DIY: Easy Baby Shower Invite and Games for Boys

Playful Life with Kids DIY: Easy Baby Shower Invite and Games for Boys 4

As you may all well know, I love DIY projects. Currently, I am looking into ideas for baby shower invite and games for boys. I remember having lots of baby shower parties with my high school friends. It was always an exciting event for us. Not just because it is a party but more so because we have a new baby in the group.

In our group of friends alone, we already had six baby shower, four of which are for a boy’s baby shower. So, just anticipating that there will be more babies for as soon, I am in the lookout for new and creative ideas for invitations and games.


One of the exciting parts of DIY-ing a baby shower is creating the invitations. This is because, an invitation sets the mood, theme, and the entire party. Likewise, it has all the important details of the party. In addition, the baby shower invite is the first thing the guest would see so it has to be perfect. Looking through the internet I came across Basic Invite which offers perfectly customized stationery for every event. As soon as I saw the site, I immediately went into the baby shower section and discovered their amazing collection of baby shower invites.

Fly Away with Me Baby Shower Invite









Almost unlimited Colors: Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. For me, this option is not seen in other online apps. I love how they also make color palettes that would compliment the chosen color. Consequently, this may be a unique key feature of Basic Invite.

Custom Samples: Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print. In addition, they also previe the paper quality before customers place their final order.

Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes: One of the things that frustrate me in creating invitations is finding the perfect colored envelopes. This is why, Basic Invite is a good choice because customers can choose from over 40 different colors of envelopes. This adds character to the baby shower invite and makes it stand out even before it is opened. All their envelopes are peel and seal so it is securely closed.

Address Capturing Service: Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on different social media platforms to request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account and can be selected during the design process. Plus, it address printing is all FREE!

Foil: Another nice thing I saw in Basic Invite is their foil cards. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all their foil designs.


Wait there’s more…..


Another key ingredient of a baby shower party is games. Although it might be fun to create our own personalized baby shower games, it might be challenging for some. In my experience, we wanted to have different games every time we have baby shower parties. But, can you imagine, the difficulty of thinking of new and creative ways every time there’s a new baby? So, you would know how relieved I was seeing that Basic Invite also has different collections of fun baby shower games that are quick and easy to do. Such an amazing site! Offering not just stationeries or invitations but games that can make your party even more epic!

Looking into their collection of fun baby shower games, here are my favorites:
  1. Baby Drawing Contest: Guests draw their best or funniest picture of the baby on the way.
  2. Name that Tune, Baby! : List as many songs that have the word baby in it.
  3. Letter to Baby: Everyone will be asked to write a note or message to the coming baby!

Basic Invite has a lot of offerings on their page, plus they now offer a 15% off everything this end of the month, by just using their code: 15FF51

More than the invitation and games, which is greatly important is the new life that is celebrated in a baby shower party. Likewise, the coming together of people, families, and friends is already a big reason to celebrate. Celebrations are made even special with such themes and designs.

So on your next baby shower, consider Basic Invite for the perfect baby shower invitation for boys and quick baby shower games. Follow them on their social media accounts: Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter.
