Article: Baby Shower Invitations for Boys

Waiting the arrival of a new baby boy is an exciting time for the parents-to-be, the extended family, and their friends.  Baby showers are so much fun – and a lot of work. Choosing the perfect baby shower invitation to welcome a baby boy can provide inspiration for the color scheme and the theme for your entire event.  

With so many invitation themes available, here are a few suggestions specifically for baby boys to help you get started:

Keep it conservative with traditional blue. If the majority of the guests you are inviting to the baby shower are older family members that tend to be more conservative, you may want to choose a traditional baby shower invitation. A traditional baby shower invitation will make it easier for them to relate to the event, feel more comfortable about attending the party, and really get excited and look forward to the baby shower. A sweet blue and white Baby Shower Invitation with teddy bearsrubber duckies, or baby bottles and diapers are great options to keep the invitation conservative, but so cute that your guests will want to display it on their fridge or their mantle. 

Make it contemporary for the modern mom-to-be. If you’re holding a baby shower for a modern mom-to-be with young, hip guests, a contemporary baby shower invitation is just what you’re looking for. Choose an invitation with a contemporary color scheme. Current color trends for modern baby shower invitations for boys include aqua, yellow, blue and lime green.  A sleek and modern design with clean lines will keep your baby shower invitation looking posh and polished. 

Let nature inspire you.  For parents-to-be and guests that love the outdoors, an animal or nature themed baby shower invitation is a perfect choice. A dinosaur baby shower invitation is always a hit for baby boys. You may also want to consider a farm animal theme or a fun monkey theme for the invitation. There are also adorable garden themed baby shower invitations for boys that use blues and greens or bugs and insects. 

Let’s play ball!  From baseball to football to soccer, sports themed baby shower invitations for boys are a home run – and are a great way to involve the father-to-be. Plan the baby shower around a favorite sport or a favorite sports team to make it a more personal experience for the parents. 

Get ready to party! If your guests are going to be a young, energetic crowd, choose a baby shower invitation that can keep up with them. Use a circus or a beach themed invitation to get your guests attention and follow through with appropriate games and party favors. 

Remember, choose the invitation that best fits with the parent’s and guests personalities, the theme of your party, and the décor for a perfect baby shower invitation to a fun and fabulous baby shower.
