Halloween is a great time to host a baby shower! Your guests will already be in a festive mood because of the season. You can easily build on the excitement of the holiday to create a memorable Halloween themed baby shower.
A Halloween themed baby shower invitation is the perfect way to invite your guests to the baby shower. Send out a cute Lil' pumpkin themed invitation to get your guests attention. With the orange and green color theme and featuring a cute little baby sitting on a pumpkin, they're sure to be a hit with your guests, and treasured by mom-to-be for years to come. The invitations can even feature babies of different nationalities, so you can celebrate the heritage of the baby and the parents-to-be you're your Halloween themed baby shower invitation. With all the activities going on at this time of year, remember to send out the invitations to you baby shower at least one month in advance to be sure to get on your guests' calendars.
Once you've chosen a cute invitation, you need to be sure that you are including some basic information about the baby shower. You'll want to include the new mom's name and the baby's name or gender if the parents are sharing it, the date and time of the shower, the location, an RSVP number or email address along with a date to respond by, and the mom-to-be's registry information.
You'll also want to include any special instructions you have for your guests. For example, are you planning a costume Halloween baby shower? Ask guests to come dressed up as their favorite nursery rhyme character. Or are you asking guests to bring a package of diapers or other baby items to be used as decorations for them to be entered in a prize drawing? Let guests know in the invitation what is going to be expected of them.
When you've gathered all of your information, you can begin to work out a creative way to word your invitation. For example, if you know the gender of the baby, you could start your invitation out with “Let's celebrate on this special day, Mommy's little pumpkin in on her (or his) way!” Or, if the mom-to-be is expecting a boy, begin your invitation with something like “Come join in the spooktacular joy, Jennifer is having a boy!” A lot of parents are choosing to wait to find out the gender of their baby until their due date. If you are looking for a gender neutral beginning to your invitation, try something like “Samantha's baby will be here in a flash, let's celebrate with a Halloween bash!”
A few finishing touches will add a lot of punch to your baby shower invitations. Purchase coordinating return address labels and thank you notes to make it easier for the mom-to-be to thank the guests for joining in the celebration. You could also include matching notes of advice, stickers and party favors for an even more cohesive Halloween baby shower theme.
Have fun with your Halloween themed baby shower and ensure that your guests will have a spooktacular time!
