I had the privilege to host a baby shower for a dear friend this last weekend. She loves the movie “The Fantastic Mr. Fox” so we threw her a Fantastic Mr Fox baby shower. I couldn’t find very many ideas for this shower when I went to Pinterest to look so I thought I’d post what we did so that it will be out there for anyone else wanting to do something similar.
Gluten Free Cake (I like to cheat and use Betty Crockers Boxed mix)
We put movie quotes that had to do with food on the table.
“How can a fox ever be happy without, you’ll forgive the expression, a chicken in it’s teeth?”
We tried to go for a “feast” type feel for the menu
Lovely cupcakes. We got the cupcake toppers from Etsy.
Co-host and dear friend Stevie and her adorable squishy baby Atlas.
Feast provided by Boggis, Bunce and Bean.
Co-hosts, Stevie, Lindsey and Olivia
Fox Diaper Cake
Party favors. I got all the supplies for these at Hobby Lobby.
Inside each bag is a Ginger Nutmeg Apple Snap (from the movie)
“Have you ever tried one of Mrs Beans famous Nutmeg Ginger Apple Snaps?”

Alison was kind of enough to let us use her lovely home to host and she also made these gorgeous bouquets with real birch wood wrapped around the vase.
Coffee Punch and blueberry lemonade
“Beagles love blueberries”
Lindsey drew this motorcycle print for Colleen as her guest book.
Guests would leave their thumbprint and than sign their name.
Hope you enjoyed.
