The Birds and The Bees Par-tee!

A few months ago, I met with the sweetest customer, Brandi. She was at the beginning stages of planning a baby shower for her friend. The theme was “the birds and the bees” {um, how adorable is that for a baby shower???!!!}.  I was immediately buzzing with excitement!

We worked with the fabulous divas at Wiley Valentine to create a custom, vintage-inspired invitation, incorporating birds and bees. You can read about it on Wiley Valentine’s blog right here.

A few weeks ago, Brandi sent me her brand new {totally heart-melting and stunning} blog, The Sweet Life by B. She blogged about this remarkable shower, and I was completely blown away by her design-savvy genius in brining her birds and bees vision to life.

I asked Brandi to fill me in on every tiny detail of this fabulous fete.  It’s clear that the details are what made this party oh-so-fabulous!

Here’s the scoop from the party-planner herself. Brandi was inspired from blogs such as Style Me Pretty, Hostess with the Mostess, and of course, Martha. The rest of her vendor list follows below. I am totally loving all of the etsy decor.

    This party theme is so great! I have searching and searching for a great tree centerpiece…this is the ticket! What are her centerpiece trees made out of? How did she put those together? I love how the branches have leaves and flowers to add some color! I’m getting married soon and hope to create trees similar to these. Please let me know how to design that! So great!!!!

    Niki…this is a truly magnificent display of creative talent! I absolutely love the idea of the embossed eggs. Those little personal touches make for such a memorable moment. So happy our straws could part of such a special day! Would love to post this on our blog if all right with you.

    Garnish + Enjoy,
