Hot Unique Baby Shower Invitations

Aug 17, 2007
Are you planning on putting together a baby shower for a close friend or family member that is going to have a baby soon? This can be a fun event and a very memorable way to show your appreciation for the expectant mother.

Typically you will want to send out baby shower invitations a few weeks before the event. This makes sure that all of your guests get invited and know the time and place to come to the shower. Invitations are very important because they will set the mood and tone for the event. It is therefore best to come up with a unique baby shower invitation to get things started on the right foot.

Sure you could save time and just have a professional printer make the invitations for you. However you will not end up with unique and personalized invitations this way. So if you want the shower to be something that is extra special then go with making your own unique wedding invitations.

Theme
First and foremost you will want to have a theme chosen. This should happen before anything else. It is often useful to consult with the expectant mother about her hopes and dreams for the baby shower. Often together you can come up with a great theme that will be very fitting.

Graphics
Next you will want to think about some of the graphics that you will use for the invitation. Again this will depend largely on your baby shower theme. It is very easy to find graphics online. These can easily be imported to your graphics program and then arranged to make a flatter invitation.

Paper
The type of paper you use for the paper baby shower invitations is very important also. The higher quality paper that you can find the better your invitations will look. For example if you print on a simple white copier paper this will not look as high quality as heavy bond paper with a slight nap to it and rough edges. Paper that is embossed, embellished with dried flowers or has some type of handmade feel to it will really express the quality

Embellishments
Another thing that you can easily add to a baby shower invitation to make it unique are little embellishments. You can find these in most major arts and craft stores. Possibly some ribbon, a fun stamp, wax seal or even a little trinket. Any of these ideas can embellish the baby shower invitation and make it really stand out and again set the mood for the shower.

Season
One last consideration that you might want to think about before creating your invitation is the season or time of year that you will be sending out the invitations. Often the season can be incorporated into the theme of the invitation to make it more unique.

The most important thing to remember in making your own baby shower invitations is to plan ahead. Creating invitations can take a good amount of time if done well and you don't want to just slop something together last minute because
