Examples of What Should be Included On a Workplace Baby Shower Invitation

You can invite your coworkers via email, bulletin board announcements, and/or memos. All invitations should be e-mailed out a month, one week, and the day before the Baby Shower. For those persons that are invited but not employed at your company, you can send the invitation once, preferably at about one month before the Baby Shower. They are likely to be family members or close friends of the expectant mother and are very unlikely to forget the big event. However, make for sure you give them plenty of time to take off work and prepare for the big event.
