I finally have the complete set of baby shower goodies up on my Etsy shop! It seems that so many people I know are having babies these days so I felt inspired to make a baby shower kit of sorts. When I hosted a friends shower last year I had such a blast but it was quite the challange to come up with all the details. Hopefully this set will make planning a little easier for some of you.

This set, fondly named “Li’l Tweet”, is just the beggining of what I hope to offer in my shop but to celebrate I wanted to host a little give away! One lucky winner will recieve a Li’l Tweet Stitch Kit in one of four colors: green, pink, yellow or blue.

*To enter, just leave a comment below with your first name and last initial and tell us what you would do with your very own Li’l Tweet. You have until 11:59 PDT Thursday, April 2, to enter. The winner will be selected randomly on April 3rd and announced on Twig & Thistle, Monday, April 6th! Good luck!

NOTE: THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED

Pictures from the baby shower…

To keep it all in the theme of green and white, all the food was a variation of those colors. The menu included chicken and egg salad tea sandwiches, edamame, pickles & olives and pita chips. The party was capped off with homemade coconut ice cream, a white cake with butter-cream frosting and a candle for little baby Seb!

A pic of the beautiful baby boy!!!

Congratulations Katie and Nico!

More details from the Baby Shower I hosted for my friend…

Inspired by a quiz card seen in Blueprint, I designed a quiz about Baby Sebastian. The guests filled in their answers and the person with the most correct won a box of color coordinated sweets! The Thank You notes were also letterpressed. Still more to come…



Baby Shower: Katie, Part 1

Thursday, December 11th, 2008

It was an honor to host my friend Katie’s baby shower this last summer. I have finally gotten around to collecting all the photos so I wanted share them.

Let me start off by saying that this was by far my favorite event to plan and design. Katie knew that she was having a baby boy and his name would be Sebastian Sanchez. I decided to celebrate the new baby and his beautiful parents by illustrating them as a little owl family. I thought it would be fun to play up this icon and use it throughout the whole system.

I letterpressed the invitations on a press we have at my office.The party favors were packaged in a white pillow box that I affixed a sticker to. Inside was a fabric pattern and batting so each guest could make their own Baby Sanchez doll! I printed the pattern on printable fabric sheets that I ran through my Ink Jet printer.

More details and pics of the shower to come, so stay tuned!
