Vintage baby shower card scans

Flattr this!

This entry is part 1 of 10 in the series 1960s New Baby and Baby Shower Cards

Here’s a few more scans of cards from the 1962 baby shower. I’ve included the duplicate cards, so that you can see the imperfections, and that the mom-to-be wrote the gifts she received on the back of each card!

My favorite rhymes on the inside of these cards were:

“When you add this present to the baby’s things, don’t forget the wishes for happiness that it brings”.

“Best of luck to all of you, Mom and Dad and Someone New”

Her gifts included a blue blanket, sweater set, silverware, and playpen pad.

I love the cute chintzy floral and pastel themes, totally unisex, since nobody knew whether Baby would be a boy or a girl!

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.
