Vintage Fall Birdcage Baby Shower Brunch

This baby shower brunch, held in late October, exemplified the beauty of Fall with a vintage birdcage theme, created with love by Aly Bowen. Aly wanted guests to experience the beauty of the mountain views and trees, but with all the comfort of an indoor living room. So she brought the indoors out, moving her own furniture out to the backyard for the shower, including her own white sectional! The theme was reflected in the decor, including birdcages hanging in the trees and a wooden guestbook featuring a drawing of a birdcage. Rustic details with lots of charm helped bring it all together, from jars wrapped in burlap and lace with beautiful vibrant fall florals to empty frames hanging above.

Aly made sure guests had a wide array of menu choices, including sandwiches, salad cups, fruit kabobs, donuts, maple bacon skewers, strawberry scones, blueberry cheesecake coffeecake, and a yogurt parfait bar! They also had their fill of a lovely dessert spread that included cake pops, rice crispy treats on sticks, and chocolate dipped pretzels and strawberries. The beverage station offered delicious raspberry lemonade and sweet tea, which was served in mason jars with striped straws. There is much more to see, so be sure to visit the full gallery to see more!
