Article: African American Baby Shower Invitations

Finding an African American baby shower invitation is not as difficult as it once was. Celebrate the mother's heritage and the new baby with a personalized baby shower invitation reflecting their African American roots. Choosing a baby shower invitation that features a black mom, couple or baby goes the extra step to ensure that the parents feel the personalization and work you've put into planning the baby shower.

Keep the invitation simple by using choosing a pink and brown invitation for mothers expecting a baby girl that features an African American baby. Or, if the mother is expecting a baby boy, choose a brown and blue invitation. Personalize the invitation further by adding a short poem or by including the baby-to-be's name and where the couple is registered.

Or, incorporate a theme into your baby shower invitation. A blooming baby shower invitation featuring a black baby boy or girl blooming in a flower pot is a precious way to invite guests to your party. A sports themed baby shower invitation is a perfect invitation for an active family welcoming a new baby. Or if you want to give the mom-to-be a little pampering before her sleepless nights and exhausting days, throw her a spa baby shower with graphics depicting a pregnant mother-to-be relaxing and getting pampered.

Are you hosting the baby shower around the holidays? Choose an African American baby shower invitation that highlights the upcoming holiday. A little pumpkin baby shower invitation with a black baby poking its head out of a pumpkin is perfect for a fall baby shower. Choose a Christmas themed baby shower invitation with the baby wearing a Santa suit or a Winter Wonderland invitation with snowflakes for baby showers during the Christmas season. Ask guests to bring a small unwrapped gift related to the holiday for the baby - a bib, an ornament, or even a small toy or blanket. You can then incorporate all of these small items into a fabulous holiday-themed diaper cake for your centerpiece for the baby shower.

If the mother-to-be is expecting twins or triplets, twins in a pod or triplets in a pod are the perfect invitations to announce their miracle while staying true to her African American heritage.

Whether the mother is expecting a boy, a girl, keeping it a surprise, or even expecting twins or triplets, you can find the perfect baby shower invitation. There are so many options available for baby showers for African American couples than there were in the past. Online retailers with talented designers can even re-design baby shower invitations with other races to depict black babies, mothers and couples. All you need to do is ask.
