Baby Shower Invitations

Soon the mommy-to-be’s home will be filled with baby furniture, a crying newborn and very busy parents. Before the little bundle of joy is brought into the world, why not celebrate with a baby shower and assist Mom in obtaining all the things she needs to help her baby play, learn and grow?

Planning a baby shower is a very caring and selfless thing to do for your family member or friend. It all begins with an invitation which will set the tone for your event. You may want to start by picking a theme that you will use to decorate your invitations and party favors.

Below are a few suggestions for baby shower themes:

Nursery rhymes
A to Z
Baby feet
Noah’s Ark
Solids and stripes
Cute as a button

After picking a theme, search through the many baby shower invitations to find the perfect invitation. You will find invitations with bottles, babies, ribbons, curls, pastels, pacifiers and bows – the possibilities are endless and there are many invitations to choose from in formal or casual styles. Be sure to choose an invitation that compliments your theme and portrays the formality of the shower. You do not want to choose a cartoon animal invitation for a very formal pastel themed shower.

Your invitation wording should also indicate the type of shower you are hosting – whether it is a couples or women’s shower, if there are any themes and if needed, where the mommy-to-be is registered. You may even want to include whether or not the mommy-to-be is having a girl or a boy and if their name has been chosen. If you indicate the baby’s name, be sure to make certain that this will not be changing. You do not want Grandma to embroider a blanket with the name “Sarah” if this will later be changed to “Rachel”.

Below are a few suggestions for invitation wording:
