Peanut Favors & Bunting.

April 16, 2010

Last month a friend asked me to help out with some of the decorations for a mutual friend’s baby shower. The only direction I had was that it was elephant-themed with a blue & green color scheme, the same theme the mama-to-be was using to decorate her little boy’s nursery. With that, I came up with these simple & easy peanut favors.

I designed the baby elephant labels & hand-calligraphed each bag. Threw together some kraft bags, baker’s twine, Japanese tape, and of course peanuts! And there you have it — easy peasy favors that don’t break the bank.

Also had to make my trademark bunting banners, this time in blue & green felt. Cut & assembled these while listening in on a conference call for work. Ah, the perks of working from home. :]

P.S. After 8 months of commuting to San Diego for work, I am now officially working from home (for the most part). And loving every bit of it. Praise the good Lord.

    You have such beautiful calligraphy! Did you a talent for calligraphy or did you practice a lot? I’d like to have better calligraphy.

    where did you get those bags? what sizes? I ask since the quality of paper looks better than that of regular brown paper 1lb lunch bag-type. Please help! Thanks in advance!

    By the way, of course, I love this!!!
