Article: Fourth of July themed baby shower invitation ideas

 If you are having you baby shower in the summer months, there is no better way to say "summer" than a holiday themed baby shower invitation for the Fourth of July. Incorporating the Independence Day theme can give you loads of inspiration for a clear color scheme and design franchise. Escape the heat with these red hot ideas for a Fourth of July themed Baby Shower. 

If you are having a Fourth of July themed baby shower, choose an invitation that speaks to your guests and communicates that not only is it the season for American pride, but also for your little bundle of joy to enter the world. Red, white and blue invitations can perfectly encompass your desire to stay patriotic, while providing a neutral color palate for boys, girls, or unisex. You can stick with just colors or patterns, or even choose an invitation with a baby cartoon, decked out in American patriotism from head to toe.

One of the most popular Fourth of July themed baby shower invitation ideas is to celebrate your "little firecracker". Using a play on words for the festive fireworks that ensue come July 4th, these invitations are bright and fun. This  "Little Firecracker" Baby Shower invitation is the perfect invitation to show your guests that you're ready to provide a good time as well as celebrate the impending birth of your baby. The adorable Uncle Sam baby adorning the invitation meshes both the holiday and the baby-to-be.

Choosing a red, white and blue baby shower invitation to fit your holiday themed Fourth of July shower is the starting point to what can be a very easy decorating scheme. Favors can be purchased in a cinch and matched to your All-American colors. Even a boring white outer envelope can be transformed into instant festive fun with a few stamps or embellishments in red or blue. Matching address labels and favor stickers can pull your entire theme together while keeping your shower fresh and hip.

Stars, stripes and flags are also a great way to keep with your Fourth of July themed baby shower. Invitations with stars and stripes are increasingly popular, as moms-to-be want a less traditional and more modern baby shower invitation. Colors can be modified from red, white and blue, to reflect a more gender conscious shower while still remaining patriotic and festive.

A great way to capitalize on your Fourth of July Baby Shower is to choose an invitation that encompasses one of the main activities associated with Independence Day: BBQ's! Simple barbecue themed invitations that mention and involve the Fourth of July can keep your baby shower invitation current yet pay homage to the time honored tradition of barbecuing with family and friends.

No matter what type of Fourth of July themed baby shower you choose, you should choose an invitation that showcases your style while incorporating a holiday theme for summer.
