Colleen fromÂ Printwheel PrintshopÂ sent over these adorable invitations for a brunch baby shower that she co-hosted for her sister! The invitations (and envelopes) feature Colleen’s whimsical hand lettering that perfectly set the tone for a laid back brunch, along with patterns and details inspired by her sister’s favorite fabrics. So cute!
From Colleen:Â â€œBaby Beanâ€ was on the way, and it was time to celebrate! I was so excited to design these invitations for my sister and â€œBaby Beanâ€ (our nickname for her little bundle of joy). A baby shower brunch is a simple and sweet event, so I wanted these invitations set the tone for this beautiful and fun day.
My sister owns her own sewing business,Â Little Luvins. So I pulled inspiration for the style and color of the shower invitations from her favorite fabrics. I also decided to use hand lettering on each piece to create a whimsical, playful look.
Along with the invitation, we included a tiny pocket, containing instructions and a blank library card. The instructions asked each guest to bring a childrenâ€™s book to help fill Baby Beanâ€™s future library. Guests could fill out the library card and add a special note. It would then double as a gift tag and keepsake for the mom-to-be.
The invitations were printed on Craneâ€™s LettraÂ paper byÂ Rise and Shine Letterpress.Â Their team was fantastic to work with, and the letterpress truly brought the design to life.
I ordered envelopes from Paper Presentation and created my own envelope liners to complement the triangles on the invitations. Each envelope was addressed in similar lettering to match the invitations. I ordered a customÂ â€œBaby Beanâ€Â stamp fromÂ Simonâ€™s StampsÂ for the envelopes, and it was the perfect finishing touch.Â My sister was thrilled with the result! As for the shower, it was a success, and â€œBaby Beanâ€ (Samantha) arrived this past June.
