For some reason I am in love with all things vintage right now, and baby showers are no exception. I was pleased to find that there are many resources available to help you throw the perfect classic event! YAY!
Thrift stores could be a great place to start as far as tableware like classic drink pitchers and table linens are concerned. Some are in great condition! And most department stores carry lots of 'Shabby Chic' designs and decor that would be fitting here as well.
Search around for vintage baby shower invites and gift-tags for the game prizes.
Light fare would work well for the menu, but make sure to incorporate vintage staples such as petit fours, deviled eggs etc.
Contact your local bakery to see if they can make cookies with edible vintage images on them for favors (see my 'So Very Vintage' post for pics). Not only is this a sweet way to welcome baby, but the blast from the past setting is sure to be a hit with guests!
