while the down time after a busy wedding season of paper is much needed, i love how much time it allowed for me to do some special event invitations! these were invitations for a baby shower that my dear cousin, emily was hosting. a few of my aunts and cousins have the most impeccable taste, and trust me..you're a lucky lady if you have a shower hosted by one of them. emily and her friend who also hosted chose to do a tea party. so when it came to the invitations - we put our heads together to figure out the perfect style. she wanted it to be very colorful - so reds, aquas, and greens did the trick! emily found a great little poem she wanted to include in the wording. the invitations were shaped like a tea bag, and to add a little fun, several different patterned backings were used. the style of the print on the invitations was a play off of a vintage tea label, and the little 'tab' was used for the registry information. i was very excited with how these turned out! i included a few images emily let me use from the party. she used additional paper we used in the invitations for place mats. genius. enjoy!
