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.

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.

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.
