As promised, I’m back with more of the day-of stationery from Maggie and Trevor’s campaign-inspired “unshower” – along with some photos from the evening! Sara and I wanted the day-of stationery to complement the invitations, with a similar color palette and lots of graphic patterns. Michele from Meant to Be Calligraphy kindly calligraphed a few signs for us, Sarah from August Blume created a few special pieces, and our friends at Minted were kind enough to share a few items from their new party decor collection!
Since we planned the evening more like a cocktail party than a traditional baby shower, Sara and I wanted to make sure we had lots of good food and plenty to drink. Our menu included chili, cornbread, a cheese plate, pies – even s’mores over the backyard fire pit! Our drink menu included a hot apple cider station (with brandy close at hand for an alcoholic version) and our fall harvest punch.
Minted also sent over some of their large decorative tissue paper fans, which I supplemented with smaller fans from Party City. We used the fans to create a fun tissue paper installation behind the dessert buffet, then arranged a few more fans in the windows and along the mantel.
Sarah from August Blume designed cards for party guests to fill out cards with advice and wishes for Maggie, Trevor, and their baby girl, which we placed next to a sign featuring Michele’s calligraphy. Sarah also designed custom cocktail napkins and drink stirrers, and a sign for the front door welcoming guests to the party.
The happy soon-to-be-parents!
Such a fun night! And a huge congratulations to Maggie and Trevor!
