We know it's a bit unconventional but we hosted our Baby Shower or Baby Boy Brunch as we called it. My sister was going to host it but she ended up teaching a semester abroad in London this spring so we decided we'd just host it ourselves. It worked out great anyway because we were able to do things exactly as we wanted.
We decided to go with a simple Black & White theme and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. Our only regret is that we were having so much fun with our guest we forgot to take pictures during the party. I do wish we had a few photos with our guest and at least one photo of Christopher and I together but forgetting to take photos because you're present in the moment isn't a bad thing.
The invitation suite I designed is pictured above; the main words are all hand brush lettered and the patterns are brush painted as well. I even did a fun Advice For The New Parents card that we had our guest fill out and a matching Thank You Card (which we liked so much we decided to add it our collection, if you like it too, you can purchase it HERE.) Below are a few photos of the party decor; details with links are listed below the photos in case you'd like to pick something up for a party you are throwing!
