A Vintage Farmhouse Baby Shower!


On Saturday, we celebrated a sweet mom, who is new to the area, and her baby girl on the way! Though the couple has a cute little boy, this is their first baby girl. So of course we had to go all out girly at the shower! 

My hope was to create a farmhouse feel with a vintage flair… A simple, but special, backdrop where people would feel welcome and relaxed as we celebrated this gift of a new life.

This 100-year-old cradle welcomed guests to the porch.

I loved the Pom Poms in blush and gold tones by Paperwhite Designs. You can find them here. (The round-edge ones were my favorite since they reminded me of peonies.)

The sweet baby dresses were found at an antique store in Snohomish. I liked the vintage touch they added to the party. They were strung from twine and hung with clothespins, to give the feel of an old-fashioned clothesline.

This picture was taken before all the food arrived but it shows the burlap "Baby Girl" banner that was hung from the table.

For flowers, I used simple bouquets of lilac and
lavender from our garden. The scent was a bonus!

Little baby shoes were hung from the fabric tied garland.

So many amazing ladies brought food! Look at this rustic cheese tray on chalkboard slate, complete with cheddar-with-chocolate-shavings cheese!

For favors, guests took a flower seed pocket as they left the party. Find out how to make them here.

Hope your week is off to a great start!

  1. This is beyond adorable!!! I love all the little details you added. Where on earth did you find the beautiful table cloths you used for both of the tables? I've been looking for the same type but have not had any luck finding them with that length. I just found your blog from a pin on pinterest, I'm off to check out the rest of it :)

  2. Thanks so much Shannon! The table cloth on the food table was a gift from my Mom. She custom made it for us to get the right length. I'm very appreciative! If you're a sewer, I'll tell you that my Mom recently purchased a "ruffler" attachment for her sewing machine. She said it makes all the difference!

    The other ruffled table cloth is actually two ruffled bed skirts, layered on top of each other : ) Sometimes you can find them in second hand stores VERY reasonably!
