My dear friend Cari is pregnant with her second baby and our friend Bonnie wanted to throw her a grand baby shower. I was thrilled to get to create the invitations and printed items for the big day.
The color scheme was gold with lots of different purples and we were going with a vintage fairytale theme. I had so much fun creating these!!
Using card stock from Paper Source in their Plum color, I created simple pocketfolds that displayed the invitation and held the two inserts. I layered a metallic gold, vine-y ribbon on top of some purple satin ribbon and a couple pieces of card stock to hold the pocketfold closed. Both ribbons were purchased at JoAnn's.
I backed the invitation with a mat using Stardream Antique Gold paper, also from Paper Source. I had everything printed at my local Office Depot. I have been really happy with the print quality from my local store.
The two inserts:
This time I didn't want to do address labels, so I printed addresses directly onto the Antique Gold envelopes with my laser printer.
At the shower, a simple welcome sign sat on an easel at the doorway.
Bonnie stained a couple dozen onesies and set up a decorating station. It was so fun!
Here's the onesie I decorated; my first time "painting" with a bleach pen!
I printed out a few quotes from famous fairytales or authors that we framed and displayed on the tables.
A "wishes for baby" card was at each place setting and Bonnie collected them to be made into a book for Cari.
This shower was such a treat to work on! I'm working on publishing a more detailed post about the party itself on Mama Say What?! I'll add the link here once it's up.
