Classic Vintage Toys Baby Shower

This Vintage Toys Baby Shower was originally hosted over at Party Love by Jessica.

I love that Jessica took the time to think outside of the box and come up with a theme that was unique. Vintage Classic Toys…what a great idea. And how fun for all those guests to see those toys. I’m sure there were major flashbacks going on! Thanks for listing your baby shower Jessica.

Enjoy this vintage baby shower…..

this past weekend my friend, rachelle, and i threw a baby shower for our friend, debran.  she did all the food..i did all of the decor.  worked out perfectly. :)  i wanted to do a theme that i haven’t seen..or isn’t super popular right now.  then i started thinking about vintage/classic toys.  i loved the idea..especially since there were so many different ways you could go with it.  i have been planning for months now, during which i found out i am pregnant and am having a boy too!  i have been so inspired by the theme that i actually think i am going to do the baby’s nursery in it!  i have a vision, and i am really excited about it.  ok, back to the shower..haha.  congratulations debran!  i loved planning this for you! :)
balloons are a necessity at any event, right?  i was so excited to find these wagon balloons at partypail.com.  they actually have a red wagon theme, which is really cute if anyone is looking for stuff.  i found the baby boy balloons at party city.

of course i had to use my chalkboard to welcome guests


i created a sign in for her as a keepsake.

m&m’s anyone? ;)

i found this vintage plane at a local antique store.

i had arranged with my friend sarah to take maternity pictures of debran.  we surprised her with a collage..her pics turned out so cute! (you can see some of them at itsybitsyphotography.blogspot.com)

how i am totally in love with sock monkeys now!!  target has the cutest classic toy replica section..and i was able to find a lot of toys there..including this cute sock monkey jack in the box.


my first diaper cake. :)




i found these vintage ducks (i forget their exact name now) on ebay.  i love them!

for one of the games i did a guess how many blocks are in the jar (instead of the usual candy, etc).


i found this old bucket at an antique store as well…and i loved how so many things i found are magnetic..so it was perfect for the alphabet/number magnets.

i hung a bunch of lanterns over the center island where the food was served


i created a clothesline…i had found this collection at crazy 8 months ago.  i thought a slinky would make for a more appropriate clothesline. ;) haha.


my sister, melissa, created the stickers for me.


cracker jacks for favors

a banner i made

i loved creating little sayings out of blocks around the house

another game we played was the candy bar baby game.  i had found it here (thank you!!) a long time ago and had bookmarked it.  it was something different and so fun!

yum!!  it only took me 4 different stores to gather this collection of everything i needed! haha!



i put together a toy tree.











rachelle did the baby in the ice game.  whoever got their baby out first won!  i wish i would have taken pics of everyone doing that! haha




the food was so yummy.  i don’t think i actually got a picture of everything..yummy appetizers, 3 different salads, fruit, bread and jam.

the cupcakes :)

they were able to customize them for me.  i loved this detail.


rachelle preparing the food :)


i forgot to take pics of the plates..but like the napkins i had toy plates for appetizers and square polka dot plates for lunch. i found them at platesandnapkins.com



again, taking advantage of the magnetic letters i was able to create the due date!

present time :)


the guest of honor and myself :)

we are both on our third baby and have been pregnant every single time together (we didn’t know each other yet with the first one) but our girls are a couple weeks apart, our boys are also about 6 weeks apart, and then again our boys will be a couple months apart.  how funny, huh?  how often does that happen?  debran is also entertaining the idea of a vintage toy nursery now too!  it’s definitely a fun and happy theme!  i can’t wait to bounce ideas off of each other! :)
