Turtle Baby Shower Invitations

by admin on February 3, 2013

As some of the oldest animals on earth, you wouldn’t think of turtles as the ideal mascot for a baby shower. With their sweet little faces, the way they slowly crawl along over anything and everything, and how helpless they are on their backs, turtles and newborns have a lot in common.

As you plan a baby shower, choosing a theme makes your planning a whole lot easier, and an animal theme is a great choice. With a turtle theme, you automatically have your shower’s colors built in – yellow and green, which are neutral colors, so a turtle baby theme works for both boys and girls.

Turtle Symbolism

Turtle baby shower invitations can mean several things for the expectant mother. With the way turtles slowly creep along, they can be an in-joke for a pregnancy that’s seemed to slowly creep along as well. Wearing their shell awkwardly on their back, turtles can also humorously represent a heavily pregnant mommy (provided she finds humor in it as well!). In the wild, turtles can live up to 150 years, and represent a long, healthy life for the baby on the way.


Choosing Invitations

Now that you have chosen the turtle as your shower theme, you’ll have to find invitations. Make sure to choose a stationery retailer who uses top-quality 80lb. linen for their invitations. You’ll also want to find out what the turnaround time is for printing up your turtle baby shower invitations. You should also make sure that the vendor you choose can offer you a wide selection of fonts (typefaces) and font colors.


Turtle-up Your Whole Shower!

Ideally, the company you choose to print your turtle baby shower invitations should be able to provide you with matching or complimentary stationery. In addition to invitations, you’ll want turtle-themed thank you notes (a great gift for the mom-to-be, so she doesn’t have to hunt them down herself), baby shower favors and favor tags, and personalized labels.

With the turtle as your mascot, you can include games like a shell game (put yellow circle stickers onto green plastic cups for makeshift turtle shells) or a turtle version of “pin the tail on the donkey.” With green and yellow (or brown) as your party colors, make a fruit salad of honeydew melon with mango and pineapple. Or serve a lemon lime sparkling fruit punch with citrus slices. Instead of a cake, serve turtle decorated cupcakes or cookies. And your party favors can include bags of green and yellow jellybeans or fruit chews.

Your turtle-themed shower is easy to plan and begins with picking your turtle baby shower invitations. Above all, have fun with the baby shower, both the planning and the hosting. When the host is having a great time, the guests will too!
