Planning a baby shower in early January is a perfect time to take advantage of sales of New Year’s decorations. When planning a baby shower with a New Year’s theme use a black, white, gold and silver color scheme. For baby shower decorations use little plastic babies in diapers, clocks, streamers, confetti, poppers, balloons and mother or father time decorations. Other baby shower decorations such as plastic Champaign glasses, plates, and other place settings may be less expensive after the actual holiday. Construct paper diapers as baby shower invitations, and for a keepsake activity have each guest design a page to be included in a baby book.

Baby shower invitations are the preview to your baby shower theme. Baby shower invitations should be designed and sent out 3 to 4 weeks before the actual event. Here are some baby shower invitation ideas for making invitations for either gender.
Baby Shower Invitations
Buy some cardstock in a boy or girl colors such as blue, green, pink or lilac. Buy some plain white paper as well as this will line the inside of the invitation. Cut the cardstock into an 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” sheet. The white paper will go over the cardstock making the cardstock act as a border, so make sure to cut the white paper smaller than the cardstock. Paste the two sheets of paper together.
Now it is time to pick a design. With a boy you can choose from animals to a sports theme. Go to the local crafts store and look for fun stickers. With a girl look for stickers such as lollipops, soft cuddly animals or baby doll strollers. Close the invitation and punch holes using a hole puncher. Space the holes evenly. Now take a ribbon and lace it through the holes. These homemade baby shower invitations can be saved as keepsake items for your child.

When sending out the baby shower invitations, tell the guests that they are going to have the opportunity to purchase a lotto ticket. However, they will not use money to purchase the lotto ticket. They will supply baby shower gifts such as a small package of diapers, diaper pins, wipes, etc.
Baby Shower Games
When the guests arrive you can begin the baby shower games with this game idea. Have a large calendar hanging for the month of the baby�s anticipated birth. Have a line going through each day to represent am or pm. The expected due date should be highlighted. Have the guests who purchase lotto tickets choose either am or pm on the day that they feel the baby will be born. There can only be two people per day who can guess any one particular day. Have them write their names on the calendar so the winner can be determined after the arrival of the baby.
Of course they will not know the winner until after the shower. The fun part is how the guests will pick the day that they think the blessed event will take place.

Baby Shower Invitations
Purchase some baby bottles at the local discount store, clear bottles are the best to use for this project. The clear bottle will resemble the �message in the bottle� better than the colored bottles.
Use confetti to line the bottom of the bottle to give it the festive look. On your own computer you can create the invitation. The possibilities are endless as to what kind of design you would want to choose from. One suggestion is to use scrapbook paper with a design for babies. This will give a nice background to the information about the shower. Roll the invite and place it in the bottle. The top of the bottle should secure the paper inside or you can use some hot glue to be sure that the top stays secure.
Another cute idea is to take an ultrasound picture, scan and copy the pictures and write the information on the back. Put it in an envelope and send it along.
