Here’s another one of the baby shower ideas that I worked on for Parents.com, which went live on their site earlier this week. This one is a hip “Little Birdie” soiree inspired by the idea of nesting and getting mom ready for her new little chick (or chicks!). Click here for full details.
P.S. The whimsical, bird-cage-like lanterns pictured above are from Anthropologie. Although they’d make for some seriously fabulous centerpieces, they’re probably a little pricey to use as centerpieces on multiple tables, but would still make for a wonderful focal point somewhere in the shower that would also double as a keepsake gift for mom.
For a more affordable take on this centerpiece idea, try painting wooden craft birdhouses (available at most craft stores) a solid color and papering the roof or sides with contemporary scrapbook paper. Another option is to look for less expensive ready-made options, like these cool Bird@Home houses from Amazon.com ($25 each).
