As a mother, a sister, a sister-in-law, a cousin or a friend, planning to have a baby shower for your friend and family can be highly overwhelming because you will desire it to be “perfect”. However, putting it together doesn’t have to be difficult or stressful.
By following these 5 Simple Steps, you’ll learn everything that you need to know to plan the perfect baby shower.
1. Choosing a Location for the baby shower
For you to choose a nice location/venue, you have to consider what suits the mom the most? Is she an introvert or an extrovert? Does she like hanging out with friends for lunches?
Selecting a venue plays a big role in ensuring a perfect baby shower. Picking a venue with the intimate vibe, great amenities, and adequate space can make the party you’re planning a memorable one.
2. Choose a Theme for the Baby Shower
Choosing a theme is another vital aspect of planning the perfect baby shower. Before you go on to create invitations and decorations, ensure that you’ve selected an amazing theme for the party. The theme should have the reflection of the personality and preferences of the mom-to-be. It should also center on the new baby. If you don’t know the gender of the baby, you could do a safari theme or bowtie and butterflies’ theme.
3. Making the Invitations
Before you start inviting people, consider your selected theme and the desire of the mom-to-be in terms of words and decoration. The location space, the event time and the person’s relationship with the mom-to-be, will determine the number of people to be invited.
4. Plan the Menu
The refreshments at a baby shower do not have to be elaborate. A simple buffet with fruits, cheeses or other small appetizers can be served. Be sure to ask the mom-to-be about any special dietary needs or food allergies.
5. The Games
Kick off the party with a few ice-breakers. Include games like candy bars in diapers, races with eggs, and games played around trivia. Test the knowledge of your guest on the names of animal babies.
Most times, baby showers often end after some few hours, but its memory will last for a lifetime.
