Sneak Peek...Vintage Baby Shower

So I thought I'd give you a sneak peak into the baby shower I'm decorating for tonight...this is going to be so fun. It's for a gal named Hannah who's somewhat of a newcomer to our church, and my generous friend Sarah just recently offered to host a baby shower for her. But time is of the essence, because baby Abigail is already here...and pushing 3 1/2 months old! So we gotta get this girl some presents! (This goes to show that a LOT can be accomplished in a week, which is all the time I've had to plan for this...but since I usually procrastinate anyway, I suppose this isn't all that unusual after all!)

Anyway. Here's the custom invite I created. I taped it to this metal picture frame for display at the party...and it helped me photograph it a little better, too...

And some lovely tidbits which are soon to be a banner (oh, I do love a good vintagey banner) and tags for favors...

And, of course, paper plates and cups. And what's that I see in the little Martha Stewart package? Cupcake wrappers? Does anybody here like cupcakes?

They're alright, I guess.

Okay, okay, you got me - I love 'em! But who doesn't?

Stay tuned for more pics later this week after the shower. It's going to be sweet!


  1. Love that invitation! And I can't wait to see the banner. You plan one mean shower! Love it!

  2. Those colors are so pretty. So is the invitation! Clever idea to tape it to that picture frame. Baby showers are so much fun!

    I don't suppose you'd throw one for me? My baby is only 6. -Julia ;-)

  3. I love the colors, pink and green. It is going to be so cute.

  4. Love your colors--I'm excited to see more of the cuteness...have fun!

  5. I love it already, and that's BEFORE everything's finished. Hey (drum roll)......I would love for you to do (drum roll)......MY BABY SHOWER!!! I just found out I'm pregnant. I'm only a month along so your prayers are still coveted, but we're soooo excited!

  6. Oh my gosh -- your party pics are always my favorites! Can't wait...I'm sure I'll file them away stat. Have fun!

    It's funny because I just bought those exact combo of papers at Michaels to decoupage (sp?) my little girl's wooden letters that spell her name out.


thank you for commenting, dahling! I can't wait to hear what you have to say. :-)
