ABC or Block Baby Shower Invitations

There are many free baby shower ideas out there to create your personal invitations, and the use of velum is becoming more and more popular in these day. You can buy sheets of ABC, 123 or school theme paper and several pieces of velum in your local craft or scrap-booking store. The Playtime Blocks design is very cute. Also try the baby blocks invitation for girls.

Open your computer, type any baby shower invitation wording you like and print it onto the velum. Here is an example: "A - Aren't you happy for "guest of honor"? B - Be here at "give party details." C - Come with a gift. Bring a package of any size of diapers, and your name will be entered in a drawing for a "pamper yourself" gift basket. Celebrate an ABC's Baby Shower for [Mom's Name]"

You can also assign each guest a letter of the alphabet inside the invitation and encourage them to buy gifts that start with that letter. So the mom-to-be won't receive any duplicate gift. But wait!

Before you start printing on your sheets of vellum, don't forget adjust the printer seetings to get it just how you want it(use blank white paper to test). Then print off as many as you need and cut the vellum out in 3" by 5" with the invitatin verse centered in the middle. Then attach the velum on top of the scrapbook paper and fasten it at the top with two brads.

One of the free baby shower ideas is to punch two holes 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.

Baby Block Baby Shower Decorations

You don't have to be an expert in Shower decorating. Anything has the name started with A-B-C can be the part of your free baby shower ideas, such as these flip a face nesting blocks.

First, use lots of flowers. For example, Alstroemeria for A, Baby's Breath for B, and Carnations for C. Then tie colorful balloons with bunches of flowers for a great centerpiece.

Tips: Pick up balloons that spell the Baby's name, A-B-C, B-A-B-Y and 1-2-3.

Diaper cakes decorated with ABC's and 123's garnishing woule be very loveable. If you're a "hands-on" person and decide to make diaper cake on your own, you can fill the cake with baby necessities that have names started with ABC, like Crib for C and Bassinet for B.

One of the free baby shower ideas is hanging big cutout of alphabets and numbers on the wall. Then scatter and pile alphabet accessories, including wooden alphabet blocks and alphabet magnets artfully in the center of the guest tables or anywhere your guests will be. Also tape place cards to these blocks.

Decorate the room with Baby Alphabet wall decal set. And cut lengths of colorful ribbons, and scatter around and intertwine with the blocks.

To create a more "baby" setting, write out messages on diapers, like "A-B-C B-A-B-Y S-H-O-W-E". Then hang a clothesline up in the house and hang from it apples(a), books(b), cardboard letters(c), diapers(d) and other baby items etc.

If you're having kids at the shower, or your own children are available to help out, have them setup this Airblown Teddy Bear with Blocks color in these animal picture and hang it on the wall for decoration, use as placemats, or have each child color and sign their own picture for Baby.

Here are some great decoration ideas that fit for a Alphabet shower:

Baby Block Baby Shower Foods


Petit Fours - These are always such pretty additions to a Shower. They are perfect for transforming into baby blocks. Not only do they naturally have a block look, but they also can be filled with a variety of cakes and fillings to add a bit of delectability to your dessert buffet. For a baby shower, decorate the petit fours with the letters of either the baby's name or the family's name. This will make them even more wonderful to see and enjoy!

Pizza Blocks - Yummy and fun! When you're looking for food ideas, pizza inspired food tricks are almost always sure to pop up. This one requires that you cut prepackaged pizza dough into perfect squares. Then, cover in sauce and cheese, and use your topping such as pineapples, peppers, sausage, olives, or pepperoni to make the block letter on top of each pizza block. Try regular red sauce versions and even an all-white Alfredo pizza option.


Block shaped pop-overs - Decide whether you will want to go with a sweet popover or a savory potpie option. For sweet popovers, start with pastry sheets or fillo dough that you can cut into perfect squares so that they look like blocks. Then, fill with the sweet filling of your choice, and decorate with letters using icing or jam! For a savory option, you can create a pot pie that's square shaped. Using a basic flour pie crust that is cut into two dessert plate sized squares, you will place a little bit of cream of chicken or mushroom soup, some vegetables, or the meat of your choice on one square, cover over with the other square, fold or pinch the ends closed. Decorate by using a fork to create dotted letters on top of each potpie which will resemble blocks. The holes on top also serve as a vent for the potpie as you bake it!

Alphabet Baby Shower Games and Activities

Let's test how your guests are good at the basics of ABC and 123, :-)

A to Z Baby Name Race

A to Z Baby Name Race - The top game I recommend for this type of Shower. Also here's an excellent selection of printable baby shower games you can buy and print out right away:


Pick a Number - This is one of the free baby shower ideas that always fun and easy. Just put multiple baby items in a jar by the door. When the guests arrive your shower, have them write their name and the number they think is there on a piece of paper. The person guessing closest to the correct number wins the door prize. You can use baby items such as:

  1. Cotton balls
  2. Q-tips
  3. Diaper pins
  4. Pink and blue jelly beans
  5. Plastic miniature baby dolls (found at party stores in the shower section)
  6. Mini-pacifiers (found at party stores in the shower section)
  7. Mini-baby blocks (found at party stores in the shower section)
  8. Bubble gum cigars
  9. Pink and blue mints


Add-On Alphabet Memory Game - Are you looking for free baby shower ideas that almost always lead to laughter? Memory games are your must-be choices and this one is no exception. How could you stop laughing at the guests when they have to stretch their imaginations and try to come up with unique baby items for each letter of the alphabet?

To play, have everyone in a circle. The first person names a baby item or something pertaining to babies and small children that begin with the letter A. The next person says the A-word and then adds a baby item starting with the letter B and so on. If any one mess up, she is out. And the game resumes. The last person remaining or the first person to name the items A through Z without a mistake wins. I'm giving your an example: A is for all night feedings, B is for bib, C is for cradle, D is for diaper, E is for earaches, etc.

ABC-VIP - This is one of the coolest and free baby shower ideas about models, historical figures, actors, and the famous mom-to-be! Breaking off into 2 teams, each team selects a clue-giver to look at the VIP name. When you're ready, each team gets one chance to guess the VIP from a single-word clue - but the clues have to follow the order of the alphabet!

The first team's clue-giver gives a one-word clue beginning with A. If their team doesn't guess it, it goes to the next team and their cluegiver gives a different one-word clue - this time beginning with B. If they don't get it, it·s back to the first team for a clue beginning with C. The winning team is the one that can guess the most VIPs.

And here comes one of the most challenging game ideas...

Baby Babble - Make a list of 15 - 20 words of baby related items. Then scramble up the letters of each word. Make copies of the list for each guest. Give each guest a copy of the list and a pen or pencil. They must unscramble all of the words. Give them 5 - 6 minutes to unscramble the words, or play until someone unscrambles all of the words. The first one to unscramble all of the words or unscramble the most words is the winner!

Here is an example of scrambled words.

Baby Block Baby Shower Gifts

The web is full of free baby shower ideas that you can use to make your next shower an amazing event. But, what about the gifts? Sometimes it's hard to find just the right gift that expresses your true excitement about the baby to come.

A really neat idea that takes gift giving to another level is to give the expectant family something to decorate their nursery. You can either make your own or have small little block ottomans made for the nursery. To make your own you simply take a block shaped firm pillow, and either iron or sew on big block letters to the outside to create the block look. This gift is both creative and fully functional!

Give them 2 or 3 block shaped boxes that can be used for storing toys or books! You can find perfect square shaped boxes at a hobby store. Either paint the boxes yourself or buy them painted, and then decorate to look like blocks. Fill each with books or toys that you want the baby to have. Parents will appreciate these and they will give the baby's nursery or playroom a real toyland feel!



Baby Block Baby Shower Favors

You can send guests off with custom-made bracelets or necklaces made from the same kind of beads they use to make baby identification bracelets in hospitals.

Other baby block favor ideas include personalized block mint tins, fill-able plastic baby blocks with a handful of your favorite sweets wrapped in tulle and set inside the baby block. Or, you can do anything involving the alphabet, like alphabet cookie cutters tied with a pretty ribbon, or even alphabet magnets - where you glue the letters of each guests' initials together.
