But when it comes to the decorations the ingredients can be quite varied.
This particular shower theme started with a couple little birdies tweeting on a computer. It was drawn by a very talented gal I'm lucky to have as a friend.
We added a little verse about being all in a twitter trying to make room in the nest for Baby Rodriguez. We asked the guests to help feather the nest by joining us ....and followed with the pertinant info.
Then came the gathering of ingredients:
Not pictured are an old music book, Jordan almonds in blue and a few little things we will toss in later.
So first we take the bed springs and make a little nest with the moss.
