{lately} "oh baby" shower goodies

i love when i get to work with prior clients again... here are some baby shower invites my former bride Marci asked me to create for her sis' baby shower this weekend! they aren't finding out the sex of the baby so we used a fun color scheme of aqua, lime and brown and used the expression "oh baby," as well as lots of different style fonts {which i love doing, since i'm obsessed with fonts}.  
btw, i know i'm partial and all, but i just love the return addy for the envelope!

here are a few close ups of the invites...

since both mommy + daddy are teachers they asked that guest bring books, so this baby should be stocked with bedtime stories after he or she is born!

also, i just love the name of the venue where they're having the shower... 
with a name like "the lunch box" it's gotta be a pretty darn adorable place!

Marci also wanted some special decor touches for the shower... 
here's the paper pennant banner i created

close up... love the bingo looking paper i got to use for the letters

and... another shot =)

she also needed a spot for guests to drop off their gifts... so she rented this vintage frame with chicken wire and i created another quasi-sign that said "gifts" 

close up of the papers, and the corner treatments i used

and lastly, she had me create these adhesive "bookplates" for guests to stick inside the cover of the books they were bringing for the baby... and when the little one gets older they can read who gave them the book, on what date, and read a special note to them!

{sorry folks, forgot to snap a photo of these after i printed them, so a digital proof is the best i've got} =/

i can't wait to see how the shower pulls together, after all the hostess has some pretty crafty plans in the works!  good luck Marci, and i hope your sis has a blast =)


ps... i'd love for someone to give me a reason to design a femme version of these invites... hint, hint!
