Baby Shower Invitations – More Great Information
Basby Shower InvitationsCreating and delivering your baby shower invitations is an essential part in the planning and announcement of the baby shower. They should let the people that you are inviting know everything they need to know about the baby shower… time, place, theme, how to RSVP and more.

Once you've decided on the baby shower guest list, you can buy paper for your baby shower invitations or purchase pre-printed ones. Be sure to buy more than you think you will need in case you make a mistake on one and because there always seems to be a couple extra people added to the guest list at the last minute.

Whether you purchase commercially made invitations or print your own baby shower invites, be sure to give yourself enough time to mail or hand them out. Invitations should be sent out around a month in advance of the baby shower. Asking for an RSVP is a very important part of the invitation. It lets you know that the invitations have been received, whether they will be attending and if they have any additional questions. The number of guest attending will also have a big impact on your baby shower budget.

The term R.S.V.P. comes from the French expression "répondez s'il vous plaît", meaning "please respond". If you write R.S.V.P. on your baby shower invitations, it means the invited guest should let you know whether or not they plan on attending your party, and any other information that you may have asked for in the invitation.

Buying Baby Shower Invitations
Check out some of our top baby shower invitation companies we have listed on the side of our pages as they can save you a lot of money by their discounts and specials. Visit your local card store and check out the commercial Baby shower party invitations and cards they have to offer. But remember, if you buy non-printable cards, you will have to hand write the information on every single card. This will certainly add a very personal touch, but also requires more time. Baby shower participants enjoy receiving baby shower invitations that they can hang up and keep as a reminder. You can also make a baby shower game ( out of the invitations by asking everyone to place a word of wisdom for the new parents and bring the baby shower invitations to share and add to a collection memory book which can be created into a really unique baby shower gift (

E-mailing Your Baby shower Party Invitations
Some people today are sending baby shower invitations via e-mail or use an online service like E-Vite. We appreciate that this helps save money and some people do it to stay “green”, but the traditional, mailed baby shower invitation is more fun and will be a keepsake for the mommy-to-be. Use recycled paper and send those baby shower invitations! A baby shower invitation email or e-vite is great for a reminder to the baby shower event after a real baby shower invitation goes out.

Baby Shower Thank You Cards
The week after the baby shower we like to send our guests a "thank you for coming" card just to let them know how much attendance meant to the mommy/guest of honor. Simple "thank you" cards can be bought at most stationary stores or you can print them yourself. Be sure to hand write your name on each card to add that personal touch. Be sure to write an extra thanks and special note to anyone that gave you special help the baby shower and any co-hosts or the mommy-to-be’s parents.

A really nice touch is to select a favorite photograph of the guest or the guest with the mommy-to-be, then glue a copy of it into the inside of the card. This personalizes the card for each guest and will bring back the memory of the baby shower. If you want go “big” you can make mini-scrapbooks for each baby shower guest or only your co-hosts and the mommy-to-be’s parents.

Printing Baby shower Party Invitations
One of the nice things about printing your own invitations is that you can print as many as you need on demand. There's a fairly large selection of baby-themed specialty printer paper and blank card stock available that works very well for making your own baby shower invitations.

Be sure to try to use matching envelopes, if they’re available. If not, you can use blue or pink colored envelopes if you know the sex of the baby. You can also use plain colored printer paper available at most office supply stores and design your own invitations.

You can and should design your baby shower invites around the theme of your party. For instance, if it is a baby animal’s themed shower, choose paper that already has puppies, kittens, baby duckies, etc. printed on them.
