  • Simple Elegance in Warm Colors By Kim Joya Photography

    Capture the very essence of a moment and immortalize it for years to come

    I have been photographing for as long as I can remember. Growing up in Palm Springs, CA I would encourage my best friends into modeling for me in abandoned houses, railroad tracks, scenic backgrounds like windmills, you know the basic stuff. The desert was my life and it was all I knew. It wasn't until I left to Los Angeles that I really became exposed to a much denser population of people. I became obsessed with capturing random, natural moments instead of posing my subjects. I have always felt that there is a rawness to human emotion when people are unaware they are being observed and I fell in love with that concept so most of my work is based on natural candid moments as well as the occasional posed presentation.

    Mustache baby shower theme using our mustache baby shower themed shower card. At Basic Invite there is nothing we love more than to see how our baby shower invitations are used to help create the perfect baby shower.  So we wanted to show you this real baby shower and hope it will give you some great ideas for your own showers.

    This shower started off with the little man baby shower invitation which is perfect for the mustache baby shower theme, it can be found here.  The little man invitation is great because it can be personalized to fit just about any color color scheme.invite-n-cupcakes

    Mason Jar Drinks The mason jars filled with apple juice is a really cute touch and it is something you can do pretty inexpensively.  The hardest part is finding the lids and the cute paper straws to go in them but we have already done the research for you and you can find the links below for all the decorations used at the shower.

    Paper Straws: Pack of 25 – $4.35 Daisy Cut Lids: 12 Count - $9.18

    Cupcakes Every baby shower should have cupcakes in my humble opinion.  The reason for this is that they are so versatile with dozen of different cupcake wrappers you can find a cute wrapper to perfectly match your theme.

    Cupcake Wrappers - $3.99 to $5.99

    watermelon-decorBaby Carriage I love the décor that was used especially the watermelon baby carriage.  Even though this was used for a boy baby shower the baby carriage is very gender neutral and can easily be used at any baby shower.  Surprisingly the watermelon carriage can be made it about 30 min.

    Here is a step-by-step video how to make the baby carriage.

    Chocolate Mustache Treats What really mak es the whole décor in my opinion are the chocolate mustaches.  I know these can be purchased pre made but I would recommend making them yourself and save a ton.   If you buy them pre made it will cost you around $16 per dozen, so with a little work you will be able to make almost 100 at that price.

    Mustache Molds – $4.34 Lollipop Stick: 100 count – $8.88

     Onesie Clothesline Babies can never have enough onesies as they go through 3-4 different wardrobe changes each day.  So make sure to that in your shower you include a personalized onesie.

    Yesterday, the life of a valued business partner and friend of Basic Invite was taken in a tragic motorcycle accident.  Marvell's work was an inspiration, his example legendary and his generosity unmatched.  We met Marvell at an awards ceremony last year, where he won the title of "Utah's Best Wedding Photographer", he was quick to offer a helping hand and has referred us many a customer over the past year.  He will be missed.
