Bridal Shower Invitation :: Love Boat Theme

I apologize in advance if this post puts The Love Boat theme in your head for the rest of the day… however this theme was too cute to pass up! This is an invite I did for a flient (friend+client=flient) who is hosting a Love Boat themed bridal shower next month. I always love getting ‘orders’ from this particular flient because she always has such fun parties! When she said “think Love Boat! Think cruise!” my head went straight to vintage cruise-liner posters. In addition to adding a heart and putting this bride-to-be’s new last name on the boat……the wording was super nauti-cool as well.  Join us for a voyage on The Love Boat as we celebrate ___________’s cruise into marriage.
Setting sail on _________ at _______
The (host’s) dock (then address)
Hosted by cruise directors _____________
RSVP & Registry
Add a “Ship to:” (hee hee) on the envelope and you’re all set! I design on a Mac using the Adobe CS4 programs and print all the invites I make on a HP Deskjet 9800. This particular invite was size A9. My favorite paper in the world is from a place in New York called Paper Presentation. I buy their Dutch Felt in bulk and use it for just about everything! I think it makes homemade invites look just a little bit more professional. There’s a great tooth to the paper and if I could, I might just marry it I love it so much. (It doesn’t really print so well with laser printers though.)I printed the back of the invite in big red & white stripes and lined the envelope, which was from Paper Source,with wrapping paper. I’m not sure where this red & white wrapping paper was from but if you’re looking for cute liners, check out Container Store’s selection. They always have great (and tons) of wrapping paper!
The gals hosting this shower always do such an insane job of throwing parties. Maybe I’ll convince them to share their pictures with me so I can share them with you next month! Stay tuned! I don’t think this Love Boat’s voyage is over quite yet!
