Welcoming a new baby is always exciting for the parents to be and the family. You can share in the family’s excitement through baby shower wishes which you can include in baby shower cards. Sending your good wishes to the family is a kind way of expressing your emotions that will go a long way. You can be creative in the wishes you write on the baby shower card to make the newborn’s parents proud and have confidence as they look forward in welcoming and bringing up their bundle of joy. For unique messages consider the following tips:
Express your emotions
Welcoming a baby to the world is something to rejoice about which should also reflect on the kind of baby shower wishes you write. In your message, always remember to congratulate the expectant mom and dad. Your message should also include a sense of excitement to assure and give confidence to the new parents. New or first time mothers need a lot of emotional support from family and friends for their wellbeing in bringing up the newborn.
Be specific in your address
When writing a baby shower card, consider addressing the baby, mom, parents or the family of the new born. Even though the angel knows nothing about the surroundings, the people who read your message will get to understand your feelings in welcoming their newest member in the family. It would be a great honor when the baby celebrated gets to come across your message years to come.
Tailor your message
Baby shower wishes can always be directed to more than one bundle of joy. This could be twins, triplets or more. If the gifted mom or mom and dad are expecting more than one baby, it would be ideal to craft a message that includes all the babies. Knowing the baby’s gender may also help you not to mention a baby girl when you meant a baby boy in your message and vice versa. Writing a general message may sound quite ignorant of the fact that there is double or multiple blessings in the celebrating family but it’s good to be sure about it.
Celebrating the birth of a newborn is something joyous that can be expressed in baby shower wishes. You can share your joy by including humor in your messages without being offensive. Understanding the character of the baby’s mom or parents will help you come up with a message that is not provoking the welcome of a baby in the world. For instance, you can joke about how you are eager to meet the newborn or enjoy his or her birthday cake on their first birthday.
Be brief but sweet
Messages on baby shower cards should always be short and sweet. Long messages may be quite boring to read and besides the mother to be may be preoccupied in attending to her pregnancy. Sweet words are comforting and exiting to parents expecting to have baby. Writing three sentences at most is easy to read and the mother to be can read the message over and over again. The card with the baby shower wishes can accompany the baby shower gifts to complete your congratulatory message.
