Beckham's Baby Shower - Grey, Yellow & White Chevron

It's official... I'm throwing my sister Havilah, her last baby shower! 

Beckham Benjamin is her fourth and final boy. 

Havilah was made to have boys. 
She's strong, adventurous and full of energy. 
She's raising God-fearing, confident, courageous, men of honor.  
Watch out ladies! 

I had SO much fun planning this party. 
The idea for her Baby Shower came from this diaper bag. 

I loved the grey and white color theme, with a hint of yellow. 

So... off to planning and pinning. 
Hope you like the finished product!

The Giving Tree 
Once inside, a 'Giving Tree' was placed by the door.  
As with showers, we organized a group gift 
and I wanted to make it different and special. 
I have the idea of creating a giving tree.
Thanks to Margarita Kulaga!
She sells them and you can contact her HERE. 
A beautiful tree to place special notes and pin money on. 

It was very charming and thanks to all our generous friends,
the tree was full by the end of the party.
Thanks to Party Monkey for providing the templets for the cards!

To add some fun personalized decor to the space,
we made some 'Photo Banners' to hang around the house.
We took Ric Rac ribbon, photos and close pins
and made these adorable banners! 



The Drink Station 


We were able to use these beautiful drink dispensers, thanks Mom!
I wrapped ribbon around them
and added labels to match the theme. 


Drinks were served in mason jars, covered with cupcake liners.
They were completed with grey and white straws for a whimsical flare!
Thanks Pinterest! 
Fresh yellow roses, paper baby confetti and
handmade tableclothes gave the finishing touches!  
The silver antique cups were my Grandmothers.
I filled them with personal lemonade packets,
for ladies to add to their water bottles. 
The Food Table  



Brunch food was provided as the shower was held late morning.
The food was AMAZING and DELISH!
Thanks to Stephanie Brubaker, Tracy Lindquist,
 Jeni Hosel and Suzie Anfuso for making all the goodies. 



Glass Vases were filled with yellow, silver and white candies. 
 
An antique sliver piggy bank
which was my Father's as a baby. 
The Cake 
Thanks Beth's Cakes for providing this adorable cake!
Beth is a local cake maker and she's truly gifted.  
She even created the Chevron print to go with the theme! 

Havilah LOVED the cake! 
The inside was a Chocolate Chip Cake with a Buttercream Frosting.
It truly tasted like a Chocolate Chip Cookie! 
Let the Party Begin!
