Last week I finally finished the green and blue elephant invitations I had been working on for Amy. She and some friends in Seattle are hosting a baby shower brunch for a friend. I wanted to design something personal, and a little different from the usual baby shower invite. So I thought it would be nice to incorporate a theme I knew she would like. Since of course she picked it out! I had Amy email me a picture of the bedding for the nursery. Below is a picture of the gorgeous linens found at Babies R Us. The bedding is an adorable elephant theme called Emory, by CoCaLo. To go along with the invite, I sent her some decoration and food ideas also. Below is a mood board I put together with different inspirations found on the world wide web! Starting at the top left moving clockwise:
