Bird Themed Baby Shower

I have a special treat for you today (actually TWO treats)! First, I’d like to introduce you to a very talented photographer – Eileen Liu of Eileen Liu Photography. I was first introduced to Eileen’s stunning work from a colleague (thanks Leonard!) and soon fell in love with the way in which she captures people and events in an equally stunning way. The second treat? I’m going to share an adorable bird themed baby shower with you. Eileen captured this darling occasion. The shower was for the anticipated arrival of baby Anna. Between the great photos and home-spun decor, you can feel the love jumping off the screen. Enjoy!

From Eileen: “Since birds will be the theme of Anna’s nursery they decided to make that the theme for the baby shower as well! All the decorations (made by my sister Liz and Stephenie, Timmy and Judy’s good friend) were created to have a nest-y feel.”

I am loving these yarn “flowers,” they give the table such a soft feel.

Sweets, and more sweets – YUM!

And adorable homemade favors: cake pops and button cookies!

    This is such a wonderful post…of an adorable baby shower! Love the textures everywhere (burlap, yarn, felt) and the sweet palette without going too sugary! Will line this one up for sharing on our Bellenza FB page. Kudos to all!

    I love the yarn flowers. What a unique idea but they really fit in with the theme don’t they?
