Blue Ruffle Birdie Baby Shower

So I am going to come right out and say I love bird themes. Oh and ruffles, love them too.

So when Terri Vandermeer asked me to make up some baked treats for a baby shower she was creating with a ruffle and bird theme I couldn't wait to see the results.

Here are some of the images. The mother to be was expecting twin boys so the color theme was a muted baby blue and brown.

Terri whipped up a ruffled tablecloth and fabric backdrop for the table, and when I say whipped I really mean sewed for hours on end. You may have previously seen some of Terri's crafty work on this pretty polka dot party here.

To work in with the ruffly theme Terri made up some co-ordinating paper pom poms, and then she made up the labels herself as well.

I made a chocolate chip cake with whipped chocolate ganache and a few fondant decorations and guessed it Terri whipped up the bunting decoration for the top.

Also on the menu were coffee ganache macarons with a baby blue shell that was speckled with a coffee/water mixture to resemble bird eggs.

and baby bird cookies with a crafty feel to them inspired by Terri's decorations.

Simple iced cupcakes were packed in take home favor boxes with co-ordinating thank you tags.

Fudge looks even more delicious in a beautiful cloche covered display.

What a super sweet party.

All decorations including the backdrop, tablecloth, pom poms and tags made by Terri Vandermeer. Terri also made the take home cupcakes.
