baby shower invitations

new design for baby shower invitations!

i did a white version and a gray... 
each with a hand sewn banner of security envelope pennant flags...
and of course a custom flag... gently giving the registry information to the guests... (which i always think is tricky to incorporate tastefully)

la three en rose

on thanksgiving, my little e turned three. can't believe her birthday has come and gone here already. we had a small party for her and the family that was in town during thanksgiving. with #2 due any day now, i was forced to keep things low key, but i couldn't imagine not having some sort of small celebration. so at her own request, we celebrated with all things pink.

 pink streamers and big pink balloons. (please don't look at my cottage cheese ceilings!)



 e's favorite berries...
 pink lemonade... of course.

 soft pink floral tablecloths with pink pom pom fringe...
 bagels in pink bakery boxes...


 flowers in shades of pink...
a very tall pink cake with buttercream and gilded animal candle holders...

paired with glasses of milk with pink sprinkled rims...
pink marshmallows, and pink frosted animal cookies...
and goodie bags filled with pink salt water taffy and denim capes with pink pom pom fringe for all of the cousins.
