{celebrate} baby shower invites

The invites are out and the celebration is quickly approaching. The theme? A new chapter. I was inspired by a Martha Stewart book-themed baby shower and used their incredibly charming images for these invites. There are five simple steps:

1. Format invites in a word processing program.
2. Print
3. Cut and trim using an edge punch
4. Create insert with special directions for guests and registry information
5. Address, stamp, and send.

These images also greatly influenced the color palette of the party. The combination managed to feel slightly gender neutral, having the aqua to balance out the different shades of pink. After putting these together and being so happy with them, the following colors have become the focus of our little soiree.

As a bonus we already have handmade fuchsia overlays from the lovely rehearsal dinner our family threw for the mister and me. Those, paired with my small collection of aqua jars and vintage teal ornaments, should create a nice backdrop for this joyous event.

I cannot wait to meet my future niece or nephew!


Thanks for stopping by. Gotta love comments! I appreciate you taking the time!
