It’s time to celebrate your latest arrival with a baby sprinkle party! What is a baby sprinkle, you ask? We like to think of it as a “lite” baby shower.

The firstborn usually arrives to great fanfare, often kicking off with a baby shower, which is meant to help the parents-to-be stock the nursery and check off items on a long list of baby necessities. The second-born and subsequent siblings—although they’re no less anticipated or loved—aren’t usually met with the same level of pomp and circumstance.

Baby sprinkles are very similar to showers, but they operate under the assumption that the parents-to-be already have a cache of baby stuff. So while a sprinkle doesn’t drench the new (again) parents in gifts, it does give them the opportunity to spend time with their favorite people and celebrate the arrival of a brand-new favorite person. Traditionally, baby sprinkle guests are women, but coed baby sprinkles are becoming more popular.

Who do you invite to a baby sprinkle?

Since it’s not the parents' first rodeo, a baby sprinkle is generally more casual and tight-knit than a baby shower. Invite immediate family members and your closest friends, but in general, leave acquaintances, coworkers, and distant relatives off the guest list unless they’re very special to you.

How to word a baby sprinkle invitation

If you’re not a professional writer, don’t fret—all our baby sprinkle invites come preformatted with charming text. If you’d like to put a personal spin on it, you can edit as much as you like.

For couples with a sense of humor, lean into the weather puns and open with, “Current forecast: A sprinkle of love with a flurry of cuteness.” Alternatively, stick to tried-and-true traditions with a classic “Our little one is on the way. Please honor us with your presence.” For more ideas and inspiration, read our guide to baby shower invitation wording.
