Baby Shower Invites - For a Girl!

With the exception of two couples, all of the friends and family I grew up with have had baby boys. Statistically, things are way off - of the 17 children I have known to be born in the past 10 years, 15 of them are boys!

So, I'm very excited to be welcoming (soon!) a baby girl into the family, and I was delighted to create the invitations for Baby Madison's shower a couple weeks ago. The design was inspired by the purple bedding and black furniture chosen for the nursery, and the mom-to-be suggested the honey-jar favors.

Hi Nicole,

Everything for these invitations was a unique design — I didn't purchase any embellishments. I think I had found an illustration of a butterfly and bee that I thought were cute, and I re-drew them. The ribbon was hand-cut and tied.

Glad you like them! : )
