Baby Shower Invites

So you’ve made your planning lists, ordered the sandwiches, and picked out the cake. Still stumped on the baby shower invitation wording? Here’s the PAPYRUS guide to creating an invitation as sweet and inviting as the shower itself.

Keep your wording simple and relevant, providing only the necessary details. Let the beautiful design of the invitation speak for itself.

What to Include in Your Baby Shower Invitation: 

  • The Who: Include the recipient of the shower by first and last name, whether the mom-to-be or the parents-to-be.
  • The What: Make sure you note that it’s a baby shower or the celebration of a new baby.
  • The When: Include the date and time. 
  • The Where: Write down the location and the address. 
  • The RSVP: You’ll also want to add in the hosts’ or hostesses’ names, as well as any RSVP details--an email address, phone number, or both. 
  • The Registry: Provide a list of the places with the mother-to-be’s baby registries so guests don’t have to spend time searching the Internet or contacting the expectant mother. 

Any other pertinent information: 

Will you play games at the shower? Do guests need to bring a onesie to decorate? Will there be a raffle for whoever brings a pack of diapers? In lieu of traditional gifts, should guests bring a children’s book or a card with a meaningful piece of advice?
