Planes, Trains & Automobiles Baby Shower!

This weekend I hosted, along with some other lovely ladies, a baby shower, for my beautiful pal, Alicia. She is expecting her second child, a sweet little boy to arrive in a few short weeks!
We put together a retro-toys theme baby shower, complete with real antique planes and trains that belonged to Daddy as a boy! I must say, everything came together beautifully and turned out out adorable!

A big thanks to Jamey at The Honey Bee Press for designing the adorable invitation and coordinating pennants you'll see for Alicia's Baby Shower! She was a pleasure to work with & I'm already planning the next party printables with her! Please check out her Etsy Shop!
The pennants were designed by The Honey Bee Press & I made the accordion fans to keep with the antique theme!
Stay tuned for a DIY tutorial for these later! 

Planes, Trains & Yummy Food! 

We served an array of sandwiches and finger foods 
& decadent desserts for taking home. 
Drinks aren't complete with out fun paper straws!
Around the food table we displayed Daddy's old childhood train set!  
Delicious desserts to enjoy or take home in my handmade treat bags! Tutorial for these to come! 
People loved seeing the antique toys displayed around the food table! 

Late Night Diaper Messages!

Guests wrote fun little notes to Mommy & Daddy 
for some laughs during late night diaper changes! 

Baby Names through the Decades! 

Starting with 1940's, and all the way to our current decade, guests wrote down their guesses for the top names of each decade. The person with the most correct, won! I gave a few hints to remind guests to think of popular movies, books of the Bible, and even nursery rhymes. 
Can you guess what boy name held the top spot for 4 decades in row? 
These answers came from Social Security Administration. Did you guess the most popular names correctly?

No pink bows today, bring on the blue!!!

Alicia's first born, my God-daughter, has been dressed with girly bows since she was born, now...it's time to enjoy a new baby in lots of BLUE and NY Yankees gear too!

A sweet afternoon with friends

We enjoyed a great afternoon with Alicia's family and friends. 
Now the countdown begins for Baby Dominic's arrival! 

As always, thank you for reading my posts!
 Stay tuned for the tutorials for the accordion fans & my wax paper treat bags!  
XO, Natassja
