To start the baby shower excitement, baby
shower invitations are a big part in the baby shower planning process!

Mommy and Daddy to be's interests, you can have a fun and creative time
planning the baby shower invitations. Important information regarding baby shower invitations are listed below.

When to send out baby shower invitations
- It is important to mail baby shower invitations four to five weeks in
advance to allow the baby shower guests ample time for
shower gift purchasing. If you have family and friends coming out of
town, you may want to coordinate with them earlier so you can make sure
they have enough time to come out and join in on the festivities!
With many different styles of
invitations available, you can have fun browsing and personalizing
different baby shower designs. The ability to preview, add, and change
the text on a baby shower invitation has come a long way, allowing you
to customize baby shower invitations like never before.
questions to ask are:
How many people
Are there any themes
Are there any creative people that are helping plan that want
to create the invites
What types of things does the mommy-to-be like?
Travel to a card store and check out
the baby shower invitations they have to either decide to purchase them
or to create something like them. If you purchase the baby shower
invitations, make sure to give yourself enough time to order them and
send them out. The baby shower invitations should
go out around two months in advance and the guests should have at least
two weeks to reply, as well as some time to invite anyone else that was
on an alternate list.
Make sure to include the following
information on the baby shower invite:
Mommy-To-Be and host(s)
Phone number in case questions
Where the Mommy-To-Be is registered for baby shower supplies
Theme of the party (if chosen)
Dress (formal or casual)
Let the guests know if there is anything they need to bring
Baby Shower Invitations - It is still customary to invite
those who may not be able to attend the baby shower due to their
location. Everyone likes being invited and a baby shower invitation can
make that person feel included! It also usually triggers them to send a
shower gift. With technology many can set up Skype or a video camera
so those that are out of town can join in on the fun at the baby shower.
We love hearing that our troops overseas can participate if you know of
someone who is protecting our freedom and wants to be involved in the
Here are some great baby shower
invitation theme ideas for your baby shower planning. There are so many
ways to be creative with the invitations. Many baby shower planners like
to tie in the baby shower invitations with the theme of the shower and
baby shower poems are great
to use as the wording of invitations. Below we have listed some of the
more popular baby shower invitation ideas. I hope they are helpful.
Choosing a theme or design for your
baby shower invitations might not always be an easy task. Some
examples of themes are couples baby showers, diapers, teddy bears, tea
Shower Invitation Idea - Send out the invitations and ask for
everyone to write a quote or advice for the parents-to-be. Have someone
create or purchase a baby shower memory book and place each person's
sentiments in the book along with the
pictures you take at the baby shower!
Going Green for
the Baby Shower - Some people today are not purchasing baby
shower invitations to save money and paper by going to online sites like
E-vite and creating their own invitations. Of course the traditional way
is to send out baby shower invitations and get the rsvp's which is fun!

Invitations - adorable baby carriages decorate this baby
shower invitation that can be used for a baby boy or a girl, also fun to
show two baby carriages for twins or three carriages for triplets.
"baby" Invitations - It is always cute to send out baby
shower invitations with actual pictures of babies or clip art pictures
of babies. If you know the sex of the baby, make it a baby boy or baby
girl on the baby shower invitations.
Invitations - There is nothing like a stork on your baby
shower invitations that symbolizes a new birth. There are many cute
cards on the market that have a picture of a stork delivering a baby or
with cute captions!
Invitations - Some of the cutest cards I have seen have
multiple baby items (bib, burp cloth, diapers, basket with towels,
onesies, etc.) to signify the baby shower is coming! Many are in "blue"
or "pink" to signify the sex of the baby. A very cute baby shower
- A furry teddybear or butterflies are always nice to see on baby shower
invitations. Any little furry animal (well almost any) are cute to place
on baby shower invitations and can be very cute!
Invitations - There is almost nothing cuter than baby shoes
since they are so small and signify a new baby is on the way or already
here. I used baby shower invitations that had shoes and were very cute.
Invitations - Purchase some small baby bottles to send out
the invitations. Open each bottle and toss in some confetti. Write the
invitation out on a long skinny piece of paper that will fit in the
bottle. roll it up, tie it with a ribbon and place the invite inside
bottle. The lids snap in place pretty snugly, but you can add a bit of
hot glue to make sure they don't come off if you like. Thanks to Mary
for this great baby shower invitation idea!
Invitation: Ultrasound - Take an ultrasound picture when
visiting the doctor and scan it in your computer or take it to a copy
place like Kinko's. Make multiple copies and write the information for
the baby shower on the back of the picture. A very creative baby shower
invitation idea by Debra!
Superstitions - If the parents-to-be do not know the sex of
the baby as of yet, have the baby shower guests write on their baby
shower invitations RSVP's, old wives' tales about how to tell the gender
of the baby. At the baby shower, read each of the wise tales and even
try them out for fun! The necklace one (hold a necklace in front of
someone and see how it spins, then hold it in front of mom's belly and
see if it spins the same way, if so, the baby's gender is the same as
the guests, if not it's the opposite gender) is always popular and
eerily correct. Write down the results and compare them when the baby is
born. Thanks to Monica for this wonderful baby shower invitation idea.
