The arrival of a soon-to-be, little addition is more than enough reason to have a huge celebration! Whether it’s a shower for first time parents or a sprinkle for an expecting mama welcoming baby #2, #3, or more, we’ve got the scoop for you on the ins and outs of baby shower invitation etiquette. Read on!


Who should host?

  • Just about anyone can host a baby shower; friends, family, colleagues. Plus, multiple hosts can divide and conquer several tasks!

When to host the shower?

  • Plan on having the shower 2 to 3 months prior to baby’s arrival. This will give the expectant parents enough time to get into full nesting mode before baby’s arrival! They will appreciate the time to organize gifts, arrange baby’s nursery, and purchase last minute items.

When should the invitations be mailed?

  • Send out invitations 4 to 6 weeks before the shower date.

Tip:: Skip the post office and let Red Stamp address and mail your cards for you, just for the cost of the postage stamp.


Who should be invited?

  • Showers aren’t just for ladies anymore. Invite friends and family of both future parents {including the guys!}. It can be fun to get the men involved, especially when it comes to the games {cue the giggles and laughs}.

How to choose the perfect invite?

  • Start with a theme or color scheme. Use this as inspiration for the party décor, favors, and refreshments too. Consider including baby’s gender, the expectant parent’s style, or a fun nursery theme; the options are endless! Stick to one theme to keep it simple.
