Baby Shower Cards from 1962
These baby shower cards are from a party held on August 14, 1962 in what was then a working middle class neighborhood of St. Louis, MO… I got lucky, the shower invitation was in the box! It was thrown at the mother’s home, by her mom.
“A Baby Shower is on the way, So please jot down the time and day.”
It was held at 7:30pm, presumably after dinner and when the weather would be getting more comfortably cool. I was able to do a little research and find out that August 14, 1962 was a Tuesday.
This expectant mother was quite organized, and wrote what gifts she received on the back of each card. I can’t wait to post the cute new baby celebration cards that her guests gave her. It looks like quite a large party (unless she just saved the invitation from one shower, and had a few as was common).
