In my previous post, I shared the vintage decorations I used for a baby shower in our home. Today, I’m sharing the tables for that shower.
My black umbrella does have pastel polka dots on it. I stuck it in a stemmed vase and covered the handle with bright pink tulle. A stork flag (which my daughter used in her yard when she had her first baby) hangs on the door behind the table.
I surrounded the base of the vase with a pink feather boa and silver baby mugs filled with Crepe Myrtle blooms (one of the mugs belonged to me, another to my Mother, and a few of them were gifts to my children when they were born – I can’t get my adult children to take their things to their houses). The ruffled pink table topper is a baby blanket.
As I told you in my previous post, I was not hosting this party. The hostess for the shower asked if she could have it at my house, because she lives out of town. Of course, decorating for a party is my favorite part of hosting. I didn’t have to provide the food, just the décor. I used a bright pink patterned tablecloth, and the party hostess brought pink cupcakes and pink lemonade. Nobody who attended this shower could have had any doubt that this baby is going to be a girl.
