I am finally getting around to posting about the Bridal Shower I gave for my sister-in-law to be. I wanted to host a shower for our side of the family for her, and since she was having a couple other showers, I wanted it to have a little different angle. So I went with the “Kitchen Shower” theme.
With the invitations, I also sent out blank recipe cards. Guests were asked to come with a favorite recipe. The idea is that the gift given would relate to the recipe. It was a lot of fun – some people went all out with the theme – for example, a pan, spatula, spoon, brownie mix, and recipe to make ultimate brownies. It was really fun to see all the kitchen gadgets. Griddle with a pancake recipe, cookie sheets with a cookie recipe, and on and on.
If you remember, Amber is the one who helped me with my blog revamp – I told her I wanted a background that was turquoise with dots, and she just MADE one – I didn’t even know you could do that. She also made my Bee – from scratch. Along with the logo, buttons, etc. So I started to put together a recipe card when I thought, she probably wants to make her own. So I turned that task over to her and she whipped this up:
Cute, right? The border mimics kitchen tile. And I love the yellow – it inspired me to have all the food be lemon-themed (more on that in a day or two). It’s a 4×6 card and I had them printed at a printing company because I wanted 50, but if you just wanted a few you could print them out at home on cardstock.
I checked with Amber, and she is willing to share her Recipe Card Design with each of you – for free!! For your free download, just head over here: http://www.4shared.com/photo/91v7rnpp/Recipe.html
Amber has her degree in graphic design and works for a newspaper creating ads, etc. She also does some freelance stuff on the side, and I’m sure she would enjoy branching into blog design. If you happen to need a graphic designer, email me (mandybeez at gmail) and I’ll pass her contact info along.
Bridal Shower decor to come tomorrow, stay tuned!
