Throwing a baby shower isn’t the easiest of tasks, even if you’re an expert party planner. There are many things to organize and many decisions to make. Who should you invite? Where will the venue be? What decorations will you use?
It’s enough to overwhelm anyone. But, throwing an elegant and stylish baby shower doesn’t have to be stressful. Here are a few handy tips on how to host a baby shower.
Just because you’re the host, it doesn’t mean you have to do everything. When it comes to baby showers, people are often more than happy to help out. Even the mother-to-be may want to get involved. It’s okay to delegate small tasks so you’re free to focus on bigger ones. Remember, you don’t have to make the event about all women; you can invite men and children too.
Just because the mother-to-be is near her due date, it doesn’t necessarily mean she’ll want to sit through the whole party. Planning some creative activities will be a nice change for her and it’s a great way to break the ice and get people laughing. Games like pin the pacifier on the baby or who can change the doll’s diaper in the fastest time are baby shower favorites.
It can be difficult to buy thoughtful gifts without any guidance. Your mother-to-be may want to register somewhere for gifts so people have an idea of what she needs for the baby. Alternatively, you could give a group gift, like an Amazon gift card so the parents can purchase what they want.
Something outside of the box is getting each attendee to fill in a voucher. Each voucher will be redeemable for something when the baby arrives. For instance, a hot meal or an hour of babysitting.
The last thing you want to be doing when you’re throwing a baby shower is lugging platters of sandwiches to and fro. Getting your event catered for you will take the weight off your shoulders and you can make sure you put on an elegant spread. Catering of Paris is an excellent choice. Who can resist delicious french crepes and appetizers with Parisian deserts? The mother-to-be will be in seventh heaven.
A baby shower is an event to remember. It marks the beginning of a life-changing journey for the parents, so it’s great to have something to remember it. A baby shower guest book will remind them of who was there and the good wishes they sent. It’s even great for the babies to read when they become old enough.
The most important thing to consider when you’re thinking about how to host a baby shower is to consider the mother-to-be first and foremost.
What will she enjoy? Should you avoid putting her on the spot? What’s her favorite food?
