A Project For

Baby Shower




We went with the "cute as a button" theme and also combined that with a vintage feel using a lot of burlap, mason jars, and baby's breathe.

Design Inspiration

Our nursery room colors, and our families' antique mason jars.

Decorating Style


Project Details

We made almost everything ourselves including the fabric & pennant banners, the large wooden button garland the paper button garland. The galvanized items like the three tier stand the glasses were on and the drink dispensers were all from Pottery Barn.

The photos are a combination from two showers one at my mom's and the other at my mother-in-laws, but we shared a lot of the decorations and all worked together to create the look we wanted.

    I’m one of those ladies who have an unexplainable fondness for buttons, too! In fact, my husband calls me the crazy button lady. So if there’s someone who could appreciate your “cute as a button” theme, that’s me!

    My mom made the button garland that was strung on the staircase, after buying a few very expensive wooden buttons from etsy.

    I love the “wishes for baby” and “advice for mother” cards. Looked on Etsy and didn’t find the templates. Do you have a source?
