A Project For

Baby Shower

Location

Ohio

Description

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

antique/vintage

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!

    Did you make the large wood buttons or purchase them? If you purchased them, please tell me where!

    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?

    So sorry this is probably to late for everyone, but maybe it can help for future mom’s to be. The Wishes for Baby card was designed by my sister-in-law. I think she found the content just online but edited it to go with the theme, and it was the same with all the other “cards”, too. I found a template and then edited it to match my color scheme. The large wooden buttons my mom made out of the wooden circles she got at Hobby Lobby and then drilled the holes and painted them.

    Is it possible to get the directions for the large wooden buttons. The look rounded and natural not like just like flat wood. Maybe an item number from hobby lobby? Planning a shower in October for my daughter and want to get started ASAP
