Lisa & Matthew : Baby Shower Invitations

Lisa and Matthew are former wedding clients, and I recently had the opportunity to work with them again as they await the arrival of their first baby - a girl! We worked together on their baby shower invitations, which incorporate their fun "Made in Michigan" shower theme and colors from the baby's nursery - pink, purple, and gray.


Lisa had the idea to use a children's mitten as the visual for the state of Michigan. I found the perfect image of a hand-knit mitten and placed a heart near Detroit where they live.


There will be stripes and polka dots in the baby's nursery, and those patterns and shapes were brought into the invitations with a diagonal striped pattern and lavender paper wrap behind the round "Made in Michigan" seal.


Two enclosure cards were included with the invitations. A lavender card with a poem and request to bring a book in lieu of a card, framed by dots and stripes. Also, a soft gray card with a custom map design and directions to the baby shower location.



Light pink envelopes were addressed in a coordinating design


And to complete the look, custom "It's a girl!" postage stamps
