A Wishing Tree

This past weekend, I was honored to be asked by one of my dearest friends to create a Wishing Tree for a baby shower.  I'm not really the 'crafty' type, for normally, I have really large ideas, but they never can flow smoothly from the blueprint in my brain to reality.  Luckily, the blogging world is filled with inspiration, and these two fabulously creative ladies {here and here}started the ball rolling on what ultimately turned out to be a very successful DIY project!   


  1. What a sweet idea. I'm inspired for my next baby shower.

  2. Hi Mel,
    So many good ideas come from the States.....and this is one of them. We don't really do anything like this in the UK. Such a lovely thing to do..... and, I think that you are VERY good at this sort of thing. You have a very artistic 'eye;. XXXX

  3. This is so beautiful Mel, I love it....well done you :) xx

  4. Hello Mel......I wanted to tell you that I will be sending you a vintage postcard...can you email your address to

  5. So sweet & such a great idea! xo

  6. Soooo pretty...I have seen this at weddings but at a baby shower..soooooo adorable.

    Hugs for a great day! xoxoox

  7. It turned out wonderfully! Bravo girlfriend!

  8. Mel,
    What a simple beautiful idea!
    btw...your blueprint plans are already a reality...wonderful things are sometimes a long process.

  9. Awwww! How lovely! I wish I had thought to do something so sweet for my cousin's shower a few months ago.

  10. That is so beautiful yet so simple - I love it! xxoo :)

  11. my friend,
    it's beautiful, just beautiful.

  12. Mel,

    Your wishing tree is elegant and beautiful and I would never expect anything less from you!
    I am sure your friend was thrilled!


  13. That is beautiful and I think it was successful indeed, well done!

    Liesl :)

  14. Wow, Mel! Your wishing tree is absolutely beautiful. You are so crafty and artistic. I love the moss at the bottom and that little nest. Such a lovely touch. I'm sure your girlfriend was thrilled.

    P.S. Miss you like crazy. We need to find some time to catch up soon.

  15. Hi Mel,
    This is just beautiful. So simple, elegant, and pure. It's so perfect for a shower.
