Somebody is Nesting

Don't let the title of this post fool you, I am not having a baby. Sorry Mom-in-law. Anyway, a friend sent me some cute pics of these cupcakes she created for a "nesting" baby shower she hoted and it got my little blogging head thinking about all the other birdy things you could do for a shower.

Cupcakes seem to be one of the most popular and easy ways to pull in the bird theme. For an inexpensive and natural option, try using natural tree branches as a centerpiece. You can leave them natural or spray paint white for a modern effect. Decorate with egg ornaments (available around Easter) or with fake birds and feathers from Hobby Lobby. You would be surprised how many things you can find to go with this theme once you start looking!
