They are described as cute, cuddly, sweet, and loveable. They are babies. They are what make the world go round. Without these cute little bundles of joy, the world would be a sad place. Every young couple, at one point or another after they are married wants to start a family. Tradition use to say that a baby shower was held as a surprise, but times are changing. Now they are planned by the parents, or involving both parents, are coed and sometimes held after the child is born. They are no longer the stuffy parlour room full of elderly ladies sipping tea and watching the poor, hot suffering mom open her presents. They are BBQ’s, picnics, parties and fun events. Colourful baby invitations will allow your guests to see what kind of shower they are invited to.
Of course, whether you are throwing a baby shower for yourself or someone else, there are tasks that need to be done before you send the invitations out. You need to set a date and time and decide on a theme for the shower. Is it going to be a backyard BBQ, a picnic in the park, a buffet style party or a covered dish affair? Is it being held in a home, in an outside arena, at a restaurant, or are there going to be so many guests you need to rent a hall?
After you have decided this, you need to make any reservations that might be needed, sign up or get the mother-to-be signed up at a registry at a good baby store, pick the food and choose the decorations that will be used. Once you have this done, you need to make up the guest list. If you are the expectant mother, then you already know whom you want to invite. If you are planning it for someone else, you need to include the expectant mother, and if it is coed the expectant father too!
Now, How About Those Colourful Baby Invitations
Muted pinks, blues, mauves, yellows, greens and other pastels are outdated. Those are the baby colours of the past. Research has shown that babies develop a heightened attention span if bright, bold colours surround them. Many parents are now planning their nurseries to include these bolder hues.
Having a baby is not a solemn occasion. Save those feelings for the dearly departed. Having a baby is a wonderful, delightful, joyous occasion, so why not say it with bright, bold, colourful baby invites.
