Vintage Baseball Baby Shower



Hey y'all!  I'm so excited to show you today's post!  I teamed up with several fabulous ladies and we threw an adorable vintage baseball themed shower for my cousin!  If you follow us on Facebook, you probably saw a sneak peak a few weeks ago!  

My cousin, Stephanie decided on a theme and us girls went straight to....wait for it....

PINTEREST!!!

Shocker? 
No? 
Ok...well....
I came across this adorable printable package and knew this was exactly what we were looking for! 



I partnered up with Naomi, the talented designer of these adorable printables, and the shower was a total hit!  Everything was so easy since she already did all of the hard work creating the printables!  We love how the shower turned out and we got so many compliments on all of our decor! 



We used the pennants and foam finger printables for our centerpieces.  We used vases that we all had on hand, and filled them with baseball game snacks like peanuts, popcorn, sunflower seeds and cracker jacks! 



We cut AstroTurf into squares to help finish off our centerpieces.



One of my favorite parts.....



We bought ivory colored, twin, flat sheets from Wal-Mart to use as tablecloths.  (shout out to my girl Tonya from Love of Family & Home for this huge money saving tip!!!)

I'll share a tutorial soon for creating the stitch lines!




I have some old bi-fold doors that I use for a lot of backdrops and knew they'd be perfect for the baby shower!  The cute banner came in the printable package and so did all of the food labels!



The fabric garland adds so much and is super simple to throw together!  Tutorial coming soon on this, too! 







We stuck with the traditional baseball game foods and served popcorn, nachos and hot dogs!












The cupcake toppers came with the printable package also and I used Picmonkey.com to add the lettering. 











I used one of the blank food labels and created this sign.  We had everyone sign the baseball for baby Abner. 



This might have been my other favorite part.  We saw the idea on Pinterest and re-created it.  My Aunt Leann used a blank canvas and painted the baseball and quote on it.  I used the blank food label to create the sign here, too.  



We put out a red stamp pad and had every one leave their fingerprint on the baseball as the stitching. 






These favor tags were another wonderful part of the printables package.  We had a local bakery make these cute little baseball cookies and the guests took one home with them. 



We even had real coke bottles!



We decorated the entry-way with more signage from the package and some vintage baseball gear! 



My amazing Nana made this beautiful quilt for baby Abner.  She always puts a special message on the back of our quilts for us.  I don't think she realizes how much we cherish this!  She made Guthrie the same quilt and we love it! 



Nothing is forgotten in the printable package, y'all!  Restroom signs and field entrance signs are included and look how adorable they are!



Here's the glowing mama-to-be with her shower memorabilia.  



You might remember this from my best friends baby shower last year.  We loved the idea so much we did it for my cousin, too.  All of the guests took turns writing advice or messages to Stephanie, Bill and Baby Abner and then I photographed them holding the board.  Stephanie will have a wonderful, personalized photo album to remember her baby shower and all of her friends and family who celebrated with her!  And, take a look at this awesome advice...!!!

Ok, that was total photo overload, but I wanted to show you every detail!

These printables can be used for a birthday party, too!  Naomi is soooooooo great to work with and she is one seriously talented girl!  Check out these other things she has available in her shop...


I'm loving those airplane invites and the inspirational wall art!  How adorable are those!?!?

Huge shout out to Naomi for teaming up with me and making this shower such a hit!  The shower would not have been the same without your creative printables!  


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Stay tuned for a 4th of July post (because 4th of July posts are written in August?), fabric garland tutorial, baseball table cloth tutorial and photo's from the wedding I got to photograph this past weekend!  

Have an awesome week!
