Block print + watercolor bridal shower invites

Handmade bridal shower invitations with recipe cards

I am really excited to share with you a new project I just finished working on!  They are floral and butterfly bridal shower invites that are individually block printed and finished with watercolors.  They also come with matching recipe cards and envelopes stamped with a matching butterfly.

It was great working with the Maid of Honor to come up with a product that really reflects the Bride for her special day- that process and making an item unique is definitely one of my favorite parts of any project!  We incorporated butterflies because they have a special meaning for the Bride and her grandmother.  Yellow is her favorite color and the Bridesmaid dresses are a a pinkish burgundy color so we added those in the watercolors.

We also wanted to carry out the food / recipe theme throughout the items and I really liked the way the Maid of Honor incorporated it into the text on the invitations.  We also decided to relate the donation aspect of this project back to food as well.  I will be donating 10% of proceeds to the North Texas Food Bank in honor of this Texan Bride-to-be!  The North Texas Food Bank’s mission is to pursue a hunger-free community.  The donation will help to provide 32 meals that will be delivered to children, seniors, and families within North Texas.  I am really happy to be able to make this donation and that it was made possible by such a wonderful celebration!

I truly loved making these and making sure every guests receives something that is hand made with thought and love.  Hope you enjoy them as well!
