3. Unleash your Creativity

What you can do to your baby invitation is limitless. Don't hold back with the details. Incorporate design elements that you think matches the theme you're going for. For instance, you can use a duck as your determinant. To differentiate the girl duck from the boy duck, you can put a tie on the boy duck and a ribbon for the girl duck. Incorporating these on your invitation will surely excite your guests.

4. Add the Important Details

Put all the important details to your invitation to ensure that everyone will come. This includes the time and date of the event, the location, and the concept of the party. Detail any special request such as what type of clothes should they wear.

5. Proofread and Distribute

Finally, go over each detail and make some necessary changes. Once satisfied, save and print your elegant invitation. Put your printed invitations to an envelope and send it to their address instead of just sending it to them via email or social media. Send this at least one week before the party to build up their excitement. By sending it in advance, you'll also know who exactly can come, which is advantageous on your part.
