Invite: Oh Baby! Oh Boy! Shower

Oh I love it when there's another party in the works! Here we are: oh baby, oh boy, it's a baby shower!

I love love love conceiving and throwing birthday parties but it's not often I get the chance to do a baby shower, and for a boy! It's so fun for this mother of girls to think "boy" for a bit. And I can't wait to meet him!

This celebration is honoring my sister-in-law and I was inspired by the things she has chosen for her baby registry--so many great colors: blues in several shades such as teal, aqua, robin's egg, and blue-grey, some greys, and white and off-white. I love her simple modern taste.

I couldn't resist playing around with a chevron print, and making my own envelopes again! Envelopes are my new favorite thing after this invitation. But I also have some "stitched circles" forming a bunting across the front and back of the invitation, and a stitched area for the address on the front of the envelope. I'm thinking of some good handmade texture for this baby shower.

If you like these invitations and have a shower in the works yourself, I am putting them in my Etsy shop. And stay tuned for more baby boy projects!
