Oh, la la! Amy's Baby Shower

My dear friend Amy and her husband Jake will be welcoming their daughter, Avery, into the world in 8 short weeks.  I, along with several other of Amy's girlfriends coordinated her baby shower and decided to go with a French theme. It turned out so darn cute I had to share.
This is the invite. Click to zoom and read the poem penned by Lianne Philips (the other half of Jordan Philips).

Amy kept saying how sad it was that Avery would be at her shower, but wouldn't remember it, so I created a time capsule for her. We all wrote notes and Amy will add a few more things (like photos from the shower, Avery's coming-home-from-the-hospital outfit, a letter from Jake, etc.) before sealing it up. And they'll keep it sealed until Avery's 5th birthday! 
A custom set of 'merci beaucoup' cards.
And a shower book - to use for documenting gifts and their givers. Another piece to add to the time capsule!
Celebrating Avery's new life with a tea party was the perfect way to spend Saturday morning. Cheers to many more tea parties for Avery (with her stuffed animals and girlfriends) in the future!

Side note: Baby shower invites like these and other baby-esque things will be available at hi, friend. soon!
