These bridal shower invitations from Kara Anne Design combine three of my favorite things: beautiful calligraphy, kraft paper, and a colorful floral pattern. What could be better for a summer bridal shower in the South? I’m also loving the lace-inspired inner envelopes made from doilies. Such a sweet and feminine detail!
From Kara: For my life long friend, Haley, I wanted to create a beautiful and tasteful bridal shower invitation. The envelope liners are a custom watercolor painting that gave the invitation the perfect pop of color for a summer wedding.
The inner lace envelopes were hand made using paper doilies and silk ribbon that enclosed the invitation.
The invitation was printed on a bright white laid paper to add a little texture to the paper suite. For the final touch I used white calligraphy ink on kraft envelopes. The invitation set the tone for the party! For Haley’s special event, Lulu’s Cake Shop in Montgomery, Alabama created a delicious and beautiful cake that embodied exactly what I had in mind: lace and flowers!
We made a cake banner with kraft paper, little wooden sticks, and white calligraphy ink to match the invitation envelopes.
