What is a sprinkle invitation?
Sprinkle baby shower invitations help you celebrate moms on their second, third, fourth, or any number of children. You can celebrate moms with a sprinkle instead of a shower to show her how much you care, as well as provide her with items she may need for the new baby.
When should you send baby sprinkle invitations?
Think about it this way: The typical baby shower should take place around your sixth or seventh month, and shower invitations should be sent out about four weeks beforehand. So you're looking at about your five- or six-month mark. Earlier than that, guests might forget.
What is the difference between a shower and a sprinkle?
While a baby shower is usually thrown for a first baby, a baby sprinkle typically celebrates a family's second (or more) child, has fewer guests, presents and overall to-do and doesn't last as long as a baby shower.
