Baby Shower Invitations
I'm planning my cousins wife's baby shower. It's my first time to do this and i'm super excited. I was wondering if any of you mama's know where i can buy some cute invitations? Also if any of you have some pointers or neat ideas i would love to hear them. Thanks

I have thrown many baby showers over the last couple of years and have always gotten the printable invitations from Target, they are so cute and easy to do!
Favorite idea for the shower:
- Make a basketful of baby stuff and put it out as a centerpiece, pass out pen and paper to everyone when it is time for games and hide the basket, have them write down everything they remember that was in the basket!

I use Paper Lion in McKinney for everything. They're located off 75 and Louisiana, I believe. I don't know where you're located but they are so worth it. Great prices and so many cute options for any occasion.
The last shower I threw with some friends was a couples "shower." We had plastic cups made from Swoozies which doubled as a favor for people to take. I don't know how you or your cousin are or the type of shower, but since guys were at this past one I threw, we had the cups say Pryor Pregger Kegger with a picture of a stork and the date. (perfect for the guys to drink beer out of at the party lol) They were realllly cute and everyone loved them. It wasn't much of a foo foo shower though, more like a bbq. :) Just a fun idea.
Also, my mother-in-law does cakes. So good and ridiculously good prices. Her website is under construction but it's www.tastefullyyourscakes.com
Best of luck!

announcingit.com and polka dot designs (google it, i'm not sure the exact website) both have very cute invitations.

That is so nice of you to plan your cousin's shower. I create custom invitations, if you are interested please look at my website:
I can do them on cardstock, photo paper, whatever you would like. I can also design them to go with the theme of the baby shower and even include an ultrasound picture.
