The planning might require a lot of preparations—thanks to Shutterfly, making the invitations is a simple and fun part of the job.
Designing the Invitation
First things first… decide on the guest list. What kind of baby shower do you want to throw the new parents? Will the shower be attended by ladies only, or is it a Jack and Jill party? Is the baby shower going to be a casual, family-only get-together, or will it be an elegant affair with plenty of guests?
Shutterfly has dozens of designs and templates to help you pick the perfect card. Be sure to send out the invites a few weeks in advance to allow everyone ample time to make arrangements. Be sure to include the day, time and place of the shower and include your information as well for RSVPs. If there is a registry, be sure to include that information on the invitation so guests know what the soon-to-be parents want most.
Planning the Party
Baby showers have all sorts of baby shower food and fun games to play, usually at the humorous expense of the soon-to-be mom. Decorations are playful and can be themed to match the personality of the parents. Everyone can have fun and the new parents will surely appreciate all the baby shower wishes and messages, presents and advice. Crafting a personalized greeting straight from the heart is never easy, it can be tough to determine just what to write in a baby shower card for the parents-to-be. Add a personal touch to your greeting and make sure to say it sweetly with our fun collection of cute baby shower quotes. In addition to baby shower greetings, soon to be parents will be receiving a handful of gifts as well. Although the new parents may have registered somewhere for gifts, the chances are that they will take photo after photo of their new baby. You really can’t go wrong with a personalized photo frame as a baby shower gift for the new mom and dad.
After the Baby Arrives
Once the new baby comes, the parents will probably have their hands full. A great gift for new parents post-birth is a set of thank you cards for boys or girls (as well as a “coupon” to babysit their new bundle of joy). As soon as the photos start coming (and they will) you can use Shutterfly to turn all of the precious memories into beautiful decorations like custom canvas prints, engraved photo frames and other personalized pieces.
