Geek and Trendy Baby Shower Fun STEP 2: Geekify Your Invites

Greetings fellow geeks!  This is Geek and Trendy second blog post on how to throw a geek themed baby shower. In this post we will go over how to create a geek-tastic invite.  If you missed our last blog, CLICK HERE to read our Introduction and catch up on STEP 1.

STEP 2:  Create Your Invite

There are numerous choices of online sites to help you design and create your one of a kind baby shower invitation.  For our Geek and Trendy Baby Brunch, Sara decided to use Evite.com.  She was able to create and email online invitation at a minimal cost.  The great thing about creating your invitation online is that there is no fee to design the invitation.  You only have to pay fees based on how many evites you choose to email out. (Wohoo, extra money towards awesome food and decorations!) For those of you who loves keepsakes, for a small fee, you can order a printed version of the invitation.

For  Florence’s baby shower, Sara decided to go for a mad science geek theme so she found a cute atom and flask wallpaper to use as background for the invitation.   For an extra touch of geek chic, she threw in the iconic black rim eye glasses.  Below is our geeky invitation.

Baby Geek Invite

Attached to the invite was a note to guests requesting that they submit (in advance) their baby pictures to the host in preparation for a round of “Guess the Geek” at the party. They also had to submit what kind of geek they considered themselves to be.  For example, a “gamer geek” or “Star Wars geek.”  Read more about this in our coming blog on how to geekify traditional baby shower games.
