A Vintage-Inspired Baby Shower with a Sewing Theme by Darling and Daisy

You can really tell when an occasion was planned with love! And that is clearly the case with this oh-so-adorable baby shower full of homemade and handmade details with a sewing and accessories theme found via Darling and Daisy. Not only did three family generations help blog owner Mercedes and her sis, mom-to-be Natalie, in every aspect of the decorating, baking, cooking, and assembling, but the men pitched in, too! Talk about a supportive and super-talented clan! There’s just so much to swoon over (and for you to be inspired by) in this delightful shower. So get ready to ‘oohhh’ and ‘ahhhh’ a whole lot!

A Cute and Quaint Sewing-themed Sweets Table

The minute we surveyed the lovely photos, we knew that this dessert table was not only a showcase of sweet treats but a charmingly themed one as well! Just note these darling elements described by Mercedes:

  1. a quaint dresser (a $15 find at a garage sale!) re-painted by the daddy-to-be and used as the display table
  2. pastel-colored crocheted doilies dressing up fabric-covered embroidery hoops, courtesy of Natalie’s mother-in-law
  3. giant yarn-wrapped and button-trimmed letters spelling out the baby’s name, Ellia
  4. the cutest spool-shaped treats Mercedes made from chocolate cake, chocolate ganache, and candy coating
  5. cherry cheesecakes that looked like scrumptious pies, decorated with button bunting
  6. cherry pie pops baked from their grandma’s recipe, and displayed in a drawer lined with more buttons
  7. yarn balls of different colors and sizes (hand-rolled by different family members, including some uncles!) used as sweet decorative accents
  8. home-made macarons dipped in gold glitter and crunchy cream-filled canolli (this is an Italian family, after all!)
  9. 2 vintage sewing machines, owned by Mercedes and the baby-to-be’s other grandma

A Pretty Activity Table and Cute Favors

Artistic and crafty at heart, this family clearly had to have something hands-on for guests to enjoy at this shower! As Mercedes reveals: “ ‘Ellia’s Homemade Accessories’ table was a spot to make a special gift for Ellia. There were clips/headbands, tons of flowers, gems, and bows for the guests to sew/glue together a hair accessory. Everyone hung their masterpieces with a gift tag for Ellia attached.

And as a fitting take-home treat from this wonderful celebration, each guest received a little packet of shortbread cookies shaped like the most darling buttons. We give you one guess who baked these cuties: Mercedes and Natalie!

Huge thanks to the sisters and their loving family for such a heartwarming party scene. If you found this adorable baby shower inspiring, do drop by Darling and Daisy for even more of the same!


  1. Very cute! And lots of ideas for a Lalaloopsy party too!

    • So glad you like it, Rose Marie! We were totally charmed with the vintage sewing notions and adorable buttons used as design elements!
