Come Party With Me: Baby Shower — Invites

One of the Sugar girls is pregnant for the first time and this week I'm planning her baby shower. When hosting a shower for a friend or family member always sit down with the mom-to-be and ask her what kind of party she envisions. Denise requested a small, intimate brunch. Her little girl's room is being decorated in khaki, pale pink, and light yellow, so I've used these colors to create the invite. A pretty butterfly motif runs throughout. To see how I made these easy invitations,

.

To make a similar invitation you will need the following supplies:

  • Colored cardstock
  • decorative two-sided paper
  • satin ribbon
  • scissors
  • glue
  • computer and printer
  • tape
  • inspiring image (I used this image of a butterfly nightlife, the new mother-to-be recently purchased)

To assemble the invite:

  1. Create a new document in Microsoft word. Insert the butterfly image. Shrink down to a small size and copy and paste it several times to create a border.
  2. In between the butterfly border, write the details of the shower. I used the font Curlz MT in size 14 to write the following:
    Please join us for a baby shower in honor of
    Denise Stirk
    On Saturday, October 11, 2008
    At half past eleven in the morning.

    PartySugar’s House
    San Francisco, CA

    R.S.V.P to PartySugar 415.555.5555

    Denise is registered at Giggle and Pottery Barn Kids

  3. Insert a border around the entire message.
  4. Print out on plain paper. Check for grammar and spelling mistakes. Once satisfied with the look, print out on the cardstock.
  5. Cut down to size. Glue to one side of the printed cardstock.
  6. Cut the cardtsock down to size.
  7. Cut a small piece of the decorative paper to fit over the invite information. Cut this in half.
  8. Carefully tape each piece of decorative paper to the side of the invite, centering it so it covers the text. You are creating a door.
  9. Glue a small piece of ribbon to the middle of one side of the door. Repeat with the other side.
  10. Tie the ribbon into a pretty bow.
  11. Slide into an envelope and send.
