Birds often symbolise love and new beginnings so a ‘Sweet Little Birdy’ theme for a baby shower seemed like the ideal match for the occasion.
Using their beautiful wire birdcage as the main inspiration for styling the dessert table, Events by Nat decided to combine the theme with a lime green colour, rather than the traditional pink or blue usually seen at these events.
Natural and earthy tones such as brown, cream and white were also chosen to complement the different shades of green, with an emphasis on the lime green. These colours were incorporated into the beautiful birdy garland which was draped across the front of the table and the eye-catching tissue paper pom poms that hung over the top. A light brown backdrop with the ‘Sweet Little Birdy’ sign in a charming font and pretty design brought the buffet together.
The cake was displayed inside the birdcage and had a bird’s nest with a mama birdy and a sweet baby birdy as the cake toppers while the centre of the dessert table showcased an amazing array of candy, personalised chocolates and a personalised candy jar for each guest. The white bags which were used to fill the candy were hung from a white twig tree with miniature birds sitting on the branches.
The other desserts consisted of cute cake pops which sat in bird’s nests to resemble eggs, as well as wholemeal vanilla cookies, and chocolate and hazelnut macarons. Each guest was also given sugar coated almonds in a bird’s nest that was packaged in a clear box with a charming little thank you tag attached.
Overall, the Sweet Little Birdy themed table was rustic, earthy and sweet, and a wonderful way to welcome a new soul into this world.
