A Baby Shower in the Garden

We spent a wonderful day this weekend celebrating my good friend Cam (and by association Beak) and her soon to be baby girl. I am so honored to have been able to throw a shower for these two (plus one). They are some fine people and a few of my dearest friends. I am thrilled beyond words for them to soon be parents.

I was totally inspired by Shanna Murray's decal illustrations. I knew from the get go I wanted the party to involve a lot of handmade elements and I thought I'd start by penning the invitations in my own handwriting.
