You’re Invited to a Catholic Baby Shower- A Baby Shower of Roses!

St. Therese said “After my death, I will let fall a shower of roses”, and St. Therese is very well known for the roses she showers when you ask for her intercession through prayer!

It turns out that my sister-in-law (whose name is Teresa) is due with their first child on October 1- St. Therese’s feast day! I’ve always thought it would be a cute idea to throw a Catholic baby shower, or a Catholic bridal shower with the theme “Shower of Roses” in honor of St. Therese, so now was my chance!

So I’d like to invite you to join me tomorrow, here at Catholic Icing, to see this “Baby Shower of Roses” in all its detail!


Here’s how you can make your own “Shower of Roses Invitations”. (These would work for a baby shower, bridal shower, or a St. Therese party- perhaps something for the Little Flowers Girls’ Club).

Start with some 10×10 scrapbooking paper (something with roses on it) and fold it in fourths.  Then trace a circle on it using a bowl, and cut them out.

Post continues after this brief information about the Catholic Icing Monthly Membership

Perfect for families! Each month you gain access to printable activity pages, crafts, home altar pieces, and more.
Never has living the liturgical year been so easy and affordable!

For each circle, fold it in half, then fold it in half again.

Squeeze the paper in like so…

I cut out the umbrella trim from Velum using
scalloped scissors, and attached with a glue stick.

Cut the umbrella sticks out of cardstock, and glue them on.
Finish by tieing a ribbon around the umbrella stick, and
embellishing the front with words or stickers. I used

mostly baby phrases printed on vellum.

I also included a Printable St. Therese Prayer Card in each
invitation, thanks to Catholic Convert! 🙂

Maybe by the time you’re throwing your Shower of Roses,
the new Mother Teresa Stamps will be out. That would be awesome!
