We wanted to embrace the meaning of her name, London, with a contemporary edge. We also wanted a picnic in a park that encouraged a relaxed, family and couple friendly atmosphere.
We already knew London was a girl, but we wanted to stay gender-neutral. The design inspiration was how a county-fair in a park in London would feel like.
A lot of color! London's nursery theme is based on Antonio Gaudi...that says it all. Our decorating style is eclectic and diverse. We like to combine and pair different travel experiences.
The invite and shower favors were all done at home, hand-done, on an inkjet printer. The shower monster doll prizes were hand-sewn (I made 12 of these!). These dolls also had their own identity with stories attached. It was a hit.
The invite. It was the first creation that started it all!
Give yourself time, time, time. It took me a long while to cut and place stickers just for the tea cups. I spread out the production and didn't try to do it in a few days. I didn't have to plan to critically but made sure I did something everyday.
