A child’s birth will always be an event worth celebrating for—a baby shower is a celebration for the expected or delivered birth of a child by giving or presenting gifts to the mother during the party. Other cultures host a baby shower to celebrate a woman’s transition into becoming a mother. You may also see invitation samples.
Becoming a mother is never easy—the eight months’ body ache, morning sickness and extra weight, and the labor pains on the ninth month, it is no wonder that a baby shower is something every mothers and families look forward to, and every event needs a well-made baby shower invitation template.
Celebrating a new life about to arrive or for a life that has successfully been born has always been the most meaningful celebration in one’s life. There is a famous saying that goes like this: “A mother giving birth has one of her legs stuck in a grave.” Giving birth is probably that hardest moment a woman has to go through in her life; it tramples over all the working problems and heartbreaks—giving birth is joy, pain, and worry all at the same time.
A baby shower is a celebration not just for the baby but also for the mother, congratulating her and wishing her all the best during the labor. The term baby shower is derived from a related custom called bridal shower that is goes back in the Victorian era where the presents are put inside a parasol which, when opened, would shower the bride-to-be with gifts. Alternatively, the term baby shower possibly denotes a “first showing” of the new baby to the family and friends.
Traditionally, baby showers are given only for the family’s first child, and only women are invited. However, with the intense, hard work for every pregnancy, it has become a norm to throw baby showers for every baby about to and are born. The gifts are given not by obligation nor by request; it is given voluntarily with the guest wishes and hopes for the baby and the mother.
