You may recall an earlier post featuring baby shower invitations and nursery art that I designed for a friend ... Well, I had the pleasure of designing the baby showers invitations for that friend Dodie's second baby shower as well and to support her mother in throwing an adorable party by planning games and some of the decor.
Dodie is having twins so the baby shower was appropriately themed as "Celebrating 2 Babies on June 2nd at 2pm". We wanted to incorporate this tag line into an invitation that also reflects the twins' nursery decor - which is where the navy, blue and white, chevron pattern and elephants and birds came from.
As opposed to the previous invitation that I designed, based on generally the same guidelines, this invitation has a more contemporary feel, whereas the first baby shower invitation had a more traditional feel. I used text as design in this invitation, emphasizing the 2-2-2 to represent the twins and reinforced the twins concept by including twin elephants and twin birds. I used yellow, again, as a pop of color against the navy, gray and white color scheme. The reverse side of this invitation detailed the date, time, location, etc. of the shower over a gray box laid over the navy and white chevron-patterned background.
