Lady Magnolia's Shower

I had the honor(along with two of my best friends, April and Rachael) of throwing a baby shower for our dear friend, Nicole. The baby's name, Magnolia, was a secret. So for the invitation design, I used abstract magnolias as a teaser. Only the mom and a few others recognized the symbolism, which was sweet. 

In addition to the invitations, I also took on a paper craft project and handmade paper magnolia flowers (courtesy of Paper Source) to decorate the food table. Those took me about 4 hours to finish, and I had glue on my fingers for days after, but well worth it. For part of her gift, I also handmade a baby mobile with trees and owls. (pictures of the flowers and mobile to come soon)

The Menu:
* Fennel Salad- famous recipe from Bracken
* Cajun Crab Dip- Nicole's favorite:)
* Green Apple Slices with Cinnamon Caramel Dip
* Strawberries and Green Grapes
* Ham Mini-Sandwiches (Rachael's Recipe)

The Drinks:
* Cucumber Mint Water
* Pomegranite & Raspberry Izzes & Club Soda
* Sweet Tea

The Game:
* Baby Name Mania

The Favors:
* Personalized Candles

The date was chosen, the venue locked and the beautiful log cabins assigned...all that was left were the invitations. Aaron and Jaesoon are an extraordinary couple. He is a chef at the Ritz-Charlton and she was working at the Ritz in the Korean exchange 

The invitations were designed to intermingle the cultures of the bride and groom.
