If there’s any celebration that calls for confetti, it’s a baby shower! Designer Lauren Chism sent over these bright and colorful baby shower invitations for her friend’s recent shower. Lauren filled vellum envelopes with a rainbow of handmade confetti – so fun!
From Lauren: As a stationery designer, it’s been so fun to transition from weddings to babies with my friends. I have been lucky enough to design lots of special paper goods for my friend, Kristen, and I had the wonderful honor of designing the invitations for her baby shower this past fall. If I could use any word to describe Kristen, it’s ‘FUN’, so I knew that they needed to have a level of playfulness to them… and lots and LOTS of color. We ended up going with a confetti themed shower and her sister thought it would be awesome if we could use actual confetti for the invitations… and so we did!
After playing around with a few ideas, I decided to tuck each invitation inside a vellum envelope attached to bright yellow card stock. Each envelope was full of handmade confetti and sealed with a sticker. I tried to use enough confetti that you pretty much couldn’t avoid a little mess of confetti when opening. The back of the invitation featured all the details in a fun, unique layout. Everything was digitally printed, so even with the different pieces, it was still economical. I loved how every part fit with the bright cheerful (and COLORFUL) theme.
Kristen always challenges me to go outside of my neutral color palette with her love for bright colors. Designing with lots of color pretty much goes against all of my natural instincts, but I have to say, the result sure is fun! I should do it more often!
