Bird-Inspired Baby Shower {Yellow & Gray}

Amazing Yellow & Gray Bird Inspired Baby Shower

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”.

I love all the signs and cards with the little yellow bird. I’m looking for something like that for my daughter’s shower. Is there a downloadable file or where did you purchase the stationary? I’ve already done invitations.
