baby boy blue and white snowman baby announcement shower invitation holiday winter christmas

I just saw some pictures of the sweetest vintage frosty baby shower theme and no..the decorations or theme of the party didn't have anything to do with Frosty the Snowman as you will see if you visit Meg Kat's blog as I did.

The pictures of old-fashioned floral arrangements include a combination of ivory white and red roses and hand-glittered pine boughs that are both elegant, "frosty" and right out of days gone by. The decorations are sentimental by design but there's a twist; handmade, pleated signs that were made from pages from old books that are edged with yet MORE glitter and a sweet center medallion that says "BABY"!

The savvy crafter who made the centerpieces also created a matching banner that repeats the theme of the centerpieces as well as some more of the fluffy, white coffee filter balls (I have seen lots of these at showers lately) suspended over the snack table.

This vintage frosty baby shower theme is filled with affordable ideas for a holiday celebration and I can't wait to try making some of the baby shower decorations out of the pages of some old books myself. These pictures were posted just in time because I was about to throw the vintage books away (less some of the pictures that I saved) because the pages were coming loose from their bindings and the covers were not in good shape. But don't wait on me; go over to Meg Kat's blog and see the pictures for yourself!
