I definitely have babies on the brain these days, and it’s always nice to see parents do something a little unusual and fun for their baby-related stationery, from shower invitations to birth announcements. We’ve seen plenty of circus-inspired baby shower invitations, but I love this non-traditional interpretation from designer Tommy Perez for his own baby shower invitations – sideshow babies!
From Tommy: To celebrate our little Zoë’s arrival, my wife and I decided to have a circus-themed baby shower – Zoë’s Magnificent Baby Bash. The invitations were designed with a scratch-off detail, giving the invitee a chance at winning a fun prize! The invitations were digitally printed on French Poptone “Whip Cream” 65 lb cover weight paper.
To break away from traditional baby shower paraphernalia, I created a set of “Sideshow Babies” print inspired by a circus sideshow. The set of four prints included the World’s Strongest Baby, Two-Headed Baby, Amazing Bearded Baby, and Snake Charming Baby. Each print was a four color silkscreen on French Poptone “Whip Cream” 100 lb cover weight pape. We even made a “Ringmaster” onesie for Zoë to wear after she is born!
For one of the shower activities I created a “Build Your Own Elephant” paper craft project.
So great! You can see tons more photos on Tommy’s flickr page and even download the build-your-own-elephant template over on Tommy’s website right here! Thanks Tommy!

I love that this is not your typical paper shower design. Amazing attention to detail and creativity. I think this baby is in for a lifetime of great design!
Love how the theme is carried across multiple pieces. Well designed and wonderful color pallet! My favorite part is the sideshow babies. Tommy, how did you make the scratch off area?
