A Velveteen Rabbit Baby Shower

Like every child of the 90s, I was raised on a few classic children’s books, one of them being The Velveteen Rabbit.  And so, when I saw this vintage-filled shower, complete with Velveteen Rabbit theme, I was immediately struck with nostalgia and the desire for a 28th birthday redo, complete with vintage bunny paraphernalia.  Prepare yourself for a lovely walk down memory lane …

From the party planner, Kritseen:  “I wanted to play up the textural elements from the book — we used rich, rustic materials such as burlap, cotton, velvets and wood.  Vintage spools of thread and small jars of buttons were placed throughout the tablescapes.  The floral arrangements were designed in vintage depression glass, birch wrapped vases and mason jars.  The bright colors were phenomenal – they popped against all of the natural elements.  Fujiko’s Flowers handmade the whimsical doily chandelier than hung over the guest of honor’s table as well as the napkins from the fabric I selected from Joann Fabric.  I fell in love with the napkin’s print as soon as I saw it!”

“The cake by CAKEGoodness was breathtaking – the rabbit detail was picked up from the rabbit glassware from Anthropologie.  I set the cake atop a wooden box draped with velveteen fabric.”

Burlap Invitation DIY

As for the lovely invitations, each invite was handmade by Kristeen.  To create the look, she spray-mounted thick card stock onto burlap from Joann’s Fabric and sewed a small button at the top.
