A baby shower at the Willows Lakehouse!

This past weekend I had the pleasure of throwing a baby shower for my sister-in-law at the Willows Lakehouse. It was the perfect location. Not only did it accomodate all the adults, there was plenty of room indoors & out to entertain the children that attended. Check out their website, it may be the perfect spot for your next family reunion, vacation, business event, wedding &/or reception. We live about a half hour from the Willows & it is a perfect weekend getaway… Not too far away, yet you have the entire lakehouse, not to mention the lake to yourselves! It is a steal of a deal!

Back to the baby shower! Amanda decided on a ‘zoo’ theme…
I found some great images of a giraffe, hippo & elephant. I stylized the images then used them as inspiration for all the details. I designed the invite to be flat & fit in a #10 biz envelope using a cool giraffe for the main focus. I also designed labels for the kraft brown envelopes & a registry card featuring a handsome blue hippo. The registry card was wrapped nicely in a tiny vellum envelope using a spiral paperclip to attach it. See pics below…

Baby Shower Tips…
1. Use a piece of string as a clothesline and hang up your ‘gifts’ for fun decor. (i.e. onesie, socks, stuffed animals etc)
2. I searched the internet for baby shower mad libs and found a great one that we just modified to fit our mommy to be. It was great fun!
3. Save your address list for the Mommy to be to have for her Thank yous.
4. Thank you notecards make a great gift!
