My incredible sister and friends threw me a fabulous baby shower. The theme was vintage nautical and they nailed it, down to every detail. Instead of the normal puff paint or fabric marker onesie decorating, we had vintage iron-ons that were pressed on to the outfits, bibs, hats, etc. Even the toys that were used as decoration were either vintage or nautical themed. They kept it simple, clean, bright, and not typical baby shower decor at all.
My husband and I are a lover of all things vintage, so they knew we would appreciate the decor the chose so much! We love the look of anything nautical as well, we even incorporated some of it in to his nursery!
Vintage with pops of shabby chic for this shower!

I think I loved the centerpieces the most, but the old frame with fabric holding my maternity photos comes in a close second!
Don't be afraid to use practical pieces also as decor. For example, use a sail boat to hold candy! Bright flowers help brighten up the tables, and a constant theme throughout helps, although don't make everything match exactly...mixing it up, while staying with theme is the best.
