Woodland Baby Shower

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!

Halloween: Alice In Wonderland Style, Part 2

Over a year ago, I got the chance to design birthday invitations and accessories for an adorable set of twins.  During that event, a guest at that party (Melanie) noticed my work and asked or my info so she could get in contact with me about her daughter's 8th birthday.  Soon after, we met and realized she actually lived on my same street!  As we spoke, she told me that her daughter, Maggi, was born on October 27th and  they had always had a Halloween inspired party for her but this year she wanted to put a twist on it.  I had just seen an Alice in Wonderland inspired paper line that had just hit the stores and when I showed the paper to Melanie she fell in love with the idea of using the paper as our inspiration and turning Maggi's party into a Alice in Wonderland tea party with a Halloween twist!
We designed two panel invitations that were held together with ribbon.  The fronts of the panels featured Alice in Wonderland and Halloween elements while the backs featured the in…

Brea + Byron | "Mustache Bash" Couple's Shower

Here is part 2 of Brea and Byron's baby shower designs!  For their couple's shower, they wanted "Mustache Bash" themed invitations incorporating a mustache and bow tie!  We were dying to design using this theme so we were thrilled when they contact us!  A chalkboard texture and chevron stripes were added into the design along with a black and white newspaper print pattern that is actually the same fabric that will be in Baby Young's nursery!  Brea's a teacher and wanted books for her little one so a book insert was also included in this design.  Love this idea!
