Sweet Blue and Green Giraffe and Monkey Baby Shower Invitations

As you may have seen, Woods&Company has a brand new website, thanks to the talented Rebecca Unter! In exchange for her great work, I agreed to create some invitations for a baby shower that she is co-hosting at the end of the month.

The mother to be shared that they would be decorating the nursery in a jungle theme, and thought it would be nice to have the invitations follow suit. We decided on a giraffe graphic as the main graphic and a monkey graphic as an embellishment.

Since the mom-to-be is having a boy, I decided to got with a green and blue scheme, but with bits of yellow to round out the jungle theme. The main invitation features a blue and green border with text in the same colors, and the giraffe is yellow with blue and green spots. The giraffe graphic appears on the address label as well, and his monkey friend was added to a separate card explaining to the guests that it was a pot-luck shower. We sealed the envelopes with a monkey sticker and sent them off!

I was really excited about how these turned out. I love the simple, yet pleasing graphics, and I love the idea of a pot luck shower! Everyone brings a little something! Less stress and headache for the hosts!

I can't wait to see how the rest of the shower turns out.

Welcome Baby Tarbox!
