Creative Baby Shower Invite Wording - Baby showers are an American tradition and a much-anticipated section of an expectant mother's first pregnancy. Not surprisingly, the normal baby shower hostess feels a measure of stress when it comes to planning this long-awaited party, and if it's her foray to the baby shower area, the task can quickly become an overwhelming one. But planning a baby shower does not need to be a source of jealousy, and using this very simple beginner's manual, even the most inexperienced kid could throw a fun-filled and memorable baby shower.
The first order of business would be to set a date for the baby shower. The perfect time to schedule that the shower is when the expectant mom is 32 to 34 weeks pregnant, and you must allow yourself about 6 months of preparation time before the party. When the date is determined on, request the mom-to-be to supply you with a listing of names and addresses. This is your guest list. Get the invitations and send them out about 4 months before the date of this party.
The next thing to consider is decorations. Let the personality and style of the expectant mom are the starting place for the direction you will take with all the baby shower. Can she be super sour, or is she the no-frills type? Resist the desire to plan the party based on your personal taste rather than the guest of honors. You might want to opt for a theme for the shower, but remember that this isn't an essential element and might even complicate things unnecessarily.
Now's the time to choose the menu too. Finger foods are acceptable for almost every baby shower. If you have slightly bit more time plus a flair for the culinary arts, you can add a bowl of homemade pasta salad, or perhaps some mini quiches (in the freezer section, simply heat and serve) to this listing.
