Precious Cargo Themed Baby Shower

precious-cargo-travel-baby-shower-themeThis beautiful vintage Precious Cargo Themed Baby Shower by  Simple Elegance Melbourne is such a lovely and unique baby shower theme! It symbolizes the journey to motherhood and the precious cargo on the way, which is so adorable and clever! We love all of the darling vintage details and pretty flowers. What a truly beautiful and unique way to shower the mum-to-be!

Set outdoors, the event space has a rustic garden feel that was pretty and feminine. Guests were ushered in to sign up at the sign in table where they left advice for the mum-to-be on cute little postcards and mini letter paper. How sweet! We all know that being a new mom is overwhelming, so this was such a sweet idea! This was then clipped onto the frame to be kept by the new mom! Staying with the travel theme, the vintage-style table was adorned with a cute map pennant banner. Just perfect!
