Why go for an ordinary baby shower when you can get creative with a clever themed shower? Here are a few ideas for holding themed showers of your own, and ideas for baby shower invitations to go along with them!
If you’re interested in the hottest colors for your baby shower invitations, you can’t go wrong with pastels combined with sweet accents of chocolate brown. Herald your child’s eminent arrival with a candy-sweet theme of blush pink and chocolate brown. This is the perfect event for cupcakes, whether you want chocolate cupcakes with pink frosting or you’re ready to get creative with striped chocolate and pink vanilla frosting. Encourage guests to come dressed to match, so you’ll have a beautiful bunch of pictures to look back on!
One of the most popular themes is Pickles and Ice Cream, a play on the classic pregnancy craving. For the cutest Pickles and Ice Cream baby shower, neapolitan-striped invites have a whole party’s worth of matching pieces, from beverage napkins to dessert plates, even fold-over cards that you can use as sweet follow-up thank you notes.
Couples showers are catching on as a trend, too, for dads eager to be involved (or eat cake). Show that both Mom and Dad are ready for the new arrival with couples-themed baby shower invitations. Let the father-to-be help in planning the shower, and let him create activities and contribute food ideas to make it a good time for both of you. Open your shower to the couples you know, and have fun! You can even have gender-specific baby shower invitations, and still keep the couple theme for a boy or a girl!
Skipping a theme altogether? For standard baby shower invitations, sparkly never goes out of style. Try invitations with glittering baby carriages (boy or girl) or clever sparkling sheep (boy or girl). After all, sweetness is never a lesser option! Invite your friends and play the classic baby shower games, have cake and ice cream, collect presents and advice and have a fine, fine day, Mama-to-be.
