Bird-Inspired Baby Shower {Yellow & Gray}

Bird Inspired Baby Shower {Yellow & Gray}

Baby on the brain? GOOD… because Julianne of A Modern Proposal Event Planning knows just how to throw an amazing baby shower! Even if you’re nowhere near “nesting” mode right now though, you can still enjoy this wonderfully modern & fresh Bird-Inspired Baby Shower, complete with a fabulous (and gender-neutral!) yellow & gray color palette.

Julianne did an amazing job creating an oh-so chic shower by incorporating one of the mom-to-be’s loves: birds. I’m definitely a passenger on the bird theme bandwagon. From owls to robins, you can’t go wrong with a bird themed party. The use of designer fabric throughout the party does a nice job tying everything together. Say bye-bye to streamers and hello to felt flowers and tissue paper pom-poms! The modern baby shower is here to stay…

PARTY DETAILS from Julianne

This was a gender-neutral baby shower (Yellow and Grey) with a bird theme. The bird theme was chosen because the mom to be loves birds, and actually has a yellow parrot of her own. Most of the décor also had an underlying polka dot theme to match the baby’s nursery.

DIY Projects included: the two bird trees on either side of the sweets table; the picture frames & cross stitch frames; the wreath hanging on the front of the ‘guest book’ table; the candy favors; the sweet little birds in the floral arrangements; the table runners; the baby book; and the felt flowers.

Activities included: “guess the number of q-tips in the jar”; advice for the mom to be (on super-cute note cards for the mom-to-be’s scrapbook!); and “finish the nursery rhymes”.

The idea of color as a theme in a party is superb. The green gives such a nice relief with the yellow and gray! The art on the cards are so nice, and love seeing birds as they are very uplifting.

I absolutely love this theme, the little birdies are too adorable. The fabric stuffed birds could be used in the baby’s nursery once he or she is born :)

I love the phrase, “I’m definitely a passenger on the bird themed bandwagon”. I totally am too! I had to have just the right swallows for my wedding invites, and I still love them. This is so cute!

I used this theme, but using green instead of yellow, for a baby shower yesterday. The guests had all met the new mom via Twitter, so the bird theme was particularly fitting.
The shower was beautiful and the guests had a great time! I received many compliments. Thanks!
