Pennant Baby Shower

One of the designs that I feature on my etsy shop is this Pennant Baby Shower invitation. Designed to celebrate one of my dear friends, she really wanted something that wasn’t too girly. She originally told me NO pink whatsoever, but being the mom of a boy I was dying to have at least some pink!  Luckily we ended up being able to slip a little bit of it in there without going too over the top, and mom was still happy.

At the shower, we stayed fairly simple with the decorations, and created some name banners that matched the invitation design.   Continue reading

It’s all just a game of LIFE

It’s been about a month since we moved our family into our new home. Our second move for the year, this one was a bit easier seeing as most of our things were already packed. Settling into the new home, however, has been a bit more difficult for us. We’re getting there though… slowly but surely!

Bridal showers involving the guys are always a little tricky (they can be such complainers!), so we tried our hardest to find a theme that didn’t just scream bridal shower.  The result? A Game of LIFE shower!

None of us had played the game in ages, so we had a bit of recon work to do. Luckily one of my co-hostesses knew several families who were gracious enough to let us borrow their games. After a few days of research and planning here is what we came up with!

The invitation. Mostly, anyway. The actual design of their invitation was slightly different, but very similar to this one.

We created larger versions of the game pieces to decorate with. It took a bit of planning (and a lot of scotch tape), but I was so excited with how they turned out! Continue reading
