Sweet Baby Girl Shower- Yellow/Grey/Pink

My sister-in-law's niece and her hubby (Holly and James) are expecting their first baby this month. In January her mom contacted me to help with decor for her baby shower. I was so excited to be a part of her day. We see each other at family functions often and they've always treated my daughter so well, doting on her like a princess. I was happy to see her family grow.

Holly had her nursery painted yellow and grey, such a modern pallet and now that I've done the party I see grey and yellow together all the time. Funny how that happens! Her mom wanted to add a touch of pink to make it a bit "girly". She brought me some napkin samples to match colors and I so the fun began!

The party was being held in their home association's clubhouse.  Bright pops of color are what this party called for. Everyone was so excited to celebrate this sweet baby girl and to "shower" their family with things they'll need, sprinkled with a few luxury items.

Family members created colorful poms to hang next to the "Sweet Baby Girl" banner over the gift table
The little onesie was held on with mini clothes pins

For a beautiful keepsake, guests filled out "Wishes for Baby" cards. (click to enlarge)

So proud of Holly's family. These crafty ladies put together 50+ onesies and booties for favors. I cut them out and they assembled!

Party favors on display at each table. I love when favors are used as part of the decor.
Water bottle labels for the occasion. Perfect for guests to take on their drive home or as an alternative to lemonade/ice tea.

All the napkins/utensils were all neatly contained in a cute holder created from card stock wrapped with pink tulle.
The food was from a favorite BBQ place and so delicious!
Simple Gerbera Daisies were prefectly sweet!
Yellow and Pink drinks matched the decor.
