Top 10 Baby Shower Invitation Ideas

  • baby shoe invitation ideaBaby Shoe Invi­ta­tion: Noth­ing is cuter than a baby shoe (aside from the baby wear­ing them off course). Use a baby shoe image for your invi­ta­tion or take the idea a step fur­ther and send your baby show­er guests an actu­al baby shoe with the baby show­er invi­ta­tion rolled up inside it. This will be eas­i­er to do if you can hand-deliv­er the invi­ta­tions and if you do not plan on hav­ing many guests attend­ing the show­er.
  • baby bottle invitation ideaBaby Bot­tle Invi­ta­tion: We all know that baby bot­tles are a new moth­er must-have! Use a baby bot­tle image as part of your invi­ta­tion or, as sug­gest­ed above with the baby shoe invi­ta­tion, send your baby show­er invi­ta­tions rolled up inside a baby bot­tle. Also, as men­tioned above, this will be eas­i­er to do if you can hand-deliv­er the invi­ta­tions and if you do not plan on hav­ing many guests attend­ing the baby.
  • Baby Ultra­sound Invi­ta­tion: This is a very sim­ple and easy idea: use an image of your baby ultra­sound as part of your invi­ta­tion. The ultra­sound itself can be what you use as an invi­ta­tion with the poem, infor­ma­tion, and fun design on the back­side of it. Anoth­er way to include your ultra­sound is to use it as the main image in your invi­ta­tion with the infor­ma­tion placed around it.
  • Stork Invi­ta­tion: How cute is a stork? We all know that storks are the good news bear­er when it comes to babies. Use a cute stork car­toon for your baby show­er invitations–it adds a nice, play­ful touch.
  • Baby Block Invi­ta­tion: ABC and 123 blocks are a baby’s favorite toys. Use a pic­ture of baby blocks as part of your baby show­er invi­ta­tion: you can spell out “baby” with the blocks or the sex of the baby–even the name of the baby if it has been picked already. Anoth­er fun idea is to use the num­bers to list the baby show­er event details (Ex. 1 = name of moth­er-to-be, 2 = date of baby show­er, and so on).
  • Ducky Invi­ta­tion: We all love a yel­low rub­ber ducky. Use one to per­son­al­ize your baby show­er invites. It can be a great touch to the invi­ta­tion whether it’s in the cen­ter of your invite or in one of the cor­ners, you decide! You can also use a blue rub­ber ducky for a baby boy show­er invi­ta­tion or a pink rub­ber ducky for a baby girl show­er invi­ta­tion.
  • Baby Feet Invi­ta­tion: Baby feet are cute and tiny, and, did we men­tion, cute! Use baby foot­prints to dec­o­rate your baby show­er invi­ta­tions. It’s very sim­ple and isn’t time con­sum­ing to do.
  • Baby Dia­per Invi­ta­tion: Using a baby dia­per image for your baby show­er invi­ta­tion is anoth­er cute way to cel­e­brate the baby’s arrival. Not to men­tion, it’s more of a fun, humor­ous style of invi­ta­tion too!
  • Baby Bib Invi­ta­tion: The moth­er-to-be will have a lot of fun doing the ‘air­plane’ with the spoon while feed her baby. So, cel­e­brate this moment by using a baby bib image as part of your invi­ta­tion. If you want to take your baby show­er invi­ta­tions to anoth­er lev­el, you can have the baby bibs cus­tom print­ed with the baby show­er invi­ta­tions details.
  • Styl­ish Sim­plic­i­ty Invi­ta­tion: Keep you baby show­er invi­ta­tions clean and sim­ple. Some­times less is more :). Use a sim­ple font with a smooth, mel­low back­ground col­or. Maybe add one dec­o­ra­tive line sep­a­rat­ing a poem from the rest, just remem­ber to not go over­board with this one!

Additional Baby Shower Invitation Ideas

Includ­ing a baby show­er poem as part of your baby show­er invi­ta­tion is often a great idea. Also, in order to engage your guests, you can ask them to write a quote or advice for the par­ents-to-be and have them bring a copy of one of their baby pic­tures. You can then cre­ate a scrap­book where you put the quotes of the guests, their baby pic­tures, and a cur­rent pic­ture of them next to each oth­er — it’s even more fun if you take the cur­rent pic­ture dur­ing the baby show­er event.

If the par­ents-to-be do not know the sex of the baby yet, have your guests RSVP with an old tale on how to tell whether it will be a baby boy or a baby girl. The guests can talk about food crav­ings or about the age old neck­lace trick — where you hold a neck­lace in front of some­one and see how it spins, after that hold the neck­lace in front of the moth­er-to-be and see if the neck­lace spins in the same direc­tion. If so, the baby gen­der is said to be the same as the gen­der of the guest, if the neck­lace spins in the oppo­site direc­tion it is said that the baby will be of the oppo­site sex. Write down the results and com­pare them when the baby sex is final­ly known. It is always fun to see it the neck­lace pre­dic­tion worked or see if any oth­er ‘trick’ was cor­rect in pre­dict­ing the baby’s gen­der.
