inspired by: baby bedding

This week we were inspired by the baby bedding for a friend’s upcoming bundle of joy! And created her baby shower invitation to coordinate with the bedding.

Here is the bedding that was registered for by Serena and Lily:

The elephants, the graphics, the colors – LOVE! This was the inspiration behind her baby shower invitation.

Ombré sugar dome birthday cake

Happy birthday to my husband!! It shouldn’t take more than 4 hours to bake a cake, but when you are making several shades of your own sugar domes and need several trips to the store, sometimes things can get out of control. That’s right, crazy wild baking cakes on a Friday night!

Burlap Shmurlap

I don’t pretend to be a whiz kid at sewing so upfront I want to confess that this DIY could not have been done without the help of lovely mom, who is a master seamstress grande dame.  Thanks momma!

Materials I used:

2 NILS stools from Ikea – $44.99 each

Coffee Sack from a local flea market – $1

Amazing mom as seamstress

First, I measured out the pattern and how I wanted the image to appear on both stools. Because I used only 1 coffee sack, the prep work was important!

We cut the burlap bag down one vertical seam to measure it out on the stool. Mom hand-stitched the corners using thread from the burlap that we originally cut away (so the thread matched the fabric). She pinned it together and hand-stitched the 4 seams on each stool to perfection!

quatrefoil lovin’

I designed these beautiful cards for Ellen, who was planning on using to write thank you cards for her recent baby shower. They’d be great as Thank You’s, Baby Stationery, Social Stationery, or ‘just because’ cards. The hand-lined envelopes are perfect for that pop of unexpected color on the inside. We loved our afternoon assembling them – HERE.

Love the rounded corners!

 Thanks Ellen, Hope you enjoy!

Hand-Lined Envelopes

We’ve got the music cranked up with a nice cup of tea and are busy bees hand-lining envelopes this afternoon!

Letters to Baby Wright

The hostesses of a baby shower approached Honeycomb Stationery Studio to design and print these adorable ‘Par Avion’ Antique postal system – inspired letters to baby. The hostesses planned on having a table at the baby shower where the guests could create ideas and fill in the blanks for a bit of ad-lib fun!

I LOVE anything antique-inspired, especially travel (ok, mayyybe modern conveniences and technology are a little bit more useful in travelling than antique systems were…) But generally the idea of old suitcases, big sunglasses with a scarf around your head, and hand-delivering packages all over the world just thrills me.

This is also a great option for those mommies-to-be that have decided to not find out the gender or for baby showers that are early in the pregnancy!

I loved working with the hostesses on this project! I guess the only question now is…who is going to teach the baby to read??

Happy Baby Shower Mallory!

A few weeks ago, Mallory contacted me about her upcoming baby plans – I was so happy she called! Mallory and her husband Chance are the SWEETEST couple and they are going to be fantastic parents! She wanted invitations for her baby shower and birth announcements. We are still waiting on the due date of their daughter, who will be called Laney Cassiana, a beautiful name with heart-touching significance (They chose the middle name in honor and rememberance of a friend who passed away too soon). Mallory’s brief to me was this:

  • Elegant
  • Classy
  • Fun
  • She was inspired by the nursery she and her husband have worked so hard to create – pink, white, and accents of green

After several rounds of drafts, editing, and changes, we developed together her theme…

Here are some of the after pics (sorry about the fuzzy picture quality!)

Happy Baby Shower Mallory! And I can’t wait to meet Laney and to print the coordinating birth announcements!
