Before you can choose gorgeous butterfly baby shower invitations, you’ll need to nail down a few party details. If you’re hosting a baby shower for a close friend or family member, start by discussing what type of party they want. Maybe they want a garden party or perhaps a woodland-themed shower. Whatever their preferences, decide on a venue for the baby shower as well as a date and time. 

Here’s a quick checklist of what to include in your baby shower invitations:

  • Name of the parent(s)-to-be
  • Name of the hosts (if the parents aren’t hosting the event)
  • Date, time, and location of the baby shower
  • RSVP date and information
  • Gift information 
  • Party theme and dress code requirements, if applicable

Aside from essential information, you can also make your butterfly baby shower invitations more memorable with your messaging. Choose cute and punny sayings that pair well with the butterfly theme, or opt for a more formal or traditional route. Here are some ideas for weaving the butterfly theme into your baby shower invitation wording:

  • It’s almost time for our caterpillar to evolve into a beautiful butterfly. Join us in celebrating this special moment with a butterfly-themed baby shower. Please wear the colors of your favorite butterfly.
  • Join us in celebrating the upcoming arrival of our new bundle of joy on Sunday, June 16th. It’ll be a day filled with butterfly kisses and sweet wishes.
  • Come celebrate as we spread our wings and broaden our brood with a butterfly-themed baby shower.
  • Our new bundle of joy makes our hearts flutter. Come celebrate this special moment with us at a butterfly-themed baby shower on September 24th at noon in our backyard.
