My sister is having her first baby, and my mom and I got the pleasure of hosting a baby shower for her recently. This will be the first grandchild in our family, so we are all really excited!

I chose an adventure theme. Inspired by something I saw on pinterest, I designed this invitation in PowerPoint, and we used PaperlessPost to send it out via email. I really love paper and printed stationary, but by using an online service we were able to save a ton on postage and printing. It also made tracking attendance and sending reminders super easy.

My mom and I did some crafting, and a lot of shopping to pull together all of the decorations. The goal was for my sister to be able to use a lot of our decorations in the nursery.



We enlisted the help of some friends and family for the food – brunch style finger foods, and everything turned out delicious!
