Vintage Stork Baby Shower

This past weekend I had the pleasure of creating the dessert table for my cousin’s baby shower. My aunt and I chose the theme months ago, before we knew the baby’s gender. My aunt shares the same love of all things vintage, so it was easy for us to agree on a theme. We went with vintage storks!

This table was so fun. I made a turquoise ribbon cake and placed it on an old baby scale, which actually worked and informed us the cake weighed 12lbs! The cookies were baby carriages, rattles, and babies in blankets. Sugared cake pops stood inside an antique glass baby carriage, topped with the iconic pastel baby shower mints. Tiny pacifiers were tied around the mini apple cobblers, and nestled inside an old tin bread box. Blue mason jars, milk glass vases and even an old baby bottle warmer held beautiful blue and white hydrangeas. I made bunting and garlands out of fabric scraps I’d scored at an estate sale, and hung them from old doors for the backdrop.

Naturally, living in Seattle, we woke up to thundershowers the morning of the shower. Our outside baby shower had to be moved indoors, which no one was thrilled about. Furniture had to be moved out, and shower decor had to be brought in. I guess when you live in Seattle, you just have to count on the rain. It always seems to make it’s appearance on days I’m throwing a party!
