These whimsical baby shower invitations are beyond adorable – but I’d expect nothing less from the ladies of Wiley Valentine! Rachelle designed the invitations for a shower in honor of her business partner, Emily. Rachelle incorporated Emily’s love of animals throughout the design while also mixing in vintage-inspired elements and soft pastel colors. So pretty!
From Rachelle: Emily is not only my business partner of 11 years, but also one of my dearest and closest friends. I really wanted to capture her love for animals, her subtle “vintagey” style, and the muted color palette that is just so her. I was inspired by hand drawn fonts, old children’s books, and a small touch of whimsy.
The color palette was soft pastels: subtle aqua tones mixed with neutrals and a tiny hint of blush. The invitations were letterpress printed by Czar Press on extra thick cotton paper, with pale blush painted edges.
I had fun with the wording too, starting off with “We are Wildly Excited”, and including “it’s a girl” on a flag at the bottom of the invitation. The invitations really set the tone for the shower, where the elements of animals and the tag line “We are Wildly Excited” appeared.
Thanks Rachelle – and a big congrats to Emily!!
