On the weekend I hosted a baby shower for my sister - I chose grey and yellow for the theme as we don't know if it's a boy or a girl yet. (We like the surprise).
Unfortunately I didn't get any photos of the table all set out or of me and my sister together. It seems that once the event started I was too busy enjoying it to remember my camera.
Anyway here are some of me preparing.
We had bottled water with the labels covered by grey paper with a yellow punched circle.
I also made the hanging circles using a large punch and simply sewed them together at random intervals.
I found yellow and grey straws and made traditional lemonade
A lemon and sour cream cake with cute little bunting (that's a bit hard to see)
This was the present table.
I happened to find a perfect pack of singlets with grey and yellow for the 'clothes line'.
I made grey and yellow bunting.
This is going to hang in the babies room (so are the hanging circles)
I first saw this on Sewliberated and have wanted to do it ever since.
This was the perfect excuse.
We had a great day and I had heaps of fun preparing all the little details. Did you notice the piece of farm equipment?? Apparently it is a foot valve, that goes over the end of a pipe, to stop stubble & rubbish from getting into the pump. I think it makes a great drink dispenser stand. I'm not allowed to keep it so I told the farmer that is fine, as long as he isn't using it when I want to have a party. We can share it!!
Happy Baby Shower Jen - feel free to have the baby anytime now.
