Free Baby Shower Invitation Wording - Useful Ideas and Inspiration

Are you looking for some free baby shower invitation wording ideas?

The baby shower is definitely one of the highlights of the nine months you spend carrying "junior" around like a giant, squirming watermelon stuffed into your tights.

I loved mine and wished I could do it again. I sat wedged in my friend's armchair, receiving gifts like a pasha and stuffing myself with cake and quiche. I didn't move the whole afternoon - until the end when it was time to haul the loot out to the car drive home.

Baby showers are an exciting time, and often the first time a mother-to-be realizes that, yes, she really is about to have a baby. The wording on the invitation for this transitional event is important and should reflect the type of party you're going to have.

Susie, the hostess for my shower, was a perfectionist. Everything was looked after to a tee, and that included the invites. She wrote them herself and had them printed on linen paper. My husband and I didn't find out ahead of time if it was a boy or a girl, so she kept the wording neutral. It took a while for me to find the card in my keepsake box, but when I did, it really did bring a tear to my eye to read it:

"You are invited to celebrate the imminent birth of Brian and Laura's precious first baby"

My baby was precious and born not long after the shower. That baby shower was a simple afternoon affair with quiche and cakes. Susie hired a couple of students from the local university to serve and clean up her townhouse. It was a sedate, intimate, and all-together civilized affair.

Other baby showers, however, can be raucous occasions with loads of family members, children running around, and tables piled high with fabulous presents. Are you seeking free baby shower invitation wordings for that kind of shower? If so, you may want wording such as this:

Roses are Red
Violets are Blue
Jane's Having a Baby
Time to gather the Crew!

A simple yet effective piece of free baby shower invitation wording.

Now, if you have a theme, stick to it in the look and feel of the invitations, and include that theme in your invitation wording. An example piece of free baby shower invitation wording here:

Jane's Motherhood Choo Choo train is about to pull into the station
Come join us at the station (Margie's house) to celebrate the new arrival

A touching invite could include a poem. If you have a literary bent or an ear for the classics, something like this Carl Sandburg poem, in a classic font face, could be right for you:

Baby Face by Carl Sandburg
White Moon comes in on a baby face.
The shafts across her bed are flimmering.
Out on the land White Moon shines,
Shines and glimmers against gnarled shadows,
All silver to slow twisted shadows
Falling across the long road that runs from the house.
Keep a little of your beauty
And some of your flimmering silver
For her by the window to-night
Where you come in, White Moon.

And always remember - include date, time, location and registry details in the invite! If people can't get there, your beautiful invite will go to waste!
