Oh Baby! Eggs and Nest Baby Shower

A few weeks ago Catherine and I (alongside some of our other best gals) threw a baby shower for our dear friend Emily.  Emily is a Southern doll with an eye for crafty details and a sentimental heart too.  As such, and this being her first baby, we wanted to throw in some special details to make the day memorable.  I had some eggs and birds' nests I had been dying to use for a party's decor, so we went with an egg and nest theme (perfect for an expectant mama, no)?  And praise be to God, as I write this Emily is enjoying week 3 with her new little girl.  Special times!

Check out pics from out fete below....

These gorgeous flowers are from Adam's Apples... you might remember me talking about them in this post.  This is a wonderful shop in Avondale Estates, GA that provides flowers, candies, specialty candied apples and other chocolate-covered treats, and balloons galore.  I just love them!

My aunt Bobbie (you may remember her from several posts of ours, including this one) created this petit fours with little nests on top.  We already had lots of other sweet goodies, so I bagged these up in little cellophone treat bags from Hobby Lobby and stapled some pretty paper across the top.  Oh, and I put a little piece of cardstock in the bottom of each to stabilize as well.  These were our favors to thank Emily's sweet guests for coming!

Is that little baby carriage not precious?  I got it on sale about 6 years ago for $5.  Can't beat that!  You may think it looks familiar, and it does.  We used it for a baby shower for dear friend Lauren about 3 years ago, and I wrote about that shower here.

Those are edible hibiscus flowers floating in our punch!  Aren't they pretty?
We served brunch and (I do say so myself) it was tasty!  This is the grit station....

....and this is the yogurt station.

We had a great time celebrating Miss Emily!  Now I've gotta scoot... my little one is ONE YEAR OLD today!!
