I have a beautiful lamb planter that I love that would be adorable on the table with the cake. Plus I have several other baby planters....maybe with fresh flowers inside, all one color...so as to draw attention to the planter as well. I'll have to show you a photo of these things, I'm just thinking right now.
I'm going to make the invitations....last week Michael's had their economy blank card packs half price so I bought a package of white and a package of ivory, not knowing what would work with the images I have.
Several years ago I purchased a lot of antique baby cards from a seller on ebay with the MOST beautiful graphics ever! I'll scan a few designs in, print them out and paste onto the cards ~ Maybe even frame one just for Emily. When I scan them in, I'll be sure to share them too!
Plus I know I want to make a beautiful banner to hang in the bay window ~ something that she could save as a keepsake.....We're planning on the first weekend in February as all others are quite booked up 'till the baby's birth.....Can you tell I'm getting excited??
I want to make the cake too.....a sour cream/buttermilk pound cake with wonderful buttercream icing! Maybe have strawberries with marshmallow cream cheese dip, spinach dip with an assortment of crackers, and a few more things....Oh and Fruit Tea ~ this stuff is the BEST. It's like a gallon of sweet tea, mixed with one can of frozen concentrate orange juice, one can frozen lemonade, and I think one can of pineapple juice...it's so yummy.
I have several wonderful vintage chenille spreads, maybe I could make a sweet blanket out of several squares and use it on the dining table as a table scarf then after it's laundered ~ it will be a blanket for the babe?
For party favors, I'm thinking of making instant Russian tea mix and placing it in those squatty canning jars and covering the lids with pretty fabric circles with the edges pinked and tied with ribbon. Have you ever went to a baby shower and received a really nice party favor? What was it? I'd love to know if you have an other ideas ~ I don't want to give them something they'll want to chunk in the trash when they get home! :)
I think I'd better get busy, don't you? If you have any other ideas to decorate for the vintage baby shower, I'd love to hear them!!! Wishing you all a restful and relaxing Sunday dear friends ~
