"Feather Her Nest" baby shower

This past weekend, I helped throw a baby shower for my cousin Jessica.  This "Feather Her Nest" shower began with the invitation.  When I designed Jessica's wedding invitation, she requested it have two little birds on it dressed as a bride and groom. We carried the birds over into the the baby shower theme with a nest containing a single egg.  I made a sketch of the nest and my spectacularly talented friend Carolyn designed the invitation from there. 

We had the shower at Amelie's French Bakery in NoDA- you may remember it from this previous post.  I love Amelie's for many reasons, but especially for the feeling you get when you walk through the doors.  It feels warm and inviting, but has the feeling of a French consignment store.  I LOVE it. 

We ordered some special treats from Amelie's - how can you go there without eating some of their amazing pastries?  And we brought in some special treats like raspberries filled with bittersweet chocolate and white chocolate morsels, sun-dried tomato cheesecake served with crostini, sweet cream cheese filled strawberries, spanakopita, faux champagne punch and mimosa punch. 

After everyone had a chance to fill a plate, Jessica started to unwrap her gifts.  Every guest was asked to bring in a customized onesie that represented their relationship with the mother-to be. She had to guess who had brought which onesie. The onesie game added a lot of laughter to the gift opening. 

 I loved the diaper bag she received.  You can see it here.

It was an amazing day full of laughter and excitement about the new addition to our family.  Congratulations Jess and John! We can not wait to meet your beautiful little boy!
