One of the first steps in planning a baby shower is to create a guest list.
It's usually a safe bet to ask the guest of honor for a list of people she would like to invite, but in sticking with "Good Things Come in Small Packages" theme, an intimate group of family and closest friends works well for this one.
To see what else we recommend for a "small" shower, read more.
As for the invitations, I like to reference the baby–to–be's room when making my selection. The pregnant mama will adore an invite that matches her nursery theme, especially if she plans on framing it for the room.
You're guaranteed to find a darling card at Tiny Prints. Featuring over 60 shower invitations, the super swell stationery company has pink and blue hued cards as well as gender neutral invites to please the thrill seeking mamas.
On the invitation, you'll want to answer all of the following questions:
- Who is being honored at the shower?
- What day and time is the shower being held?
- Where is the party?
- Who is the RSVP contact?
- Where is the mama–to–be registered? (Optional.)
- Who is hosting the shower? (Optional.)
