After many years, a little miracle came into the home of my nephew, Jacob and his wife, Gretta.
They were able to adopt a sweet baby girl. They named her Elianna.
What a precious little bundle of joy!
I helped my sil, Laurie host a shower for the happy new parents.
We decided to go with a ‘NEST’ theme and throw in a bit of French charm.
The table was lined with a cute runner Laurie pulled together using pieces of assorted laces and trims. I will be making one of these!
The shredded nest is one that I made as favors a couple of years ago for a bridal shower. I made the small little treat filled nests by rolling and hot gluing strips of an old sewing pattern. For these small nests I cut the strips narrower.
They were one of the guests two take home goodies. The other was one of these pennants tied to the back of the chairs. I went to Laurie’s house one morning and helped make a few flowers. After that she made all of the rest of them on her own. Lots of time and work!
She is a very talented lady and there were no two alike.
We created bird themed vignettes throughout her home.
A metal tree was placed on the island with little bird nests tucked in here and there. Tags honoring the new babe hung from it.
A vintage blessing dress rests upon French themed books.
A bit of bling was added to a simple banner of torn fabrics tied to a piece of jute.
We adorned amber bottles with lace, muslin, and bits of bling. Placed in an old box amongst green balls they brought about the Frenchy nest theme we were going for.
We served chicken taco salads (build your own) and assorted desserts.
Forgot to snap a pic other than the berries for the pound or angel food cake.
Little Elianna is now 3 months old and what a doll she is!
So happy to have her in the family!
