Vintage Baby Shower

Several months ago a close friend and her husband shared some amazing news, that they would be adopting a little girl!  With much love and planning a few of us girls jumped right in to throw her a gorgeous shower that would celebrate the news of the baby girl that they would soon bring home.

Becky and I took an old pallet from the back yard and made the sign for Beth’s little girl.  It was our gift to her, and it currently hangs in her nursery:)  The dresser is a TRUE antique that I painted pink and distressed with sandpaper.  I have always wanted to make a mini fabric banner and hang it at an angle like we did, I think it turned out great!  Steph made this GORGEOUS cake for Beth, the rosettes turned out perfect, and it was an ombre cake on the inside!

Here is a close up of the cake!  Steph truly is a talented baker!

We added pink touches throughout the house! Silk and fabric roses on the lamp, real pink roses, and  a burlap wreath.

We wanted something sweet and sentimental for Beth to show her little one someday.  Each guest left their thumb print on the tree.

The Mimosa Bar was a huge hit!  We had all sorts of fun juices and toppings.

Each guest had a champagne glass with a baby item tag.  It’s a fun way to keep track of glasses!

Mason jars held the silverware.  We wrapped each set in a pink napkin and lace.  Then added a pink paper straw.

Becky, Steph, and myself.  We make a GREAT team.  I loved every second of planning this shower with you girls.  You are amazing friends, Godly women, and an inspiration to me.

(I also love that you can see the decorated mantle in the background!)
