Bridal Shower | Invitation

I really enjoyed designing the invitation for my sister-in-laws bridal shower that I hosted this weekend!  I wanted to keep the design simple and stick to the facts, with some added flair.  These little invitations however, brought out a very frustrated and panicked side of me... 

I like how the invitations turned out, but the challenge was finding a place to print them on Kauai.  The options were limited and the print quality was not what I had hoped for.  To make matters even more frustrating, I spent an entire day driving around (and calling) various stores looking for 5x7 envelopes.  It was when I was at the post office asking if they knew where I could find the envelopes, that a women said, "Ace Hardware has 5x7 envelopes."  Oh right, why didn't I think of that in the first place?  Sure enough, Ace Hardware had the envelopes.  Ah, the "challenges" of life on an island... ;)

  3. That's adorable! I can only imagine how frustrating it must be to plan an event when you're not familiar with the area. The design is super cute though :)
