A Baby Shower- Nesting Mama Theme

Children are a gift from the LORD; 
they are a reward from Him. 

Psalm 127:3.

A dear friend of mine waited for 10 years to get pregnant, 
and when God decided it was her time to be a mother, 
some friends and I decided it was time for a PARTY, 
a Couple's Shower!!! 

And, celebrate we did:

The invitation cover, a vintage postcard from eBay:

Baby's face in a sonogram photo was cut into an egg shape 
& put on the plate in a dry-eraser drawn "nest":

The nest recipe is here at Joy of Baking. 
We used malted milk eggs.

The wine glasses have paper cozies that also serve as coasters.

The proud dad and mom in the center, hostesses around the edges:

Wish I had a better picture 
of the sign on the chair. 
Twigs were glued on a burlap-covered board to read: 
Nesting Mama.

Dad enjoyed opening presents the most, I think.

Prayer Box:

Moses basket bedding sewed by me 
and a friend (Hi, Dawn!). 
A curtain valance was threaded around the base.

Her father-in-law (L) made them a bassinette!

Dad appreciating the gift from his dad:

A wonderful moment, tears of joy for all the blessings of the day.

The Mama's mama. 
I made nest corsages 
that made a great displayable souvenir of the day.

Hurry, little one, we are anxious to meet you!

Finally here! 
Welcome Home, Jeffrey Daniel. 
You will be very loved.
