Having a baby shower in the warm weather months? Well, then there is no better way to say "party" than a barbecue at someone's home. Many new mothers opt to have their baby showers in a home for a more comfortable atmosphere and relaxed low-key party. The cozy feel and homestyle food choices make for the perfect party for friends and family to celebrate your impending new arrival. If you are having a shower at home, a BBQ is a wonderful way to bring your food, decoration, invitation and favor choices together.
The BBQ theme is a wonderful way to keep your party cohesive and fresh. There are many design choices and often the best first impression is given with a BBQ themed baby shower invitation. The Baby Shower BBQ Party invitation
features a grill and bright colors, highlighting the fact that good old fashioned American fare will be key. This is a perfect invitation for the mom who want a less "babyish" shower invitation.
For moms who do in fact want an invitation with a baby feel that still alerts guests to the BBQ theme, soft shades and light colors adorn invitation that play on the words "still cooking" and "grilling" with reference to the baby. Many BBQ themed baby shower invitations
even feature adorable cartoon babies doing the grilling wearing an apron and holding grill utensils. These trendy and unique invitations blend modern flare with traditional barbecue icons.
Some invitations for a BBQ baby shower do not overtly feature illustrations and graphics screaming "barbecue!". Summer themed invitations depicting beaches, pools and outdoor activities can convey a message that the shower will be a home based shower and barbecue-type food will be served. Having a shower at home is often more cost effective and a BBQ theme, with matching invitations and favors, is a perfect way to have an amazing shower for the host on a budget. Especially for a shower honoring a second or third child, a BBQ theme is a great way to have a low-key party while still gathering to welcome your new arrival.
Other ways to pull in your baby shower barbecue theme is with favors and decorations that go with your theme. Barbecue Candy Bar Wrappers are an excellent idea to give for favors. The soft colors, with the silhoetted mom-to-be merges shower and BBQ and is a favor everyone can really enjoy. The "nutrition facts" convey all the cute and full of love sentiments having to do with the baby, while the chocolate is just an added bonus! Other matching elements can bring all of your decorations together and make for a memorable shower.
No matter what type of invitation you choose or favors you incorporate, choose a theme that lets your guest know that your shower will be a memory not to be forgotten. Just like the summer BBQs you went to a child, your shower will be ingrained in guests' minds as a fun filled time for all that featured good food, friends and laughter. What a perfect way to welcome a baby into an American tradition that they will surely partake in many time in their life.
