Celebrate the new mother-to-be with a midmorning brunch that is simple, sunny and oh-so-chic.

    Accent With Color

    Opt for a yellow and white theme, which works equally well for mothers expecting a little girl or boy and those who don't know which they'll have. The warm yellow also gives the whole affair a sunny disposition. Set the table with basic white linens and dishes — you don't need anything fancy for a brunch-time shower. For a centerpiece that's cheerful yet budget-friendly, purchase a bouquet of yellow flowers, then distribute a stem or two into multiple tall, clear vessels. Use vases and a mix of recycled jars with their labels removed. Bands of yellow and white scrapbook paper and a few lengths of yellow ribbon add the finishing touches.

    Repurpose for Vintage Appeal

    Jelly jar glasses and a vintage-looking water bottle give the table some country-casual charm. A patterned napkin tied around your water vessels adds color and will catch any beading on hot days.

    Dress Up the Drinks

    Make your mom-to-be's shower a personal affair. Mark guests' places at the table with drink-stirrer nametags. Dress the table up with fun and affordable yellow details: Yellow and white cocktail napkins and slices of fresh lemon for each glass add color to the place settings.

    Get Personal

    To make your own baby shower drink stirrers, simply cut wooden skewers down to size and tie on a white paper hang tag with a small length of yellow ribbon. Decorate with baby-inspired images such as a pair of safety pins.

    Prep Food the Night Before

    For a midday event, keep things simple with easy, make-ahead dishes like a simple quiche that can be served at room temperature and a potato dish that can be made ahead and reheated as guests arrive. Round the meal out with a fresh fruit or vegetable salad that can be made ahead in the morning and then dressed just before you serve. Desserts can follow your sunny theme: Think lemon-flavored candies and baked goods. For a shortcut, dress up a box mix for lemon bars by adding fresh lemon zest to the lemon mixture and topping them with a dusting of confectioners' sugar after they've cooled — your guests will think they're homemade.

    Use Simple Embellishments

    Simple white linen napkins are dressed up with yellow and white polka dot grosgrain ribbon. A safety pin embellishment pulls together the theme and adds a touch of whimsy.
