Getting the Nest Ready

     The envelope arrived with a little bird stamp on the back; inside was a graphic illustration of a nest with a tiny egg. The beautifully designed and handcrafted baby shower invitations set the stage for the event honoring this momma-to-be who, unlike so many today, will not find out the sex of her baby until he or she is born later this spring. The hostesses chose accents of green and white and scattered cloches filled with nests throughout the house along with a bright clutch of green and white balloons at the front door to welcome the guests. The table was artfully laden with moss interspersed with flowers and featured a lighted tree branch with...yes, a bird's nest or two. Doors and windows were thrown open to bring the warm spring sunshine inside and antique china, silver goblets, a silver swinging tea kettle, and yummy brunch food helped to make the occasion a memorable one for this lovely momma and her much anticipated little one. It was a happy, happy day!
