I’m throwing back on this Thursday to one of the most gorgeous baby showers I’ve ever seen.

I’ve been designing for the lovely Rebecca Hemrick for years,
and I was thrilled when her sister contacted me
to design the paper goods for her gender neutral shower.

Rebecca wanted a nautical-themed shower, and I knew that it would be perfect.
She has incredible vision, and it runs in the family.
These girls know how to plan a party, and they always nail the details!

She wanted to use bright clear blues, yellow, clean grays and white.

We printed on a luxe, thick watercolor paper to give it texture and weight.

I just love how the color lays on the paper.

We also printed some “wish” cards for guests to fill out during the shower.
I know these wishes to baby will be treasured forever!

We also printed some stationery, hostess gift tags, and display cards for around the shower.

One of the hostesses, Heather Cummans, of Heather Cummans Photography
took these stunning shots. Enjoy this nautical eye candy!

I would say this shower was picture perfect, don’t you think?
It will go down as one of my favorite themes, and it’s perfect for gender neutral.

I’m kind of obsessed.

So what did she end up having?

A beautiful baby girl sailor!

Congrats again to you and Matt, Becca! She’s an angel!

I’m eagerly awaiting the birth of one sweet, baby girl (not mine, people)!

A couple of weeks ago, some friends and I threw a baby shower to help our friend, Jamie, get ready for life after delivery. I was thrilled to get to design something unique for her.

Jamie has been into the hand-done look lately, so I thought it would be fun to incorporate some loose calligraphy.

I found some beautiful, stock vector art in these flowers…I just love the style! They are reminiscent of Rifle Paper Company, and there’s just something warm and happy about them (and girly)! :)

How cute is that little duckie and diaper pin? Baby invites are just too much fun…

We even made some last minute cards for the food and drinks…

The shower was a lot of fun, and Jamie got some much-needed baby gear. More shower pics coming soon!

We can’t wait to meet you baby girl Lumpkin!

I absolutely loved designing for this invitation! The hostesses for the shower work with the mommy-to-be and wanted to throw something special for her.

After chatting with the client, I knew that I wanted the invitation to be high-end and classy but fun, too. And, it’s for a sweet baby boy, so I wanted the colors to reflect that.

Hope your shower was a blast, Tiffany, and we’re excited about baby boy DeGruy! :)
