Top invitation inspiration

1. Gender-neutral baby shower invitations

If the parents aren’t interested in learning the gender of their baby before it’s born or simply aren’t looking to reinforce gender stereotypes, a gender-neutral baby shower can be a simple way to celebrate without leaning too heavily toward pink or blue.

Opt for neutral colors — rustic browns and other earthy tones are in right now.


2. Funny baby shower invitations

Have you always been the class clown? Follow your natural comedic talent straight to a humorous baby shower invite.

Whether you’re a fan of puns, like an unusually shaped invitation or looking to rely on good ol’ toilet humor (babies need to go, a lot), you’ve got plenty of options.


3. Casual baby shower invitations

If you’re a chilled-out couple hoping for a chilled-out birth, gear up for your goals with your shower invite. Simplicity is elegant, and you can be sure that the less fuss, the less stress — all the better for you and the baby.

A straightforward, minimalist invite needs only say a few simple things: where to go, what time to be there and who to call. Simple and oh so elegant!


4. Gender-reveal baby shower invitations

Waiting with bated breath to find out the gender of your baby? Gender reveals are getting bigger and bigger, largely due to explosions of color and surprises broadcast on social media.

Make your invite just as bold! Go big on the puns, deck out your invite in bold blues and pinks or run with rainbow colors.


5. Black-and-white baby shower invitations

Your baby shower could very well be the last adult party you attend before your little one arrives. Make the most of it with an elegant, adult evening with black-and-white themes throughout.

This theme is easy to pull off, and you can even request your guests stick to a black-and-white dress code for fun photos.


6. Themed baby shower invitations

Maybe you live and breathe pop culture or were practically born in your favorite team’s jersey. Whatever your “thing,” have a little fun by centering your baby shower on it.

After you’ve picked your theme, all that’s left to do is go all out. Like Harry Potter? Hello Hogwarts letter!
