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%.
Pineapple fruit designs are popping up everywhere and that certainly includes at summer baby showers. Most of the fresh little pineapples for baby are super cute. Some have funny faces, while others, like the one I've chosen to show you today is simply chic and filled with whimsy.
Today'sOne Amazing Invite is a gorgeous watercolor pineapple design that has a fun teal color theme with palm trees, coconuts, fronds, and pretty tropical flowers.
And it's not just for a Pineapple theme baby shower, no sir. This design would also be perfect for a beach, tropical, or fruit-filled baby shower. In fact, it would work well for any summer baby shower being held inside or out, but of course if you please, you can use this fun pineapple theme all year long.
This invite measure 5" x 7" and comes with an envelope and Zazzle's 100% satisfaction guarantee.
This amazing watercolor pineapple design is also available on several matching items and for other occasions.
Visit the Tropical Pineapple Collection to see them all.
I found this funPineapple Decoration set at Amazon that looks like it would be a great addition to the party.
Sometimes the best baby showers are the ones that are the simplest to plan. If you're looking for easy breezy summer baby shower ideas here's five themes that basically plan themselves.
Ice Cream Baby Shower
Make it an ice cream theme baby shower!
Planning an ice cream baby shower in the summer is about as simple as it can get and it's pure genius on a hot summer's day. I bet you're already thinking of all the possibilities.
The best way is to buy a few containers of ice cream and a bunch of yummy toppings. Then, all you have to do is set it all up on a table and let everyone help themselves.
Take it one step further (and easier) by only buying the toppings in matching colors. Pink for a girl or blue if it's a boy.
You can narrow this fun theme down even further by making it a milk shake or ice cream cone shower.
To keep it really easy and simple, don't even plan on having any other foods.
You see. I told you these were easy to plan.
How much ice cream do I need for an Ice Cream Baby Shower?
On average, a gallon of ice cream will serve approximately 16 people a 1 cup serving of ice cream and 10 people a 1 1/2 cup serving of ice cream. A scoop of ice cream is about 1/2 cup (4 ounces), and a typical serving is about three scoops, or 1 1/2 cups (12 ounces) of ice cream. ~ Reference.com
Lemonade Baby Shower
This isn't about Queen B's Lemonade. This is all about the sweet lemony drink that everyone craves in the summertime.
The only beverages you need to offer for this one is pink or white lemonade and maybe have some bottled water and hot tea (with lemons) on hand for anyone who doesn't like this citrusy concoction.
You'll simply serve lemon cookies and lemon cakes. Think that might be a bit boring? Think again! Visit this link to find 27 Different Delicious Lemon Desserts at Buzzfeed.com.
Lemon Drop candies in bowls and plenty of fresh lemons on the table would look divine!
BBQ Baby Shower
There's nothing easier than having a summer BBQ baby shower bash. And this theme is by far THE most popular baby shower theme if you're planning a couple's baby shower.
There are no hard and fast rules for this one either. Whatever you like to toss on the grill in abundance is what should go on the BBQ baby shower menu.
And while you're tossing, toss a couple of salads for sides, make some cupcakes, and you are done.
Plan for it to be held outdoors, in the shade, if you can.
This is a terrific way to host a baby shower that's comfortable and casual for everyone, including the mommy and daddy-to-be.

4th of July Baby Shower
Another fun way to shower the happy parents-to-be is to throw them a 4th of July party that they'll never forget!
It's a Barbecue. It's a baby shower. It's the 4th of July. It's the EASIEST way to surprise the expectant couple. Everyone is getting together anyway... have them bring along a little something-something for baby and you've got yourself a great and super easy summer baby shower theme. Everything is red, white, and blue.
Tropical Fruit Baby Shower
A truly refreshing and unique summer baby shower theme revolves around tropical fruit.
Have you ever stopped to think just how cute a heart-shaped strawberry is? How about kiwi slices and plump little blueberries? Adorable, no?
Fresh fruit in the summer is so refreshing and cool on a hot day. The menu for your tropical fruit theme baby shower can include all kinds of fruit smoothies, pies, and fruit salad.
Instead of a cake you can make this easy fresh fruit pizza recipe that I found at Pillsbury.com.
This theme is super unique, fun and also pretty healthy!
Of course if the mother-to-be has a favorite, you can make your food choices and shower theme just about that, such as a watermelon, peach or strawberry baby shower. A rainbow of fruit choices awaits you!

At least, we think it's the cutest combination nautical and Teddy bear theme baby shower invitation. Do you agree?
While searching for a cute Teddy bear baby shower invite to share with you in honor of National Teddy Bear Day, I fell flat on my face in love with this one!
O.M.G. It's simply adorable in a rustic chic kind of way. So, for the mother-to-be who loves Teddies, for those planning a nautical baby shower, or for anyone looking for an amazing summer time shower theme, take a look!
The design features an amazing illustration of a sailboat on a calm sea with the sun and sea gulls overhead and a little brown Teddy bear at the tiller. There's a bunting banner overhead that spells out Baby Shower. The lettering is done in interesting typography using black and blue ink. The rounded corners add to its adorable appeal.
These invitations are 5" x 7", made in the USA and come complete with a standard envelope.
Beer and BBQ Baby Shower Invitations
Are you looking for a fun baby shower theme that won't scare the guys away? If you're planning a couples baby shower you can't go wrong with using a beer theme.
Of course, the mother-to-be can't imbibe but everyone else can enjoy a cold one in honor of the expected little guy or gal. And if you're planning to fire up the grill and BBQ for the occasion, nothing beats a beer to wash down all those burgers and hot dogs.
This fun theme idea is perfect for spring and summer but if your weather holds up, it can certainly work during a warm fall day too.
Baby Brewing Baby Shower Invitations
Here's a few of our favorite personalized baby shower invites created especially for a beer and BBQ theme baby shower.
And there's plenty more cute designs to see!
You'll be able to purchase as many or as few invites as you need. Each one comes with a standard white envelope and Zazzle's 100% satisfaction guarantee.
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.

Throw a Super Sunshiny Baby Shower for the Mommy-To-Be
Like so many others, the song You Are My Sunshine, holds a very dear place in my heart. It's the first song I remember my mother singing to me when I was a child and it was also the very first song I learned to sing myself.
Since it holds a special place in the hearts of so many, and so many babies are welcomed into the world with it, using that song as a reference makes planning a cheerful Sunshine baby shower super easy and especially fun.
The theme can be successfully used for either a girl or a boy and it's perfect for when you don't yet know the baby's gender.
Sunshine Baby Shower Invitations
Cute sunshine yellow baby shower invites can be used for either a girl or a boy baby. Click on your favorite to learn more.
The first thing you're going to need after making a list of intended guests to invite are some theme-related baby shower invitations.
Keep in mind that the invite design style you choose will set the tone for the party. If you're planning an all-out traditional shower complete with games, you'll want the invites to be absolutely adorable. If the mommy-to-be is more laid back, choose something cool and casual. Then again, if your party is going to be a bit on the sophisticated side, make your invitation design match that mood.
I do suggest sending real found-in-the-mailbox invites as opposed to evites.
Evites tend to get lost or forgotten more quickly than one that's made of paper and received in the mail.
And do send them so that your intended guests receive them about a month before the party date. That gives people plenty of time to clear their calendar for the celebration date.
Blue You Are My Sunshine Baby Shower Invitations
Here's two adorable You Are My Sunshine Baby Shower Invites that feature the color blue. They would be great to use for the expected baby boy but if you're a fan of the smooth shade, I think they'd work just as well for a little girl.
