This past Saturday, family and friends gathered at my aunt’s house to celebrate the arrival of my cousin’s first child. Her and her husband are having a little girl and everyone is so excited. They are expecting her January 2, what a nice gift for the new year!

The invitations were a nice mix of pastels and modern touches. I was so happy she came to me to design them for her. It was fun creating a custom piece with her ideas and bringing them to life. I also designed her thank you’s which reflected the same style. You can find both in my shop!

The shower was coordinated by my aunt Debbie, who did such an amazing job. From the delicious food and desserts to all the small details, the event was beautiful from every angle. Purple, pink, and teal were the inspirational colors and each were sprinkled around the house for an overall modern and pretty style. The little hand cut paper bows I made were scattered throughout as well.

Pink chevron table runners adorned the tables in the tented area along with a mix of fresh spring flowers and candles.

They received so many gorgeous gifts! It’s safe to say they will have everything they need and more. I always enjoy seeing how people wrap their presents and what kinds of paper they use. There were an interesting array of different colors, patterns, and boxes used which brought so much life to the space.

I created little signs that reflected the design of the invitations to describe all the sandwiches and other food options. Some were attached to pastel paper straws and others were tented.

There were an array of desserts from homemade cookies, fruit, tiny donuts, and the cutest cake ever. All were delicious!

Everyone left with a bath bomb all packaged up and tied with thank you tags I designed and of course another sign. I can’t wait to use mine!

All in all, it was such a nice day with all the lovely ladies in my cousin’s life. I am extremely happy for her and her husband and wish them only the best future as new parents.
