We’re back with another edition of Inspiration to Invitation: a bridal shower invitation suite for a dear friend of my family- Miss Emily Scott!
Meet the (adorable!) happy couple: Matt and Emily! (awesome photo by: shot with a bow photography)
Leslee and I had a blast designing the paper goods for this shower- here’s the inspiration board we came up with:
Fun and springy, right!?
My mom, Yvette, and my youngest sister, Katherine, hosted the shower for Emily–Kat and Emily have been best friends since they were 3, so it was so special to get to work on this invitation!
Also, Leslee and I have been working with Emily on her wedding details since day one, which has been such a fun opportunity! We began with invitations to Emily and Matt’s engagement party back in the fall and their save-the-dates just a few weeks ago (photos to come once guests have received them in the mail!) We are currently working on designing their wedding invitations and the flowers for the wedding! Can’t wait to share all the details.
In the meantime, here’s the bridal shower invitations we designed:
If you’re a Vera Bradley fan, you’ll notice the “Island Blooms” print in the background of the picture above as well as in the inspiration board. Mom and Kat thought it would be special to gift Emily an album of hand-written recipes from her closest ladies to help her start her new kitchen! This album was the focal point of the party decor scheme and it helped guide our design for the paper details.
In order to create the recipe album, Mom and Kat asked us to design recipe cards to include in the invitation envelope. Each guest received 2 recipe cards (one of each color!) to record their favorite recipes. Guests brought the hand-written cards to the party and Katherine assembled the album for Emily.
Here’s a shot of the recipe cards:
Wanna see all the components to the invitation? Thought so!
We lined the envelopes in a spunky orangey/pink graphic print, which was a fun splash of color! I addressed the invitations in a teal color that coordinated well with the invitations and recipe cards.
Leslee and I both absolutely love this invitation! It’s so springy and girly and fun!
Happy Bridal Shower, Emily! We’re so happy for you and Matt 🙂
Check back on Friday for all the photos from Emily’s shower! (There are lots!)
