I love wedding invitations that go beyond the normal. Thought I’d share a few of my recent loves…
Invitations on hankerchiefs by Lucky Luxe Couture.
This gorgeous invitation suite by Bird and Banner was hand-printed on vintage hankies + post cards.
Another sweet invite with cotton muslin stitched onto dark wood grain embossed paper by Bird and Banner.
Cute fabric pouches which held the letter pressed invitation and rsvp card (the fabrics also made an appearance at the reception on custom designed signs + menus!) – also by Bird and Banner.
And this lovely invite by Anna Bond of Rifle Paper. From Anna, For their invitation we decided to play up their love for handmade with a hand sewn invitation design. I used embroidery thread and sewed it directly into paper to create the design and then added hand painted lettering before scanning the art for printing. She then scanned the design for the actual invites – simply stunning!
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

One of the Best Baby Shower Invitation Ideas is the Childrenâ��s Book Theme. Ask each guest to include her favorite childâ��s book for the new babyâ��s library-to-be. Most guests usually bring more than one book and itâ��s a great way for everyone to reminisce about special memories at the party.

Second on the list of Best Baby Shower Invitation Ideas is the Handy Week Helpers for the Couple Theme. Organize a week of short, but helpful activities as part of the group event, where some of the invited guests offer an hour of assistance one day of the week just before the Baby Shower.
Some suggestions for the week:
* No-Cook Monday: One or two of the guests brings dinner for the couple.
* Foot Massage Tuesday
* Walk-The-Dog Wednesday
* Wash-The-Car Thursday
