I made the invitations and giant pink paper poppies for the decor! I went a little crazy with this, but loved the chance to head to some of my favorite paper crafting stores (PaperSource and Angela's Happy Stamper in Reston, VA).
For the invitations, I used a poppy stamp from Impress Rubber Stamps.
|Supplies: Cardstock - Blossom (Paper-Source)|
Stamp - Poppy (Impress), Dots (Hero Arts), Sentiment (Stampin' Up)
Ink - Worn Lipstick (Ranger), Provincial Grey (Fresh Ink), Frost (Versamark Dazzle)
Twine - Divine Twine
For the poppies, I found this tutorial online. It was really simple and had so much impact! While the tutorial calls for art paper, I used wrapping paper from Paper Source (and a LOT of hot glue!).

I put some of the poppies on stems to put in vases.
And some on a ribbon to make a garland.

Everything came together so beautifully. The mom-to-be loved it!
