A Vintage Airplane Baby Shower {DIY events}

So, I shared some tips and a behind-the-scenes look at the vintage airplane baby shower I recently planned for our very own Nicole Schussel here. ย Now, for the finished details!vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805Once guests walked in, we had a Polaroid camera for guests to snap a photo under the DIY #hashtag banner and then tape it in a photo album with a sweet message for the mother-to-be!

Nicole absolutely loved this idea. It made for a great keepsake for the guest of honor and was super easy and fun!vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 - diy photo boothvintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805

But first, coffee ๐Ÿ˜‰

And of course, no shower is a shower without a Mimosa bar — right??ย vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 - beverage cart - mimosa bar - momosavintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 - beverage cart - mimosa bar - momosavintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 - beverage cart - mimosa bar - momosaWe had plenty of non-alc beverages – water, iced tea, lemonade and the mother-to-be’s favorite, La Croix.vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 - beverage cartThe food was all inside, but we ate brunch outside. The food was delicious!

Unfortunately, I didn’t get any photos of the table settings (ugh)ย — a huge gust of wind came right as guests started showing so we had to scramble (#gofigure) — soย you can just imagine them ๐Ÿ™‚

I used navy blue fabric from Joann’s as the table cloth with grey/white striped squares for runners. Each table had a few pieces as decor: globes, frames, planes. We didn’t use any flowers for the shower.ย vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 After guests ate, we moved inside for presents, games and dessert ๐Ÿ™‚vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 PS, how cute is Nicole (and the gifts:)??vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 And of course, we can’t forget dessert!ย vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 - dessertsFirst, we had dark chocolate-covered grahams (to go along with the Graham theme – baby boy’s name!:)

I mean…vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 - airplane chocolateWe broke the present openingย time up a bit by playing a video of Brett, the dad-to-be, answering questions about parenthood. Nicole had to guess what his answer was — mom or dad. It was really fun and Nicole guessedย most of them right, of course ๐Ÿ™‚ย vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 - newly parents video vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 We also had “Well Wishes” for guests to fill out during the presents.vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 - well wishesvintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 - well wishesAnd for favors, we went with a DIY “in-flight snacks” bar, which was reallyย fun. The guests seem to love it too, so that’s always a good thing! ๐Ÿ™‚ย vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 - in flight snack bar DIYThe idea started off with pretzels and peanuts (typical airplane food), but of course we had to add more goodies:)ย vintage airplane DIY baby shower - LocalLove805 - in flight snack bar DIYDark chocolate and yogurt covered pretzels were necessities, andย the mother-to-be absolutelyย lovesย licorice so I had to include that as well — plus it went with the color schemeย (all fromย Trader Joe’s:).
