Real Baby Shower: Modern Boy

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

The invitations AND matching printed pieces from this baby shower are SUPER C-U-T-E! Abbey of Abbey Malcolm Letterpress and Design is one talented graphic designer. She has tons of beautiful invitations and announcements on her site and I definitely recommend taking a peak. Kelly -- you are extremely lucky to have such wonderful sisters who can throw an absolutely gorgeous shower!

From Kelly... Lucky for me my sister is Abbey from the amazing Abbey Malcolm Letterpress and Design. She did all of the invitations, labels, and planning with the help from my twin sister, Jillian, to throw me a sprinkle for my sweet baby boy. For my sister and I, already with three little princesses between the two of us, weren't really sure what we were getting into with a boy to add to our group. I scoured the internet to find something cool, modern, and trendy for my little guy (I am just not into the traditional boats, trains, and planes.) So, we went with a color palette of a dark blue, white, orange and chocolate brown. With that in mind my sisters got to work. I was only allowed to know the date and location, and the rest was a surprise. The sprinkle was held at my sister Abbey's home, and my closest friends and family shared an afternoon with me. It was wonderful. 

All of the details made this small get together even more special. The favor was a cd full of lullabies from my childhood with a coordinating label. On the table next to where I opened my gifts was a framed picture of my ultrasound next to my favorite blue flowers, hydrangeas. I got some much needed boy clothing and toys since my house was covered in all things pink from my daughter two years prior. One of my favorite gifts is the custom birth announcement my sister designed to hang on the wall of the nursery which coordinated with my color scheme for the nursery and the sprinkle to remind me of that special day
