Traditionally, a baby shower is a “women only” affair held in honor of the mother-to-be. Today, however, baby showers for the expectant couple are gaining popularity and it is quite acceptable to include the father and his male friends.

With the date, time, location, and guest list completed, it’s now time to spread the word with printed baby shower invitations. If you have a small guest list, you can invite guests via phone or email, but printed invitations are still the preferred way to kick off a shower. Printed invitations allow you to set the tone and theme for the party. They also serve as a nice keepsake for the baby’s scrapbook, not to mention a handy reminder for the guests to keep on their refrigerators. Ideally, the invitations should be mailed three weeks (two weeks at the minimum) before the shower date.
