Party Girl: Jamie
Celebration Type: Baby Shower
Inspiration: the baby's nursery bedding & theme
Color Palette: blue, red, green, orange, gray, brown
Jamie is the daughter of a WONDERFUL customer of mine named Gaye.
You may remember the giraffe themed baby shower Gaye hosted for Jamie herself a few months back?
Well...it was Jamie's turn to host a baby shower for a friend of hers.
Using the color palette in the baby's nursery, an invite sample Jamie liked and this photo...
the ABC wall being created in the baby's nursery
We came up with this invitation:
I ADORE how it turned out.
And I LOVE how we incorporated EMERSON'S name (which I love that name btw), into the invitation to personalize it even more.
One of my favorite things to do when planning a baby shower is to pull inspiration from the baby's nursery.
Not only do you end up with party elements that can be used in the nursery following the shower...(SMART)
but you also create a customized baby shower the mother-to-be will undoubtedly love...
since it's ultimately a theme she's picked out herself. (even SMARTER). *wink*
At the request of Jamie, we created this...
A Keepsake Art Print used as part of the shower decor
& later incorporated into the nursery decor (SMART)
With all of the party elements designed...
my part was over.
The rest was up to Jamie and Gaye.
Take a peek at the photos they sent in...

I think Jamie and Gaye did an outstanding job of pulling off this adorable ABC themed baby shower.

A very BIG thank you to Jamie & Gaye for calling on me to help bring their vision to life.

Things don't always go smoothly when designing a new collection.
When Jamie & Gaye started printing the invitations, we had to revise the colors to suite her printer.
And although I originally created an 8x10 keepsake art print...
it ended up needing to be resized at the last minute because it would've made the art print too big using a matte.
But at the end of the day...Jamie & Gaye were quite patient with me as we tweaked this collection and we were all very happy with the end results!!
