Plan an Amazing Baby Shower
Planning a baby shower seems easy on the surface. The problem is, you have to be organized and good at getting the word out to plan a successful baby shower. Before you start the planning process, consider a few important pieces of information.
Get a Checklist
Anything that requires planning needs a checklist. Start by outlining what you need to do and when it needs to be done by. For example, the first thing you need to do is find a location. If you want to rent a spot, you need to get started early, which leads us to the next point…
Start Planning Early
You will be amazed by how timing can become a problem when you’re planning a shower. Get a jumpstart by planning your shower at least 4 months ahead of time. This should give you time to find a location, hire vendors, and invite guests.
Think About Your Guests
Are you considering having alcohol at your baby shower? Will children be allowed? It’s important that you consider what your guests find acceptable and what they might be offended about. You’ll also want to consider any plus ones or children that may be invited. Plan a time of day that reflects their needs.
Tools You Need
A baby shower is a special event for both the mother-to-be and the guests. As cheerful and uplifting event it needs to reflect that type of atmosphere. One way you can do this is by using the right tools for the process.
First, select your décor. What type of theme will the shower be? Baby girl? Baby boy? Jungle or ocean themed? Pick out the theme and then buy décor to fit into that structure. You’ll also need to consider food and drink. Is catering needed? If so, book them well in advance. This prevents you from losing out on a good caterer.
Next, think about invitations. They should reflect the theme you’ve chosen and outline the mood you’re trying to set for the event. You should also consider gift bags for your guests. You can choose from our selection of handmade gift bags and even add a monogram (for the new baby’s name, perhaps) to the bag. It turns into a keepsake for years to come.
Use these tips to plan a baby shower that blows away your guests.
