Floral Bridal Shower Invitations







I worked with Niki's MOH to create these apple green and chocolate brown bridal shower invitations. It was a bit of a balance act to create an elegant formal invitation with a monogram that also fit with the bride's style, which was described to me as "hippie chic" / Anthropologie-esque...but I think we succeeded!

For design inspiration, I *happily* browsed the latest spring fashions at Anthropologie.com, and decided a bold floral pattern was a must. The pattern we chose frames a monogram of the couple's first initials, and I love that it's a feature yet also woven into the print. To balance the organic look of the pattern, I used a mix of more formal block fonts for the invitation wording.

I LOVE MY SHOWER INVITES!! I got my copy in the mail this week and funny enough wore chocolate brown paints and an apple green top to work that day. You were spot on. They are beautiful. Thank you so much!!
