SPD: A Bird Baby Shower!

Hellloo my dearests. I know everyone has valentine’s day on the brain, but not I! maybe that’s a product of getting married, but honestly a low-key dinner tonight is all that we wanted. I’ve never even been that into Valentine’s day, but really I’ll spare you the details of how trivial I think Valentine’s day is. I don’t know where were are going as of yet, which a surprise of any sort gets me excited.

Anyways, I want to talk about something else that just warms my heart. Baby showers! My friend Jennifer and her mom Debbie asked Emily and I to help host her shower, and I was pretty stoked. Not even gonna lie! Let me start with we all used to be crazy college roomies, I mean we got matching tattoos together, romped around 6th street…. now fast forward a decade later….and we are standing in each other’s weddings and throwing baby showers. The bonds you make with girl friends, the history you create as you are there for each other through such important milestones is just wild. I always have a blast looking back. Because I am just cheesy like that!But anywho..
Jennifer’s nursery theme was all about birds and branches, thus we went with a “Tweet Baby Girl” theme. We freaking ran with it! Here was our pinterest inspiration:

I think dressing a table really makes everything come together. Gives it that extra pop, and it was just fabric from Hobby Lobbyf or 2.99 a yard, spray painted clothespins,  some ribbon for 2 bucks at walmart. We bought the bird houses from Hobby lobby for 6 bucks a piece, and spray painted those as well.
cupcakes fo yo face!

Every shower needs a sing! Emily and Stan made this one below,the letters were $1.27 each, and they used a staple gun to attach the letters to the rope. We bought that fake branch from Hobby Lobby and we thought it made all the difference.

Also – the Mom-to-be’s only request was a macaroni bar, since it was her biggest craving during pregnancy. So a macaroni bar she got! I dont know about you guys, but It always boggles my mind that no one serves real food at baby showers. I mean come on! Feed your guests!


But really the best part was watching her open all her gifts. Molly's closet is more full than mine! Freaking awesomeness.

I really can’t wait to meet her little girl, and see her little boy get a baby sister.
Congrats to Jenn Jack and Connor!
