Yesterday was Levi's Vintage Toy Baby Shower...it was a beautiful day, and a beautiful celebration of a little guy that is MUCH LOVED. Many family members and friends helped to make it possible, and I thank them very much for their HELP! It was all so nice what you all did and I so appreciate it!
This party was a lot of fun to make plans for. I knew right away the theme would be vintage toys...my own kids' vintage toys, retrieved from the attic and cleaned up and then a few finds from garage sale to finish out the look: mainly the letter blocks and the wooden building blocks.
Today we'll take a quick look at all the decorations and the cake, which was a beautiful work of art in itself, done by my niece, Autumn. She is a self-taught cake decorator and I think she said this was her third cake, you will never believe that when you see her cake!
Photo credits are all to my niece Katie, I handed her my camera and she went to town. She's only thirteen! I think she's got talent! (Click any photo to enlarge.)
What fun it was to see the old toys my kids played with once again!
A play table set up just for the kids...with Crayons, coloring books, and mini-play dough as well as toys and books.
Here is sweet Autumn, finishing up her masterpiece...
Can you believe this??
What an artist!!
The whole table for the cake was just so sweet....click for a better view.
My grand niece McKenzie, tried out the toys and we wouldn't know what to do at a shower without this sweet little lady...who only yesterday was a baby herself and starts kindergarten this fall!
My sister Mary made these cuppycakes with pinwheels on top! Aren't they the cutest things in the little red wagon?
Words and phrases made from the letter blocks were scattered around the tables.

Meanwhile, we're all enjoying spending time with my daughter, her son and husband...
this time with family is so precious.
