I am a big believer that any fabulous eventstarts with a fabulous invite to set the tone!This one captured the soiree in spades!
I also really appreciate when any invite conceptis carried through to the envelope.Making getting an invite in  the mailfeel like a gift!
Each Soiree invite envelopewas hand water coloredand then stamped!Making for the perfect invite to this marvelous Baby Soiree!

The gorgeous Momma to be is Hannah Thomas.I have watched this beauty grow up for the last decadebecause she and my girl Ellishave been friendssince meeting at an art museumon an  eighth grade home school field trip.
To this day I still remember seeing her and her Mommafor the first timeand wanting to be friends right away!They both stood out so chic and fashionable.I loved homeschoolingbut most people who we methad not much interest in fashionSo Hannah and Christywere literally the fashion people we had been hoping to find!It was from this common interestnot only did a strong friendship grow betweenEllis and HannahbutChristy and I as well.

Everything at the shower was perfection!Hannah's husband Jarett built the low tablelong enough to fit all the guests!
Seats were finished off with floor pillowsatop a  jute rug  form Ikea.
Napkins were hand dyed to really enhance the look and carry through the party's styling theme.
