The Baby Shower craze is sweeping the globe and fastly becoming a must have occasion before any birth. It’s the perfect way to give the mother-to-be the perfect send off before she takes her first steps into motherhood.
This handy guide will give you all you need to plan a memorable baby shower.
There are so many options when it comes to the venue. Weather permitting, the local park or a friend’s garden is a perfect venue. In poor weather, restaurants or hotels also provide a great setting. Avoiding the home of the mother is advised as it avoids the need for any cleaning, especially by her.
This depends on the size of shower you’re planning. If it’s a low-key, intimate affair, inviting close friends and family is ideal. However, if it’s a large gathering you decide to throw, it may be a good idea to consult the mother-to-be regarding a list of invitations.
Food & Drink
This depends on the style of party. If it’s a girly, classy affair, tea party style food like canapés and dainty sandwiches are perfect. For an outdoors affair a BBQ is a great solution, especially for big parties. Make virgin cocktails or punch for those avoiding alcohol and pink champagne or cocktails for those who fancy a tipple.
A few final tips:
• Buy disposable cameras for every guest, ask them to take pictures throughout the day which can then be made into an album for mum
• Plan well advance so you forget no fine details
• Create goody bags or thank you cards for the guests
