This one goes into the "You learn something new everyday" category. I've been seeing (and admiring) it all over the place on lovely lattice-look four-sided badges in the center of invites and backgrounds in every color and for every type of party imaginable but I never knew what is was called.
Turns out the name is Quatrefoil and it's been around for centuries, only lately it's been regaining popularity at breakneck speeds.
What is Quatrefoil?
In Latin the word means "four leaves" and it can be used to describe many different but similar 4-lobed floral-type shapes. The featured bridal shower invitation uses Quatrefoil in the hot pink and white background design as well as a "barbed" version for the center "badge" where all of the party information is seen.
Quatrefoil is not just for invites either, the design has been used on everything from clothing to architecture throughout the ages.
Its history is long and its roots are believed to be in Islamic architecture.
It's also another name for the four-leaved clover shape leading to a belief that it brings luck.
You'll find more examples and an informative interesting read about the history of this fancy design HERE.
In honor or St. Patrick's Day, I bring you a pretty shamrock and daisy bridal shower invitation.
These are perfect for a bride who is getting married on or near the holiday but will also work at anytime of the year for someone who's proud of their Irish heritage.
The artwork on this invite features a gorgeous grouping of green (but, of course!) shamrocks with adorable white and yellow daisies tossed into the mix.
All of your important party information is also written in green script writing.
They measure a big 5" x 7" and come complete with a white envelope.

I just received the April 2014 edition of Martha Stewart Living and low and behold, she was featuring an adorable baby shower idea that I just had to share with you.
The theme is called A Babe in the Woods and it features sweet but sophisticated whimsical woodland animals and critters of all sorts.
In true Martha style, in the article, she's created a magical combination of cute cookies, cakes, food, table decorations and favor ideas.
It truly is an amazing idea for a fun spring or fall baby shower for a modern mommy to be. It's adorably cute without being over the top cutsie.
I fell so in love with the idea that I went ahead and created a new Pinterest board at Seasonal Showers for it where I'm busy pinning everything in sight with adorable baby animals on it.

Babe in the Woods Baby Shower
When it comes to pregnancy, those of us in the know are fully aware of how uncomfortable those last few weeks can be. We all know that towards the end of the pregnancy, bloating is at it's worst making it harder to get around.
Sure, everyone wants to see her belly at its biggest but waiting too late into the pregnancy can make it difficult for mom to maneuver. If you want the mommy-to-be to be feeling her best and able to really enjoy all of the festivities, it's important to hold the baby shower early during the third trimester.
Planning the shower a little on the early side also reduces the stress on everyone worried about the baby making an early entrance which could easily turn your well-planned shower into a Sip and See or even worse an empty chair where the woman of the hour is supposed to be while she instead spends the day in the delivery room... completely missing all of the fun.
An early shower also gives the expectant parents plenty of time to prepare, put together and put away all of the wonderful gifts they'll receive because of your thoughtfulness, party planning skills and loving friends and family who attend... leaving them plenty of time to gather anything else they might need afterwards.
If you're looking for a totally unique gift for a bridal shower, wedding or special anniversary, you need to check out the Lover's Mug collection at Zazzle.
These 8 oz (16 oz combined) ceramic mugs fit perfectly together and have adorable heart-shaped handles that add to the romantic fun.
There are literally hundreds of different designs to choose from and they're all comfortably priced.
The sweet I do. Me too. set featured here is one of my favorites because it looks almost like the words were hand-written on the cups. It's a simple design and would be a super cute way for couples to share their morning coffee along with memories of their most special day.
Here's a few more of my personal favorites for your viewing pleasure:
As I said above, there are tons more unique and personalized mug sets to browse through
so you can find one that's a perfect match for your favorite couple's taste and personality.

This adorable baby shower bookplate design is coming to you hot off the presses. I just created them today.
These 2" x 3 3/4" labels are sold 8 to a 8.5" x 11" sheet and feature a fun baby clothesline design.
They're easy to personalize with baby's name and there's plenty of space provided for your guests to write a personal message for the child using a permanent marker.
This is the perfect addition to a bring-a-book theme baby shower, or any shower. You can send one off to each intended guest, or provide the stickers at the shower to be filled out by each guest who brings a book instead of a card to the party.
This is a wonderful way to grow baby's library while also creating amazing memories for you in the future as you read each story and note to your child.

Looking for a fun book to bring for baby? Here's a few suggestions.
Please pardon a bit of shameless bragging as I present to you my most popular product. My Elegant Pink or Blue, We Love You shirt has been selling like hotcakes ever since I created it.
I think its so popular because it's a fun way to say that whether you're having a boy or a girl doesn't matter at all; you'll love the baby no matter what.
The creative is quite simple with pink, blue and gray lettering. It can be worn by either gender because it's cute without being too cutsey, if you know what I mean.
Shown here on a men's basic tee, the design is available on 92 different styles including sizes from infant through adult 6xl and most importantly on maternity styles for the mommy-to-be.
The design works well for everyone from the expectant parents to the expectant brother, sister, auntie, uncle, grandparents and even best friends who are impatiently awaiting the new bundle of love.
And this shirt doesn't have to be saved just for the Gender Reveal. It can be worn all through the pregnancy too.
As shown, as of today, it sells for just $15.95. Different styles will cost extra.

The History of Bridal Showers
Did you know that the custom of throwing a bridal shower dates back to the time when dowries were popular? Friends of the woman to be wed began giving what is now known as a bridal shower to compensate women who came from poor families who couldn't afford a proper dowry, or for a woman whose father didn't approve of the marriage and refused to pay.
