My Top 5 Vintage Baby Carriage Invitation Picks

One of the things I've been looking at recently are baby shower invitations.

I like those with an old fashioned feel. I find them charming, nostalgic and, depending on the design, whimsical even.

These are some vintage baby carriage invitations for baby showers (or they could be adapted for bith announcements too with a bit of changing of the wording) that I thought were especially cute and sweet.

Vintage Brown Baby Carriage Baby Shower 5x7 Paper Invitation CardWith this first one I chose to show it on one of the other "paper shapes" available to give it this cute, scalloped edging. I just like it better that way, because I think it adds more charm to it. But you can choose the regular, simple rectangle shape, or one of the other options as well, such as rounded corners.

The design is of an old fashioned style, wicker, baby carriage illustration in brown, on a lightly striped background. There are actually blue and pink versions of this invitation available as well if you wanted something more gender specific. There are chalkboard style versions of it as well.


This next design is rather sweet with it's floral background, and striped with lace border, then a black and white illustration of an old baby buggy placed on top. It has a sort of scrapbook, collage sort of feel I suppose.

A pretty yellow banner, floating across a fancy, scrollwork style baby carriage, declares "It's a Baby Shower!" Although the carriage and banner, and a scalloped background, give it an old fashioned feel, the gray background and font choice adds a bit of a modern feel to this invitation too.

I think this next choice is very fun. It is made to look like an old admission ticket to something like a carnival or such, but instead it's a ticked to the charming fun of celebrating a dear friend's baby shower. It's unusual size and look is sure to grab attention and get a smile. Not only is a baby carriage featured on the faux antiqued paper, but parasols and pointing hands (like old fashioned adverts used to have) adorn it as well with cool old fashioned typefaces too.
The designer of this also has a chalkboard style version available as well.

And for my top favorite! This is designed by the same person who did the ticket style invitation up above. It has a similar antiqued feel. I think it is even more whimsical and quirky though.
A very fancy banner sits just behind the cute baby carriage with the words "You Are Invited" on it. 
Two hands point at the name of the honored guest that the event is being held for. Below that an illustration of a pocket watch draws attention to the stated date and time of the party.
