Using Vintage for Baby Shower

Pin It
A while back I had the privilege to help decorate for a friend's baby shower.

We gathered keepsakes that we had, and put them together. 
These baby shoes were my Mom's once upon a time.


These little Kewpie dolls belong to my Mother-in-law.


They are so cute!


I love the different expressions.


This vintage child's bike belonged to my husband's uncle.


I have a collection of these Eloise Wilkin Golden Books. 
 Baby Dear is one of my favorites.


Child's cup, spoon and fork.


A pretty christening gown on a vintage hanger.


We can't forget the delicious desserts!
  Ice cream sodas in a vintage milk bottle tote.


Take your pick of four different kinds of Cheesecake, displayed on my milk glass cake plate.

We didn't spend a dime on decorations, we used what we had and it turned out so cute! 
I love using vintage.

Adorable baby shower! I have a collection of books illustrated by Eloise Wilkin. We Help Mommy and We Help Daddy are some of my favorites from when I was a child.

Looks like a fun and pretty time. Can't beat the fact that the decor was free!
