Baby Showers, however considered as an American tradition rather that something we do here in the UK, has become increasingly obvious to the Baby Christening Invitations team, that is becoming more and more popular in Britain. So, listening to our customers wishes, we have created a beautiful range of new Baby Shower.
Apparently, the tradition was that a group of women (relatives and friends) would meet with a first time mother to celebrate the imminent arrival of her first born child, and to share advice, tips and stories as she approached motherhood. At the shower, the women not only share advice and stories. They may also play games such as guessing the baby’s date of birth, weight, sex, etc. although not all showers include games.
Baby Showers take often takes place in the mother’s house, however many celebrations are held at hired venues e.g. restaurants, hotels. Some even hold their shower at a spa for a day of pampering. This proves that the Baby Shower is celebrated as an occasion as big as a Christening or a Birthday.
The guests at the shower are expected to bring gifts for the mother and/or baby and these would normally be opened at the shower as part of the course of the party. The party is occasionally decorated around a theme sometimes personal to the mother, or more general themes are used like “It’s a Boy!” with a blue colour scheme, for example.
All in all, the sentiment of the Baby Shower is what is most appealing – where a mum-to-be is surrounded by her closest female friends and family supporting her and celebrating the coming of a new baby.
So, if you are considering organising a baby celebration take a look into our collection of baby shower invitations and christening invitations and remember that they are very important. They give your guests their first glimpse at what your event is going to involve and provides them with key information, e.g. venue, dress code, theme, and gift list (if you have one).
