Others may want a display only shower if they want to “go green” and save trees on tons of wrapping paper from fifty or so guests. Usually a card or a tag is included with the invitation so that everyone and the mom-to-be knows who brought which gift.
So, you be ready to throw a display only shower and now it's time to let the guests know in their invitation. Not all the guests may know about this new trend, especially the older guests who have brought a wrapped gift for years. I found this cute poem to add to an invite that may work.
Tradition is changing and Showers are too,
So here's an idea we hoped you could do...
When bringing a gift could you leave off the wrap?
As it's xxxxxx's last days with an empty lap.
An unwrapped present can be just as caring,
and will save her from all the pulling and tearing.
We'll display your kind treasures for all to see,
then relax and honor the Mommy-To-Be!
