My sister-n-law Christy and I are coordinating a bridal shower for a couple at church. We thought the theme “Feather Their Nest” might be fun. Now the trick is to feature the nest and not a potential egg, so that they don’t think we are pushing for children! I love a challenge.
My hands down, favorite Party Inspiration blog is Party Perfect. That’s where the inspiration for these invitations came from. Chelsea Lawrence’s Red and Aqua Baby Shower was featured on the blog last week. Her adorable, baby shower invitations were the inspiration for our bridal shower invites. When you have the option to pass out invitations it opens you up to so many possibilities. We took Chelsea’s basic idea of using yummy treats to accompany an invite. Thank you, Chelsea!
I purchased these boxes for Marin’s birthday party favors, knowing I’d find a use for the leftovers. The bird nest candies are an Easter family tradition. Typically I’d use mini Robin Egg candies, but they are seasonal and so we used chocolate covered espresso beans instead.
The invites were a big hit. I have a feeling most everyone who received one won’t have trouble remembering the date.
Oh, and speaking of Party Perfect. Marin’s birthday party was highlighted on the blog. (Thrill of all thrills!...Blushing.) Check out Party Perfect! You’ll be hooked.
