Chalkboard Inspired Invitations : : Baby Shower & Holiday Cookie Exchange






Hello and Happy [almost] Thanksgiving!

I have been keeping pretty busy lately, and I am so excited about all of it! Design work, painting our new house, preparing for baby…not to mention sleeping terribly and having large amounts of heart burn : )

One of my good friends asked me to create an invitation for her Holiday Cookie Exchange that she has planned for next month! This party sounds so amazing, and it gives me great ideas for future holiday parties. See below for this fun and playful chalkboard invitation…

Holiday Cookie Exchange


I must have been feeling very chalkboard-esque lately, because in designing our baby shower invitation, I used it too! I created the mint “B” pacifier clip art (so it would match everything else perfectly…yes I am a bit particular) and I love the (now slightly overdone) gray and white chevron for the background!

I wish you and your families a great Thanksgiving holiday! Come back and see me soon!
