“Baby Shower Revealed” will accompany you through the process of planning a successful and enjoyable baby shower for a dear friend or sister.
When planning for a baby shower, make and use a checklist to assist you with every step of the planning process. The checklist should remind you when to mail out invitations, when to order the food and the cake, and when to buy your decorations. More significantly, your checklist will keep an organized record and will make certain that you don’t miss out on any essential details.
Creating a guest list would be the first step to hosting and planning an effective baby shower. A guest list is a means for you to know roughly how many will most likely attend the party; this is an important factor in order that you can determine your budget.
Normally the person that is hosting the shower should pay for the cost. The style and size of the party will determine your budget. It is wise that you take into account the cost of decoration, games and prices also.
With a small group, your house or your friend’s house can be good choice. The place and the food are one’s that usually will consume a lot of your budget so if you can have the baby shower in your home, you can save a substantial fraction of your budget which can be allocated to food, games, prices and decorations.
With a large guest group, you might want to look for a location big enough to accommodate the group, such as a restaurant.
You can begin organizing your baby shower at least six weeks before the date of the shower. In setting up the guest list, coordinate with the mom to be to know who she wants to invite to her shower.
However, if it’s a surprise party, you can coordinate with the expectant mom’s relative or friend to help you make the list, making certain that you have everyone’s phone number, address and email address as well.
Choose a theme for the shower. It will add more zest to the shower that you are hosting as well as determine what decorations to use and what food to serve. It can be as plain as blue or pink colors, or as fancy as Winnie the Pooh motifs or even sort of a barn animals party.
Ask the mom to be if she has certain ideas in mind; take into consideration her style and the theme that she prefers.
When mom to be has registered for gifts, include such data in the invitation by way of a separate piece of decorative paper. If not, you can inform the guests about the gift registry on such time they confirm their presence at the shower.
Decorate your garden (when hosting it in your home) with lots of balloons including your front door with a customized banner to welcome the expectant mom and your guests.
You can have the mom to be picked up by a driver so she feels really pampered and important.
A relative can be assigned as the party’s photographer, to take snapshots of the happenings in the party.
Finally, give the expectant mom a keepsake from her shower party, such as framing her shower invitation signed by all the guests.
