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

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!

Bradley SAYS:

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/

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!
