As I'm sure you already know, "She's got a bun in the oven." is a very old-fashioned way of telling someone that a woman is pregnant.
Yes, that was way before it was cool to show off your sonogram photos and people were probably referring to pregnancy in this way even before sonogram existed. Don't quote me on that. I'm not a history major so I can't verify if this is true or not.
It's still a very cute way of putting it and an adorable baby shower theme idea. If it were up to me, I'd turn this one into a Tea and serve Honey Buns on the side, of course.
You can plan a "Bun" shower at any time of the year but I think it's a "best idea" for an autumn or winter baby shower.
And yes! Zazzle does have personalized invites to go along with this fun shower idea. Thanks for asking.

The History of Bridal Showers
Did you know that the custom of throwing a bridal shower dates back to the time when dowries were popular? Friends of the woman to be wed began giving what is now known as a bridal shower to compensate women who came from poor families who couldn't afford a proper dowry, or for a woman whose father didn't approve of the marriage and refused to pay.
