Spring Ideas

 I wanted to share some old posts from a baby shower I gave last year.  "His eye is on the sparrow" was the theme and there are a lot of ideas that can be used during this time of the year.
   One of my favorite things was the boiled eggs in a nest from the shower.  I just filled a trifle bowl with boiled eggs and it fit perfectly in a grapevine wreath to look like a nest of eggs.  The children loved this!  Here is more information on the "bird food" and this nest  from the shower:  http://missyscakesandaprons.blogspot.com/2011/04/his-eye-is-on-sparrow-food.html
 I also made these cute little nests from clearanced Christmas ornaments.  The eggs were gold, but I painted them with glue and covered with blue glitter.  For more ideas about the birdy (Google says that is not a real word, but I'm going to use it anyways) decorations and theme go here:  http://missyscakesandaprons.blogspot.com/2011/03/his-eye-is-on-sparrow-baby-shower.html

The cake was one of my favorite cakes and cupcakes.  I used a smaller grapevine wreath to set the cake on.      This was not what I had in mind when making this cake, but my IMBC was too wet, so I airbrushed it which made it look like a tree.  If you want a tutorial on how to make this cake with the nest, birds and babies go here:  http://missyscakesandaprons.blogspot.com/2011/03/his-eye-is-on-sparrow-cake.html

I hope you don't mind my cheater post today, but I really thought ya'll might be able to use some of these ideas for upcoming festivities.

Happy Spring!
