How to do a BABY BIRD THEME (Part 3)
It’s the third installment of our Baby Bird series, and this time we’re giving you a burst of color in its treatment! :)
I personally love colors and prints, and I think nothing beats the drama that it creates in any space. So when a client comes to me with visions of rainbow hues and patterns, my heart starts beating a little faster! For this particular event which was a Baby Shower, the proud parents wanted to use TEALS and YELLOWS as its main color story. Teal is a tricky color to work with because it sits right between the boundary of the blues and the greens, and you’ll find that not many fabrics, papers, or ribbons are readily available in this color tone out there in the market. Eggs also played a significant role in the couple’s story because, apparently, the mom-to-be offered eggs to Sta. Clara in the hopes of having a baby boy as their first born. Call it faith or coincidence, but their wish actually came true :)
To celebrate the “hatching” of Baby Ethan, here are some photos and visuals from that party.
The invite we designed for them…
Our sweets and giveaway table with our trademark name cutout. The table had cupcakes, candy eggs and cookie lollipops for the guests.
We added the patterned linens as a last minute surprise for the clients. These are actually curtain panels I found in a department store with a graphic print that reminded me so much of Jonathan Adler. It’s was very mod-like and really lent a whole modern and fun look to the set up! Thank God my ever-reliable sewer accepted a rush job to cut out the top portion where the curtain panels originally had its silver rings. A nice table linen can really make or break a table setting, don’t you think? :)
Here are our candy eggs again!
The couple was revealing the baby’s gender that night, and wanted their family and friends to make a guess before going up to the roof deck venue. Their prizes for those who guessed correctly? Cookie lollis in the shape of eggs with a letter “E” for Ethan :)
This time, our cupcake design was teal-colored eggs set on top of brown coconut flakes that looked like nests. Bravo to Angela Colet of Swell Sweets for always being willing to explore new design pegs with me :) She’s so fun and easy to work with.

That’s me taking setup pics, plus Be-an and Lou-Anne goofing around!
