Yellow and grey. How much to I love this fresh, sophisticated palette? I've been waiting for an opportunity to use it and my dear friend Jo-Ann's baby shower was the perfect choice. My partner in party planning crime, Ryam, along with hostess extraordinaire, Loren and I pulled this intimate gathering together on a limited budget and a short timeframe. Read on for more details about how we did it. Enjoy!
Our dessert table - very pared down. We let fabrics, texture and pattern along with a few stand out sweets make a statement. The sweet lacy backdrops were drapery panels found for a steal at Ikea and our charcoal and white houndstooth runner was a just some pretty cotton yardage from Jo-ann's.
The centerpiece of our table.
Pewter roses and lemon yellow dots.
"C" is for baby Cash
Cookies play double duty as cupcake toppers.
Lemon cream cheese baby cakes.
Vintage babydoll carriage.
Hand-dipped vanilla meringues.
Sunny lemon drops
Lacy caramel corn cones.
Since we were having a smaller gathering of only sixteen guests, Ryam had the great suggestion that we set a long banquet table instead of separate rounds. We laid out some inexpensive white bedding sheets from Ikea as table cloths and layered it with sweet yellow and white polka dot yardage from Jo-ann's as an inexpensive, no-sew runner. More easy breezy sheers suspended from the pergola.
Hand painted flower pots and fresh flowers.
Dollar Store plates and glassware.
