As you know, I don't ever share any of the work I do for clients here. I suspect most of them wouldn't mind it but I feel like most people are more private than me so I don't want to ask them. But I've made an exception today because these invites were created for fellow blogger - The Stamford Wife. With her permission, take a peek at the invites I made for a baby shower she is hosting.
You know how I love an invite that arrives in an unconventional way.
The old adage 'the best things come in small packages' always struck me as being perfect for baby occassions. I've used it before in different incarnations back to 2003. This time a little jewelery box opens up to reveal a colorful trifold inviting guests to celebrate.
Under the invite, a little treat of white jelly beans to sweeten the deal.
The box was tied with a simple navy grosgrain ribbon and mailed in white envelopes with a wrap around label.
Nothing earth shattering but a little bit out of the ordinary. They take a bit more time and money than a simple card but I like to think they are worth it. Being a long time reader of the host's blog, I have no doubt the event will be fabulous and her guests will be treated to something special at each step of the way.
For new readers, you should know I have zero objections to sharing the invites and mailings I do for my own benefit. If anything, I have a kind of odd obsession about them. In case you missed them, here are a few:
Sometimes I wish I threw more parties just for the fun of making the invites. Or I should say thinking up the invites - making the actual item over and over is distinctly not so much fun.
