guess whooo!

Guess whooo's having a baby? (hint: it's not me!)

My good friend Jeanne is having her first baby this June. I may not be much of a baker, but I can make a mean baby shower invitation. I decided to have some fun with the scratch-offs and woodland creatures. Each of the invitations requires the recipient to scratch the tree stump to reveal who the shower is for. They were mailed in gorgeous chocolate brown envelopes from Paper Source with a shiny penny inside for scratching!

Isn't this cream felt-finish paper gorgeous? It handled the ink beautifully, and gave the invitations a lovely, natural quality. Delish!
As for the cupcakes, I'll be commissioning the ever-so-talented Diana Gawet from DG Cupcakes to make these charming treats. I can't wait to see them!

Have a hoot today!


  1. Lindsay, these invites are adorable!!!! I am a sucker for anything paper as well and I just love your blog! Interestingly enough, guess whoooo else is having a baby??? Me! I'm due in October but still haven't made an official announcement yet since it is still a bit early. I see my midwife in 2 weeks and I just can't wait! I'm hoping we have a little girl! :)

  2. Makes me want to have another one. Oh wait, they don't give baby showers for thirds.

    The point? Beautiful work, as always.

  3. Thanks, Debbie and The Mrs! @Debbie: Congratulations to you!! @The Mrs: No baby showers for thirds? How interesting...because isn't it also true that you don't get showers in general once you have your third? ;)

  4. well love the owl invitations and cupcakes the owl is my fave bird lol i will have to hire you to make my wedding invites when i get married in the future lol!

  5. No showers or bathroom time in general. Hm. Better rethink that third baby thing.

  6. Those invitations are soooooo cute! Love them! Can't wait to make the cupcakes to match :)
