How to create baby shower invitations for free

Baby showers, while not being known by that name, have been around for a long time. Baby showers, then as well as now, celebrate the transition into motherhood. You can create baby shower invitations for free by following the tips in this article.

Free templates

During the Victorian era, the rituals that celebrate this transition began to resemble more closely the baby shower as one knows it nowadays. The baby shower began in the 1950s and 60s. However, it was not until the 21st century that men were invited to attend. Free templates are available online for you to create your own free baby shower invitations. These templates have various designs as well as ways for you to personalise them. Some sites offer you the opportunity to create an invitation for boys only as well as one for girls only. Sites that offer these templates are Plan the Perfect Baby Shower, Invitationland, Baby Shower Planning Made Easy, and Happy Greetings.

e-Cards

If you prefer to create your free baby shower invitation as a virtual card only, then you can make your own invitation as an e-Card. The e-Cards come with various designs from which you can choose, and they offer you the opportunity to personalise them as you wish. Some of the e-Cards look like mini-movies, complete with a soundtrack. Sites that offer these free e-Cards are Magical Kingdom, e-Cards, Blue Mountain, Evite, and more.

Make your own

Baby shower invitations do not have to be done online - you can make your own designs. The cards can be drawn or painted, photo invitations, or a combination paper or fabric. If you have younger children, then you can invite your children to draw pictures that can be put on the cover of the baby shower invitations. If the shower is a surprise and you are the organiser, then you can invite the attendees to submit their own designs or drawings on a shower invitation that you all submit together. The invitation can be a gift when hand-done. When you have others involved, it makes them feel included, and make them feel as important parts in the event. Baby shower invitations could also be non-cards, such as small baskets filled with flowers from your garden with an accompanying note, and more.
