Baby showers can be so much fun â€“ and the theme options are endless! Freelance designer Candice Scott sent over the invitations that she recently designed for a friend’s shower â€“ which she also hosted! Inspired by the mom-to-be’s career as an elementary school teacher, Candice came up with the idea of a literature-themed tea party baby shower. The invitations feature lots of littleÂ book-inspiredÂ details â€“ so fun!
From Candice: When my friend Cristin announced that she was having her first baby, I jumped at the chance to throw her baby shower so that I could design the invitations! Since Cristin is an elementary school teacher I wanted to create a literature themed tea party.
The invitation itself was inspired by the title page of book. Subtle details like â€œFirstÂ Additionâ€ instead of Edition, â€œPublished byâ€ instead of hosted by, and use of the copyright symbol are some of my favorite detailsÂ of the design.
I used a white 110 lb. card stock for the front and a thick textured light pink scrapbook paper for the reverse side. The diaper raffle ticket imitates a library check outÂ cardÂ and the holder was achieved by cutting a coin envelope in half.
The party favor tags were inspired by the paper end of a tea bag. The ribbon wraps around the handle just as one would wrap the string on a cup of tea. I cut thick chipboard for the backing and used an eyelet punch to create the hole for the ribbon.
