Bee Themed Baby Shower Invitations & Favor Tags!

A few months ago, I was contacted by Melissa to design and create invitations and favor tags for her bee themed baby shower in March! I had created candyland birthday invitations for her daughter's first birthday last year, so it was a lot of fun creating a new design for Melissa again! She had a few different ideas to start out with, but in the end, we settled on a yellow and pink design, with gardenias and bees. Every element of the invitation was hand drawn in Adobe Illustrator, and I loved how everything came together!

The invitations were made of pearlescent white metallic paper, with hand glittered gardenias and bees, matched with pink metallic cardstock as the backing, as well as a pink metallic invitation envelope. At the shower, Melissa was planning on having little honey jars as favors, so I also created matching favor tags that she could tie onto the jars. The tag had the words "Thanks for bee-ing here" along with the baby shower date.

Melissa also came up with the cute phrase used on the invitation: "Heard the Buzz? A little honeybee is on her way!" Melissa, it was so much fun working with you on the invitation design again, and I wish you the very best with the new addition to your family!!
