  • “Join us for a
    Sip and See

  • “Twinkle, twinkle, tiny light
    little eyes that shine so bright
    A precious baby from heaven above
    to fill our hearts with so much love

    Please join us for a baby shower honoring Name”

This part is obvious but very important for a baby shower invitation. The guests surely glance it at first to see the purpose of invitation as well as the name or gender of your baby (it is also all right to give both mother and father’s name) . Moreover, the beginning will decide the tone properly. It is written formally or casually depending on the relation with the invitee.


This is the informational part of your invitation. But if possible, you can express extra your feeling. It does not need to be too long, just write some sincere sentences. Your salute to your baby and happiness should be described by your literary style but overcautiously because it will make the invitation become inflexible and unemotional. Here you can say again the purpose of card. Do not worry it is redundant and repeats the beginning because this will show the guests its great importance to you.

Remember to attach concrete time, date and place of the party immediately after. It will be clearer if you print it in bold type or use a different size of word. It helps the invitee see further easily.

Let's refer some samples following:

  • “Please join us for a baby shower at
    The Jasmine Street Restaurant
    Friday April 18th at 6pm”
  • “Join Lillian for the calm before the storm
    Friday May 25th
    Nancy’s house”
  • “Please join us for a baby shower
    On the 8th of September at Christine’s house
    3 o’clock in the afternoon”
  • “Please join us for a shower in her honor.
    Friday, February 7th
    5 pm
    At the Los Altos Bar and Grill”


Beside the guests’ name, you need to inform name and phone to whom they should RSVP. This will help them reply their response quickly and you can base on it to list the number of attendees. In addition, a deadline for them is necessary for you to check the roster more easily.

Some sample recommendations for you:

  • “RSVP to Christine at your earliest convenience
    Becca is registered at Pottery Barn Kids”
  • “Please RSVP to Dave by April 10th
  • “Please RSVP to host Marla Hamilton
    Sherry is registered at Target”
  • “Please RSVP to Maria’s mother Jocelyn by February 1st
    Maria is registered at Gymboree”

Decoration Of Baby Shower Invitation

Beside the main information you provide, you should decorate your invitation with suitable themes. It can follow your hobby, ideas for holding the baby shower party or simply your child’s gender. This step will make your card be more vivid and pleasure to the recipient’s eye.

The are many factors decides your themes. For example, it is important for you to consider the problems such as what do you ( soon-to-be mother or father) want to enjoy the most, is the baby a boy or a girl, is she expecting twins, have already mother had children before or is the baby adoptee?
