Are you planning a baby shower and love the vintage look? This sweet vintage baby shower styled by Simply Sienna is full of inspiration. While this shower was actually planned and styled for a mom expecting a little girl, the neutral color palette and sweet vintage touches would also work well for a gender-neutral or boy’s baby shower. We happen to think it would also make for a beautiful christening, baptism, or boy’s first birthday party. The celebration boasts incredible baby shower decorations including a collection of vintage bird cages, Mason jars, old frames, twine balls, and beautiful baby shower party favors that the guests got to keep!

- A Vintage Style Baby Shower is the perfect theme to celebrate
Celebrating new life calls for a special kind of gathering. To create this lovely shower, a fabulous mix of vintage pieces was used to produce a classic, sophisticated look. A backdrop for the refreshments was created using a gray, oversized windowpane style mirror, along with a fabric-covered backdrop that featured the sweetest framed baby onesie. Use mini clothespins and twine to hold the baby onesie in place.
The refreshment table showcased an assortment of glass apothecary jars, a bird cage, and a dessert pedestal that was filled with delightful treats ranging from cookies and donuts to white chocolate-covered pretzels, cupcakes, and candy. The sweets all coordinated with the neutral color palette of white, yellow, and gray which were prominent in the fabric backdrop. Don’t forget the darling paper rosettes used to dress up cupcakes and candy jars. The addition of twine, printable labels, and rosettes are special touches that give this baby shower a finished look.
Old books were used as risers, giving height to various elements of the display while maintaining the vintage feel. Sweet details like vintage bird décor and bookends added interest to the display. Of particular interest was an old copper tea set beautifully displayed on a tray next to an arrangement of baby’s breath and baby shower favor jars, topped with lovely “thanks” labels.
Would you believe that the inspiration for this shower came from the client’s China—a stunning Wedgwood pattern! Each place setting at the dining table featured vintage tea cups and layers of beautiful China. Tissue poms and gray twine balls were hung overhead. Ceiling installations always add interest and help to create a more intimate setting. Vintage birdcages, classic books, and additional twine balls were clustered together in the middle of the table as a coordinating centerpiece, effectively anchoring the decorations from the refreshment table with the dining table.
The dining table set up is reminiscent of days long gone when friends once met up for finger sandwiches and tea and to share the latest gossip. More sweet details included bottles of Perrier lined up on a serving tray. Each came embellished with a gray and white striped paper straw and a “drink me” tag tied on with baker’s twine. A beautiful beverage station was established that featured some bubbly for guests to enjoy at this gorgeous baby shower brunch. Dozens of champagne flutes were styled in rows next to a beautiful Mason jar flower arrangement. “Making life a little sweeter” was handwritten on a chalkboard sign—a great sentiment to share with special friends who had gathered to celebrate a sweet baby.
