Holiday Birth Announcements & Baby Shower Invitations

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

The holidays are a special time for everyone, but this particular holiday season will be different from the rest because, she’s expecting!  There’s nothing more exciting than a new addition to your family, and sharing that over Christmas is all that more special!

One of the newest trends in the baby world is having a holiday themed baby shower.  Seems a bit off the beaten path, but is a really fun and easy party planning idea, when you think about it.  Perfect for those hosting a shower through November – January, holiday baby showers will help you to add a little festivity into your already exciting event.

Need an invitation to set the scene?  This adorable holiday baby shower invitation on our left features a pink and red weaved patterned background.  “Please Join US!  HOLIDAY BABY SHOWER” is pre-printed at the top of the card in festive lettering, next to an expecting mommy-to-be.  She dons a long black gown with a feathery bottom trim and accessorizes with a red handbag, jewelry and a Santa hat, of course!  It’s perfect for the mom-on-the go or the fashionable expecting mommy-to-be.  When setting the scene for your shower, use a holiday color like red or green and then pair it with blue or pink to coordinate the baby’s gender.  Ask your guests to bring a “baby’s first Christmas” ornament.  You can even do a ‘wishing well’ type gift where instead of a well you use a ‘wishing tree’ and can attach rattles, bottles, diapers, pacifiers and all the little things your baby will need to a small Christmas tree.

If you’re not only expecting during the holidays, but actually have a due date very close to Christmas, you may want to start browsing our birth announcement and holiday birth announcement collection to prepare.  Many expecting parents will double-up with their holiday greeting card and birth announcement to create one festive and exciting holiday greeting card.  We have a plethora of digital photo holiday greeting cards which will work great for your holiday birth announcement.  Use a fun phrase like, “Wishing you joy, peace and new arrivals this holiday season” and then attach one of your newborn’s baby photos to the announcement.  Be sure to include a small detail at the bottom of the card with the baby’s important birth details including their birth date, weight and length.

If you have a due date very close to the holidays, and you’re worried that you won’t get your holiday birth announcements out on time, no need to worry.  At InvitationBox.com we offer pre-shipment options for your birth announcement envelopes.  For $13.95 you can browse for the perfect birth announcement now and even purchase the item.  We will then pre-ship your envelopes to you, so that you can have them all addressed and ready to go before the baby arrives.  Once your bundle of joy is here, send us your baby’s details and photograph and we’ll ship you the remainder of your order.  Simply stuff, seal and mail and you’ll be all set!
