Yellow and Grey

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.

  2. That looks awesome! I love the yellow & grey combination. And the flower vases on the wall is really neat, I'm going to have to remember that one!


Thanks so much for taking the time to 'chat' with me!
