    this shower theme is so darn adorable – I can’t stand it. I now need to find someone who is pregnant so I can throw a shower for them

    The cupcakes are simply adorable. One of most interesting designs I am seen lately. Light blue, turquoise and chocolate always produce a winning combination.

    Those cupcakes are so sweet and PERFECT for nesting. Loved the article!

    Eeeek, cute. This was something I was going to do for a shower I’m doing in March, as my friend is using the birds in her nursery. Too bad I’m knee deep in my other theme b/c this is adorable! Cute as always – thanks for the links!

    Really nice designs. A great shower gift that goes with the baby bird theme is a personalized sign with baby birds that accents the nursery décor. Personalized items are always special, and personalized artwork is something the baby won’t outgrow. Check out the “Peep” design on the “Products” page at http://www.mysweetandsour.com/ The artist is a mom.

    I threw a baby shower for a friend very similar to this – it was themed “The Birds & The Bees” – I have a blog about all the decor and design we put into it – it was so much fun! Here is the link – http://babyshowerbliss.blogspot.com/

    Do you have ESP?? I am planning a baby shower in this same bird theme as we speak! You just gave me the best ideas, love the nest cupcakes!

    Tamara,, please tell me what you used for the bird nest decorations on the cupcakes.

    Thank you.

    What an adorable theme! I am having a shower for a friend this Saturday and I ordered these really cute invites from Ebay-without planning the theme behind it! Thanks to your ideas I am off and running and figured out ways to expand on the idea! Too cute!

  19. Megan May 12, 2009 at 8:30 pm

    I have to know who thinks they found the most adorable invitation to go with this absolutely adorable theme! Where is it? Not looking for something generic…something as special as the cupcakes…SO CUTE!

  20. jenn s. May 13, 2009 at 6:11 am

    Hi Megan –
    I actually really love the invite design that Lisa mentioned above:

    And these designs are also super cute & affordable:

    Please let us know if you find something extra special though!

  21. Lindsey August 12, 2009 at 2:16 pm

    Super cute invites to go with this theme!

  22. Lindsey August 12, 2009 at 2:18 pm

    By the way, I need ideas for party favors to go along with this theme. Mini bird feeders or bird baths? The men were invited to the shower as well so the favors can’t be too feminine.

  23. alicia September 14, 2009 at 5:07 pm

    help!! super cool modern parents expecting a baby boy and need a great theme for the baby shower! any tips or sites?! thank you
