Vintage Chic Baby Shower

 

When my girlfriend told me she was expecting twin boys I knew I had to throw her a baby shower that was double the fun!
I based the theme on the presents she asked for, which happened to be vintage gas station pumps and a toy car for the baby room. These ended up acting as the main focal point of the party, giving the shower the eccentric touch that made it so special.
This baby shower was as much fun to throw as it was to make. My favorite creation was the banner I fashioned out of burlap, ribbon, fake flowers and construction paper. The hot glue gun really came in handy with this project and the final product looked cuter (and cost less!) than anything I could have bought in a store.
I stayed with the burlap accents when it came to making all the other decorations for the baby shower, ensuring that everything perfectly tied together. For flowers, I chose blue hydrangeas and put them in glass vases that I wrapped in burlap and lace.

 

 

When I stumbled upon little burlap canvases at Michael’s I knew I had to use them for something. So, I used my trusty hot glue gun again and stuck wooden animal figures on the individual canvases, creating both festive decor for the party and for the twin’s bedrooms.
With the money I saved making all the decorations, I was able to buy a lovely birdcage cake that was adorned with hand painted blue birds. It really was almost too beautiful to eat!
Sitting on the table with the cake, I displayed a spread of different sized glass jars filled with various types of blue candy. I then put out customized mason jars that I had labeled with everyone’s name. This way all the guests could satisfy their sweet tooth by bringing candies home with them.

 

 

Along with the candy, party-goers received little burlap bags that contained blue loofahs and other bath essentials. These parting gifts were both thoughtful and kept in the theme of the party, something to always keep in mind when decorating.
All the burlap and blue touches combined to make the perfect presentation of rustic beauty that this boyish baby shower needed. This was definitely one of my favorite events to create!
