Shower me with Invites

It is official, one more thing is getting crossed off my GOALS list. Man, that feels good! I completed assembling, addressing and affixing all the invites for my friend Brook's baby shower. And they are sooo cuuute!!!! The end result below actually looks really similar to my make believe version but with softer pink and brighter green.

My blogging friend Emily recommended the bow - and it is adorable! She just hosted a shower of her own and I must say that she could do it for a living...she's that good. I would definitely recommend checking it out.

Props to my boy for cutting the ribbon and helping me stuff...dontcha just love it when men do that kinda sweet stuff? Just thinking about it gives me weak knees.

Oh and I wanted to share with you the envelopes as well. I am a big believer in that the wrapping helps make the gift. The envelopes here are just wrapping for this cutey pa tootie invite so I wanted to jazz em up a bit. I got the idea from Martha for the liner. Her internShe is good. Real good.
Now that the invites are out, the next step is securing rental chairs and linens for the tables. And I have to ask if my lovely sister will photograph the event with her new shmancy camera. Also need to brainstorm about a menu that will rock...it is a luncheon afterall.
Any suggestions? Any help? Please don't hesitate to put it in the comments OR you can email me - Ooh Ooh - yes I have established an email address for those of you that don't like to come outta the lurkin closet. Throw me a line here people!

Pita sandwiches or wraps, salads, and fruit is always a favorite

Hi Ya'll -

The invites definitely turned out better than I hoped and I think I will do envelope liners from here on!

The bows are really easy and I found a tutorial if you would like instructions.
