Vintage Baby Decor

Hello everyone!

Happy Hump Day!

Thought I'd share some "decor detail" pics from my son's recent Christening.

Whenever there's a big event in our family, I always try to think of a theme. It's so much easier and more fun to plan a party that way. The last party we threw was a nautical one for my son's birthday - see this post here.

For the reception after the blessing, I wanted sort of a vintage baby theme.

I didn't have much time to execute all that I wanted. In fact, I only got to make one part of the party and that was the front of one of the favors. :(

But Baby Gardner came through. It's a website that sells vintage goodies for babes, and I had been smitten for a while with their stationary section.

I especially loved this baby carriage image.



Here are one of the favors - I ordered Baby Gardner's favor bags and filled with an assortment of blue and white candies. Tootsie Rolls, Bliss chocolate, Lifesaver mints. Because we couldn't buy as many favor bags as there were guests, we made other favors instead.


The smaller pic actually makes up a cupcake topper. At first, I thought I was going to make cupcakes but we decided on a cake instead.



My sister helped made these candy bar covers. I just love what she came up with for the back! Isn't it sooo cute & sweet?!!!


I used this to decorate one of the tables - vintage blocks (also from Baby Gardner).



And the Chinese restaurant where we held the reception was kind enough to make personalized fortune cookie messages as one of the other favors!


I'll include pics of the actual celebrant later.
