Baby showers are a time to enjoy with close family and friends on the coming birth of a loved one. It's a great time to celebrate and be close with the people that you love. The baby shower itself is a great way to have fun. There are many laughs and wonderful memories that come out of baby showers.
Who knows? Maybe in one of the games you can even come up with a great name for the baby. Baby showers can be thrown a number of ways. You can have a small get-together in a home where just the closest family and friends get to share in the intimacy of the pregnant mother. A baby shower can happen at a restaurant or catering hall and be a bigger event. It does not matter how the baby shower happens, just as long as the mother can feel the joy from her loved ones.
Baby showers can not happen without the invitation. You should not call anyone up or just send an email to tell someone about the party. This is so informal and there are many people who like to keep invitations as a keepsake for a photo album or box of memories. The mother may also want to have one for her own collection of memories for when the child gets older.
There are two ways you can get an invitation. The first is by going to a store and ordering a custom-made batch. This can have cute little pictures made on special card paper. Or, if you under a budget, you can print the cards out on a computer or hand write them for an added intimate effect. No choice is wrong for this occasion.
The inside of the card needs important information such as the name of the guest of honor, time, place, date, venue, RSVP information and if the mother is registered for gifts. This information does not need to be displayed in a list form. You can come up with cute and inventive ways to give the information for the inside of the card.
Many people have used poems as a way to relay the information for the card. The words in the card should express the mood of the affair. This means have a lighthearted, sweet and loving message in the card. You can write anything you like or post a poem. If you are having a hard time coming up with something, search on the Internet for baby shower poems. There are many common ones out there that you can choose from.
If the host knows the gender of the baby ahead of time, you can have a theme to the card. Boys tend to be associated with blue colors. You have the card with a logo that says "It's a boy" or have a sports or racing them on the card.
For girls, pink is appropriate. Themes for girls include princesses or fairy tales, candy or butterflies. If you do not know the sex beforehand or the parents want to keep it a surprise there are many neutral pictures that can be used in the card such as a stork carrying a baby or teddy bears.
Any invitation you choose should be caring and warm. There is no shame in asking for help on picking the right invitation. The mom-to-be will be happy with any card picked because of the loving message of the baby shower.
