Cool baby shower invitations aren’t always easy so come by, what with showers tending to overflow with oohing and aahing and sweetness pink and blue everything. Nothing wrong with that at all. But if your parenting style is a bit more wry, I’ve put together some of my favorite cool baby shower invitations that make me smile for reasons more than “a baby’s coming!” Trust me, you’ll need to keep that sense of humor once that little guy or gal is here .
If you’re still in shock over the news of your impending arrival–or you’re known for spending way too much time texting–the OMG! She’s Having a Baby invitations at Paper Source are a fun idea for your baby shower.
Long before you force-feed your guests baby food or have them make diapers out of towels for prizes, let the shower games begin with this Stain Identifier baby shower invitation by Dwell Studio for Tiny Prints. (And by the way, we stand by the notion that actual stain identifying games are no fun at all, but the invitations definitely are.
If you’re truly adventurous, or you simply can’t agree on that challenging baby-naming decision, ask your friends to bring their picks to a Name the Baby shower with these invitations by Melanie Sevarin for Minted that even offer up prizes. Daring! And potentially very very useful.
I think this is how a lot of us feel, so the We’ve Created a Monster card makes for a super cool baby shower invitation from Etsy’s My July. Of course we assume that it’s hyperbolic, and no one is actually giving birth to Rosemary’s Baby.
Yeah, maybe it’s becoming a little used, but the Keep Calm and Diaper On baby shower invitation at PaperStyle makes me smile. Especially if your guest of honor has no idea what he or she is in for. By the way, love that this is a great invitation for co-ed baby showers, since more and more dads are getting into the game too.
Way back when, we fell in love with the cool shower invitations from Rattle-N-Roll which are designed to look like hip custom concert posters customized with your baby. They accept custom orders now if you contact them directly through their website. For those about to be born, we salute you!
The “She’s Gonna Pop” theme is popular and so I really love this custom Pop! baby shower invitation created by Gus & Ruby; the candy tones of the She’s Ready to Pop shower invitation at Minted; and the pink or blue balloon baby shower invitation fromPaper Source. [h/t LilSugar]
These Goo Gah Baby Shower Invitations invitations by The Social Type for Minted have me giggling–and a little in love with this fun font combination.
Send age-appropriate cheers with this baby bottle shower invitation by Picklelily for Minted. Just uh, please dont’ make your own guests drink their beverages from bottles. At least the adult ones.
This Burgers, Beer, and Baby Talk shower invitation invitation by Hello Little One for Tiny Prints is perfect for more of the baby showers we’ve been seeing lately. Burgers over little cucumber sandwiches? We could get into that for sure.
