Shabby Chic Baby Shower Decor - Vintage Style

Since I was a little girl, I had a tendency to like cottage chic decor.... especially those little girl bedrooms full of white distressed furniture with pink floral bedding and splashes of aqua here and there. I remember when I first saw a picture of a beautiful 'shabby chic' bedroom set portrayed on a JC Penney Catalog... I was probably 10 and I ripped the page and kept it for years. Yes, I have been scrapping for a long time! 

When I first got pregnant, I knew that if I was having a baby girl, I was going to make her the most beautiful shabby chic nursery ever ;) ...God blessed me with a little sailor and instead, I designed for him a not too shabby nautical retreat.

I have been saving a shabby chic nursery post for later this year...I have an ongoing project that I would love to share with all of you, but it's not finished ;). I will make sure to come back to this post and write an update when the time comes. Well, I do not have a shabby chic nursery for you today, but I do have a beautiful shabby chic baby shower that I designed for Daniela based on the colors pink, aqua and lavender.

Shabby Chic cardstock is not easy to find. To make a sturdy banner, I printed shabby chic scrapbooking paper and mounted it onto solid color coordinating cardstock.

Shabby Chic Baby Shower Banner
This particular banner read: "Lu's Baby Shower" - a long one, yes - 

This time I incorporated pastel color mini clothes pins instead of wooden ones. Both types are itty bitty cute and pretty :) ! 

The patterns include roses, stripes and damask.

I made cupcake toppers out of the tiny roses on pink and tiny roses on aqua papers. I do not carry this design of cupcake toppers anymore - printed on the back - I would only make them if custom ordered. They are a little more time - and ink- consuming therefore, the cost is higher. 

These are the food tents. I sent these blank because the customer hadn't decided on the menu just yet. But I do offer them with the food names printed on it. 

We kept the cupcake wrappers in coordinating solid colors. These are the perfect final touch for the cupcakes. 

Cupcake wrappers ship flat and ready to assemble. 

These are two samples of shabby chic baby shower favor tags. Tiny roses on pink...{very popular in my shop} and featured on an Etsy Treasury.
