Baby boy shower themes

The best way to bring personality to any party is with a theme. Paperless Post has plenty of ideas for adorable baby shower themes with invitations to match, including ever-popular animal themes. Opt for a tried-and-true woodland baby shower, or go larger-than-life with an elephant-themed shower. Whatever theme you choose, head to Paperless Post Party Shop for all of the decorations and party supplies you need—we’ve got decor depicting animals, moon and stars, and woodland themes, to name just a few.

Customizing a baby boy shower invitation

Paperless Post invitation templates are customizable, from the font type and color to the word spacing and text blocks. Have a lot of information to share but don’t want to clutter your invitation? Our design Blocks are here to save the day. Add a Registry Block with up to 10 links, or include a Details Block with parking info or a schedule of activities. Blocks show up immediately below the invitation as guests scroll down. To put the finishing touches on your invitations, choose a coordinating envelope, liner, stamp, and backdrop.

What to include in a baby shower invitation for a boy?

Every baby shower invitation template comes with standard wording that’s fully customizable—keep it as-is, make minor changes, or write it from scratch. Include the basics—the guest of honor, the venue, the date and time, and the RSVP-by date. For additional information, use Blocks.

Who do you invite to a baby shower?

Anyone you like can be invited to your baby shower. The obvious guests include immediate family members, close friends, and extended relatives. You can also invite coworkers, the midwife or doula, and anyone else close to you. While many parents opt to keep the guest list to around 15 to 30 people, others celebrate with a huge party of over 50 guests. The beauty of a modern baby shower is that there are no steadfast rules—whether it’s an intimate sip-and-see or a boisterous blow-out, you can get as creative as you want with planning your baby shower and invite anyone and everyone who’s important to you.

When to send boy-themed baby shower invitations?

Send your baby shower invitations at least three weeks before the event if most of the guests live nearby. If you’re inviting several people who will need to make travel plans, send them up to six weeks in advance. To get the best turnout, plan the shower for a Saturday or Sunday. Paperless Post makes it easy to send your invitations. Add your guest list, and send the invitations via email, text, or shareable link. Our guest management tools include real-time RSVP tracking and guest messaging for sending reminders to individuals or updates to the whole guest list. Once the shower is over, the guest contact information is still in your address book, making it super easy to send birth announcements once your baby boy arrives.
