with my niece turning 2 and my nephew being baptized, my sister needed an invitation that merged two celebrations together. this garden inspired party came from the 2 peas in a pod invitation idea i had. these hand cut and handcrafted invitations resembled a pea pod shape, with the two little pea heads (images of my niece and nephew) being taken out to reveal the event information on each backside. the final piece was actually embellished with curly ribbon to represent the curly vines that are usually depicted with pea pods.
most of the time i get great responses and feedback from women regarding my invitations, but this time i actually had a man, my uncle, say, “it’s soooo cute!” now, that is the best reaction ever! when a man can ooh and ahh over an invitation and say how cute it is, that is when you know you did something right.
my sister and i asked my mom to create a little garden cake and she completely blew us away with this creation. i made little garden signs to label each little area and my mom added little garden tools to give it an even more realistic scene.
