All about nesting...

My friend Becca is adding to her nest!  She is already Mom to a close-to-perfect 8 year old and a cuter-than-cute 6 1/2 year old, and God has decided to bless her with another baby boy -- we just had to celebrate!

Our church recently built a new facility to accommodate our growth.  The foyer of our church, called The Crossing, has the most beautiful, natural setting, which was the perfect venue for a Nest-themed baby shower.  Here are some pictures...

Birdhouses covered with scrapbook paper

Each table had a centerpiece of branches secured in rock salt

With birdcages and nests to match the theme

By the end of the shower, all of the centerpieces were covered with notes for Becca and the baby

The food was catered by a Dallas staple, Celebrity Cafe & Bakery

They even made these precious petit fours, which tasted as great as they look!

I can't throw a party without a craft -- we made canvas picture frames for the nursery

There was actually great participation

And now Becca has a cute way to display and switch out photos

Everyone took home a cute clipboard as a favor

What a great group of friends!

And of course, where there is water...  I'm just glad our girls waited until the shower was over!

The best thing in the world is to celebrate with a friend

No matter what age you happen to be
