I love the way bird themes and imagery can be used to naturally illustrate new beginnings. The birth of spring – or a new baby. Robin egg blues with pale pinks, soft and fluffy feathers… these combine to create whimsy that is extra perfect for gender reveals.
Here, birdcages, nests and wooden eggs make cute centerpieces for tables, as well as food and beverage displays. The fun secret: these wooden eggs open – perfect for your big announcement. I painted the inside and out in contrasting colors of pink and blue and slipped a gender revealing feather in each. Nestle eggs inside additional nests and sprinkle at the base of the centerpiece (and throughout the party).
Hand-painted little birdhouses hang from branches above. You can purchase these little houses for just a dollar at your local craft store. A few strokes of paint and they come to life. Maybe it’s just me, but I can’t help imagine tiny bird families fluttering in and out of these fairytale homes.
When it’s time to announce your baby’s gender, open the eggs to reveal the feather inside. This is such a sweet way to announce the news.
