vintage baby shower preview

i am so excited!
my sister and my sister-in-law are both
pregnant with their first babies...
and they are due only a week apart!
we are very busy planning showers, but here
is a sneak peak of the first one.

my sister-in-law loves anthropology and anything vintage,
so we wanted to create a shower that had that feeling.
at first it started as a vintage toy theme, but has morphed into
a vintage toy/book/schoolhouse theme :)
i am so proud of the invite.
it's probably my favorite of anything
i've ever done.
i found a tutorial for how to create a
chalkboard background in illustrator.
{and i did 90% of it without my sister's help}
my mother-in-law helped sew the invite to fabric.
i think it makes it looks so delicate and pretty!
the mommy-to-be is a teacher,
so we loved the "G is for Girl"!

the chalkboard is incorporated throughout the shower
including these cute onesie stickers i made
for baby's monthly pictures.

check back next week to see all the shower details!
