I am delighted to share photos of a gorgeous vintage meets modern baby shower. My friend, Kelsey, who happens to be the very talented designer behind Max's birth announcement and first birthday party, is expecting her first child with her husband Eric. Friends and family gathered recently to celebrate mama-to-be and as soon as I saw the photos I knew I wanted to share them. Thanks to Kelsey for allowing us to take a peek into her beautiful baby shower.

Vintage Baby Shower Inspiration
Kelsey's mom, a fabulous wedding planner in Phoenix, Arizona, tells us about the baby shower:
Inspiration started with a vintage pram and developed into a modern/vintage theme mixing elements of the modern chevron with the vintage props…hankies…bassinet….old toys…etc. and Kelsey’s love of milk glass and vintage pieces. The venue is one of Kelsey's favorites to work at when we do weddings, and the style of the greenhouse went perfectly with the theme. Eric's aunts, cousins, sister-in-law, and mom were also inspired by the theme, and the group effort created a spectacular event.

The dad-to-be's aunts were in charge of the cute and clever mimosa, "mom-osa" and juice bar. They also created the favors: mason jars of lemon sugar scrub.
