This past weekend I hosted a baby shower for my dear friends Sara & Mike. The theme was birds/nests. I wanted to make it beautiful and dainty. Think tea party meets baby girl baby shower.
Here are some photos. (sorry about the lighting)
Cigars for the guys…
This is a little wish tree. Guests write wishes for the baby or mom and dad on the cards and hang it from the pink ribbon.
I decorated the railing with a garland of twig type material and attached small artificial birds. The morning of the event I tucked in a whole bunch of tiny pink roses. It really made the entry way feel very festive. The front door had a wreath made of dried grapevine which also had fresh roses and artificial birds, along with faux flowers made from vintage gauze and a nest I made by hand.
This is a photo of the right half of the favor table. In each box are two tasty and very fresh macaroons from Paulette Macaroons in Hayes Valley. There were 4 flavors represented – Rose, Sweet Wedding Almond, Madagascar Vanilla, and Violet Cassis.
