Baby BFF | Baby Shower Branding & Event Design

“Born Together, Best Friends Forever” was the theme of an adorable baby shower I designed for my long time client’s.  Summer and Savannah were celebrated by family and friends in the cutest way, during their baby shower held at the Novi Community Center.  The branding began with the classic broken heart representing best friends along with their official event monogram.  The invitations introduced their pink and purple color scheme along with showcasing all things girly and baby.  The table-scapes rotated between baby pink and lavender linens, with three themed tables which included 1. Pink and purple teddy bears in baskets with soft towels and baby bibs, 2. Girly pink and purple puppy purses with jewelry and dress up shoes, and 3. Fresh flowers with baby bottles, blocks and pacifiers.  The sweet table was also a show stopper for guests and featured treats with incredible details!  It was super fun to design this shower from beginning to end and i’m always honored for my clients who trust me with the most important events of their life!

How to Use Patterns in Your Stationery Designs

Whether I’m designing for weddings, social events, or corporate clients I ALWAYS have patterns in the back of my head.  I use patterns as the finishing touches in a stationery suite or fully branded event stationery.  The patterns helps to carry out a theme, add style, provide an unexpected design element, along with helping to fill in “white space” that is not intentional.
Today I’d like to share some ways in which you can use patterns to make your invitations and stationery even more FABULOUS!

Baby Shower Storybook Invitations

166_2604_full
Storybook style invitations instantly take you back to memories from your childhood, or ones that you’ve created with your children.  This was definitely the case when Mommy Keisha decided that she wanted me to create custom invitations for her Vintage Winnie The Pooh themed baby shower.  She is a repeat client who always gives me creative control so I came up with this idea that was inspired by the Antique Winnie The Pooh storybooks I discovered while researching her theme. I’m sssoooo in love with how super cute they turned out and I couldn’t wait to share them with you!
The overall invitation was designed in a soft blue and chocolate brown color palette for a little boy.  The storybook style invitation was made from thick and sturdy card stock that was gold foil printed and double scored to look and feel like an actual book!  Don’t you love how the “title” is also printed on the spine of the book!  Inside of the book featured pages containing scenes from Winnie The Pooh books and the formal wording inviting guests to the shower.  The RSVP card was designed as library checkout card and was held in it’s own pocket inside of the book.  The finishing touches were the custom envelope liner and the coordinating thank you cards!

Designer Dalmatian Themed Baby Shower Invitations

Adorable Dalmatian themed baby shower invitations were designed for one of my fav repeat clients, Sheree, as her and her family celebrated the arrival of Baby Boy #2. She is one of my bling loving clients so we had to find a way to glam up these invitations a bit, while still keeping them boy friendly. We added a custom printed envelope liner to beautiful royal blue envelopes, and a single swarovski crystal embellishment to the custom drawn dog collar on the invitation. An additional insert card was also included in this set!

Rustic Fall Owl Baby Shower Invitations

Today’s featured invitation design is super special because they were designed for the intimate baby sprinkle for our second son! We chose to host an intimate sprinkle (small baby shower) for close family and friends at my favorite italian restaurant, Maggiano’s. The invitations were an oversized 7″ square flat panel that featured woodgrain textured card stock. The oversized ivory envelopes also featured a cutesy owl printed envelope liner. I’ll follow up with another post with pictures from the event!
