John Deere Baby Shower

As soon as I found out my sweet cousin was pregnant, I was already jumping at the chance to throw her a Baby Shower.  I absolutely love planning parties – can you tell?!

We live in east Tennessee and she's quite the country girl, so when she found out that she was having a little boy {Mr. Brantley – can't wait to meet him!}, she told me she'd like to have a John Deere Baby Shower theme.  Hmmm.  It wasn't exactly what I planned on, but we could roll with it!

I don't know about you, but when I plan Parties, Showers, anything – I do them as efficiently and inexpensively as possible.  Whether I'm spending my own money or someone else's there are ways of decorating on a budget.  One of my favorite ways to do this is to get key pieces of your theme and then decorate with a few key colors to tie everything together. 

John Deere Cupcakes

With the John Deere Baby Shower, I purchased the John Deere-inspired artwork, complete with "It's a Boy" and Brantley's name.  I punched out the circles to use as Cupcake Toppers.  I also used the artwork for centerpiece flags and stickers to put on Bubbles {for small party guests} and Mason Jars that were our table centerpieces.

John Deere Centerpiece

Each table had a quart Mason Jar with yellow or green crinkled paper and two Marshmallow Pops.  I love making these Marshmallow Pops because they're always a hit {they're yummy}, relatively inexpensive and easy to make, and you can make them go with ANY theme.  I doubled up the marshmallows on these, put them on a cute paper straw, and dipped them in candy melts before rolling in sprinkles!

I surrounded all of the centerpieces with little felt cut-outs.  I had Baby Bottles, Baby Rattles, Tractors, and of course the John Deere "deer" cut out in green and yellow felt.

Although these were made a bit different, they're pretty closely made just like my tutorial of the Goldfish Marshmallow Pops that I made for Moreaya's Beach Birthday Party.

Baby Shower

I chose to focus on the "country" aspect of John Deere with both our decor and our finger foods menu.  Sophia even had a few John Deere toys that we tied balloons to and used to decorate the food tables.

Food

We put all of our food in baskets with fabric lining.  I came up with some fun food ideas and we served:

  • Pigs in a Blanket – Little hotdogs wrapped in crescent rolls
  • Cow Patties – no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies
  • Chips
  • Goldfish
  • Haystacks – chow mein noodles covered in butterscotch
  • Candy Pacifiers
  • Cupcakes
  • Lemonade

Gone Fishing

I had lots of leftover Goldfish from the Beach Party, so I stuck a little sign that said "Gone Fishin", made a little makeshift fishing pole, and they fit perfectly in the country theme!

Candy Pacifiers

I can't take credit for these little cuties.  Another family member made them, but I had to share!  They were too cute and a big hit too!

This turned out to be an easily adaptable theme and a fun one too!  If you have a little guy or gal that loves John Deere – or country/cowboy themes, you can really have fun with it!

    Hi there! We are also throwing a John Deer themed baby shower for my niece. Would you share where you purchased the themed prints?

  3. I love party themes! And I totally love the mason jar idea. I may just have to use something similar for my son’s birthday party :)

  4. Holy cow! This is awesome! I’ve never seen anything like it. I love that it is such a different theme than other baby showers…unique and memorable!

  5. You’ve got mad skills! Great theme (though like you, I would never have picked it). I will have to try the marshmallow pops for the baby’s first birthday.

  6. I love this, now I just need someone to get preggers so I can do it haha. John Deere is a huge thing where I live!~
