A Wonderful Vintage Prince Baby Shower to Die For
As soon as I found out my oldest daughter was pregnant, the planning began for a Wonderful Vintage Prince Baby Shower to Die For. This baby shower was extra special because it was for my soon to be grandson. He will be treated like a lil prince, hence the inspiration for the baby shower.
The theme was found so I began by creating a few DIY accessories for this lil prince PARTY: the invitation, hand fans, and tiny flags for the drinks. I’ll share later this week how to make these DIY projects-promise 🙂
A VINTAGE PRINCE BABY SHOWER
From the outdoors, arriving guest can see this wall of windows with a garland of vintage white baby linens. Upon entering the residence, is this table to the right. I wanted to create a vignette of memories here so, I placed a large guest signature board with baby’s ultra sound picture on the center of it. Below it sit vintage blue infant converse (belonging to 13 year-old uncle-to-be). Next, is a large vintage silver vase from Pottery Barn holding a blue Prince crown , baby’s breath and white roses. Also, a wire basket full of diapers for late night changes with messages written with inspiring words by the guests.
Across the hall are beautiful sheer ruffled drapes, (a GREAT backdrop for a quick pic). Also, a small table holding a burlap wrapped chalkboard reading ” it’s a Prince” and a bodysuit keepsake reading, “I am loved”
Above the fire-place in the living room, also hangs a garland of vintage baby boy clothing.
The celebration took place outdoors, so along the pathway were these blue baby footprints to guide guest to the backyard. ( You can get your own copy of these adorable footprints at Scrapcation Getaway Blog).
Outdoors: A Vintage Prince Baby Shower
White linens covered both the tables and chairs. Place settings consist of white china placed on silver chargers and white or blue cotton napkins held by blue porcelain napkin rings.
Each table had a different vintage book and a milk glass vase with fresh flowers. A black & white picture featuring the guest of honor and tall, white candle holders are also placed on each table.
Guest ate pork chops, macaroni & cheese, mashed potatoes, green tossed salad with a roll on the side. They drank fresh lemonade or tea served in mason jars.
Desserts served included a variety of gourmet cookies, chocolate covered pretzels and macaroons. Also, a custom white cake filled with fresh fruit, topped with a gold crown and adorned with a large burlap bow.
This baby shower was about a year ago. So why am I busy planning a Fabulous Boho Baby Shower?
Because I recently found out my other daughter is expecting, so I am busy designing her baby shower and I will be sharing it with you as I come up with ideas.
