Fun And Exciting Baby Shower Invitations

Jun 13, 2008
Everyone loves a baby shower. Baby clothes, baby accessories, baby books and frames, diapers, beautifully wrapped baby gifts. And nothing makes a baby shower better than the perfect baby shower invitation. A unique baby shower invitation is a precious keepsake, something to treasure in a baby book. The baby shower invitations you'll find will set the stage for the most memorable day.

Where To Begin

Baby shower invitations should be sent at least three weeks early to allow people to make plans and purchase gifts. Although etiquette books of the past have frowned upon including registry information on a shower invitation, it has increasingly become more acceptable. If you're still not sure or you simply don't have room to add it on the invitation, think about including a custom printed enclosure card with your baby shower invitations. The registry information can be printed right on the card.

Baby showers are not anything like as formal as a wedding, or even a baptism, so the form of a baby shower invitation is really a matter of personal taste and choice. If it is normal amongst your circle of friends to have formal written or printed invitations for a party, there is now reason why the baby shower invitation should not be subject to the same. Conversely, if you think it can all be arranged, with everyone being notified and attended, just by telephone and word of mouth, then that is fine also.

Using Your Imgination

Here's an idea a chocolate lover. You could draw a baby shower invitation that has a silhouette image of a pregnant woman in chocolate brown with a background of purple punch and green bean polka dots. Your personalized text will be printed in chocolate brown. Matching thank you cards, baby shower mint tins, gift tag stickers and return address labels could also be created in order to match the chocolate theme.

If a theme was not clear after talking with the mother to be and other family members another easy thing to do is base the party on the season. For example a fun summer themed baby shower might be tied to ice cream! A unique invitation can be shaped like an ice cream cone again with the details on the back.

The biggest way to ensure uniqueness is to be creative. Create your own baby shower invitations. You might not have the tools or the inspiration to do this though. You therefore need to be guided by other invitations. Keep in mind a theme you want to use. Decide on the make and the colors that you would want to see in the invitation. All these must be within the wish of the parents to be.

Thinking Outside Of The Box

Create a list of practical treats and help the new mom will treasure and appreciate during the first few weeks with the new arrival. These can include assistance with family meals, sending her for a beauty treatment, arranging time away for the new parents, offers to baby sit while she has some quiet time with a chocolate and a magazine, doing some cleaning for her, or a collection of bath treats.
