Vintage School Baby Shower

One of my dear friends was expecting a sweet little baby girl soon but she didn't want to do a big shower since she already has a child, but I couldn't resist doing SOMETHING! So we decided that a nice little lunch with some close friends would do.

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE themed invitations and these ones from Invitation To Mars were just too cute to pass up and perfect for the theme!

How cute are these details!?!

For the table centerpiece I kept it simple with a vintage pattern table runner, basket of apples, mini chalk board, baby blocks and flash cards.

We had a light lunch served in the traditional brown lunch sacks, but I wanted to dress them up a bit. So I folded a doily over the top and tied them shut with a cute little ribbon to give them kind of a shabby chic look.

Inside the lunch sacks was a chicken salad croissant sandwich, bag of chips, container of leafy salad with a wooden fork, and a small fruit cup with alphabet cookies. Yum Yum!

And refreshments of course...

We had just a simple little dessert bar to keep it light with few treats. The backdrop was a vintage window I had and covered the glass with different vintage styled paper patterns to give it some color. Then I hung some flash cards with clothes pins for bunting. The table was accented with stacks of books, apples, and more baby blocks and flash cards.

I tried based the main treats off of what I used to have in my sack lunches growing up: Pb & j sandwich, an apple, usually some cookies or chips, and a carton of milk - gotta love themes! So here is what I came up with:
Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

Cookie and Milk Parfaits

 and Mini Apple Pies

That is our little baby shower lunch, SUPER budget friendly!
