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.
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).
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.”

Our favorite Baby Sprinke Invitation:
“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!”
