A Bird-Themed Baby Shower

Our friend, Kelly King, recently threw a bird-themed baby shower for some good friends of hers. I created the invitations, menu tags, candy buffet tags, cupcake wrappers and picks, and a welcome sign for the shower and Dee made the cupcakes. She made two dozen hummingbird cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting and decorated with toasted coconut and chocolate covered espresso beans; and two dozen french vanilla cupcakes with buttercream icing. They were yummy! And if you want an excellent hummingbird cake recipe check out Chef Art Smith's recipe here.

Kelly is a chef and caterer -- and throws one heck of a party! She is all about the details. Check out the photos here.  (Sorry . . . Blogger was giving me a fit about uploading so many pictures -- so please go to my photobucket and check out the rest of the photos!)

All of the papers used in the many projects for this shower were either Bazzill card stocks or papers from  Die Cuts With A View's Mediterranean pack.  Here is the run down of Cricut cartridges I used:

Invitation ~ bird cut from Pink Journey
Cupcake Wrappers ~ Cricut Lite Cupcake Wrappers
Cupcake Bird picks ~ Create-A-Critter
Buffet Tags & Beverage Tags ~ Okieladybug's scalloped rectangle cutting file (George)
Favor Boxes ~ Tags, Bags, Boxes & More
Welcome sign ~ Cindy Loo

A beautiful baby shower for a beautiful baby girl!  I hope you enjoyed all of the wonderful eye candy and perhaps gathered some inspiration for your own "tweet" event!
