Of all the emotional and fun-filled celebrations possible, a baby shower is certainly near the top of the proverbial tree.
Whether you are planning a complete surprise or you are organizing the baby shower on behalf of your pregnant friend with her input and ideas, continue reading for a comprehensive guide to planning and executing a fabulous and truly memorable baby shower.
Date & Location
After you have secured a date, or at least several options of dates, from the mommy-to-be, it is important to invite guests as soon as possible in order to give them adequate time to make arrangements to ensure that they can attend.
Similarly, it is important to select a location that is centrally located to not only the imminent new mother, but also the majority of the guests. The more accessible the location and the sooner you invite guests, the more successful the baby shower will be. Though keep in mind that the more pregnant the main lady is the harder it will be to travel.
There is no more delightful celebration to plan for than a baby shower for a loved one and a large part of this is the freedom and the fun in planning the décor for the special day.
Unlike other popular celebrations (such as weddings, for example), baby showers (especially if you are of that age) are more than an annual occurrence. Instead of contributing to the unsustainability of plastic and un eco-friendly degradation of the environment, invest in some reusable decorations that can be enjoyed by other friends and family members at the next baby shower on the calendar.
Food & Drink
Obviously, the prospective new mommy will not be a large participant of the alcoholic frivolities during the shower. However, this certainly does in no way mean that you and the rest of the baby shower guests must remain tee-total and hiring the professional services of Event Bartenders will ensure all drinks, alcoholic and soft, will be supplied throughout the entire duration of the celebration.
The world is quite literally your proverbial oyster when it comes to deciding on the theme of the shower.
Popular ideas such as an animal or safari themed shower are a brilliant idea and have the added advantage of being entirely gender neutral, which is especially good if your friend is waiting to find out the baby’s gender at birth. Other theme ideas could be a nautical one, a beach party, a Hawaiian celebration or even, as admittedly as the baby isn’t present in the world yet they won’t know, you could choose a more adult theme, or one based on your friend’s favorite movie franchise.
Baby Shower Favors
Along with the decor for the baby shower, the shower favors you bestow on your best friend’s loved ones should tie in seamlessly with the theme you have chosen.
You could decide to order personalized coasters, bag charms or wine glasses with the date and event engraved, or moreover choose a party bag of sweets and other smaller trinkets.
