Ensure a Successful Baby Shower With New Baby Shower Trends From Custom Creations by Leslie

Baby Shower Invitation Company, Custom Creations by Leslie, Provides New Baby Shower Trends

MERRICK, NY--(Marketwire - January 15, 2008) - Having a baby is one of the most joyous occasions in life, and there are many different ways to celebrate the event. Baby shower invitations experts, Custom Creations by Leslie, have fun baby shower tips to ensure the perfect baby shower.

"One of the most frequently asked questions regarding baby showers is timing," said Leslie Ciriaco of Custom Creations by Leslie. "If you have the shower too close to the actual time of delivery, the mommy-to-be might not enjoy it fully. However, holding it too early in the pregnancy won't have the full impact. The shower should be held about a month or two before the expected arrival of the baby, with baby shower invitations sent out six to eight weeks prior to the event."

There are many different fun themes for baby showers not limited to the sex of the baby. Some ideas for baby shower themes include:

--  A couples baby shower
--  Surprise baby showers
--  Second baby showers (They're not just for the first born anymore)
--  Post-birth baby showers

A new recent trend for baby showers is holding raffles. Attendees must bring one package of baby diapers for each entry into the raffle, and the winner gets a high-quality item such as a camera or an MP3 player. The mommy-to-be gets to keep all of the diapers, and often doesn't have to buy diapers for months after the baby is born. Be sure to specify what will be raffled off on baby shower invitations to ensure lots of entries. In addition, list the time, date, RSVP information and where the mommy-to-be is registered on baby shower invitations as well.
