baby goes tweet tweet

Remember the baby shower I was trying to get ideas for a while ago? Well, it was held the other weekend and it had sort of a bird theme. It wasn't overwhelmingly bird themed - mostly it just had a casual, natural feel to it and the invitations had some birds on them and there were some birds nests centerpieces. Everything turned out really cute and was very much Nissa's (the mommy-to-be) style. Unfortunately, I can't take much credit for it - I didn't do much except help with some last minute setup and made the birds nests.

It ended up being the perfect day for a meal outdoors. A long table was set up in the backyard - I love the mismatched chairs. It really adds a lot of character.

...as well as vases. The flowers were beautiful - my favorite were the lime green chrysanthemums:

I was also really happy with how the nests turned out. And they were pretty simple to make too. I wasn't able to find large premade nests at the craft store (they only sold mini ones) so I bought a coil of woody nest like material and was able to form it into nests. I added some moss, birds and eggs and I was done! Don't they look supercute on the cake plates?
