Lady Magnolia’s Shower

I had the honor(along with two of my best friends, April and Rachael) of throwing a baby shower for our dear friend, Nicole. The baby’s name, Magnolia, was a secret. So for the invitation design, I used abstract magnolias as a teaser. Only the mom and a few others recognized the symbolism, which was sweet. 

In addition to the invitations, I also took on a paper craft project and handmade paper magnolia flowers (courtesy of Paper Source) to decorate the food table. Those took me about 4 hours to finish, and I had glue on my fingers for days after, but well worth it. For part of her gift, I also handmade a baby mobile with trees and owls. (pictures of the flowers and mobile to come soon)
