Real Baby Shower: Ready to Hatch

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

After posting the Spring collection from Pottery Barn, I couldn't help myself and just had to featured this "Ready to Hatch" shower from Brooke Hall of Oh Brooke. Let's start at the beginning... shall we. The invitations. WOW! Inspired from the one-and-only Jordan Ferney from Oh Happy Day, Brooke used white jordan almonds instead of lemonheads for her blue and white bird themed shower. Super creative! I also love the make-your-own crêpe bar. Another fabulous idea for a Saturday morning soirée.

From Brooke... We used the community room at my condo which provided contemporary furniture, seating for everyone, and a great roomy space. Instead of buying decorations, I grabbed all of the mis-matched pillows from my entire condo and put them on the furniture in the room. It made the room feel grown-up and cozy! by elida created the adorable cupcakes and yummy tarts. Those goodies on cake stands served as the perfect centerpiece. A metal birdhouse kept little notes that the guests wrote to the parents-to-be, and instead of games, we had a raffle for little bird-related gifts.

A full crepe bar for the ten o’clock shower was perfect to get everyone chatting and relaxed. I marked each ingredient with tags and menu holders… more for cuteness factor than for necessity.
