Vintage Baby Shower


It's funny how the new trend for mostly everything now-a-days is inspired by the good ol' days. Mason jars, lace, polka dots and faded color schemes are all the rage, especially for baby showers. Because I am in between both stages - I'm married with no kids yet - I get to enjoy planning showers for others. 

Earlier this year, I helped Mr. P's sister decorate her Vintage Baby Boy Baby Shower. Here's a few of my favorite pictures from her big day. Hopefully you can get inspiration from her vintage baby shower ideas.  


Guests were treated to a variety of sweets at the dessert table, which included macaroons, yogurt covered raisins, chocolate covered Oreos, rock candy and Hershey’s kisses. All of the ladies at the shower were given little brown paper bags with the baby’s initials on it to take some treats home. A banner with the baby’s name (Lucas) ran over the top of the table. We made them ourselves by printing the letters on card stock paper and gluing them on a satin ribbon.


















Michelle made this baby letter herself by tying blue yarn around a wooden letter she bought at Michael’s and decorating it with the baby shoe stickers and some ribbon. She now has it in Lucas’ nursery.







The mason jar centerpieces were adorned with blue hydrangeas, white roses and baby’s breath. A piece of burlap and lace ribbon were glued on it to enhance the vintage charm. The chevron print runners on the tables were handmade by a family member. We think the runner really pulled everything together.










The Italian restaurant we chose for the shower also had a vintage look to it, which helped with our theme. Make sure your venue ties in with your baby shower theme to help with the overall ambiance of the event.






Other decorations on the tables included vintage-looking picture frames with Michelle’s maternity pictures in it (DYI blog post coming soon), candles, cookies, flower balls, etc.




Instead of a sign-in book, Michelle wanted something different and unique, so she made a wishing tree where guests wrote a wish on a notecard and hung it on a branch.
