Nesting Baby Shower

I absolutely adore all of the sweet little birdie decor that is so popular right now and was really excited to have a "little birdie" themed Baby Shower. The invitiation read: Mommy is nesting and Baby is about to hatch... LOVE IT!

We had a lot of fun with the theme and although I don't usually use the themed packages, I loved the Nesting Birds decorations. The color combo of aqua and pink was just darling and super fun to work with - great for a baby boy or girl!

We didn't take as many photos as I would have liked, but here are some of my faves...

The Food Table:

The cupcakes were so much fun (Yes, I made them) and were topped with toasted coconut and Jordan almonds to look like eggs in a nest. Here is a (very fuzzy) close up pic of the cupcakes:

The Gift Table:

We played some great classic games...
The "How Big is that Belly" game - I still can't get over how close that was! :

The "Memory Game" - where we sneakily had the guests think that they were going to be quizzed on the items in the basket; but, we really asked them to describe what Mommy was wearing!:

And the craziest game of all, the Mickey & Minnie Diaper Change Race:

Baby Showers are such a wonderful way to celebrate Mommy and Baby. Nothing beats a huge showering of gifts and love by your dearest friends and family to welcome your new baby into the world.

Love, Talulah
