GCD: Welcome to Our Tribe – Arrow Themed Baby Shower [Invitation Design]

Branding will always be my favorite part of design, but everyone once in a while it’s fun to be able to let go and design a single invitation. Using the concept of arrows I wanted to keep everything long and narrow. The tribal feel is simple, playful, and all boy! ;)

I wish I could take credit for the overall vision, but none of this would have happened without our good friend Sarah. She put so much time and love into creating such a special afternoon.

Some of my favorites decor elements and activities included:

  • Blessing Arrows: Guests were invited to take pieces of paper and write blessings on them. We then wrapped the paper around the arrows and stuck them on a little tree.
  • Customized Baby Name Print: Like the big “R” print with “Rhys’” name below it? You can make your own as a free (+ the cost of a frame) and easy shower gift here.
  • Trail mix Bar: Loved this idea! Create your own trail mix out of your favorite peanuts, chocolate chips, and dried fruits. So good!
  • Diaper Decorate Activity (not shown): Using sharpies everyone wrote a funny or encouraging note on a package of diapers. What a unique way to lift mom and dad’s spirits in the wee (he, he!) hours of the night! ;)
  • Rhys’ Reece’s: Guess how many there are? Hard to believe there were over 200! Yep, I was WAY off and didn’t get to go home with the giant box of chocolate. :(
  • Baby Belly Henna Tattoo: For the “after party” we all hung around, drank wine, and watched Taryn with Spirited Doula Services create a beautiful piece of art right on our momma’s baby bump.

It was a wonderful day full of love and celebration for this new little bundle of joy. We can’t wait to meet you baby Rhys!

    What did the tree with the arrows/blessings look like?! Do you have a picture?

      Hi Emily, Unfortunately I didn’t get a great photo of it. If you look at the second collage of photos: http://bringingdesignhome.com/files/2013/09/rhys-shower5.jpg you can see a portion of it in the bottom left corner. Basically it’s just a large vase with sticks sticking out of it. People just placed the arrows in the tree wherever they wanted too once they were finished writing their blessing. Hope that helps!

        Ok thank you! Where did you get your arrows?

          Those were handmade. The middle are dowel rods and the ends are foam arrow heads. Good luck! :)
