Vintage Pink Baby Shower

I recently co-hosted a baby shower for my sister.  We decided to go with a vintage pink theme.  It was so fun to create!  Here are a few pics of our decorations.

We bought the burlap pennant banner at Hobby Lobby and painted her name on it with stencils and white craft paint.  When using these stencils, apply the paint with a sponge brush and make sure you blot the paint on rather than brushing it so that you get nice lines.

We bought several yards of pink cotton fabric and cut it into large squares.  We hemmed the edges but you could use Stitch Witchery to finish the edges if you don't sew.  These fabric squares were an easy and inexpensive way to add color to the tables.

We added ruffle trim to basic burlap table runners for a more feminine look.  Again, we sewed this but you could get the same look with Stitch Witchery.

To give the cutlery a special look, we rolled our pink paper napkins around the forks, added a paper doily and tied a burlap twine bow around it all.  This was also practical.  It's easier for the guests to grab their fork and napkin rolled up like this than getting both items separately.

We made these cute food labels with scrapbook paper, DIY label stickers and a paper cutter.  First, I made the labels using a free chalkboard label template I found online.  I printed the labels on regular printer paper and cut them out.  Then I used my Xyron Sticker Maker to turn them into stickers.  I cut out squares of scrapbook paper, folded them in half to make tent cards and cut the edges with a lace design paper cutter.  Then I put the label stickers on the tent cards.  This was so easy but it made the table look extra special.

For the flower arrangements, we painted several mason jars with pink chalk paint, tied burlap ribbon around the neck of the jars, and filled them with pink roses, white spider mums and baby's breath.  A small amount of flowers went a long way.  We were able to make seven arrangements with just a dozen roses, six spider mums and two bunches of baby's breath.

My mom had a few items personalized by West End Monogram.  We hung them on a piece of burlap twine like a clothesline and added a couple tissue paper pom-poms for more color.

I made the burlap print that we used to decorate the mantle.  It's now available in my shop if you'd like one of your own!  It's great for shower decor and also makes a great gift or nursery decor.

For favors, we used Bath & Body Works PocketBac in Sweet Pea scent.  I made labels using scrapbook paper, a circle cutter, hole punch and a "thank you" rubber stamp.  

For the favor table, I made this burlap print.  Check out my Etsy shop for more prints.  If you're interested in something like this, message me through Etsy.  I love custom orders!
