Baby Shower Planning Top Tips
With the ever-growing trend of hosting baby showers for expectant mums, although a wonderful way to celebrate the arrival of a little one, can be an over-whelming experience for those who are tasked with the planning and organising. Fear not, all you need is a little creative vision and a few personal touches.
Here are a few top tips in making it a memorable day for the mum-to-be.
#1 Go with what feels right and always take guidance from the mum-to-be on her wishes.
#2 Add a theme or colour scheme which you can introduce as much or little as you like. Beautiful flowers and balloons are a lovely touch and will bring your venue to life.
#2 Send out the invites in good time, your guests will appreciate the notice and it will allow time to gage numbers.
#3 Ensure to organise food and drink. A buffet style approach has its advantages with easy to prepare finger food. Don’t forget the sweet treats and cakes.
#4 Baby shower games are a great way to break the ice if you don’t all know each other. There are many baby shower games out there that you can tailor to your event.
#5 Guests will naturally want to bring along baby gifts. If mum-to-be decides to unwrap gifts in front of the guest, don’t forget to give her a helping hand in writing down who gave what. Your mum-to-be will appreciate the list when she sends out her thank-you’s for all her lovely baby shower gifts.
