Vintage, Baby

I've always had a thing for old stuff, you could say I'm a bit of an old soul, so I love the whole vintage movement that's happening with decor. After finding this great vintage-inspired baby shower invitation on, inspired me to create a vintage baby shower board.

My head was whirling with all kinds of fun ideas, but here are a couple of pics I found that represent what I envision as a retro/vintage baby shower for a girl. I think the vintage tin containers are adorable for centerpiece decorations, and you could keep the theme going with vintage toys on the tables, etc. The poms over the dining table are great too - I've been seeing these a lot on party planning websites and you can buy them at Michaels.

For additional decor I thought a vintage candy-shop bar/buffet could be lots of fun, and guests could fill up little bags of the candy to take as favors. The hostesses can all wear vintage aprons (love them!) to add another level to the theme. As another fun additional to the vintage theme, old wive's tales could be posted around the room, or read before the mother opens her gifts.



  1. oh girl! I have been brainstorming about what to do for Macy's 10th birthday party...I could totally use something like this. Thank you! XOXO

  2. I found three websites that give 10 FREE Cards, FREE Shipping and have lots of unique baby showers invitation, personalized Baby Shower Invitations and custom baby shower invitations cards at:

    I have ordered from all three for my pregnancy, baby shower and birth announcements and been very pleased. Take a look and see what you think.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
