Illustrated 1960s baby shower cards with rhymes inside

Flattr this!

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

I am just posting the rest of these 1960s baby shower cards all at once! These are vertical new baby welcome cards from that 1962 baby shower. I absolutely love the illustrations on the fronts of these cards, and the cute happy rhymes that are inside!

The mother-to-be wrote what gifts she received on the backs of these cards, which I’ve scanned also.

Here are a few of the baby shower rhymes:

“Here’s a gift for “Daddy’s girl”, or “Mommy’s pride and joy” – in either case, my best to you, and the tiny girl or boy!”

“It sure was lots of fun to choose it, hope your little one can use it.”

“Lots of special wishes are tucked in with this, too, All meant for the new baby who will come and live with you” (signed “Mother”)

“It’s something for Baby that brings with it too, the happiest wishes for Baby and you”

“Welcome little Honey-Bun, and all the best wishes too, for Mommy and for Daddy, and especially for you”

“A special gift that’s warmly sent, for the one who will star in your blessed event”.
