Secrets of terrific baby shower
Should you just phone your friends and invite them or should you send written cards? Phoning may be fine if you're calling only a few people. But it's better to send written baby shower invitations - then all details are available in black and white. The guest need not wonder, "Was it 4:00 pm or 7:00 pm?" Also, party themes are better conveyed via paper than on the phone.
Obviously, invitations should reflect the party themes, if you're using one. These days it is easy to get pre-designed invites that do so very well.
Your cards should reflect the true spirit of these celebrations. The innocence of babies. The happiness of the new parents-to-be. After all, this is not just a normal party!
It follows that a key ingredient in invites will be your imagination!
Send out shower invitations 4 - 6 weeks before the event to any out-of-town guests. And about 3 - 4 weeks in advance to local guests. That'll give them enough time to respond to your RSVP, and do whatever they need to do (prepare for a game, bring some item along, etc) to fit in with your party themes.
Baby shower invitations come in lovely designs and party themes like animals, nursery rhymes, fairy tales, moon & stars, floral patterns and toys, among others. Also, depending on whether it's a boy or a girl, first or subsequent child, twins / triplets, etc, there are invites specifically designed for each such situation.
Online, there are basically two kinds of sources for baby shower invitations.
One, where you customize your invites online and print them off your computer. No waiting - very useful if you're in a hurry. Second, baby shower invitations that are printed by the manufacturer. You can customize these also online at the manufacturer's site. The invites are then printed and delivered to your doorstep. With this option, you get professional print quality.
