My coworker friend was looking at some beautiful bedding at Land of Nod in a tree theme. It's mostly in light blues and greens. Since they are adopting, they are not certain what sex the baby will be at this time. We thought a bird/nest theme might go nicely with what she has picked out. Not that those things have to match, we just thought it would be nice. Colors for the shower are pastel pink, blue, green and yellow.
These food tags are super easy to make and easy to customize for your color scheme. They are perfect for Easter, which is coming up, or a baby shower any time!
To make these, you will need:
- paper mache eggs (34 cents each at Hobby Lobby)
- unfinished wood napkin ring holders (set of eight for $2.99 at Hobby Lobby)
- paint (in the colors of your choice)
- marker (I used a sharpie I had around the house)
|Paper mache eggs - I needed eight for our menu.|

|Paint the eggs and holders. The yellow here is horrible. I had to tone it down quite a bit to get a pastel. Each egg got two coats of paint...except the yellow. It got about four. The holders only required one coat.|
|And just for fun, here is another decoration I finished a little bit ago for the shower.|
Hope you enjoyed. Stay tuned for more baby shower decor coming soon!
