Well, now that the holidays are behind us, it’s time to start thinking about something new…how about Baby Showers??!! Most of my friends & family are done having kids, but I sure wish they weren’t! Boy, would I have a great time planning baby showers now! Don’t get me wrong…I was known to throw a good party or shower back in the day, but things would certainly be different now!
As you all probably know, my feeling is that the invitation is one of the most important parts of any event – you really set the tone for the entire party with that one little piece of paper!
When Minted asked me to review their site & collection of baby shower invites, I jumped at the chance – for a couple of reasons. First, if you haven’t heard of Minted, it’s an online shop where a community of independent designers from all around the world share their beautiful creations with us. They design amazing invitations, art prints, party decor and stationery and we (the public) are able to purchase those designs. It’s a way for designers to gain exposure and build their careers. This is one of the things I love about Minted. The other thing I love is that your invitations are printed using the highest quality paper, ink & printers. I’m a total sucker for nice, thick, gorgeous paper!
Most invitations are available in a couple different color combinations as well as different shaped cards – such a fun option! You can easily choose the colors, shape and wording of your invitation and see the changes immediately on your screen – no guessing what your final invitation is going to look like!
I thought I’d share some of my favorite designs I found for all types of baby showers – boy & girl invites, gender neutral, sip & see and gender reveals.
Sip & See Invitations
I love the fairly new idea of a Sip & See – basically it’s a baby shower after the baby is born. That way everyone gets to see the sweet, new little baby!
Gender Reveal Invitations
Another new trend I love – a shower where the gender of the baby is revealed to everyone – how fun is that??!!
Now remember, almost all of the designs above can be changed to fit either boy, girl or neutral. So if you see a design you love, but don’t love the color – you can probably change it – for free of course!
One more fabulous thing I have to tell you about – a lot of the invitations have coordinating party decor! How awesome is that?! You can order things like banners, straw flags, tent cards, cupcake toppers, stickers, confetti and more! It’s already printed and cut – ready for you to use at your event!
Okay, so for those of you that have upcoming baby showers to plan, I hope I’ve given you some great ideas for that crucial party element – the invitation. Be sure to visit Minted for tons more baby shower invitations, along with invitations for pretty much any occasion you can think of! I guarantee you’ll find a design that’s just perfect for your event.
