This past Saturday I was thrilled to work with my mom-&-sister-in-law to celebrate my newest nephew with a Vintage Airplane Baby Shower! We had an intimate group, yummy food and fun decorations from a combination of items on hand, Hobby Lobby and Etsy. Here are a few photos…
My mother in law, Patti had these great vintage suit cases. In the entry one suit case held the favors, white-chocolate covered jumbo pretzels made by sis-in-law Katie. The red plane was from Hobby Lobby and we had a great time working with Jessica of InBetweeNEverthing, who designed and customized the invitation for us. We had the globe and the cards just in front of it are these great FREE printables Katie found online at Pottery Barn Kids – we used what they deem the food label cards as advice cards.
On the food table, we put more vintage suitcases. Patti created the suitcase tags to hang on them – they were so cute!
We also set out my inflatable globe (fancy!) with another plane from Hobby Lobby.
We made a blue punch using this recipe (roughly) and added ice cream clouds & a new airplane bath toy. I also got these water bottle labels and a sign set on Etsy from PaperPatchINK (both not pictured).
And Patti used her mad skills to make the cake. As always, it was adorable!
I know some of you may have seen my fabric picture on Instagram/Facebook…
If you can believe it, I didn’t snap a picture of the finished product!! But I made a boppy cover using this pattern I had on hand and also a set of Car Seat Strap Covers (Tutorial here). Sadly, I also didn’t get too many pictures of us enjoying the party, but I did catch a few.

I am so glad I wasn’t the only photographer – I’ll have to catch up with the family later to swap photos since mine are so scarce! But all in all it was a fun time and lots of joy. Congratulations Megan & Brian and we can’t wait to meet this sweet baby boy!
