We didn't have a specific theme for the party. We just knew that it was going to be a baby girl. So I went to my local digital scrapbook store, Scrap Orchard, for some inspiration. ;) I found this kit from Tracie Stroud and I loved the colors.....I especially love her designs for party inspiration. If you don't believe me, then check out this post.
So I grabbed this kit and started with my invitation. Here's my 5x7 invite (with edited text). I used a few different fonts that I had and I grabbed the colors from the kit and used some paper at the bottom of the invite.
Here's the printed invite. I used Persnickety Prints. I love that you can get envelopes with your prints.
I also made up these little 4x6 printables. I thought it would be fun to have some cards that guests could fill out with either a prayer or a word of encouragement for the mom and baby.
Then I made these little 3x4 inch food tags. I made a whole bunch of tags, put them all on one 8.5x11 sheet in Photoshop and then printed that sheet out on my home printer. Then I cut them out and folded them in half, easy-peasy (my kind of hybrid).
Here are a few more photos from the shower.

You can see the little banner I made below. I used my Mini Hybrid Banner Templates to make it.
|Since it was spring I got some fresh flowers that matched the invitations and put them in different sized jars all over the house.|
Thanks to Nicole for coordinating all the food and for all the friends who helped prepare it.
|And a big thank you to my sister Amanda for making a beautiful cake.|

I'm sure you can find some inspiration for a party from one of your digital scrapbook kits!
