Today’s featured party is fun, unique theme for a baby shower that you don’t see every day – it’s a Vintage School baby shower created by our friend Jen from Sweeten Your Day Events! Jen wanted to throw a baby shower for a close friend of hers, but since it was her 2nd baby, she didn’t want something really big. Jen decided on an intimate luncheon with some of their closest friends.
The backdrop for the dessert table included an old window frame with vintage paper inset into each pane. Vintage flash cards strung onto twine with clothespins were used to create the darling bunting. Additional vintage school themed accessories used throughout the party included wood letter blocks, books, apples and flash cards – so cute!!
Jen’s inspiration for the dessert table was her own sack lunches she used to have as a kid – which usually included a pb&j sandwich, an apple, cookies and a carton of milk. Desserts for the shower included peanut butter and jelly bars, mini apple pies and cookies and milk parfait’s – genius!!
Centerpieces for the seating table included vintage paper along with a basket of apples, stacks of books, vintage flash cards and wood blocks.
For lunch, guests were served their meal in a brown paper sack and included a chicken salad croissant sandwich, chips, salad and a fruit cup with letter cookies. Jen used a paper doily and a sweet pink ribbon to embellish the paper sacks.
The fun invitation definitely set the tone for the school-themed baby shower.
I absolutely love this theme for a baby shower and Jen did such a fabulous job of including some darling details that just pulled the vintage school theme together so well. Thanks so much Jen, for letting us share your Vintage School Baby Shower with our readers!
