How to Make a Baby Shower Invitation

November 21st, 2011 No comments

A baby shower invitation is sent to friends and family members of the mother of baby in order to celebrate the arrival of the child and while making these invitations it is very important to know how to make a baby shower invitation. There are many ways by which you can tell your friends and family that you are organising a baby shower. You can either call them and tell them about the details of the shower or send an email, letter or card by normal post. Any baby shower invitation must have the basic information about the names of the parents, the venue, time and date of the baby shower. The rest of it is optional: you can draw cute patterns of animals, flowers, butterflies and babies or attach decorative craft items to make the invitation look more lively and appealing. Don’t forget to give the address or phone number of the hostess so that the guests know who to call for any questions.

Sample How to make a baby shower invitation:

  • Dear Cindy,

We are happy to invite you to celebrate Bethany’s baby shower to welcome her baby boy into this world. The theme of the baby shower is cars! If you have any questions, do contact me whenever you want.

Yours truly,

Ella

  • Dear Lily,

Join us to bless the mother and child at Milly’s baby shower on Sunday. Please respond whether you are attending or not so that we can make the arrangements.

Yours truly,

Rachel

What to Say on a Baby Shower Invitation

November 21st, 2011 No comments

Baby shower invitations are sent on behalf of the expectant mother to celebrate the arrival of the baby but one often wonders what to say on a baby shower invitation. Like any invitation card, a baby shower invitation also has some basic information which must be given in the invite. The name of the mother is the most important so that the recipient of the invite knows whose baby shower it is. After that, a formal invitation must be made by the host by inviting the guests and also the theme of the baby shower can be mentioned, if there is any. Last but not the least, all the details of the venue, date and time must be mentioned clearly along with the phone number of the host so that guests can call her for any enquiry. Any special instruction should also be mentioned, for example, if here is any costume party, what gifts to bring, if it is a potluck, a picnic or party and so on.

Sample What to say on a baby shower invitation:

  • Dear Martha,

Please join us for lunch to celebrate the baby shower of Kathy to be held at Cinnamon Hall on Sunday at 1 pm.

Yours truly,

Sarah

  • Dear Mini,

I would like to invite you to celebrate Monica’s baby shower to be held this Saturday at her apartment in 21 Street at 11 am. We are having a garden theme for the baby shower and you can wear a costume if you want too!

Yours truly,

Rachel

Response to Baby Shower Invitation

November 21st, 2011 No comments

A response to a baby shower invitation is given by the recipient of the baby shower after he receives the invitation to attend a baby shower. Sometimes, some invitation cards ask for a response while some are sent by the recipient as courtesy sake. By responding to the baby shower invitation, the recipient can let the host know if she is attending the shower or not. This helps the host to get an estimate of the number of people attending the shower and make arrangements accordingly. If you are declining an invitation, you can give the reason for your absence honestly but make sure to be tactful so that the feelings of the host are not hurt. If you have decided to join the celebrations, then let the host know about your arrival. One can respond to a baby shower invitation either by calling, emailing or sending a letter by ordinary post. Also respond as soon as possible after receiving the invitation.

Sample Response to Baby Shower Invitation:

  • Dear Maria,

I am sorry to say that I will not able to attend the baby shower of Gloria as my husband’s parents will be arriving to stay with us during the weekend. But my best wishes are forever with Gloria and her baby and I shall pray for them.

Yours truly,

Anna

  • Dear Gina,

I received your baby shower invitation to celebrate Dolly’s baby and I will gladly be a part of the celebrations. Congratulations to the mother and child again. See you soon!

Yours truly,

Wendy

Baby Shower Invitations in Spanish

November 21st, 2011 No comments

Baby shower invitations in Spanish are similar to any general baby shower invitation but the wording is in Spanish. The concept of baby showers is actually American, although in every culture there is some custom which honours the baby and the mother by offering prayers, a get-together or a feast. This tradition has now become very popular among South American and Spanish-speaking countries and also among Spanish speaking communities in the US. Like any other baby shower, the time, date, venue of the party must be written along with the name of the mother, it would read something like this: Le invitamos cordialmente a la ducha del bebé de María, que se celebrará el domingo en el Salón de la Iglesia de San Pablo a la 1 pm. The theme of the baby shower, for example ‘nature’ can also be mentioned this way: El tema de la ducha del bebé es la naturaleza.

Sample Baby Shower Invitations in Spanish:

  • Por favor únase a Lisa de su baby shower. El tema de la ducha del bebé es la música así que por favor traiga su álbum de música favorita para poder tocar nuestras canciones favoritas.

Sinceramente,

Gloria.

Duck baby shower invitations are one of the most popular baby shower invitation designs as animal and bird patters have always been regarded to be cute and positive. A duck baby shower invitation may be shaped like a duck or may contain pictures and illustration of a duck. Usually the picture of the duck is accompanied by a baby’s illustration where it is shown that the baby is playing with the duck. You can make cut outs of photographs of ducks, or draw one if you are creative and also add items like laces, bows and buttons to make the card look attractive. Bright colours can be used to depict a small pond, green grass and blue skies. Sometimes a picture of a mother duck with her ducklings is also used to make the invitation look more adorable.
