Old World Travel Themed Baby Shower

Old World Travel Themed Baby Shower

The baby's nursery, featuring vintage maps and hot air balloons, provided the inspiration for the design of this old world travel themed baby shower created by Southern Fete. A perfect set of postcards from Tuesday Morning and fantastic vintage map wrapping paper from Paper and Present really set the stage for the decor. The wrapping paper was perfect for bunting, big and small, from the fireplace flags, to the mini version on the hot air balloons they crafted out of paper lanterns. They came out so well that the mom-to-be plans to incorporate them into the nursery! Once they found the invitation from Poppy Designs, the rest all came together perfectly. Stop by the full gallery to see all of the photos captured by Hannah Herpin Creative.
