It seems like everyone I know and their sister is expecting this year. You know what that means – it’s baby shower season! The traditional baby shower with its party games, paper plate hats, and pink or blue cupcakes has usually just been for the ladies. I’ve never been a traditionalist though, so mine were always co-ed. For ours we added some “guy-friendly” activities like a barbecue and trivia.
Modern dads are a lot more involved than they used to be, and co-ed baby showers are becoming more and more popular. However you create your guest list, it’s a chance to celebrate the mom-to-be and help her family get ready for the new addition. Besides, there’s always cupcakes.
My friend Kristy organized the baby shower for my first baby, and then the baby “sprinkle” we had for her little sister two and a half years later. Between sending out all the invitations, making the food, organizing games, and even helping to clean up our house after, she was the best party planner I ever could have asked for. I hope that you have a Kristy in your life too!
If that’s you this year, Basic Invite can help make your baby shower prep a little easier with their perfectly personalized baby shower invitations and thank you cards. Here are a few of my favourite designs! Click the arrows to scroll left and right.
Check out Basic Invite to see how much fun it is to create your perfect card. Start by selecting your favourite card design, then make it uniquely you. Pick from over 180 colour options, choose your font, change the wording, and move each individual element around to make it truly yours. You can even order a printed sample card so you can see it and touch it in person before committing.
When your special bundle finally comes along, you want to shout it from the rooftops! Depending on where you live, that might be a tad impractical though, so a better alternative is to send out a custom birth announcement. You have lots of choices here as well. Over 200 of them actually!
And once you’ve survived that first year – making it through all those late night feedings, 2500+ diaper changes, crying jags (yours and your baby’s) – it’s time to celebrate! You know where to find your first birthday invitations.
Oh, and forget about those boring white envelopes. You can mix and match the envelope with your card for the total package. Basic Invite has more than 40 different colours to choose from for your peel and seal envelopes (no licking required!). For an extra special touch, you can add a coordinating print or even your own photo to the inside of your envelope.
Whether you’re getting hitched or celebrating a milestone birthday, announcing your new bundle of joy or looking for personalized graduation invitations (or even thank you cards for graduation money – hint hint), look for your perfect card at Basic Invite!
