Baby Shower Invites
Handmade Art / Handmade Design
I had the pleasure of making baby shower invites for a dear friend of mine and I couldn’t be more excited about how they turned out. My other good friend was throwing the shower, and while I could not be in attendance, I was so happy to get to make the invites and a few accessories for the event. My friend came to me with the woodland theme idea and sent a few examples, to which I quickly hit the ground running because I had too many ideas running through my head about how to make these amazing.
She wanted them to be cute and baby shower-ish but also have a warmth and sophisticated class to them. I think found a happy medium and am so happy with how they turned out. She also wanted a few accessories to match the invites that could be displayed at the abby shower. I created place cards/food cards and cupcake toppers. These were the perfect addition to an adorable baby shower.
In addition, I designed food cards and/or place cards and cupcake toppers for the baby shower.
We recently bought a cabin in Big Bear, CA and I have been busy decorating. We got the place furnished and it needed a lot of help, from the linens, to the beds, to the decor. It was fun to throw away and donate all the stuff we didn’t find a purpose for and buy all new stuff. In addition to buying new stuff though, we had some fun repurposing a few things.
So, there were all of these dead taxidermy animals on the walls and while I would never repurpose dead animal (is that even possible?), I did want to repurpose a lot the amazing wood these things were mounted on. I love typography and knew I had to do a hand painted sign for our new space. This is what I came up with. Adventure always awaits when you are in the woods at the cabin!
When my husband’s cousins came to me and asked me to design her wedding invites, we were on the same page right from the start. Her and her fiancé are very earthy, free spirited people so I had an idea of what was about to transpire, but I never imagined they would turn out this amazing!
From the really nice, thick, kraft colored, card stock to the little feather and arrow details, this invite is the perfect example of knowing what my client wants and taking them in the right direction.
Sarah knew where they were getting married, how the day would look and probably every other detail besides the most important thing, the invites! She needed help in deciding how they wanted them to look. We perused the internet for ideas and after narrowing down the likes and dislikes we settled on the perfect balance of airy and earthy.
I hope you like them just as much as I did making them for her.
Bridal Shower Invites
My best friend had me create her wedding invites and we had such a fun time collaborating that when she came to me and said her sister was getting married, I knew I had to design these for her. She was planning her wedding in her parents backyard, up north in MN and wanted a woodsy, cabin like invite. She came to me with some ideas and I was off and running.
The earthy tones and intimate design reflect exactly how her wedding was. It was a special, one of a kind (“Kind” just happens to be her maiden name) event that took place in a most special location with only close friends and family. She was so pleased with these, as I hope you think so too!
I got the honor of throwing a bridal shower for my cousin on June 6 but the planning for it started months before that and so did creating these one of a kind bird cage invites. Getting married is such a special occasion and so are all the little events leading up to it. I knew her shower had to be special and delicate and what better way than with birds and bird cages?
From the invite to the thank you and the recipe card, the whole package was perfectly complimentary to her special day. To create these invites, I had looked all over the internet for some unique elements and what bridal shower stuff was trending at the time. A big thing at the time, in addition to birds and bird cages, were recipe cards for the bride, where everyone would write down their favorite recipe and the give it to the bride for her shower.
She was so surprised by these invites and uses her recipes on the regular! There are just too many possibilities when designing something so fun!
