On Saturday I threw a baby shower for my dear sister-in-law who is expecting a baby girl at the end of August. I wanted to share a few "Salvaged" ideas that I used for the shower. For the Hors d'Oeuvres table I had two vintage tablecloths: one from an estate sale and the other was given to me by my mother-in-law. Lots of vintage trays and cake stands for the food. Sparkling raspberry lemonade and iced coffee were served from vintage pitchers. The house was decorated in garden rose bouquets displayed in recycled glass jars. Prizes for the games were bottles of bubble bath made from clear wine bottles that I sterilized, filled with bubble bath and made labels for. I placed these in a metal wash basin, so they looked like bottles of champagne. (The bubble bath idea is thanks to my fabulous former boss, Monique!) It turned out really great!
