easy adventure/travel themed baby shower decorations

You know, I can say "easy", because I have a lot of stuff hanging around my house, waiting to be used at times like these!
Tablecloths from the same son and dil's wedding whose baby shower this is, burlap runners I've had forever, vintage cameras, old children's readers, and vintage glass luncheon plates, all from my many accidental collections.  The circles are punched from map scraps left from making the flag bunting.

Trail mix party favors in vintage suitcases--you can guess where those came from . . . yes, the globe is mine, too!

Giant rosettes: the centers are dictionary page rosettes saved from a previous baby shower, the back rosettes are atlas pages from the same atlas as the bunting.  DIY for the flag bunting is HERE.

The baby's breath are in glass baby bottle vases with jute wrapped at the top, with blue tinted water.

These map backed, framed letters were at the baby shower, but now you can see them in the baby's nursery.  The old radio was my uncle's, so Fenn's great-great uncle.

Framed, computer printed "You Are Our Greatest Adventure", with map backing--this was also at the shower, it and the atlas buntings are now in baby's room.  I wish I could remember where I found this print, it was free online--if it looks familiar, let me know.

Recognize the rosesttes?  Now they hang above the changing table.  I had no idea all these decorations would end up in his room, but let me tell you, it makes their creation even more gratifying to see them there!

  3. Truly adorable adventure/travel themed baby shower decorations! I loved the table runner a lot. It was decorated perfectly. At the domestic Los Angeles event venues I will also host travel themed bachelorette party. Do you have fun game ideas too?
