I didn’t have an immediate vision when I was asked to design Melissa’s* baby shower invitation. Instead, I poked around for inspiration and found an image of vintage floral wallpaper online to use as a starting point. The pattern was cute and quaint, so I decided to take the quaint factor even further and create a design reminiscent of homemade crafts.
I love how a simple invitation can inspire party planning. Imagine—this is the type of shower where you’d serve blueberry cobbler. Where the fabric napkins come in assorted blue-and-white patterns. And where the table centerpiece is a white spray-painted tree decorated with hanging blue heart-tags!
