Back in March, I hosted a shower for my dear friend, Kate. Kate and her husband, Andy, did not know if they were going to have a boy or a girl, so I wasn't 100% sure what direction I wanted to go with the shower. I ended up collecting lots of goodies from around my house (my kids are still very young, so we have LOADS of toys), making a few flea market purchases, and the end result was a lovely, vintage themed baby shower! Check it out!
A happy little vignette
Another fun display
Here is the Momma-to-be and her momma and sister. And check out her four inch heels!
I had some custom pieces made for the baby, and I strung them on a clothesline for a cute little presentation.
I made loads of these little tassles as favors, each one with a different design, and hung them all around the house. This little ducky was one of my faves!
This dress was my mother's baptism dress. It is just the sweetest thing. It has a matching jacket and bonnet that I hung somewhere else but forgot to get a picture of. Oops!
And this little display holds my husband's baby cup and fork and spoon. I LOVE using personal items!
Here is another little display. (Seriously? Yep. My entire first floor was transformed. It took several days to set up, and the hardest part was keeping my kids from playing with the toys. The toys WERE theirs, afterall. But they are used to mommy doing stuff like this, so they were quite cooperative!)
I wish I would have gotten better pics of the table and food, but these will have to do!
This cake was huge! In case you have ever had trouble cutting a cake like this, cut a circle out of the center first, and then slice your pieces.
Kate and Andy have a cute little dog, Finn. He was their first baby. I wanted to include him in their special day. I found a picture of a puppy and baby in a washtub, and the puppy looked very much like Finn. So I took a scrap of the fabric left over from the custom baby items and made a picture for Finn. It truly hangs in Finn's "room" over his doggie bed. Too cute! (And a funny side note on the bronze baby shoes: Those were my MIL's, and there used to be an ash tray where the M&M dish is! Because nothing goes better than baby shoes and cigarettes, right?! Crazy!)
Here are some people enjoying the party. There were 46 adults and eight kids. It was tight but oh so fun!
I made a photo board of Kate and Andy's baby pictures. It was fun to see them as babes.
There was a rocking horse and a bucket o' blocks that greeted guests on the front porch.
Some more party favors.
And one of my most favorite little displays. This is my doll bed that my dad made. My son's plane and large colored pencils from Berlin. Raggedy Ann and Andy from the flea market, and a chair that was repurposed from GoodWill.
Thanks for checking it out! I am linking up with the CSI project. Click on their button in my sidebar and see all of the fun projects that they ALWAYS have over there!
Enjoy the Son today!
