we threw a baby shower for a new mama-to-be last saturday and it was so much fun. i was in charge of invites and decorations (my favorite role to play, let's me be miss crafty-pants.).
i've had so much fun planning this bird themed event for stacy. she's super trendy, loves anthro and is planning a nature & anthro inspired nursery. so, that's why we went with the birds (plus they're so cute and so many ideas w/ nests and all).
here's some photos from the day of. (taken by my very talented friend tiffany. whose website you can see here.)
the lovely mama-to-be
love these girls
one of my favorite things i made: a wishing tree
we encouraged the guests to write wishes &/or prayers for the baby & mama-to-be.
super easy. i'll post a tutorial on it soon.
i purchased unfinished birdhouses at michaels and then painted them and modge podged paper on the roof.
isn't she pretty.
we did a diaper raffle to help her stock up on those much needed items.
one of my fav. things was using mason jars to hold everything. love those little things.
i wanted to show the family to be, so i borrowed photos from stacy's mom. we had photos from their dating years all the way to now. it would have been perfect if i had one of those "all because two people fell in love" signs above it.
love a good clothes line filled with cute baby clothes. i added birds to the clothes pins to help it tie into the theme.
prob. my favorite centerpiece. a bird cage, a bird nest (pottery barn on sale for $2!!!!), and a bird candle from michaels! loved it!
we wrapped all the utensils in the napkins & then tied them w/ twine & placed mini bird cut outs in the twine.
saving the best for last. i have a good friend who is basically martha stewart. and funny thing... her name is martha. :) she made these adorable cupcakes and look at the adorable birdie cake topper!! love!
we had such a good time showering her with love and blessing her with gifts. so much fun to celebrate a new life!
hope you had a good weekend, cause we did!
i love all the comment love. thanks for stopping by!
