Shopping for the Best Baby Shower Invitations & Birth Announcements

Birth Announcement from Basic InviteIf you’ve been reading this blog for the past 8 years, you’ll already know that I’m the proud mother to two adorable children. My beautiful daughter is now 8 years old and my handsome son is 21 months. My two children are my entire world!

* We’ve partnered with this company to bring you this feature.

My best friend for the past 20 years is pregnant with her first child and is due in November of this year. As her BFF, I’m in-charge of planning and hosting her very first baby shower! It’s going to be a beautiful celebration honoring the parents-to-be and the new little life that they’ve created.

Now that I’ve set the date for the shower and reserved the party location, it’s time to shop for baby shower invitations.

* Custom Samples – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation, so they can see exactly how it will print, as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order.

* Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes – Basic Invite is just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their invitations. Customers can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes, so that they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.

Baby Shower Invitation from Basic Invite

Throughout my post you’ll see images of three of my favorite baby shower invitations and birth announcements that I found while browsing Basic Invite. As you can see, they’re creative, unique and beautiful. I picked out baby girl and baby boy designs, because we won’t know until later this month the sex of the baby. Exciting times for sure!

Now that I’m planning the parents-to-be’s baby shower, I would love to get some feedback from all of our blog readers. Head on over to and come back here to tell me which baby shower invitations and birth announcements are your personal favorites? Looking to connect with the company?

    This is a very unique site for shopping and customizing baby shower invitations. I wish I had know about it sooner. I think that these cards are nicer than the ones we found for my granddaughter’s birth.

  2. I will be having a baby shower for the daughter of a good friend in September so these will be interesting for me to look at and decide which to send. Think we will know soon if it is a boy or a girl. These are darling invites.
