Vintage Baby Shower Favors

Vintage baby shower cookies

There are so many adorable baby shower themes out there right now.  All you have to do is follow Hostess with the Mostess and you'll be completely overwhelmed with ideas!  So, I love it when clients contact me with a specific theme in mind and then we can brainstorm cookie ideas together.  That's what happened when this client asked for cookie favors for an "Etsy" themed baby shower.

The customer wanted something very rustic, vintage, and crafty for the favors.  She knew the Mom-to-be was planning to decorate the nursery in a baby farm animal theme, so we combined those two ideas into these cookies!

The inspiration for the cookies came from these stickers on Etsy.  It was an absolutely adorable design and was easy to modify the jungle animals into ones that belong on a farm!

This project was fun for me because I got to play with an airbrush for the first time.  Thanks for letting me borrow yours, Steph!  I think I might need to invest in one of these in the future :)

And, as promised, I made sure that I left myself LOTS of time to take photos!

It's always tough for me to shoot in daylight since I work full time during the day, but I'm really making the effort to allow time for me to run home on my lunch break to shoot.  I really think it makes all the difference!

My new favorite props are the piece of burlap that I found in the Michael's scrapbooking section and this wicker bread basket that I had laying around the house.

I heard that these were a hit at the baby shower.  Congratulations Ashley and Jared on your new baby boy!
