Here are some of the highlights of actress-turned-blogger Paula Peralejo's cool baby shower!

Actress turned blogger Paula Peralejo-Fernandez will soon be giving birth to her first child.

To celebrate, her sister Rica Peralejo threw her a fun and intimate baby shower.

"Since my husband and I are birders/birdwatchers, my sister thought of the perfect hashtag: #PabloHatchingSoon!" wrote the mom-to-be in her popular blog, where she documents her travels and other adventures.

On her instagram, Rica shared a photo of the two of them in similar outfits, gushing about how excited she was to welcome her nephew.

"Twinning forever," wrote Rica. "I came first. Then she arrives and I think, 'We always do this'. And I think, we always do this. We wore the same thing in different colors. My sister @mama_the_explorer is going to pop soon, but I hope not too soon so I can be here in time for Pablo's hatching."

Rica, who is also a popular name in the blogosphere, revealed that once Pablo is "hatched" they'll begin a new hashtag #theadventuresofPhilipandPablo, featuring Pablo and his cousin, Rica's son Philip.

The low-key but fun event was held at Mateo's Restaurant and Cafe in Horseshoe Village, Quezon City last September 16.

Flora and Fern styled the intimate event, even using real eggs as fun edible decorations.

Since my husband and I are birders, my sister decided to go with a birdwatching theme for our baby shower with the hashtag: #PabloHatchingSoon ❤️ This beautiful styling is done by @floraandfernph, photo by @jamieandbaby! You can see more of the photos and styling here: http://www.mamatheexplorer.com/index.php/2016/09/15/pablohatchingsoon-baby-shower-number-2/ ❤️ If you want your event decorated in anything floral/tropical/rustic/leafy, promise, FLORA & FERN PH is the company for you. I see their hardwork almost everyday - the planning + mockup + packing + actual event styling, and wow, their hardwork & dedication is something else. ???? I actually often ask them if they even get tired (I do - just watching them!), but I guess when it's passion, they forget the physical pains that come with the job! ???? #pablohatchingsoon #floraandfernph #eventstylingph

"In our wedding, we made sure the materials in our guest tables were all recyclable and could mostly be taken home by our guests," wrote Paula on her Instagram. "Love that they followed this principle by putting something that goes with the theme but are also edible! Many of the eggs were cooked so my nephew and some guests actually ate them!'

The delectable cake was created by Miss Buttercream.

The styling of the event was consistent with the bird watching-theme, down to the last detail.

"The guests at the shower loved everything about @mateosph. The whole feel of the place -- quiet, intimate, real. Then of course, their food reminds you of lutong bahay however gourmet levels," wrote Rica.

"I love small, intimate parties where we can just talk to everyone and basically have time for everyone. That’s how it was this afternoon, with the bonus of a beautifully-styled venue and great food!" wrote the expectant mom.
