One of the great things about working at Paper Source, with tons of creative people, is the ability to celebrate our friends and co-workers’ life moments in meaningful ways. With baby showers, especially, it’s always fun to think of themes that really resonate with the mom-to-be. For this baby shower, we knew we wanted to have a celestial-themed bash that coordinated with her nursery motif. Since we’d already thrown one “stellar” baby shower, we wanted to make this one unique. We started by calling it a “meteor” shower with an emphasis on planets and the solar system.
For these invites we used Night Circle Cards and printed a band to look like a planetary ring on Sunshine Text Weight Paper. Before attaching the band, we made a template with cutouts where we wanted striations to be. We put the cutout on top of the circle cards and used ink pads to rub directly onto the card. Once dry, we attached the middle band. The band was secured on the back with a 4″ round label, which was printed with more shower details.
Since the shower was in the afternoon, we went with a fun “Neptune’s Nacho Bar” and light snacks and desserts. We labeled everything with a mis of place cards and “punny” names.
For decor we punched stars out in a variety of solar shades on text weight paper. Then we used double-sided tape to attach them to Blue & White Baker’s Twine with 1.25″ Round Labels for added interest.
We love giving mom something sentimental to take home. We handed out extra star cutouts and asked attendees to write down their wishes for baby. Then we collected them in an A7 Box Mailer that was covered with fine paper; something cute to keep on a bookshelf.
