When you start planning a baby shower party, a ton of details will need to be dealt with. In order to get a handle on the entire operation, the first step to take is picking a theme. Once you have a theme to work with, the rest of your preparation will revolve around it. The theme can be anything from a color scheme to a favorite action figure. Additional ideas are floral themes, teddy bears and baby products. It is appropriate to use nuetral colors if you don't know the sex of the baby. For this purpose, stick to shades of yellow and green. If you know the gender of the baby to be, you can use the appropriate pink or blue.

Take the mother to be opinion into account when you choose the theme for the baby shower party. Present her with all of your ideas and then let her make the final decision. Another good idea is to consult her close friends and relatives.

They will probably be familiar with her tastes and styles. Show the mother to be the various baby shower party invitations you have found and let her select the favorite. She must be pleased with the final product because it will serve to remind her of this happy event for years to come.

The lasting impression, on the other hand, will remain in everyone's memory far into the future.

Put another way, the invitation is the welcome the child has to the world! Make sure that the invitation is eye catching and pleasing.? The ideal time to mail out the invitations is several weeks prior to the baby shower party.

This is especially important from guests that are going to be arriving fromfar away.

Once the style and design of the invitations is complete, write the content of the invitations. The basic neccesary that you need to communicate are the time, place and date of the baby shower pary. It may be wise to also show a map of the area. Provide a phone number or email account that the guests can RSVP to.? Traditionally, baby shower parties are attended by women only. Nowadays many parties are mixed, so be sure to make it clear on the invitation if the guys are also invited!?? The next decision invovles the printing of the invitations.
