Vintage Chic Ivory & Pink Baby Shower!

A few weekends ago, I had the honor of throwing my little sister a Baby Shower!  We were born 18 months apart, got married 2 months apart, and are now having babies 7 months apart!  Yep, we are pretty close!...just wish we lived close.  :(  But that is one of reasons I was so excited about her shower!  It was in Indiana, so I got to go home!  I still say that after living in Florida for almost 7 years now.  Can anyone relate?

On with the shower...

I knew the theme had to be Vintage Chic to match my sister's favorite style, and some of her best-loved colors are "Light Rose" (Pink) & "Antique White" (Ivory) which fit well because she is having a girl!  So, where did I start?  A secret Pinterest board, of course!  But it's not a secret anymore, you can find it here!  I just love how it all came together.  Here are the details!


Decorations


~ "Cute as a Button" sign alongside baby pics of the mom & dad-to-be ~
~ vintage high chair with hydrangeas & baby's breath and an old handmade baby rocking chair with poem ~
~ OPI Bubble Bath nail polish favors and pink rose burlap runners for the tables ~


Food


For the Sunday afternoon shower, we served pecan chicken salad with croissants, caprese skewers, fruit with dip, cake, mini cupcakes, and pink lemonade!

Activities


1.  Each guest received a baby sock when they arrived.  The goal was to find its match by the end of the shower.  Then the mommy-to-be got to take the cute little socks home!
2.  A fun headband making station!
3.  Late Night Diapers for Mom Only ~ Idea from Driven by Decor
4.  Daddy-to-Be Quiz ~ He gets asked a few questions about parenting and mom's pregnancy.  Everyone predicts how he answered, even the mom-to-be.  The guest with the most answers right, wins!


Gifts

You may recognize a similar little soup can from my blueberry post!  I ordered the sweet "I'm IN love" onesie from this website.


Guests


About 30 girls were able to attend and even my little guy got to party some between his naps.

I am so grateful to have had the help of my sister's sister-in-law.  She hosted the party and did a TON of the prep work before I arrived the day before the party.  My mom was also instrumental in the planning process.  I had her running all over Indianapolis picking up things here and there.  So a big THANK YOU to both of you!

  3. Just love this Vintage Chic Ivory & Pink Baby Shower! I am glad that you shared this brilliant post here. My sister needs some baby shower ideas for her best friend and I think this post is absolutely right for her. She has already booked indoor event space NYC and was in need of theme ideas only.
