.
- Camping Meals
Camping dishes are usually simple and hearty. With this theme you can offer some tummy-pleasing dishes like chili and cornbread, a potato bar with all the fixings, mac n cheese and you might even add some campfire treats like smore bites or brownie squares.
- Comfort Foods
Any fall themed baby shower, even a lumberjack themed one, could do well with serving some comfort food dishes. Mini chicken pot pies, macaroni and cheese, biscuits and gravy and other soul-comforting food would be a hit.
- Go Small
Finger foods or appetizers can make for another great spread for a lumberjack themed shower. When you think lumberjack, you think big - so switch things up with the menu by going small. Sandwich pinwheels, mini meat skewers, single serving salads or fruits in little cups, and other handheld foods can help to balance out the party.
If you are hosting an outdoor baby shower or have a backyard to work with for your event, then you might want to include some outdoor games. Bean bag toss, darts, horse shoes, ring toss and other similar type games would be a great way to keep everyone entertained - especially if you are planning a family-friendly party.
