Bird Theme Baby Shower {Unisex}: For My Sister Cherisse

My sisters, cousins, and I threw a baby shower for my Sister, Cherisse, last week.  It was such a blessed day and I couldn’t have asked for more!  They do not know the sex of the baby, but Cherisse is using a turquoise color in her nursery so I decided to go with that.  We chose a bird theme which was quite fun and so easy to do.  Birds are all the rage right now so it was harder to say “no” to cute things than it was to find them!  We made the pom poms ourselves, which are super easy.  There’s a great tutorial on  We used a whole pack of tissue for the larger poms, which makes them much fuller.

We set up a drink station and hung baby pictures of Daniel and Cherisse, along with a couple of their prego pictures.  I found some cute cardboard bird cutouts at Michaels that I painted blue and hung those as well.

The paper straws were probably my favorite item at the shower!  They add such a nice touch.  I ordered them on Amazon and they were absolutely wonderful!  They even lasted the entire shower {these are called Sipsticks, the other brands have bad reviews}. I made personalized tags for each guest by printing the guest list on pink paper.  Then, I cut them all to the same size and used a glue stick to seal them!

I {my hubby} made a message board out of an old frame and chicken wire.  It was so simple {I watched him do it and it didn’t look that hard 😉 } and looked great!  I found cute little cards and matching clothespins at Michael’s.  We had each guest write words of wisdom for Cherisse on the card and display it on the board.  The “Bird House” was a lantern I found on clearance and spray painted white.  This table also held our prizes and favors.

The favors were simple white votive candles.  I made  labels for them that said “Pray For Cherisse” and her due date which is March 18th.  Then, when she goes into labor, each person is supposed to light the candle as a reminder to pray for her while she is in labor.

We served a brunch which consisted of fruit, Greek yogurt parfaits, mini quiches, casseroles and even Krispy Kreme Donuts! Yum!

Last, but not least, were the amazing Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cupcakes by Cupcake Blake.  These were so incredibly scrumptious!  The cake was so moist and the frosting, made of real peanut butter, was to die for!  If you live in the Orange County area, you MUST check her out and get some cupcakes!!!

The shower was quite a success.  I really am sad that it’s all over.  I absolutely love giving parties, especially to my lovely sister, Cherisse!  She deserves the absolute best!  I can’t wait to meet my little niece or nephew in the next couple of weeks.
