Shelly’s vintage baby shower

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

I rarely ever post about anything non-wedding, but this baby shower designed by Danielle Thompson is so pretty and so modern, I had to share it here.

Danielle designed this party for her sister, Shelly. She made chocolate bar wraps by scanning an illustration from a vintage children’s book and layering it on top of her digital patterned houndstooth paper.

Danielle purchased the crepe paper flowers from an etsy seller, but they’re also easy to make. All you need is crepe paper (crepe streamers from the party store work well), faux pearls from a craft store like Michael’s, toothpicks, and backers for the pom poms (like circular pieces of paper) to make them stick to the toothpicks.

Danielle used Martha Stewart’s pom pom kit {pom poms always make a room look festive!}. MS also has directions here on how to make your very own. The folding techinque you’ll use for big pom poms is identical to what you would use for the small pom cupcake toppers.

Danielle found these sweet vintage style nut baskets on etsy, which she used to hold favors.

To see more of Danielle’s work, visit her etsy shop, Tiny Bazaar, here. You can also find her digital kits here and here. Thank you Danielle!
