As most of my readers already know, I'm pregnant and cannot wait for my little dude to arrive. My mom's friends are planning my baby shower, but I have been given a few tasks in planning the shower. One of those tasks was to make, print, and fill out invitations for the shower.
I gave it a lot of thought before I made a decision to print out anything. I wanted everything to be just perfect. Invitations are one of the major parts to planning a party whether it be a wedding, baby shower, or birthday party. So, I didn't want to take this task too lightly, but I wanted to have fun in the process.
I decided that I didn't want a cookie cutter invitation to spread the word about my little man's shower. I wanted these invitations to be intimate, personal, and most of all simple. I just had no idea where to begin or what information to include because I've never made baby shower invitations before.
I started my search on Pinterest to see different designs and what other people were doing. While everything was cute and would have been just fine, I wanted it to be more personal. So, I broke out my design skills and designed something that fit my specifications exactly.
Here's the outcome of all of my efforts! I think that they're amazing!!
