Bird Themed Baby Shower

A few weekends ago, I hosted (along with a few other friends) a baby shower for my sweet friend, Hailey. She is expecting a little girl in April. Her nursery is decorated in a bird theme, and it is absolutely beautiful.

We decided to stick with the bird theme for the shower. Everything turned out so cute, and I had such a fun time decorating. As always, please excuse my horrible picture taking.

The flowers were pink rose arrangements with a little bird accent.

I also had an arrangement of daffodils. These flowers come with a cute story. I have been working with Budget Blinds of Athens on installing blinds in my house. They are so helpful and so super sweet. I really enjoyed working with them. The last day of installation, they brought me the daffodils.
The drink table was decorated with my hurricane egg arrangement. We served champagne punch with sugar rimmed champagne flutes. We also had water and sodas available.


I didn't get a good picture of the food table, but you can get the idea from the picture below. The centerpiece was a tree with paper birds. As guests arrived, they wrote wishes to Hailey and the baby on the birds and hung the birds on the tree. This picture was taken before the guests arrived. The tree was full of birds by the time the party was over.


Instead of a cake, we decided to have cupcakes and mini-cheesecakes. Publix made the cupcakes, and I decorated them with candy eggs. I also used a nest with candy eggs to decorate the top tier of the cake stand.


We had a huge crowd at the shower, and I think everyone had a good time. I know I had fun visiting with friends and cooing over tiny baby clothes!
