Bestie A's Neutral Baby Shower

Earlier this month Belle & I headed to Michigan to celebrate Bestie A's baby shower. Since baby-to-be's gender is a mystery we went with a theme centered around books, plush animals and the colors cream, gray & yellow. 

Bestie J and I fell in love with these invitations and asked the seller to recreate them with a more grayed out version of a lamb. (We weren't feeling the black sheep on a baby shower invite.)

On the tables I layered the simple floral arrangement, plush animal & board book atop a gray & white striped sheet of scrapbook paper. As an added bonus, the centerpieces are now at home in the baby's library & nursery bookshelf.

In addition, each place setting was adorned with a coordinating menu,  yellow striped straws with gray chevron flag, and yellow polka dotted favor cup filled with almond rocca.

The gift table was the centerpiece of the room. We used tall branches in urns to add height and then softened them with tissue paper pom poms.  The pottery barn kids lamb was a gift to the baby and worked perfectly as a centerpiece.

Guests were asked to write a note to baby in a storybook located on the gift table.

Before the shower began I wanted to make sure I grab some shots of the guest of honor and her family. The remainder of the afternoon was spent lunching and watching A open a host of precious baby goodies.

It is hard to believe in a few short weeks lil Baby P, as we refer to him/her around the B house, will be here. I can not wait to hold you in my arms. And for the record, Thea Amelia says, "Baby Girl"!!
