Do you have a friend that is adding to their nest? Has the full blown nesting instinct kicked in? If so, throw her a Nesting Birds themed baby shower. The bright, modern colors of this fun design are great for any sex of baby, whether boy or girl, which makes it a great choice for those families who are awaiting a surprise baby.
The Nesting Birds theme features a bright blue background that will instantly make your tables look more fun and whimsical. The birdies tending their nest on them give you an excellent jumping off point for decorating as well. By including some solid colored napkins, tablecloths, etc., you can make it more of a girl shower or boy shower themed event if you want. This design is very flexible in use, which gives it even more value. We even have some people chose this as a great couples baby shower ensemble.
The delicate nest, and the mother and daddy birds are the main themes in this design and you can just go wild with decorating if you so choose. From including nests with bird’s eggs on the tables to hanging blue and pink birds from the ceiling to playing birds chirping in the background, you can go as far as you want in fulfilling the theme. Wooden birdhouses with little birds peeking out of the holes can be a great centerpiece or you can choose to go even more “earthy” and use limbs with tiny nests. You are only limited by your imagination.
As far as eating, no shower would be complete without some food would it? A beautiful cake or cupcakes that go well with the theme should be your beginning point as far as food. You will then want to consider the time of day to determine what else to serve. Is it around lunch time? If so, you will want to include some finger foods that can satisfy your guests, such as finger sandwiches, a veggie tray, meat tray, etc. Food is an essential part of a baby shower, so you will want to be sure that you have a spread that will be appetizing, as well as enough for everyone who attends. Peeps can be used for small birds to add a sweet touch. You can even make a Bird's Nest pasta dish for an inspirational entree.
Don’t forget the favors for your guests. The birds, and the nest motif is available in a wide variety of coordinating favors. From scented soaps in a nest to nest tea light holders to birdie salt and pepper shakers, your goal is to find a favor that you think will let the guests know that you appreciate them and that they will enjoy. Whether it is candies in the Nesting Birds favor box or the About to Hatch egg timer or one of the other choices, you will find that favors can help everyone to remember the shower for a long time to come.
This is the perfect theme to celebrate a mom who had a Two Love Birds Bridal Shower themed event.
