a spot of tea - kate's baby shower | social events

first of all - i haven't blogged in over a month.  embarrassing. i apologize.  moving on...

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'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!

who doesn't love a great cup of tea!
