Baby Shower Invitations

Here is the finished product of the shower invitations I made last week. I like giving invitations in boxes. It is like getting a present. I printed the names of the the recipient on the outside and inside are the printed cards and some bright yellow Lemonheads. The back of the box has a little quote that I really like. I got some fun pictures of the assembly process below. It was like a sea of Lemonheads…

    I’m so spoiled Jordan. Now you have to get knocked-up so I can repay the favor.

    i don’t mean to be the dissenting voice at all! i’m just wondering — if they are mailed with the lemonheads, is there any worry that they’ll melt and stick to the invite and get messy?

    Lemonheads aren’t very perishable… I would have no qualms about mailing this invitation. Although to save on shipping I hand delivered most of them.

  24. Ada Chef

    I love lemonheads too.

    Okay, I’m outting myself as a reader of this blog. I don’t even remember how I came across it, but I’m obsessed!

    The invites are beautiful, but the real reason I’m posting is to ask who makes the yellow cardigan you posted from MS Weddings. I looked at her site and wasn’t able to find anything.

    Anyway, this blog is in my top 5 things I read every a.m. Thanks, Jordan!
