You Say Baby, We Say Bebe: Fun With Baby Shower Invitation Wording

The only thing more fun than going to a baby shower is planning one for a friend! It’s just soooo fun to pick a theme, and come up with creative ideas for food and decorations. But, first have you picked out the baby shower invitations? The baby shower invitation wording, colors and theme can go a long way towards setting the mood for your shower.

Not only will it help you with decorating ideas, but the baby shower invitation wording can let your guests know what the mom-to-be is thinking about for nursery colors, what she might need in the way of baby gifts, where she is registered, or whether you’re planning any special activities they need to prepare for. Of course, there are a few must-haves when it comes to baby shower invitation wording:

  1. host’s name and address
  2. date of party
  3. start and end times
  4. contact info for RSVP
  5. gift registry information if mom-to-be wants to include it
  6. anything else you’d like guests to bring

Lastly, keep it fun. There are lots of ways to say, “You’re invited to a Baby Shower.” Here are a few baby shower invitation wording ideas that will get your shower off to the most adorable start.

Alphabet Animals Baby Shower Ideas

I am so excited to share a few photos and ideas from my best friend’s baby shower! I had fun planning the shower with her sister Liz, who flew in from California, and her sister-in-law, Shawna, from southern Minnesota. We thought it would be fun to have the baby shower for both Mom and Dad-to-be, so it turned into a big party for family and friends.
Baby Shower Ideas
We wanted to involve Lisa and Sam, the parents-to-be, in the planning so to get ideas we asked them to pick out their favorite three baby shower invitations from our collection. Their top three were Alphabet Animals, Personalized Poster or Togetherness. Lisa and Sam are having a girl, but aren’t flooding everything in pink. They provided us with material swatches that are going to be included in the nursery. We thought the Alphabet Animals Baby Shower Invitations would be a perfect match! The invites were sent out in fuchsia colored envelopes, and we used the Alphabet Animals address labels to make them even more festive.

There were extra invites, so I created some paper banners by cutting and sewing flags together. I also made baby advice cards that doubled as a guest book for the party. I used rubber stamps to write out “baby advice” on each card. Liz put together some salt-water-taffy pinwheels, and we attached Alphabet Animals gift tags to them for party favors. Continue reading

Bicycle Theme Baby Shower Ideas

Erin is one of my close friends from college. She and Dave make the most perfect couple I think I’ve ever seen, so I was beyond excited to find out they were expecting. They’re going to make such great parents. They love to bike, so when we released our Double Bicycle and Baby Make Three Baby Shower Invitations I knew immediately it was the absolutely perfect theme for Erin’s baby shower ideas.

At Erin’s request, we hosted the shower at her house. A few of the hosts took her to the gym while the rest of us stayed back to decorate and set up. We used the colors from the invitation as our guide for the décor, knowing we wanted something festive for the door and lots of color inside. We saw a tutorial on how to make tissue paper tassel garland at TomKatStudio.com and loved the idea. We made a short one for the door and a longer one to hang inside on the archway.

Baby room ideas

baby room ideasWhen you’re expecting a baby, few things are more fun than decorating your new baby’s nursery. You get to immerse yourself in baby colors, clothes, bedding and furniture to your heart’s content. And with nine months of waiting, it’s nice to have a focus for your energy–especially when that nesting instinct kicks in.

To get a feel for what you might like, visit a few stores for baby room ideas. Seeing what’s out there will help you decide on a theme or color for the room, or perhaps a quilt or rug you love will give you a starting point. Of course, if you’re creative with a paintbrush or sewing machine, you can create any theme you like.

If you know your baby’s gender you can pick a theme and go all in. For boys, the perennial favorites are trucks, trains, planes, space, sports, zoo animals, jungle and safari animals. For girls, flowers, hearts, fairies, angels, bunnies, kittens, ballerinas, ribbons & bows, butterflies. Don’t worry, you’ll know it when you see it.

There are plenty of gender-neutral themes, too: stars, cats & dogs, cute bugs like dragonflies or ladybugs, teddy bears, bunnies, lambs, fish, farm animals, ducks, abc’s, patterns such as plaids, checks and polka dots, or characters from children’s books such as Peter Rabbit.

As for colors, if you don’t know whether it’s a boy or girl, choose a solid color that can be accessorized either way. For example, paint the room green, and if it’s a boy add blue accents; if it’s a girl, pink accents. Blue can also work both ways, depending on the shade. Or choose one color you love and accessorize with different shades of that color. Your baby is sure to love it, too.

The theme you choose can even be carried beyond baby room ideas to a theme for your baby shower invitations, thank you cards, birth announcements and more. If you love it, you can use it everywhere. Why not? They are only babies once. Shop our baby collection for more theme ideas!
