When Elizabeth was tasked with honoring her bestie with a baby shower, she knew Tie That Binds was the place to start. Inspired by the surprise that would be the baby’s gender, Elizabeth wanted a shower invitation that would set the tone for the entire shower. It needed to feel soft and luxurious, not too feminine, and uniquely sweet, just like the mother-to-be. What resulted was a luxurious watercolor lamb stationery suite with golden envelope liners, a monogrammed laurel motif, and the sweetest lamb you ever did see illustrated by the super-talented Hadley Hutton.
Elizabeth flexed her planning expertise and coordinated thoughtful food, decor, and even a pianist to play during the shower. Her mother graciously offered to host at their home in South Tampa, Florida. Positioned on a gorgeous lake and surrounded by lush trees and Spanish moss, they arranged for a professional set designer to drape over 60 yards of airy linen on their sunny porch. For the adorable guava jelly favors, Elizabeth enlisted the help of her father who has grown the fruit in his own orchard for nearly 10 years. Paired with the matching signage, favor stickers, hand-made bunting, shower game stationery, and day-of styling help from Tie That Binds, the result was a stunning shower that was exactly what she had imagined for her dear friend.
