Each centerpiece was a vase turned upside down, a plate, cheese, dome, confetti, and more baby pictures,
The bigger cloches had vintage ivy planters with pictures and baubles.
A baby tooth holder opened up, flowers, ribbon... similar centerpieces for each table
over all view of the food table...I used the vintage planters to hold silverware and other items.
The diaper cake base is a Wilton cake base, raised up with a milk glass vase. It made it really stand out on the gift table.

A couple of years ago at school, I volunteered to give a shower, since then I guess I've been unofficially elected to do them all, so always trying to come up with a new decor, using things I have on hand, so we can spend money on the food and presents!  This baby shower just happens to be for my daughter-in-law, who teaches at my school!! I used milk glass for everything, and pictures of her and my son as babies, cloches- big and small, It was immediatly after school in the library and not as much time as I would like to have for decorating, but that probly is a good thing... I have quite a collection of the vintage baby planters; they look adorable as centerpieces and for holding things.  I love decorating for events and don't y'all enjoy seeing peoples faces when you use something in a way they weren't expecting?
