Beachy Bridal Shower
Michelle's great high school friend Heather is getting married! She was kind enough to put Heather's mom in touch with me for the invitation design. Cathy (Heather's mom) gave me complete creative freedom (I love that) with a request for something beachy and perhaps, purple. It's kind of a funny story, actually. In her email to me she didn't use the word beachy, she was much cuter and asked for something "seashore-ish." I read it as SEAHORSE and I spent an entire evening trying to come up with a pretty seahorse design and failed miserably. I wrote to her the next day and asked how she felt about starfish, instead of seahorses, and she said anything beachy would do. When I went back and read the initial email I realized my mistake and was kicking myself for losing a whole night of designing. I found this beautiful clipart from Pumpkin Coach's Etsy shop and knew I had to work with the lavender coral. This is the final result! I was in love with the design, and thankfully, so was Cathy! I also designed matching thank you cards and cookie tags for the delicious biscotti that Michelle baked for the event. Heather's shower was last weekend. Michelle is serving as Heather's Matron of Honor and had a hand in planning the menu for the shower. Check out her post. The food sounds fantastic! Congratulations Heather and Jeff!
