Checklist to plan a memorable baby shower

Checklist to plan a memorable baby shower

Are you planning a baby shower without a party planner? Make a good checklist and let this experience be as stress-free and unforgettable as possible by not overlooking a few important areas below:

1. Choose the place for the baby shower
Which place makes you feel more comfortable? Where will you enjoy the celebration the most? The own house is usually the most common place for this type of meeting, but there are other options, each with its own benefits

  • At home: It is private, comfortable, intimate; ideal for such a personal event. You are free to do whatever you want in the kitchen and everyone knows where the bathroom is!
  • In a restaurant: All you have to do is call ahead and inform the number of guests, and you’ll be ready. Try to satisfy the preferences of everyone in terms of taste when choosing a restaurant, but your favorite dish as the future mother should be the priority.
  • In the office: Everyone is stuck at work, but it’s worth the interruption to find an hour to celebrate a colleague’s new baby. No one will be mad for spending a couple of hours participating in fun baby shower’s games!
  • Other destinations. Hotels, party venues, gardens and craft markets are popular for baby showers

2. The theme of the party
The theme of a party sets the tone for the party. To make it a memorable baby shower party, we suggest you choose an interesting theme and bring it to life with its relevant decorations, color schemes, food items and gifts.  Consistency in bringing the theme across is the key.

Traditionally, baby shower party decorations have elements related to babies, such as storks and bears. In the new millennial, we say drop the storks as they are quite passé and be inspired by the creative themes below.

Creative moms who have party supplies’ shops online created the breathtaking baby shower party themes we have referenced below. We have done so intentionally so that you can easily buy their ready supplies and pull off a professional looking party!

3. The Invitations
Once your theme is set, let’s get down to making invitations. At this point, you should think fundamentally about the amount of available space that you will have in the place you chose to carry out your Baby Shower. Of course, those people closest to you always go first, and you will surely have in mind who those people are that you would not stop inviting for anything in the world.

Some moms prefer to make her baby shower party exclusive for women, but it has been shown that it is even more fun to have mixed parties and to watch the dads suffer with the themed games.

To make the design of the invitations, either on paper or digital (for sending them through email or social networks), you must take into account the theme of the party you have already chosen, so that the colors and drawings of the invitations matches with it and also it works as a souvenir for the guests.

4. The Baby Shower Games
One of the traditions of baby showers are the famous guessing games related to the pregnant and the baby, such as guessing the circumference of your belly, or the taste of different baby paps, or racing to see who dresses baby dolls faster.

If many young children are going to be present, plan activities or games to entertain them. Thus, both children and their parents will enjoy much more of the party. You can simply prepare an area with toys, puzzles, tricycles and balls.

For the rest, it’s all about the aspects of an ordinary party, such as providing snacks, drinks and music. Let it flow, and have fun with your friends and your baby!
