How to Make a Great Baby Shower Invitation

Five Steps to a Great Baby Shower Invitation

So you’re looking to make a great baby shower invitation, but you’re not sure where to start? Don’t worry. Patti the Perfect Party Planner is here to give you five easy steps to a fabulous baby shower invitation in no time flat.


The first thing you want to look at when making a baby shower invitation is the paper. The paper makes the invitation, literally and figuratively.

When selecting your baby shower invitation paper, make sure you use quality paper that is heavy with a nice texture to it. Colored paper is always a plus. Many office supply stores and craft stores sell paper made specifically for invitation purposes.

The Print

Once you have your paper decided, you need to figure out how you’re going to do the print of your baby shower invitation. Are you going to use a computer? Are you going to do calligraphy by hand? Look at your options and decide which one best suits your needs.

The Wording

Now that you have the paper and the print out of the way, it’s time to design the wording of your baby shower invitation. It can be cute or it can be traditional and functional, but whatever it is, make sure you check that you have the time, the date, and the location correct. Without those, the rest of the wording of the invitation means nothing.

The Decorating

Now that you have the paper, print and wording out of the way, it’s time to start in on the fun part. Decorating the invitations. Glitter, confetti, tiny little stickers -- go to town and use your imagination when it comes to the decoration of the baby shower invitation.

The Envelope

Now that the baby shower invitation is complete, it’s time to take care of the envelope. The envelope can just be color coordinated with the invitations or you can have the outside of the envelope match the décor of the baby shower invitation entirely. The choice is up to you, although I prefer envelopes that match the décor of the invitation when it comes to baby shower invitations.

Once the envelope is done, you’re finished. It’s time to send out the baby shower invitation to everyone on your invite list.
