b is for baby! super cute baby shower invite with an alphabet theme

6053386584

I searched everywhere for the right invitation for my sister's baby shower. I knew what I was looking for and I just couldn't find it.

I wanted to make it myself but I lean more towards cutting and pasting of actual paper and that just wasn't going to work in this case. I needed computer design skills.

Sadly, it is a language I do not speak.

Then I thought to myself, hmmm, hold on a second here, I have a super cool graphic designer lady living right next store. Maybe she can help.

Yay! I am so lucky to have Bethany Ng as a neighbor!

She turned my general sketch of a tree with the alphabet "growing" from it with a few cute critters into a sweet reality that was even better than I imagined. It was so nice to work with her.

This was the top portion of the back side of the invite. The information for the party was listed underneath.

It's next Saturday, so I'm geared up for my east coast trip and getting all of my baby shower ideas together:

Alphabet theme (as you can see!) in bright hues of pink, orange, blue and green, cake pops as favors, colored cupcakes in baby food jars, A-Z necessities for the new parent, cookies, a fantastic party decoration that I found online that has to be kept top secret until the big day, and a few other treats for my very prego sis.
