welcome to the nest

as i said i recently put together the decor for a small baby shower for my friend as she awaits the arrival of her baby boy! i decided on a nesting theme and it turned out great...nothing over the top, just some sweet touches.
it started with an invitation that i found on etsy, there were a few choices but i opted for this one from little chicken design. it was easily printed at home and i added a few white feathers in the envelope for an unexpected touch!
the tables each had a few mason jars filled with white freesia that smelled amazing! simple birch slices and mini bird nests & eggs completed the look.

each table was named for a different type of bird

my friend can't wait to use this on her front door when the baby arrives!

the theme continued with the favors...and here's where the duckie comes in...bird seed in the shape of duckies hung from a manzanita branch..it was an lovely decor element and the guests could easily pick one off of the branch to take home.
i was so excited when i found them on etsy.
2 birds in love has beautiful options and it would be a great favor for weddings as well.

and of course no party is complete without some delicious cupcakes!
i sent the sugar chic my inspiration board for the shower and she came up with THE most perfectly decorated cupcakes....everyone was thrilled!!! and some thought they were too pretty to eat...fortunately i didn't have that problem :)

it was a great day and the Mommy-to-be was so happy and by the end of the day was definitely ready to nest...err, or rest...i'm not sure which!

i know, i know

it's been way too long since my last post but the good news is that over the next few days i will be able to share with you some of the events that i've been working on over the past month or so (okay, from the last few months)
there is so much planning that goes into each event, list after list (after list) is created and then checked off...for the production of the event to go off without a hitch i need to make sure all my duckies are in a row and to be honest there is often a wayward duckie (or two!) at the last minute that i need to get back in line! by the time the event is over and i've rested my aching feet i fall short in getting the pictures together and posted!
so here we go....and since we were talking about duckies (we were, right?) let's start with a small baby shower that i worked on for one of my dearest friends who is expecting her bundle of joy in a little more than a month...i can't wait!
