I would like to point out that to we Southerners, a shower, whether it be for a baby, wedding, house warming, etc., is not just about the spoiling. Showers and parties are the perfect way to make someone feel loved and supported by the community they live in, or by the church family they have chose to be a part of. You've never felt so special until you sit and look around a room filled with the people you loved most, who have all gathered to take time out and celebrate you! The gifts are just an expression of love and support, as we honor the special times and the new chapters in life. (And... the gifts at Southern showers can be abundant and overwhelming!)
To add to the vintage feel, we used lace on most of the tables, which made the room feel very sweet and nostalgic. The food table was covered with a vintage cloth from Roxie's collection. As guests arrived, their fist stop was to sign the guest book. We put together a little book for baby Lila (with the help of Katelyn's beautiful lettering) for all of the guests to write little notes in. We thought this would be such a sweet little keepsake for Tara to read later and for Lila to have as a grown up. How special it will be for her to be able to look back and know how loved she was, even before she was born!
Our shop is stocked with cute gift ideas for wedding and baby. Look around while you are here, we'll be glad to send a little something your way!
