Baby Sprinkle Invitations

So you’re welcoming a second (or third or fourth!) baby into the family & community. This is a lovely time to honor the parents-to-be as well as the big-sister-to-be or big-brother-to-be! You don’t need to shower them with gifts, but a sprinkle will do. Here is some more information on Baby Sprinkles as well as templates for the perfect Baby Sprinkle Invitation. If you want to get straight to the invitations, check out our Pinterest Baby Sprinkle Invitation board.

Is it OK having a second shower?

Worried that your friends and family will find you greedy and excessive to throw a second baby shower? Yet find it important to underline this important time with an event? The latest thing is to call it a baby sprinkle! Gifts are not necessary, but if guests insist diapers & usable things may be welcome. After all, the parents have much of what they need thanks to their first bundle of love.

Baby sprinkles are typically lower key & more intimate events. Here are 6 tips on creating your baby sprinkle invitation that will make everyone you love excited to celebrate (and NOT resentful).

  1. Decide on your guest list
    Who is it you (or the parents’) want to celebrate with? Perhaps close family and friends? People who are involved in their lives?
  2. Decide on the true intention of your baby sprinkle
    Typically, this is much lower key than a baby shower. What is the atmosphere you’re going for? Simple gathering? Family party? How will you make this event different than your other events?
  3. What kind of gifts are you expecting? Own it.
    Clarity is usually much more happily received than ambiguity. It’s ALL good. There’s no need to feel guilty for asking for help on diapers and such.
  4. Decide on the look & feel of your invitations.
    Which colours do you want to use? Which patterns? Pick a look for the invitation.
  5. Gather the relevant information.
    Answer the following questions: In honor of whom? Date & Time? Address? Hosts? How to RSVP?
  6. Craft your wording for the more delicate issue of gift expectations.
    You can simply leave it out all together, assuming your guests know what a “sprinkle” is. If you desire no gifts, try something like: “Your presence is our present. Please no gifts.” Of course all of this would be included in your Baby Sprinkle Invitation

Baby Sprinkle Invitation Templates

To explain what’s expected at the sprinkle, here are some beautifully worded templates to use:

“Pins, Diapers, Bottles Galore, (Mom name) and (Dad name) are having one more! Big brother/sister (Name) has plenty to share, So this is only a “sprinkle” to show that we care. A sprinkle of gifts, or advice to share, and the laughter of friends will sprinkle the air. Please join us to celebrate before baby is due! We still do not know if it will be pink or blue.”

“Pins, Diapers, Bottles Galore (mom) and (dad) are having one more. If a gift you wish to bring, “Please remember this one thing, As this is Baby Number Two, A simple thing we ask of you. Most they have, but a few they need, Smaller things like nappies, and bottles to feed, Diapers, bibs, lotion and shampoo, or something adorable in baby blue!”
