Invitations are essential to any event. They let guests know all of the important details about where to go, what time, and what to expect.

These 5x7" invitations are customizable (minus the graphics), so you can edit them to fit your party needs.

Balloon Arch Decor
A balloon arch is a fun take on something you see all the time, and it can really amplify your overall decor. You can use it to decorate a table setting, the entry to the party, or both and it will look adorable. They are also in inexpensive way to dress up your events. We love this blue, white, and silver version that also comes with silver starbursts to make it look even more winter inspired. For winter, look for darker colored balloons in hues of blue, green or red for holiday season, or pink and glitter options. Etsy, Instagram, and even local vendors can help you find the exact one you're looking to create.

Custom Glitter Confetti
Confetti is always a cute and easy party decoration to make your theme really stand out, and to add something cute. It's also reasonably priced, so you can get adorable decorations without breaking the bank. You can even place a few pieces in your mail out invitations for guests to receive upon opening. This custom glitter confetti design comes with the option for just silver snowflakes, or silver and colored snowflakes (pink, blue, or lavender), with your custom name of choice. There is also the option to order just the custom name, so you can order those separately if need be. Each order consists of 10 silver glitter name confetti pieces, and 20 snowflakes. It's a great addition to a winter baby shower.

Desserts & Treats
No baby shower is complete without sweet treats for guests to enjoy. Cakes, cookies- who doesn't love something sugary? Cake and cookies are always great choices for any event, and there are plenty of local bakers who can help you create exactly what you're looking for. We love the all-out winter dessert theme that was created here for this baby shower below- snowflakes, and teddy bears, all in white and slight pink colors. It looks almost too good to eat! You don't need to go all out on the desserts like they did - any effort into treats matching the theme will be appreciated. Search local bakeries and see how they can help you create a wintery treat that everyone will love.

No matter the beverage of choice being served at your baby shower, give guests something to add to their drinks to make it their own, and make it a little more adorable. These sparkling snowflake and snowball stir sticks are just too fun to not have. The sticks are made from wood similar to popsicle sticks, with the tops being made from various materials, including glitter and rhinestones to give them added shine. Each order comes with 10 pieces- 5 snowflakes, and 5 snowballs, and at an insanely good price, you can order as many as you'd like to give every guests drink an accessory. Write guests names alongside its side so that everyone can make sure that they've got their respective drinks.

Whether it's your baby shower, you're helping to plan, or even just a guests, you can't forget about the gifts. After all, one of the main objectives is to receive gifts for the newest little bundle of joy. For the winter season, nothing says colder weather quite like red flannel. Gifts like this adorable little baby onesie are just perfect. It features the word 'baby' spelled out in a red watercolor flannel on either a white, or neutral toned cotton jumper.
