a vintage-inspired baby shower

Monday, July 4, 2011

i had the oppurtunity to help out my friend Nina a few weekends ago setting up a baby shower she was hosting for a dear friend. we had weeks to prepare, gathering accessories and bouncing off ideas with one another even at the wee hours of the night via texting. i had a blast planning this shower with her and she had full of lovely ideas that complemented with mine. 

if you recall, nina also hosted this baby shower in the past and this fun pool party for her twins' first birthday last year. all parties were amazing and i know this one was going to be too! 

i love that most of the accessories for the party were furniture and items from the twins' nursery such as the distressed blue diaper changer, blue and green mini suitcases and baskets with toile liners used for the drink station. the above crystals dangling from the gilded cake stand were crystals from her wedding years ago. repurposing items from your home and previous soirees are just the right thing to do and economical too!

stay tuned for Part 2 tomorrow and the complete list of party sources!

Great job! There are some truly gorgeous touches...like the vintage print on the bottle, or the distressed furniture used as a buffet. Looking forward to hopping over to the follow up for more pictures!
