When I think about a "Special Delivery" baby shower with a postal theme, I think of craft paper (paper bag) accents everywhere. Craft paper envelopes, little brown packages--and if for a girl (which ALL my friends are expecting), accented with different hues of pink, as well as black and white. If for a boy, the pinks could easily be swapped out for blues, turquoise, etc. Here are some little color swatches to help you see my vision.
I also see lots of cute accordion flowers appearing in bouquets, in banners, etc. Love this one from Lil' Luna.
And THIS! This combo of pennant banners, and accordion flowers, and craft paper, and book pages, and pink--well this is like straight from my dreams. Better than I could have dreamed actually. Can't you just see this stuff mixed in with cute envelopes everywhere and mailboxes?? Major props to The Crafting Chicks for this adorable decor.
Of course, what would a "Special Delivery" theme be without brown paper packages tied up with string? Wouldn't these make the cutest favors? This adorable picture is from here.
And lastly-- mailboxes! I'd love some cool rustic ones. Guests can write letters with advice for mom, or even letters for baby to read as he or she grows up. I love these ones on candlesticks from Life with the Goodlins.
And there you have it-- my brain as best as I can blog it for you in the early stages of this super fun theme. If it materializes in real life some time, I will definitely show you how it turns out.
And lastly for today, check out The Stationery Place for the final post on this years FUN Valentine Swap. Play along next year!!
