Writing your Baby Shower Notes

Baby shower notes are inspiring messages that can be placed in your baby shower invitations, on place cards, and your keepsakes and favors.

If you are preparing for your own baby shower then you should consider creating your own personalized message too!

They will not just make your invitations and favors look good, but they will also inspire your guests and your family during your special event.

If you are a bit of a poet, then bank on your exceptional talents to make some creative notes. But if you lack in this department, you can find the following inspiring baby shower notes helpful:

  • “Babies are gifts from God! We share our perfect gift to you”
  • “Just a card to say thank you and a line to tell you too, nothing could have been more welcome than the time I shared with you! Thank you for being a part of my special day,”
  • “A word of encouragement, a chuckle or two. Give the new mom a note just from you. Pick up a diaper and write on the booty… Something to take (name of mom)’s mind off the doody!”.

Other moms and dads would want to take an excerpt or a verse from books such as the Bible. Some great verses to use as baby shower notes are the following:

  • “I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord” from 1 Samuel 1:27-28
  • “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb,” from Psalm 139:13.



Common Label Mistakes

But of course, baby shower labels need to be done the right way. Most mistakes happen by sticking the wrong label on the wrong item.

Make them the right size

Create labels that are the right size for the item that you will be labeling. For instance, if you have decided that small aromatic candles in tin cans with lids will be your keepsake, use a small label.

In fact, use two labels. Place one on top of the tin can and the other one on the front. It might be difficult with a small label, but make sure that the words are easy to read.

Make sure they are readable

The text that you will place on your label should be readable. If you are using a keepsake as an invitation, then you need to make your baby shower labels especially clear and easy to understand.

It would be best to use a standard invitation paper where you can place special details about your event. Clearly place your address, phone number, RSVP and other important information as well.

Baby shower labels do not have to cost anything. They can be made of any kind of paper and fastened with ribbon or wire.

The more personalized your labels are, the more special they will be.
