Baby Shower Invitations

Baby shower invitations come in all sorts of colors and themes. You can order very fancy ones, or you can create your own from items you buy separately or in a kit.

What information should I include?

Some people worry about the wording. Should the mom and dad be listed, or just the mom? Should registry information be included or not? Since there’s no clear answer, it’s mostly a matter of taste.

In addition to the 5 w’s – who, what, why, when and where, every invitation should at the very least include the following:

  • Name (person being honored)
  • Date
  • Time
  • Place

Be creative – think outside of the box

Mass produced invitations are fine, however, it’s easy and fun to make yours unique. Don’t feel like you need to stick with traditional paper or card. It’s always fun to find something more non-traditional to make them out of. The following are some ideas:

  • Diapers
  • Small t-shirts
  • Booties
  • Bottles
  • Rattles

This list is by no means complete. You can use just about anything. To create invitations out of these items, simply write the information on the item with permanent ink, or place a tag or sticker with the information on the item.

Free Ideas

Don’t worry if you’re on a limited budget. There are many resources available that can help. The following are 3 ideas:

  • Evites: In the internet age e-invitations have become very popular. There are several websites where you can sign up for free, such as Yahoo and AOL. You simply enter all the important details like date, time, location ect; then an email will be sent out to your guest list. They even have special graphics you can add to the e-card to make it look unique. Reminders will also automatically be send out a few days before the party, so once you set it up, there’s no more work for you to do. This will give you more time to plan the other important parts of the event.
  • Make your own: If you’re feeling crafty enough, you can make your own invitations at home. All you’ll need is some cardboard, magic markers and your imagination.
  • Printable invitations: The internet is also an excellent source for this. There many web sites that allow you to choose an invitation from a premade template. You can choose some custom graphics, or upload your own. Then you simply print them at home.
