Baby Shower Invitation Planning Tips!

If you have the chance to throw an event for a friend or family member who is about to be blessed with a new baby, you should definitely jump at the chance to throw that special person a wonderful Baby Shower Party. Of course, the best events are going to start with a great theme and matching Baby Shower Invitations, as well as some other elements, including delicious refreshments and baby shower games. To help you get started with your planning, here are some useful pointers.

A few of the leading online invitations and announcements stores offer a variety of advantages for shopping with them. You should look for those shoppes that offer one or more of the following:

Instant Preview After Personalizing Your Baby Shower Invitation!
Your Proof Should be Submitted in a Timely Manner, say Within ONE Hour After Completing Your Order During the Business Day, and With Free Unlimited Revisions
Same Day Printing and Shipping
Free Shipping and Some Free Cards, with minimum quantity purchase
Exclusive and Unique Designs and the ability to add your own Baby Shower Wordings
You Should be Able to Add a Photo or Picture, or Modify any Card Design at NO extra charges
They Should be Willing to Create a Design especially for you with minimum quantity order.

Once you have determined your budget you can afford start brainstorming for your themes. Colors can be a wonderful theme but you can also be more creative. One idea is to ask the expectant parents what theme they plan to use in the baby's nursery and continue that theme into the party. That can be a great idea.

The best baby invitations are going to continue that theme for you. For example, if you choose a safari theme for the event you might want to pick baby shower stationary that includes jungle animals, such as tigers or elephants. You can also choose invitations that have fill-in-the-blank spots for the information but you can just as easily have the message you want pre-printed on each one either at home or by a vendor. And, of course, for surprise baby showers, you will need to note that on the babyshower invites.

The Next of Your Preparations - You should be careful about choosing a great location, too. Homes are a great choice for small parties. If the shower is scheduled for the summer, you might want to have a barbecue or outdoor event. Larger showers would be better suited for restaurant party rooms, clubhouses and reception halls. You could also consider renting a room at the local hotel for the evening so you don't have to worry as much about clean up.

Finally, you'll need to decide who is going to make the cut on the guest list. You must decide if the baby shower invitation will only be heading to the women or will you want to open up the guest list to include both men, for coed baby showers or couples baby showers, and children. Once you've decided, make sure you address the baby showers invitations accordingly to prevent confusion. That means if you don't want the guys, only address the cards to the women.

Make sure to always include your contact information on each of the baby shower invitation so guests can reach you with questions or for directions. Having multiple contact methods on the cards can be a good idea, too.
