A baby shower is a time of celebration. It is when family members and friends gather in one place to eat, be merry and exchange stories. It is not strange to find grandparents and would-be grandparents sharing anecdotes of their own about their children during the baby shower. Moms come with their own kids to share their bounty of old toys and clothes.
The organizer of a baby shower is usually the mother-to-be and the father-to-be. But in the occasion that the baby shower is a surprise party, the sister of the would-be-mom does the organizing. There are elements that must be considered. Are the friends and family members ready to attend? Is the date of the baby shower convenient for everyone? These questions need to be addressed before the actual week of the party.
Baby shower invitations play a huge role in the process of throwing a baby shower. Invitations should go out a month or so before the baby shower. Since it’s better to send these invites to friends and family members living away through snail mail, it is better to send them way ahead of time. A baby shower invitation should be especially received, and so it’s better to use actual paper than the digital counterpart (email). Sure, there are those that use email to invite people, but if you want to make the baby shower invite more memorable, use actual paper.
With just this piece of cardboard paper, you can convey so many feelings to those you wish to invite to the shower. Poems can bring about so many emotions, including feelings of gentleness and happiness. It would be great to incorporate the feelings from a special poem into your baby shower. You can add more meaning to the act of giving something for the baby, and sharing your excitement with your friends and family members.
A good type of poem to add to your baby shower invitation is the limerick. Limericks are small snippets that contain rhyme and a specific structure. The message should be witty, funny and fun to read. The limerick can be engraved or embossed on the front of the invitation for maximum exposure.
A poem of love written by the parents for the baby can also be used on the invitation. The poem can convey excitement and happiness at the coming of the baby. Everyone can join in and add lines to the poem before the printing. The poem need not be too long initially, so that everyone can add their sentiments.
