When I decided to throw my friend’s baby shower I immediately started searching Pinterest and Google for inspiration.  I quickly fell in love with all the details of “Little Man” aka “Mustache” baby shower / birthday parties I found.

With the theme chosen the search for an invitation began.  Although initially the plan was to purchase pre-made invitations, I soon decided to try my hand at designing my own invitation.  I figured if the design wasn’t nailed down in time I could always order one of the many available options.

The invite was created PhotoShop and the mustache graphics purchased from ShutterStock.  It took a number of iterations, but the end result was exactly what I had envisioned!  Although I had successfully DIY’ed our wedding invitations, I wasn’t sure I would have success with baby shower invites.  Before revealing the final product to my husband, parents and sister I made them promise to give me their brutally honest opinions.  With their stamp of approval I moved forward with ordering the baby shower invites from Overnight Prints.

When they arrived in the mail I was ecstatic and hopeful the printed version would meet my expectations.  I was very pleased with the quality of the paper, printing and turnaround time of my order!  I kind of wish they looked a little shiny and/or glossy, but the matted is probably for the best.

In an effort to save myself time, as well as spare everyone my horrible handwriting, I reused my DIY wedding calligraphy directions to print the address and return address on all the envelopes.  The font for the addresses is Lucida Calligraphy, which is a free font.

The invitations/envelopes are completed and in the mail.  Now it’s time to focus on finalizing the decorations, menu and shower games for the shower!!

So I mustache you … what do you think of the DIY baby shower invitations?

Happy DIY!
