We were so thrilled to find out my sister was having a little girl. She is an amazing mother and like many of us went through many struggles to be blessed with her first two children. She lives across the country, but is professional genealogist and was going to be in town for an event so we could not pass up the chance to throw her a baby shower! We decided on "A Special Addition to Our Family Tree" for the theme because it fit her so perfectly.
"Family: like branches on a tree, we all grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one."
With the tree theme there was a natural extension to nests, birds and eggs.
Left: canvas (using cardstock, vinyl, and silhouette) for the nursery, leaving room for her name.
Right: Door prize. Guess how many eggs (Cadbury eggs minus the blue and yellow) in the jar.
Left: Gift area
Right: Nesting banner
Wish Tree: each guest wrote a special wish for the baby and hung it on a branch.
Middle: chocolates made with leaf molds, homemade raspberry lemonade & water adorned with pink binkies Bottom: birdcage and bird made from scrapbook paper
And the best part of all is the little princess has arrived and loves all the gifts from her shower. Especially the ones from me. ;) See...
I have a whole inspiration board on Pinterest for this theme if you want even more ideas.
(I altered from these, but always like to give credit)

Paper Birds (saw this idea on Studio 5 forever ago. I think it came from Kristine?)
