You are invited!
Today’s Simply Parties theme is a Vintage Little Man Baby shower. With tricycles and mustaches, this party is a simple way to celebrate the arrival of a special “Little Man”!
We took inspiration from an invitation we found online (but cost $8 PER INVITE!) and re-created it, but added in the mustache and our own fonts and tricycle. Want a FREE printable version for your own party? I made you all a simple invite to match the Little Man theme!
We also made inserts to match the invitations for the baby registry info
On the front door, we hung a name banner for Baby Ryder. This was easy to make by printing the letters (The font I used was called Circus) then cutting around them, punching holes in the tops and bottoms of each letter and threading them with twine. A simple but great way to personalize the shower!
We decorated simply, using hanging Tissue Pom Balls and tissue accordian rounds hanging over the main food table.
Rather than a tablecloth, a masculine striped fabric in the party theme colors was used as a simple table runner (and that fabric has since been turned into a small quilt for the baby!)
We bought wooden crates from JoAnns (with 50-percent off coupons) and stained them dark to use as little pedestals for some of the food.
I made printable cards that looked a little like the invite to name each food on the table
And we hung handmade Little Man onesies (in different sizes, make sure the mama gets a variety!) on clothesline behind the food table with mustaches, ties and the letter R (baby’s name is Ryder).
- A parfait bar with yogurt, fruit and granola
- Bacon on a stick (bacon threaded onto skewers then baked) was a big hit!
- Broccoli ham quiche muffins
- Assorted breakfast muffins
- Sticky bun bread (I used THIS recipe)
And we had boxed chocolate milk as well
Of course you need a little dessert, and we had a cute cupcake display filled with cupcakes made and decorated by my sister in law
It made for the perfect little spread, and it was all delicious.
