Yellow & Grey Colour Theme

For your little one’s celebration, styling it around colours (as opposed to a specific theme) can work beautifully and yellow and grey are two colours that I am loving together at the moment (and it seem’s alot of you are too!). Of course you can also choose this colour scheme to work in with a specific theme you have chosen as well. It’s perfect for boys, girls or a baby shower!

Make sure you also pop into our previous “You are my sunshine” theme post which has lots of yellow inspiration as well!
