Modern Parties ~ ‘Feather the Nest’ Baby Shower

18 Apr

Sadie from Clementine Cupcakes hosted a baby shower for her sister-in-law this past weekend. She is expecting fraternal twins, a boy and a girl! I love the symbolic theme of birds & nests.

Blessing Tree: All the guests wrote quotes or special notes or advice on the tags and then hung them on the tree. A great keepsake. Juli (mom to be) picked one out and the person who wrote the note received a prize.

Gift Area: Sadie used a birdcage to hold the cards/gift cards.

Party Favor: Homemade tea (my mother in law owns a company called Nana’s Remeteas and blends all her own tea). I put the tea bags in “nests” that I found at the dollar store. (they are actually coconut fiber planting liners that you put your flowers in when you plant to hold moisture and keeps gophers away)

Centerpieces: Simple glass vases from the dollar store with rocks and a tree branch from the tree in my yard, mini wood birdhouses ($1 at michael’s), and green bird condiment bowls with chocolate eggs.

And of course she used the signature “modern hostess pompom” she loaded up a huge birdcage outside with them. Our Modern Hostess, Ari made the bunting and table runners.

Great work Sadie, you make me proud! 😉
