Red poppy flowers done in watercolor designs on baby shower invitations make for a super cute, trendy, and totally on fleek theme for the momma-to-be's special day.
They're pretty, informational and extremely stylish.
Although, flowers might make some people think of girls, we think the unisex red and green theme that runs through these sweet invitations can be used for either a girl OR a boy.
First up is the top seller (as of this post) at Zazzle. It features a garden filled with pretty poppies and all of your personalized information on the front with the cutest green and white polka dot pattern on the back.
Poppies symbolize peace and looking at this gorgeous red poppy wreath design we can see why. The stylish fonts add to the look and we love the way it coordinates with the green and white pattern on the back.
The watercolor poppy flower border (and pattern on the back) on this baby shower invite is simply stunning. We can see why the designer named it "Beautiful".
The simplicity of this design featuring a single red poppy in a mason jar goes a long way towards making this one of our very favorites.
We think the black background on this custom baby shower invitation gives it a sophisticated look. If you're looking for a more elegant baby shower invite, this would be the one for you.
And last, but certainly not least when it's this pretty, we're featuring a red poppy baby shower invitation where the watercolor poppies look like they're growing wild in the meadow. Stunning!
These can absolutely be used year round but they'd be especially perfect for a spring or summer shower. Each of our featured designs were created by the shopkeepers who sell their art at Zazzle.com. They are individually priced and many of them can be customized for size, paper type, and shape. Your choices will determine the cost. Personalizing is always free and your satisfaction is guaranteed 100%.
If you're looking for a unique baby shower theme that's also super chic and just plain gorgeous... take a look at these Glitter Carousel Horse baby shower invitations!
The design features a pretty carousel horse that's embellished with gold glitter. (The effect is purely photographic. There's no real glitter to fall off and make a mess.) There are pink and blue mini-pattern bunting banner flags at the top of the invite and a pink heart on top of the carousel pole.
They're easy to personalize, measure a big 5" x 7", come complete with a standard envelope and also a 100% satisfaction guarantee from the manufacturer.
The back of these invites have a pink with white polka dots pattern making them especially nice to welcome a baby girl.
They work well for a circus theme baby shower or a carousel horse baby shower but would also be perfect if the theme is simply something chic, elegant, and glittery.
If these aren't your cup of tea, there's plenty more where these came from.
If your new snuggle bunny is due sometime this coming spring, why not have a bunny themed baby shower for the little girl or boy?
If the shower is being held any time near Easter, or if the mother-to-be is partial to rabbits, that's even better! But we think these invites are so cute that you'll want to use them for an anytime baby shower as well.
I love this bunny design with the gray background. I think it gives it a baby soft feeling when I look at it but if you prefer a darker background, this same design is available for boys and girls set on a black chalkboard background.
If the parents are expecting twins, well... there's double the cuteness in store!
And if you're not sure of the baby's gender yet, there's a pretty neutral yellow one that works for either a girl or a boy.

Looking for a hot new theme for your baby shower?
One of the fastest growing party theme trends is using succulent plants. Succulents are plants that are usually found in an arid climate, like what you'd find in the southwestern USA. They have fat fleshy leaves to help them retain water.
Their unique rustic beauty makes for some truly gorgeous invitation designs and the little plants make delightful party favors that everyone loves. You'll see succulents blooming at a lot of weddings and bridal showers and now, with these sweet invites, you can even have a succulent themed baby shower.

I just received the April 2014 edition of Martha Stewart Living and low and behold, she was featuring an adorable baby shower idea that I just had to share with you.

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.
