Pink & Grey Chevron Baby Shower

My friend Jessica is pregnant with her first baby!  I was honored to host her baby shower, along with Ashley & Kerri.  Jessica is having a little girl so the theme of the shower was pink and grey chevron.



Pink & Grey Chevron invitations available here

Oh course I found an excuse to use the chalkboard.  I dressed it up the a pink and silver glitter pinwheel

 Baby Girl Wreath - Ashley and I whipped this little cutie up the night before the shower.  Pretty good for last minute planning!


 


Butterfly mobile - Instead of attaching it to a ring I tied each string directly onto the chandelier


DIY Glitter chevron artwork.  It turned out amazing.  Tutorial here!


 I went a little crazy with the glitter and started covering EVERYTHING in sparkles, including my husband




Jessica is a true fashionista so we setup a headband decorating station for each guest to create a headband for the baby.  She is going to be one stylish infant!




The popcorn bar was a hit!



Chevron table runner available here

 
Instead of my signature mustache straw, I made these heart straws.  I love them so much so I decided to add them to my Etsy shop

    1. We bought a bunch of shades of pink so everyone could pick their perfect color. I think the color in the photo is Cascade Cool.

    1. The glitter ducks were super easy! I bought cheap plastic ducks in the baby shower section at the craft store, covered them in Mod Podge, and then sprinkled glitter all over. I used the super fine Martha Stewart glitter from Michael's.

  5. I love your use of color. Pink has always been a favorite color of baby shower ideas for girls
    But your use of the color doesn’t make it over the top. Great Job!
