Sibling Shower: Theme, Guest List and Invitations

It's time for April Showers! lilsugar is celebrating mamas-to-be all month with our baby shower coverage. From a sibling soiree to one meant for multiples and a sip and see fete to an heirloom event, our unique themes reflect the state of the economy and societal trends. So without further adieu, we will kick off the festivities with the sibling shower!

Many mothers just aren't comfortable with subsequent baby showers, so who better to honor than the impending babe's soon-to-be big brother, sis, or siblings? Get tots ready for the bundle of joy with a fun, low key and affordable get together. Limit the guest list to the youngster's small circle of friends so he or she won't be overwhelmed and the time to about two hours. Stay tuned for all the details — from decor to food to downloadable party games — in upcoming posts this week. In the meantime, print out these darling mad-lib inspired invites fit for the occasion. If your youngster is practicing printing, allow him or her to fill them out. The invitation is just one of our baby shower invitations we've created exclusively for pingg! pingg allows you to email invites to a guest list or print and mail, and send reminders via SMS, online, Facebook, Twitter and more! Just want this one? You can get a PDF download of this invite here.

This is incredibly tacky. If I got sent one of these I'd be incredulous.

I think it's ridiculous.

I love the idea of throwing a shower for the sibling. So many children feel slighted with the idea of a new baby coming into the family and this gives them the opportunity to get excited about the newest addition.

give me a break. i'm sure my 3.5 year-old and 20 month-old (and all their friends) are dying to throw me a shower. it's kind of tacky.

It's not celebrating the birth of a new child to shower the older one with gifts and parties. I don't get it. Why the hell would my older kid's friends care about a baby shower?

so... instead of getting a second shower, you just throw, for yourself, a shower that's really for the older sibling ? And no one will believe - regardless of true intent - that this isn't asking for gifts? ... and what little kid wants to host a shower (?) for his or her new sibling?

this, to me, is just weird it's just a roundabout way of still having a shower for a second's not customary and therefore seems sneaky
