This is what Valerie said about planning the party– “I was asked to style a gender neutral baby shower for a Momma-to-be, with the shower date planned for mid-February. Knowing that this is typically just about the WORST weather month of the year in frigid Chicago, we decided to brighten up with the mood with the fun and always cheerful “You Are My Sunshine” theme. It’s gender neutral, cheerful and modern. So fun. As for colors, well…there’s just something neat about yellow and gray together. It’s such a fun, cheerful, modern combination. That was our starting point. The guests were treated to a lovely catered lunch, lemonade , champagne with fresh berries and a table full of delicious sweet treats. It was a lovely, “SUNNY” celebration!”

    Thank you so much for this feature. This party was so much fun styling. I am a bit partial to yellow and gray (as evident from my company logo). This celebration was fun and modern while still elegant and feminine. A great “sunny” way to welcome a new life into this world.
    Thanks again.

    […] This is a fun, gender-neutral theme that is as refreshing as it is flexible. Yellow is recommended in light of the sun, but a spring-time theme can also be achieved with bright lemony yellow, whereas an autumnal party can be done with a deeper, orange hue. Zig-zags are a popular pattern this year, and can be used in paper goods, table cloth, ribbon, and anything else you can find in it! Gray goes well with the yellow; make sure to match the two colors’ intensities. View pictures here. […]
