ok so i just did a baby shower cake for a vintage shower.. they used a taupe coloring but you can do blk/whi easy! they took old kiddie books from like thrift stores and cut the pages into flags and made a banner to go round the room. It was soo cute! they wanted daisies on the cake so I did muted colors in taupes and browns to match. You could use the carraige cutter and do a vintage blk/white with that and do cutout flowers layered in blk/white... I hope I'm making sense... I can totally picture everything in my head for you! lol!! This will be really cute! Have fun!

Thanks Kim! I think we are now going to add some muted vintage type colors into things to make it easier. I really liked the banner idea using book pages!

You are going to have so much fun doing this! the shower I did the cake for used baby roses in pinks and other flowers in whites to give it that vintage look along with the muted colors. Can't wait to see how you do the cake! icon_smile.gif
