Wisely Planned Baby Shower: How Tweet it is....

It seems that there is a running trend going on in baby showers! Birds, nests, feathers, chirps and all things bird-related have been brought to the forefront of baby shower themes......and why wouldn't it?!  It's just adorable and can easily be made SO chic.

A couple weeks ago, one of my really close friends, Yuri, threw a baby shower for her sister, Paola.  Unfortunately, I was unable to attend, as I, too, was hosting a shower that day, which you might have seen here not too long ago.  When I got the invitation, I knew it was going to be nothing less than fabulous {nothing Yuri ever does is less than FABULOUS!} So, when I finally saw the pictures last week, I was not surprised at how great it all looked.  Everything was detailed, and everything went together with such cohesiveness.  The color scheme was perfect. Sage green, light brown with burlap textures throughout.

All the floral arrangements were made by Yuri herself.  She took a little trip to the L.A. Flower Mart and got right to work! {they look SO professional!}

The linens {table cloths and napkins} were rented from Yuri's friend's company, Creative Touch Linens.  They even custom made the ruffle tablecloth used on the gift table.  So impressive!  The burlap she was able to find in downtown L.A. at $1 p/yard!  AMAZING!!!  I'll be using a lot of that for Caden's Cowboy party!

She bought all the little ceramic birds, birdhouses and mini pots at The Dollar Tree.....yes, The Dollar Tree!!!!  Paola then brush painted the birdhouses and mini pots white, to go with the rustic color scheme. 

The bird cages and green porcelain birds were purchased at Michael's. The big bird nests were found at a flea market.  The tulle curtains were bought from Ikea and used as color for the side walls of the tent.  LOVE this idea!!!!  The cake stand, candy jars and chalkboard sign were purchased at Save-On Crafts.  The gold stands used for the baby's breath arrangements (my favorite) were purchased at Tuesday Morning

Yuri started planning this shower the second Paola knew what theme she wanted.  She spearheaded the production of the theme, but it was a family effort, as all the women in the family came together to carry out the final look. Yuri, you and your family should be so glad.  The shower turned out BEAUTIFULLY.....and Paola, you look stunning!  Congratulations!

{I apologize now for having so many pictures, but I couldn't leave any out.  It was all too pretty!}

  11. A baby shower is the best way to celebrate the birthday of a new born baby which is considered to be the happiest moment in the life of not only the family members but to friends and relatives also.
