9 Vintage Baby Shower Cards from the 1960s

9 Vintage Baby Shower Cards from the 1960s
This entry is part 2 of 10 in the series 1960s New Baby and Baby Shower Cards

At this point in scanning this collection of baby shower cards from 1962, my eyes were about to cross. This expectant mother must have had a heck of a party in the heat of that August of 1962! This was the baby shower for her first child, and I think it was the first grandchild on either side. It’s always extra special to be first (speaking as the eldest child). Here are 9 different vintage baby shower cards from 1962. I love the gentle, cute, illustrations… and, ofcourse, the rhymes inside!

Gifts that the expectant mother received included: a potty chair, receiving blankets, comforter and pillow, bath and blanket, and sleeping bags (I’m assuming swaddle bags for baby to sleep in).

A card like I scanned earlier, a baby on a cloud.

I know that at the time, most of this family was working class. They were Catholics and in a part of the city of St. Louis that was close to factories.

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
