Beyond the insane wind and the abnormally hot day for San Francisco, the baby shower went well! We ended up moving inside when the sun decided to attempt to kill us all (I’m tanned, no!) but overall, I’d say it was a good day!
But before I get into the day… here are the invitations that I created with my little slave laborer Jen. With gocco, scissors, and a couple of x-acto knives, here they are!
Our inspiration for the theme was that our friend, Sarah, was sad to have given up corn dogs during her pregnancy. We thought, well, we’ll have a mini carnival with all the best carnival foods! So to set the tone, we came up with there popcorn bag invitations!
Jen and I got together one night and goccoed these invitations, hand-cutting the tops into the popcorn/cloud shapes. And we printed the tickets out, cutting them out by hand, and ran them through a sewing machine to simulate the perforations. All I hoped was the effort we put into the invitations didn’t raise expectations from the invitees… there was no room for a bounce house and a ferris wheel.
After we popped these in the mail, I sent Jen to work making all sorts of things… because that’s what she’s for!
