Just because the expected baby isn’t the first, many people still feel that all babies deserve a special welcome to the world. Help the expectant parents celebrate with a baby shower for a second or subsequent child. Sometimes these showers are called “second time around” showers. Alternatively they may be called “sprinkle” showers because instead of the usual items given at showers that help first time parents set up the new nursery, sprinkle showers are for sprinkling good wishes along with those little helpful items that any baby needs, whether it’s the first or the sixth arrival to the family. Here are ideas for baby shower invitation wording to let your guests know the type of shower this will be.
On these invitations you will want to include all of the details your invited guests need to know about the party to be able to decide whether or not they can attend and how they can RSVP to the invitation. These details will include:
Guest of Honor
Time the shower begins
Time the shower will end
Place with address and directions, or GPS address if different from mailing address.
How to RSVP (unless these are formal invitations and you’ve included a response card, something which isn’t typical for a baby shower). RSVP information might include home phone number, cell phone number, email address.
Theme of shower if it applies.
