How To Plan a Fun and Memorable Baby Shower
Planning a baby shower can seem overwhelming, but with the right planning and preparation, it can actually be an enjoyable experience.
Here are some suggestions for throwing a memorable baby shower:
Choose a date and time.
If you want it to be a surprise, schedule the party for your guest of honor’s 7th month of pregnancy, which is the ideal time for the pregnancy to be healthy and she to be able to travel about. Involve your husband in the surprise to ensure that the date and time you’ve selected are perfect (and to get gift ideas!). Otherwise, inquire about the mother-to-preferred be’s date for the baby shower!
Make a financial plan.
You don’t have to cover all of the costs on your own (unless you can and want to! ), and you can enlist the help of your close girlfriends. The initial step is to create a guest list. If it’s a surprise baby shower, you can make the list yourself; if it’s not, you can ask the guest of honor. The next steps will be simpler if you know how much money you have to invest and how many people you’ll be serving.
Choose a location and a theme.
Choose a suitable location for your baby shower based on your budget. It might be at a café, restaurant, or even a friend’s backyard, depending on your budget. Consider the mommy-to-preferences be’s in terms of the theme and decorations. It may be as basic as a color scheme depending on the gender of the infant. Make sure the flowers are purchased on the day of the gathering!
Make a menu.
Make sure your menu isn’t too confusing! Salads, burgers, mini sliders, or even pizza are all good options. A barbecue would be great if the baby shower is held in the backyard. But don’t forget to solicit feedback from your honored guest!
Make a program flow chart.
Baby showers are simple affairs. They typically consist of fun games related to pregnancy and babies, the opening of presents, providing advice to the expectant mother, and friends celebrating new life in general. Look for entertaining sports, music, and other types of entertainment. Remember the party favors!
Follow these easy steps to plan a memorable baby shower, and everyone, particularly your honoree and her guests, will have a great time!
