custom inspiration board: a bird in the nest shower

As we all know, inspiration can come from the most unlikely of places. In this case it was the fabric of a chair that inspired Thi's nest themed baby shower. The modern colors of yellow, grey and turquoise are a great way to update the look and give the event a bright touch that compliments some of the more vintage details...

Theme: Nesting Shower

Party Ideas
Colors: yellow, grey & turquoise
Setting: a casual afternoon brunch with tables both indoors & outdoors
Decorations: hang an eclectic mix of colored birdcages and bird houses from the ceiling and porch. fill white and glass vases with cheerful yellow flowers and consider adding succulents for a pop of blue green color contrast. accent the tables with an assortment of nests and ceramic or fabric birds. consider scattering eggs and feathers where appropriate. instead of a guest book, create a wish tree of long branches and cut out bird shaped cards for guests to write messages and hang for the mom to be.
Food: serve a bird inspired brunch of eggs benedict along with roasted herb potatoes and spring greens. offer oj, lemonade and coffee to drink. for dessert, create birds nest cupcakes on tiered cake plates and consider candy jars of assorted chocolate eggs and jelly beans.
Favors: fill mini nests with jellybeans and wrap package in labeled glassine bags
