Feather the Nest... a Baby Shower

nesting bingo was played as the mom-to-be opened her gifts
moss balls, wine boxes, branches and some baby's breath decorate the dessert table

the paper feather, included in each invitation, is a raffle ticket for the diaper raffle
A different theme for a baby shower, that's what my daughter was looking for as we planned this bash for her BFF Kendall. Feathers, twigs, wooden boxes, and of course nests!  The invitation was done in moss green and khaki papers with moss green twine and a real feather. The feather printed paper I used as an envelope liner was a great find at Paper Source. It had a rustic, natural feel to it that lent itself to the theme of the shower. And that is what the feel of the baby's room is as well. The mom-and-dad-to-be have got the cutest nursery waiting for their little bundle. Neutral colors, gray and khaki, are the backdrop but the coolest thing is it even has a teepee in it! I'm in love with this twist on feathering a baby's nest.

Rehearsal Dinner Chalkboard Invitation

The MOG had a different invitation in mind for this rehearsal dinner invitation. Something more Mexican-fiesta-like. But the groom really wanted the chalkboard style. So she requested subtle strands of colorful lights to be added and this is the final result! Let's party!!

She's Turning Eighty, yes she is!

She loves peonies. Pink ones as a matter of fact. So that's where we started with this 80th birthday invitation that includes a shimmery green background paper to compliment the shades of green in the watercolor. She's a pretty hip grandma so a playful font was chosen for her. You go Gail!
