Nowadays, however, baby showers are also held for adopted babies as well. These ceremonies are, in fact, an announcement of induction of adopted baby into family tree and are held after adoption proceedings are over.
Sometime parents spend a month or two with adopted baby girl and it is only then that they send baby girl shower invitations.
It is through a baby girl shower invitation card that one makes proper baby girl birth announcements. Printed shower invitation cards are available for single baby, twins, triplets, and so on. You may personalize baby girl shower invitations by your own words. Baby girl shower invitations showcase different themes.
Adoption showers, surprise showers, triplet and twin baby showers and even holiday and Christmas baby showers find expression in these invitations. The shower cards are excellent in quality and finish.
Since a shower ceremony lasts for two or more hours, some kinds of food have to be served in parties. Full meals are not usually served at a baby shower. Rather, what are offered are simply finger-foods.
Snacks or dessert foods like chips, pretzels, ice cream, pie and cake are offered to guests. Sometimes it is replaced by a fruit or vegetable tray, which certainly is a healthy alternative and is a preferable option for would-be-mother and to be born baby. There should be coffee and punch available for guests. You may also choose to have soft drinks or other beverages available.
Alcoholic drinks should be avoided as a mark of respect for mother-to-be. The would-be-mother should not indulge into drinking caffeinated drinks like coffee and soft drinks. However, food served in shower parties varies with theme.
