Pink, Grey, and Glitter Shower

{Invitation Design}

Pink, Grey, and Glitter...Oh My!

Some family members and I hosted a baby shower for my expecting sister-in-law at the beginning of this month. We wanted it to have a soft and feminine feel without being too baby-ish. Instead of filling the space with bottles and binkies, we chose to fill it with florals and glitter. 
I had SO much fun messing around with paints again! I can't wait to get into them again!


We used mason jars for the centerpieces. We spray painted the bottoms in gold {which I don't think we necessarily had to do} and then covered the bottom in glue, then poured on the glitter! {You better believe that there will be glitter all over my mother-in-law's house for weeks to come!} The jars were filled with pink gerbera daisies and white mini roses from our local Whole Foods. {One of my favorite places to get flowers.}

We purchased scrapbook paper in different patterns and colors {grey + pink}  from Michael's and used it for placemats as well as confetti and a festive garland! {We had some left over and made it into a necklace for the mommy-to-be}

{Confetti + Straws with flags}


We started off with grey napkins from Ikea and added a strip of pink burlap, layered with a piece of gold polka dotted scrapbook paper, and topped off with a strand of gold sequins! {All hot glued together...ouch!}

We purchased these super cute glass bottles from Ikea. {Everyone was asking where they were from.} I used a gold sharpie to label them. Which didn't really work that well, I probably needed some kind of paint marker.
We purchased the grey + white striped straws from Etsy and then I added the custom flags. The water bottle labels were designed to match the rest of the shower with water color details.

The favors were made by the mommy-to-be's sister. They are reused baby food jars! {How appropriate!} She made both Vanilla and Sage & Citrus. She topped them with fabrics that matched the shower and a little bit of natural twine. I designed the labels to match the rest of the shower! {They look very cute sitting on my kitchen windowsill at the moment!}
