baptism invitations

blue and green baptism invitation

weird coincidence, y’all – every stationery project i have lined up to show you guys this week is blue and green.  how very accidentally springy of me!  i suppose it is april after all, home of showers that bring may flowers.  and are those showers alive and kicking or what?!  wow.  we’ve had some real doozies in georgia so far.  the storms make me a little nervous because we do have a lot of {healthy} trees surrounding our house….and that’s just something that would happen to us – close and move into a house and have a big tree fall on it immediately afterwards.  knock on wood.

to kick off the big BLUE AND GREEN WEEK, i have a darling baptism invitation for a little boy to show you.  my client was actually my boss at my second “real” job out of college, the one i found when i moved back to atlanta from san diego.  it was so fun to get back in touch with her!  gosh – i love facebook.  anyway, she and her husband just had a precious little boy who recently got baptized and were in need of some invitations for the luncheon afterwards.  we decided to use a blue and green double-sided paper from smock and used the cute lion side to line the envelopes…and the other patterned side to use as the backer behind the invitation.

we wrapped satin ribbon around the backer to give the invitation an extra little punch of green.

roar.  back with more green and blue tomorrow!

invitation pricing

while we’re on the subject of parties…for the longest time, i’ve been quoting all projects on a case by case basis, getting to know exactly what a client needs before providing a price.  and i’m glad to say i’m finally ‘with it’ enough to have concrete pricing done for flat printed party invitations!  flat printing, in my opinion, is wonderful for invitations because you can use as many colors as you wish, and they are always printed on 100 lb. paper so they’re nice and thick on their own.  i’ve been doing loads of baby shower, baptism, birthday party (big people as well as little), engagement party and bridesmaid luncheon invitations and i l-o-v-e it.  getting anything ready for a party is fun to me, so i get all into it and i’m sure my clients think i’m probably going to crash the soiree by the time we’re done.  maybe one day i will, i mean i have all of the info already (kidding!!!!).  alright, here is pricing for invitations! 

it’s more of a menu of options…feel free to mix and match as you please.

- flat printed invitation on 100 lb. paper (white or cream) with envelope color of your choice: $3/each

little boy baptism invitations

i just ADORE a sunday church service with a baptism.  i always get a little misty, something about seeing those sweet innocent babes in their pristine white gown, the preacher talking about how they truly are a gift from God, ahhhh.  sends me searching my purse for a hanky!  yesterday we had twin girls get baptized at our church service - and our preacher set them in their double stroller (he usually carries babies he’s baptizing) when he showed them off to the congregation – thought he had too much of a handful to hold them.  it was hilarious watching them being strolled down the aisle.

our friend michelle reached out to me a couple of months ago for baptism invitations for her newest little boy, henry.  it was so fun working with her – we did a departure from the classic script fonts she told me she usually chooses, and instead used a looser, more non-traditional script.  i think the mixture of that script font, the gorgeous blue & grey damask print she chose for a liner, and the grey grosgrain ribbon wrapped around the invitation ended up being the perfect combination for a fresh keepsake for her little one’s baptism!

michelle, i hope the day was beautiful and special!!
