Star Baby Shower Invitations

There are so many possibilities for star-themed baby shower invitations. With your creativity and these helpful free baby shower ideas, your invitations will turn out PERFECT!

Here are some Twinkle Little Star Invitations with Blue Envelopes. Also, here are Pink and Gold Little Star Baby Shower Invitations and Blue and Gold Star Boy Baby Shower Invites...

One of the most popular styles of baby shower invitations these days is the use of vellum. Vellum is a thin, semi-opaque, semi-clear, milky colored paper.

How is vellum used? First, go to a scrapbook or craft store and buy some sheets of star-themed paper (there are all types and styles of star printed paper). You can get at least 2 invitations from one 8 ½ by 11 inch sheet (depending on how big or small you make the invitations). A 4” by 6” invitations is a recommended size. Also, at the store, buy the same amount of sheets of vellum. Also buy some ribbon or star shaped brads. You can use either the ribbon or brads to fasten the vellum to the paper.

Now for the fun part! On the computer, type up the information you want on the invitations. You could write something like this:

Starlight, Star Bright,
Sarah’s sweet little baby
is not yet in sight.
But we wish you may,
and we wish you might
Come celebrate her baby shower
for a fun-filled night!

When ____________________
Sarah Jones and her little one are
registered at Babies-R-Us.

Or something like that.

Next, print your wording onto your vellum. You may have to adjust and play around with the printer settings to get it to print two invitations on one page. So before you start printing on your sheets of vellum, use blank white paper first until you get it just how you want it. Then, print off as many as you are going to need. Then, cut the vellum down to about 3” by 5” size with the wording centered in the middle.

Next, cut your star themed paper to 4” by 6” size. Then place the vellum on top of the star-themed paper and fasten it at the top with two star shaped brads, equally spaced in the center. Or punch two holes, equally spaced (about 1-2 inches apart) in the vellum and the paper; then loop come ribbon through both the paper and the vellum.

Finish it by tying the ribbon in a cute bow on top.

You are ready to send them off!

If you don’t want to use vellum, you could follow the instructions above, but instead of printing the wording onto vellum, just print the wording on a light-colored star patterned paper. Cut to size and you are done!

Sprinkle the gift table, the serving area and/or the game table with star shaped confetti.

For a truly star struck style, you could get dark blue or black crepe paper or gossamer and cover on of the walls in your party room. Then tape or pin stars of all shapes and sizes on the entire wall. Have silver stars, white stars, light pink stars (if a girl), light blue stars (if a boy)

You could paint several wooden stars (found at your local craft store) and hang them from your ceiling or walls. Paint them silver or white, or cover them with aluminum foil.

For your food area, you can have a star patterned table cloth.

Star themed plates, napkins, and cups are also a fun "touch" that you add to your baby shower decorations.
