Invites to a "Got Milk?" Baby Shower

I'm putting these up early mainly because I want an entire post directed to the shower itself.  I was up late one night and it came to me... a GOT MILK? baby shower.  I have seen cookies and milk parties, which are really cute, but I wanted to take a different type of spin on it with a mixture of vintage and modern fun with the emphasis on milk...because...isn't that just hysterical?

I had been leaning towards using EVITE invites for awhile because, well, it's super easy online and people tend to RSVP more.  But on the other hand, I felt the need to have something more tangible so she could place it in her baby book.  I haven't done mailed invitations in such a long time, so I really tried to put effort into making them unique.


I found an adorable "baby girl with bottle" print and scanned it in on my computer, then printed it out on these invitations that are made to look like grocery bags.



I searched forever for this baby bottle stamp and I think it added just the right touch.  Although the logo is quite modern, it made it feminine for a baby girl as well.


There is not an exact font made for the GOT MILK logo that I know of, but here is one that is very similar that I used instead.




There now!  It was so fun to make and I am pretty happy with the results!

I mean really, if I got one of these babies in the mail I would be like, "Freak ya, I'm coming!"

haha!

Great idea. I love milk anyway, so I guess there's still a baby in all of us milkys.
