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.

  3. love the pom poms and the baby shoes, this looks great!

  4. love this vignette. your new faucet looks great, too!

  5. This look is amazing! I love it!!!
    I'm all about things vintage too! Thanks for the great ideas!!!

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 Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
