You maybe the Godmother of the incoming baby or even the Mommy herself, but planning a baby shower is serious business. While you would want everything to be pitch-perfect, the best way to lure your closest girlfriends is to start by sending out baby shower invitations well ahead of time.
There are plenty of themes you could play around with to make your baby shower invites and the shower itself a bubbling success and some Mommies even opt to remain gender-neutral during the baby shower invitation delivery period and use the shower as an occasion to reveal the sex of the baby!
Baby Shower Invites with Furry Animals
Think of all the cuddly bears that will become your baby’s new best friends, a baby shower invitation with little baby animals is a nicer way of showing how your little family of two (or more) is slowly starting to grow. Ideally your baby shower invite could have a mother bear and little bears around her as a direct symbol of maternity. The backdrop could be a solid colour or even a delicate candy striped wallpaper pattern.
Decoration ideas could also include stuffed animals around the party hall or living room and even cookies cut out in the shape of bears!
Baby Shower Invites that are Nursery Themed
If you are a super Mommy who is not only organising her own baby shower but even has had time to paint and decorate the nursery for the little one, then be sure to go ahead with a baby shower invitation that shows off your hard work. Little snippets of the wallpaper used accompanied by the footprint of your baby would make your baby shower invitation perfect to complement your nursery.
Party decoration ideas could include flags and tassels that complement your nursery theme and the menu could even have cupcakes assorted in the line of colours you have chosen!
Baby Shower Invites with Baby Toys
The tiny squeak of the rubber ducky that is sure to make your baby laugh and the beach ball your baby would try to roll over in the months to come is another great idea to have on your baby shower invitation.
Party decoration ideas could include beach balls or balloons speckled across the floor and little rubber ducks hanging from the ceilings. If cupcakes are in your menu, be sure to get a little rubber duck atop the icing.
Baby Shower Invites with Baby Furniture
Your guests would have no doubt guessing the occasion without even reading through the baby shower invitation upon seeing the high chairs, prams, bibs and bottles of milk. Line your images against a background of blue, pink or any other pastel shade or even a delicate pattern of polka dots or vertical stripes.
Be sure that your baby shower invitation also includes registry information and any theme specific dress code. Moreover, if you are adventurous, you could even divert the focus the baby shower to the parents by daring using bold typography and bold colours.
