{Frosting Friday} Bright & Colorful Summer Wedding Shower

As we approach Labor Day weekend, we come to the bittersweet realization that this is the "unofficial" last weekend of summer (although in Southern California, summer is far from over ;)

It's hard to believe we're already going to be packing up the beach towels and sun hats, for safe keeping until next year. If you know us, though, we can't help but feel a little excited at the thought of apples, baking, falling leaves...we love all things fall!

Our blog will be filled with fall-themed posts and holiday inspiration soon enough, so we thought we'd take the opportunity today to feature a bright summer wedding shower invitation we created this year, along with a few of our favorite summer-y invites.

One of our lovely couples is getting married in a couple of weeks. Soledad & Eric approached us to do their save the dates (which we'll feature shortly), and they had a couple's shower a few weeks ago. They wanted something bright, cheerful, and representative of the warm season we're in, and something unique to them.
We decided to do a non-traditional circle invitation, complete with bright hues of chartreuse, fuchsia, and aqua.

We created two different choices: one with the blue floral border on the actual invitation, and one with a blue card stock matting, with the floral print watermarked.

Which one would you choose? :)

We created these tags for a different client recently, but we thought they'd coordinate beautifully with Soledad & Eric's invitation, and make a lovely dessert table display.

And how perfect would these cookies by Glorious Treats be for this shower?


Gorgeous! We're totally in love.
You could even have these made on a stick, and have them coming out of a flowerpot "vase" to give the feel of a bright summer bouquet.


Summer, we're missing you already!

Grab something cold to drink & enjoy a look at some of our favorite summer-inspired invites:

Or how about this margarita-themed bachelorette party? Suddenly I'm craving chips & salsa!

And don't forget our paradise-in-a-box invitation...

So whatever you do this weekend, make sure you take a moment to enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of summer!


And we'll see you next week as we look towards all things fall!

Have a wonderful weekend :)
