Getting Ready for Your Baby Shower
Preparing for your baby shower is always an exciting time. Picking out the invitations can often be the highlight of event-planning. However, once you’ve picked out your adorable elephant baby shower invitations
, there’s still a lot of work to do. Make sure you’ve thought about every aspect of your shower before the big day comes. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Nothing says “party” like matching napkins. Get napkins that will match your invitations or your party’s theme. If you already know your baby’s gender, display it with the napkin color and add your baby’s name. If you want to keep your guests guessing, personalize your napkins with the soon-to-be mommy’s name and the due date, and pick a color that works best for your party.
Menus and Table Runners
Add to the atmosphere of your party with a menu
designed specifically for your shower and customized table runners
. Serve food that will be great for a baby shower, such as mini tarts or cupcakes, and let your guests know what they can expect to eat and drink. Put the names of the proud parents on your table runners, and pick a color to match your shower’s theme.
Finish up by letting your guests know what the afternoon’s entertainment will be. Plan some games that get everyone on their feet. Also consider games that give the expectant mom some time to sit and rest. Baby shower game cards
can help your guests get to know each other, as well as share their hopes for the baby’s future.
Once you’ve planned the entire baby shower, the only thing left is to have a great time. Make sure you send out your thank you notes so your guests know how much their presence was appreciated. Once the baby is born, make sure to follow up with a birth announcement so everyone can see the adorable fellow they were celebrating.

"I am so happy and pleased with the way my baby shower invitations turned out. It was simple yet I was able to use their format to customize the invite to my preference. I highly recommend tiny prints. I was weary in the beginning because I have never used them before, but now I will continue to use them for all my invitation and card needs."

"just as pictured and suggested paper/finishes look great. No need to spend extra unless you want them to be super jazzy. Would definitely order them again!"

"I'm very pleased with how these invitations turned out - I was looking for a gender neutral design that deviated from the normal green/yellow themes. These were perfect, and look very high quality. I highly recommend having the envelopes printed as well - it saved so much time and was worth every penny. My only request would be to allow for some different font options for the envelopes so they're more customizable! Thanks for a great product!"
