Jamie and Robin recently welcomed baby Ruby (don't even get me started on the cuteness... oh my goodness), and I was excited to put together their baby shower invitations in the fall. We used soft pinks and grays on layered matte stocks to create something sweet, with a bit of whimsy.

Hello! And for your daily dose of "things I didn't ask," let me say, taking over Salutations has been my first real foray into blogging, and for someone who talks AND writes as much as I do, and spends so much time sitting at the computer, it's blown my mind to discover I'm so bad at it. I really thought blogging would be this very natural thing, but it's so not. It's the photos. I truly hate staging and shooting still photos, and even more all the uploading, processing, selecting, editing, sizing, and finally posting. So much work that I just can't seem to sit down and do. Anyway—all that to say, here's a new post—two months later.
As you may have read, after finishing Courtney's shower invitations we went right to work on the accessories. Her mom, Diane, was putting together a candy bar and needed signs for that; there were also wayfinding signs, centerpiece signs, table numbers, and place cards for 70 guests. We used the same gorgeous papers from the invitations throughout, as well as the chocolate brown tulle, giving everything an elegant and cohesive look, of course with that shabby chic style.
And I'm guessing at the end of the day, everyone went home with pockets full of pink and white treats. :)

You may remember Courtney's Bay Harbor Yacht Club wedding from past mention on the blog... I did her accessories a few years ago and we've stayed in touch ever since. Now she's expecting a baby girl and I recently completed shower invitations to fit with the Shabby Chic theme her mom, Diane, is working SO hard to put together.
Diane really wanted a tactile, 3D element incorporated with the invitations, so we decided on chocolate brown tulle wrapped around a GORGEOUS thick, textured floral stock. The shower centerpieces are going to be surrounded in miniature tutus as well, so I thought this was a cute nod to something guests will see that day.
The pale pink shimmer stock used for the top layer coordinated perfectly, and we used it for the envelopes as well, which were printed to match. I love how these invitations scream "baby girl" but are still so romantic and sophisticated—not sacrificing style in the name of baby.
At the moment I'm working on lots of little signs and accessories for the shower, so look for those soon!
