I thought they needed a little nest, so making gold or copper color block air plant pods would be perfect!

Welcome to my mom’s pinwheel-inspired birthday party! You’re probably tired now from all the posts I’ve been making about them.

At that time I had started to plan my mom’s birthday celebration and I thought they would be perfect for the event.

Let’s start with the decor:

I got this lovely wooden table from IKEA for C’s outdoor patio and thought it would a perfect cake + food table for the baby shower. Because the baby shower was going to be outdoors right smack in the middle of spring, a wooden table … Read more
