Baby Bird Shower

Martha Stewart Baby, Volume 12 2000

Many expectant mothers begin the "nesting" process -- cleaning house, preparing baby clothes, assembling furniture -- as their delivery date approaches. Entertain them with a baby bird-themed dessert shower. All you need for decor are vases of Delphinium aptly nicknamed "Blue Birds."

    I made a little headpiece for the mother to be from a plastic headband with tiny birds attached on spiral 'antennae' made from floral wire that bobbed when she moved. I added a feather boa and she became the nesting 'momma bird'. The hummbird cake topper was a bird's nest filled w/ moss and an egg w/ the baby's name on it. Game prizes were binoculars, a birdwatching book, bird feeder, and bird seed. The favors were little wooden birdhouses and fresh flowers in tiny glass vases. What a hit!

    The bird's nest cookies are edible and look very similar to the bird's nest place card holder, which the cookies could also be used for. I am making them and putting them in clear bags tied with ribbon as a favor for the guests.

    I am putting together a baby shower for my sister-in-law with the nesting theme, instead of a favor that may just end up in the garbage, I made birds nest cookies. Melt one 12 oz. bag of chocolate chips, pour in 5 oz. chow mein noodles, mix, form nest with a pile of the chocolate covered noodles then add some colored egg candies or jordan almonds on top (this makes about 8 large nests).
