There’s nothing more gratifying than ushering a friend through a rite of passage. And there’s perhaps no rite of passage more significant than bringing a child into the world. So it’s important that you make a baby shower meaningful – but just as important that you make it fun. It’s a way to demonstrate that the friends who love and support her now will be the friends who love and support her in her new role as mom. Baby Shower Invitations

Along with Mixbook’s freshest new Baby Shower invitation designs, here are our top 4 favorite new ideas for baby showers!

1. Be Pedi Give out pink or blue nailpolish as party favors to every guest. If you know the baby’s gender, make the polish all pink or all blue. If you are keeping the gender a secret, let guests pick their color based on their guess.

2. Get Fruity While you will never catch me suggesting silly baby shower games involving diapers and candy bars or blindfolded sampling of pureed food, I am all for this fruity gimmick. It’s so silly it’s awesome: a baby carriage crafted out of a watermelon, cut fruit and a pacifier. Brilliant.

3. Solicit Advice Put out a jar with a sign that says “Baby Name Suggestions” so guests can weigh in on the big decision. Wait till after the party to read all the recommendations with the dad-to-be. It will absolutely be good for some big belly laughs (from him too) – and might even give you an idea or two!

A mason jar would work great for this, especially to match the burlap invitation above:

4. Be Bookish Let everyone at the party choose a letter from a hat. Then have them choose a noun that begins with that letter, and draw a picture on a white sheet of paper. Make sure each guest signs her name to the work of art. After the party, scan all the artwork for a group-made Mixbook Alphabet Book created just for the lucky baby! It will become a cherished memento that mom and child will love for years to come.
