I’m bound to love a baby shower invitation that combines a painterly watercolor feel with beautiful hand lettering, but add in a sweet “Under the Sea” theme and illustrated mama and baby whales and I’m completely sold. Event Designer Rachel of Woolston Grace Weddings worked with graphic designer Meghan Hopkins Sokorai to create these incredibly adorable invitations for the baby shower of Rachel’s business partner. So sweet!
From Rachel: When my business partner Jen Woolston of Woolston Grace Weddings got pregnant, planning her baby shower became a top priority. Set for a sunny day in June the invitations and decor were inspired by the shower’s destination, a beautiful waterfront home in Rumson, New Jersey. We enlisted the design expertise of Brooklyn graphic designer, Meghan Hopkins Sokorai. With the request for a whale theme and peach and turquoise color scheme, Meghan honored our ideas and ran with them. Her mama and baby whales became the faces of the shower.
The three piece invitations were printed on Long Island by Caro Printing Co. and packaged in white envelopes with custom designed address labels. Each shower guest was asked to complete their wishes for baby and greeted with a whale adorned straw. It truly was a whale of a good time!
Thanks so much Rachel!
