Spotlight on Baby Shower Invitations

Lately I have had babies on the brain. We are expecting a little boy this Halloween! My husband and I are so excited, from the second I found out I was pregnant I was secretly crossing every toe and finger for a boy. My dream would be to have all boys, basically a starting 5 for a professional basketball team. Is that too much to ask?

In light of all the baby thinking/planning going on in my world these days, I have had the pleasure of designing a few invitations for upcoming little one showers. Here is a an example of a "hello world" unisex themed shower. The parents to be do not want to know the sex of the baby, so the hostesses asked for a gender neutral color palatte of light grey and orange. The nursery will be explorer themed, so I used a vintage globe drawing and compass to bring the theme home.

Alexandra's thoughtful hosts wanted to give her coordinating thank you notes. I used the same script font and details so guests would remember the shower when they received a thank you note from Alexandra.

My dear friend Alyce is also having a baby, exactly two months before our little guy is due. She has such a great sense of style, very West Elm neutral and understated. So her girlfriends and I decided to throw a friends only shower in the evening. We wanted the theme to be Under the Stars, complete with string light bulbs, big balloons, mason jars and fun mocktails.

I'll be designing more party signage and a Mad-libs for guests to fill out at the shower, so stay tuned. In light of all these great baby showers, I wanted to offer a discount to any of the Invitations available in my shop.  I have a Bulldog themed shower invite for those puppy loving parents, A Cute as a Button vintage airmail themed baby shower, and my popular Coco Chanel themed baby shower invitations. Seen here:
