mother’s day brunch placesetting

Mothers Day Brunch

I’m absolutely giddy for Spring. I’m an early riser so I tend to see the sun come up each morning and this time of year that means I also get to hear the birds chirp the day in. It’s my favorite time of day to just think and be creative.

And those little chirps led me to this Mother’s Day brunch, sweet baby shower, or even Spring party placesetting idea.

I picked up these lovely new Easter dishes from Target. I love how girly they are. I’m the only girl in a house of four so sometimes it needs to be a bit about me. {grin}

The malted milk ball candy eggs make this party placesetting perfect for a baby shower…

Mothers Day Brunch

but I chose to craft little baby birds for a Mothers Day brunch. I just thought how sweet to be able to put the number of babies in the nest that each guest has!

As you can see, I have two little birdies in my nest! {proud momma smile}

How to make a paper blue bird

So here’s how you make these sweet paper bluebirds. You’ll need:

  • Blue cardstock
  • Yellow cardstock
  • Paper trimmer
  • Scissors, small and sharp is best
  • Hot glue
  • Stick glue
  • Optional: Sharpie if you’d like to add eyes

How to make a paper blue bird

And here are the easy steps:

  1. For the mother blue bird, trim strips of scrapbook paper in 2″ (body) and 1 3/4″ (head) strips
  2. Curl the paper slightly by running it through your fingers. If you don’t the paper will crease.
  3. Determine your body circle size (based on your nest and plate) and hot glue the ends together trimming off any excess. Repeat for the head, making it slightly smaller.
  4. Trim an oval out of the yellow scrapbook paper, then trim down the sides to a beak shape.
  5. Attach the beak with glue, not hot glue or it might show.
  6. Perch the bird on the nest with a small dot of hot glue and hold 5 seconds until it sets.

Note: Baby birds strips should be 1″ and 3/4″.

yellow baby shower inspiration

I’m a lover of yellow in combinations of white, gray and/or black as you can likely tell from my buzz baby shower invitation and printable party decor collection. {Sidebar: Growing up my mom’s kitchen was tastefully decorated in yellow (my dad always said it was like the morning sun) and now my kitchen is yellow (from mid-February to October).}

It’s crisp, bright and since there are so many natural yellow elements (lemons, simple flowers), it can be very economical if you get a little creative. These ideas are lovely: table setting and placecard from Three Apple Events via Style Me Pretty; Centerpiece beverage bucket and lemon vase from Martha Stewart

Yellow is also a very easy color to incorporate into desserts, like these lovely lemon burst cookies from Tidy Mom, mini lemon souffles in “real” lemon peels from Martha Stewart, and candies and dessert pops featured on Style Me Pretty, photographed by Verve Photography. (Follow me on Pinterest and visit my ”yellow” for even more ideas!)

And if you don’t have a shower in your future, these ideas would also be lovely for a Mother’s Day brunch or tea this year! As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake and create!
