motif. Available in many styles, these invitations often feature baby cartoons and soft orange pumpkins. This is a great invitation for the mom who wants to incorporate Halloween into her shower without going the scary route. Soft oranges and greens provide for a neutral color palate for the moms who do not know gender or wish to keep it a secret. If you did want a gender specific invitation, simple having a colored diaper or bow in the hair can denote a male or female baby while still keeping with your Halloween theme.
