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 my lil prince, hence the inspiration for the baby shower.
Since the theme was quickly selected, I began by creating a few DIY accessories for this lil’ prince baby shower: the invitation, hand-held fans, and tiny flags for the straws. I’ll share later this week how I made these DIY projects-promise 🙂
A VINTAGE PRINCE BABY SHOWER
I opted for a clean and sophisticated design for this shing-ding, choosing a white color theme with touches of silver (Oh- and a mix of old & new, of course).
From the outdoors, arriving guest were greeted by this wall of windows decorated with a garland of vintage white baby linens. Upon entering the residence, sat this table. I wanted to create a vignette of memories so, I placed a large guest signature board with baby’s ultra sound picture on it. Below it sit vintage blue infant converse (belonging to 13 year-old uncle-to-be). Next to it, was a large vintage silver vase from Pottery Barn holding a blue DIY Prince crown, baby’s breath and fresh white roses. Also, a wire basket full of diapers for late night changes with messages with inspiring words from arriving guests.
Across the hall, beautiful sheer ruffled drapes were a GREAT backdrop for a quick pic. Also, a small table holding chalkboard reading ” it’s a Prince” and a bodysuit keepsake reading, “I am loved” could be seen.
Above the fire-place in the living room, another a garland of vintage baby boy clothing could be spotted.
Since the celebration took place outdoors, along the walkway were these adorable blue baby footprints to guide guest to the backyard. (You can get your own copy of these footprints at Scrapcation Getaway Blog).
Outdoors: A Vintage Prince Baby Shower
White linens covered both the tables and chairs. Place settings consisted of white china plates placed on silver chargers. White or blue cotton napkins held by blue porcelain napkin rings were also used.
Each table had a different vintage book, a milk glass vase filled with fresh flowers, a black & white picture featuring the guest of honor, and tall white candle sticks.
Guest were served pork chops, macaroni & cheese, mashed potatoes, green tossed salad with a roll on the side. They drank lemonade or tea from mason jars.
Desserts served included a variety of gourmet cookies, chocolate covered pretzels and macaroons. Along with 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 and was such a success. Everyone had such a great time.
On to the next baby shower (my other baby girl is expecting). Possibly a Fabulous Boho theme? I’ll keep you updated.
