Sprinkling a Mom With Gifts
Have you heard of a baby shower but are not quite sure what a sprinkle might be, besides a gentle spring rainstorm? Lightly ‘sprinkling’ a mom-to-be with little presents for an upcoming baby has become a popular trend, replacing a full blown baby shower in some cases. Sprinkles are especially popular when a mom already has children and doesn’t need too many extra things for the new baby but still wants to celebrate the birth. Hosting a sprinkle is similar to hosting a baby shower, but not quite as intensive. Sprinkles, whether they have a set theme or not, are simple, easy ways to have fun with a mom before she welcomes home the newest member of the family.
Customize Invitations to Your Sprinkle
Start off the planning process by customizing sprinkle baby shower invitations that give guests an idea of what the theme is (if any), what they should bring, what will be provided and other essential party details. All of the information that you might include on a baby shower invitation, such as name, date, time, location, baby sex (unless it’s a gender reveal) and registry info, should be added to your sprinkle invitation. You can choose to customize the invite further with a photo, message or a unique graphic or image that sets the tone for the event to come.

Unique Invitation Options
Sprinkle invitation choices range from cute and simple, such as our Baby Sprinkle Boy invite, to sweet and fun, such as our Sprinkling Hearts girl invite, depending on the look and colors that you are going for. Of course, you could always opt to start with a regular baby shower invitation and add the word sprinkle onto it as you personalize it. Regardless, guests will know the event is more of a light rain than a downpour of gifts, but a lavish amount of love all the same.
If you are expecting, consider sending loved ones custom pregnancy announcement cards. For more ideas and inspiration on sprinkle baby shower invitations, check out our resources on the Shutterfly Ideas blog.
