A Royal Baby Shower

We recently had the privilege of designing a baby shower invitation for a royalty themed shower.
This concept excited us and seemed appropriate with all the talk of the
Duke and Duchess of Cambridge expecting their first baby this year as well!

The mother-to-be envisioned royal blue and gold in a sophisticated and classic design, with a high tea sort of feel.

The first layer is a square-shaped shimmer gold card stock.
The next layer (and it's sort of hard to see in the pictures), is a square card stock wrapped in a royal blue silk fabric--giving the invitation a richness that's not your every day invitation.
Fit for royalty, you might say :)

Matching royal blue envelopes were lined with shimmer gold paper.

We designed a "family crest" style motif as the focus for the top,
incorporating the family's last name initial.
The type styles were kept classic and sophisticated, with just the mother-to-be's name in a script font.
The whole invitation was wrapped in a sheer champagne ribbon.

The (royal) icing on the cake is the gold calligraphy embellishing each envelope, notifying the recipient of their official invitation to this "royal" affair.

We like to think an invitation such as this would be perfect for Kate Middleton herself
(if she was having a little prince, that is).
If she were having a princess, we might modify a few details here and there to give it slightly softer, more feminine feel, but still keeping with the timelessness and sophistication of a "royal" affair.
