Megan's Vintage Airplane Baby Shower

On Saturday my two sister-in-laws, my mother-in-law and I hosted a baby shower for my other sister-in-law.  The entire morning was phenomenal!  These ladies were such a talented team and a really blessed Megan and our sweet future nephew, Xander Ryan.  Is that not the cutest boy name ever?

 Xander is due November 7th but according to the baby shower game we played I guessed he'll make his debut November 14th :)

Anyway here is a picture overload with all the details we planned.  This was a blessing to help host and make this season special for Megan.  She and her husband will be phenomenal, loving parents and are already head over heels for their little man.  I can't wait to meet him!

Enjoy the pictures!

One of two food tables.  The vintage airplane theme was so unique and outside of the usual boy baby shower themes.  So in love with it all! 

My MIL got all of these vintage milk bottles for drinks and they were super charming--one of the most complimented parts of the shower.  We placed them in and around an antique crate and topped it with a whimsical toy airplane

Everything was too cute when it all came together!

Vintage books, small toys, and bright pops of red and blue really helped keep the shower playful

Look at these!  Again, my MIL made all these cake tops topped with a teeny edible airplane on each.  This whole shower just popped because of all the little details.

Just another shot of the second food table.  Plates were in a little basket, forks in a mason jar, and a second globe added more interest to the layout

The brunch menu was SOOOO easy!  You can semi-read the chalkboard menu here but the food consisted of:  mini quiche, donut hole fruit kabobs (my favorite), arugula salad with poppy seed dressing, crunchy bacon, and a full drink bar that included homemade iced coffee.  Perfection.

There were several lively games like trying to blindly guess baby items in these gifts bags... 

And writing funny or encouraging notes for Megan and Clint on diapers for those 2 a.m. changes!  

Does Rilyn not look like a little teenager in this picture?  She helped Aunt Megan open all her gifts and was such a big girl helper

Megan with a homemade gift from her Mom.  So sweet and meaningful! 

All of us Decker ladies with the mom to be.  Congratulations Megan!

For this child we prayed, and the LORD has granted us our petition that we made to him.

    1. Melissa, it was my MIL who made them! Great job right?? I really don't know how she put them together but I think she followed a bsic cake pop recipe and then put them on the wooden skewers. The little airplanes I believe were made from store bought fondant and she used a little airplane "puncher" to punch out the shape. Hope that helps!
