Baby Shower Invitation Ideas

Baby showers celebrate the new parents and their little bundle of joy, usually with an event centered on a fun theme. A baby shower traditionally includes friends and family, fun food and exciting baby shower games, but ultimately it is to support the expectant mother and father with an abundance of good wishes and helpful suggestions. Many hosts and hostesses focus on the baby shower decorations and games, but Hostess Heroes know the most cherished memory of every baby shower is the invitation.

Finding creative baby shower invitation ideas isn’t hard with the selection offered at, but finding the best wording to personalize you invite can be difficult.

Hostess Hero Tip: Be sure to send out invitations at least one month in advance.Baby Shower Invitation Ideas

Baby shower invitations should include:
