  • Mustache Baby Shower Theme: Real Baby Shower

    Mustache baby shower theme using our mustache baby shower themed shower card. At Basic Invite there is nothing we love more than to see how our baby shower invitations are used to help create the perfect baby shower.  So we wanted to show you this real baby shower and hope it will give you some great ideas for your own showers.

    This shower started off with the little man baby shower invitation which is perfect for the mustache baby shower theme, it can be found here.  The little man invitation is great because it can be personalized to fit just about any color color scheme.invite-n-cupcakes

    Mason Jar Drinks The mason jars filled with apple juice is a really cute touch and it is something you can do pretty inexpensively.  The hardest part is finding the lids and the cute paper straws to go in them but we have already done the research for you and you can find the links below for all the decorations used at the shower.

    Paper Straws: Pack of 25 – $4.35 Daisy Cut Lids: 12 Count - $9.18

    Cupcakes Every baby shower should have cupcakes in my humble opinion.  The reason for this is that they are so versatile with dozen of different cupcake wrappers you can find a cute wrapper to perfectly match your theme.

    Cupcake Wrappers - $3.99 to $5.99

    watermelon-decorBaby Carriage I love the décor that was used especially the watermelon baby carriage.  Even though this was used for a boy baby shower the baby carriage is very gender neutral and can easily be used at any baby shower.  Surprisingly the watermelon carriage can be made it about 30 min.

    Here is a step-by-step video how to make the baby carriage.

    Chocolate Mustache Treats What really mak es the whole décor in my opinion are the chocolate mustaches.  I know these can be purchased pre made but I would recommend making them yourself and save a ton.   If you buy them pre made it will cost you around $16 per dozen, so with a little work you will be able to make almost 100 at that price.

    Mustache Molds – $4.34 Lollipop Stick: 100 count – $8.88

     Onesie Clothesline Babies can never have enough onesies as they go through 3-4 different wardrobe changes each day.  So make sure to that in your shower you include a personalized onesie.

    Personalized Onesie - $16.99

    IN MEMORY OF MARVELL "VELL" SMITH

    Yesterday, the life of a valued business partner and friend of Basic Invite was taken in a tragic motorcycle accident.  Marvell's work was an inspiration, his example legendary and his generosity unmatched.  We met Marvell at an awards ceremony last year, where he won the title of "Utah's Best Wedding Photographer", he was quick to offer a helping hand and has referred us many a customer over the past year.  He will be missed.

  • Bridal Shower Checklist and Timeline For The Perfect Shower

    A bridal shower gives the bride one last chance to celebrate her engagement and spend time with family and friends. In the days leading up to the shower, you might feel a little worried about the event, but following a simple checklist will help you ensure that her celebration goes off without a hitch.

    2 Months Before The Shower

    Start planning the shower at least two months ahead of time. Now is the time to ask the bride what type of shower she wants and who she wants invited. Coed showers are incredibly hot right now because it lets the future groom take part in the event. She might prefer having a shower just for girls, and she'll definitely have ideas about the guest list.

    6 Weeks Before the Shower

    Once you have the guest list in hand, you can pick a time and location and send out your bridal shower invitations. Send the invites out at least six weeks in advance to give guests time to plan.

    4 Weeks Before the Shower, Decide on:

    - the menu - the decorations - the theme - the party favors - the activities or games

    Though you might think that you have everything under control, you still need to deal with a few things in the coming weeks. Buy the party favors that you want to hand out, or if the bride prefers, make those favors. You also need to buy the decorations, utensils, plates and any other supplies that you need on the day. Depending on the theme, you might find that you can borrow a few things from other guests, including tables, chairs and a punchbowl. Two weeks before the shower, order any food that you need for the ceremony. If you're planning a low key event, you can talk to other guests about making dishes that they can bring to the celebration.

    The Day Before The Bridal Shower

    The day before the bridal shower is one of the more important days. This is the time when you double check on the food and arrangements. Nothing is worse than discovering that your venue lost your reservation or that the weatherman calls for rain when you planned an outdoor event. Finalize all of your plans before you start wrapping presents. Other things you can do on the day before include:

    - decorate the venue - arrange favor bags - pick and wrap prizes for your games and activities - arrange the tables if you can - wrap the gift you picked for the bride

    The Day Of Bridal Shower

    bridal-shower-gift-bags

    Start by placing the party favors and goodie bags in one large canvas tote, cardboard box or reusable shopping bag. This helps keep those items separate from the gift(s) you bring for the bride and the prizes. Place all of the prizes in a separate bag, and place the gift for the bride in a separate location. The last thing you want to see is someone "winning" the bride's gift because you placed it in the wrong spot.

    If you make food for the shower, arrange for transportation to the venue ahead of time. Don't forget to bring serving utensils for those dishes, and bring a few extra too. You never know when another guest might forget to bring a spoon for her dish. You can also bring any tablecloths or table linens, fresh flowers and other things you couldn't take to the venue the day before.

    Planning a wedding shower should be a fun and exciting event, and by using this checklist, you can relax and enjoy the party without feeling stressed.
