Woodland Baby Shower

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

I had the joy of reconnecting with an old classmate of mine who was expecting her first child! Julianne and her husband live out of the country (all the way in Dubai) so we started chatting through e-mail to gather ideas and info regarding what vision she had for the design. Julianne is an artist herself and I love the direction and inspiration she brought to the project!!

I first met with her sister and mother to discuss the details and then was lucky enough to get to see Julianne and meet with her sister again to finalize everything. Julianne wanted to use earthy, vintage colors and as many eco friendly materials as possible. She also wanted to incorporate a doily/lace border. She illustrated the woodland animals that we incorporated into the design to give it a personal touch..how adorable are they!?

Each of the invitations were enclosed in forest green string tie envelopes that featured recycled kraft paper wrap address labels that matched the invitation panels. We also enclosed an insert as Julianne was having her baby girl here in California and was not going to be able to fly back with many gifts. Julianne, it was a joy getting to see you and design for you! I'm so incredibly happy for you and wish you and your little family, all the best! Here are pictures of the design!
