A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of featuring these absolutely GORGEOUS copper foil wedding invitations from Samantha and Whitney – the dynamic duo behind Gus & Ruby Letterpress – and today we’re super excited to share Samantha’s festive baby shower invitations! The bold jewel tones and bright primary colors are such a fun take on a gender-neutral color palette, and of course I’m loving the sprinkle motif that Whitney incorporated throughout the invitation suite. So cheerful and summery! Congrats Sam!
From Samantha: Once again, Whitney designed this custom suite to invite friends to celebrate the arrival of my first baby. It is fun to have a business partner who is also a dear friend! She knows my aesthetic so well and it was such a gift to have her design these invitations for me.
Because we didn’t know the gender of our baby, we used a fun palette of rich and bold jewel tones and some pops of bright primary colors and matte white foil to keep things feeling young but gender neutral. Those funky colors paired with a casual, hand-lettering inspired font made for a cheerful vibe for our summer fête.
Fun wording set the tone for a laid-back event and spoke to our sense of humor about the wild journey of pregnancy. We even had a special nod to our pup Gus!
One of my favorite little details was that each invitation suite was wrapped in metallic twine with a tag announcing the baby’s due date. The whole bundle was then housed in a bright turquoise envelope with a patterned liner that was reminiscent of sprinkles. It was certainly a festive way to set the tone for the shower!
We kept the same aesthetic for the day-of stationery items as well. Individual menus were set at each table place setting so guests could see what was being served.
All pieces were printed on rich colored stocks and, as always, the pieces were lovingly foil printed by hand on our antique presses in New Hampshire.
Thanks Samantha & Whitney!
