Baby Shower Date and Time
It is known that most baby showers are held when the mom-to-be is about seven months pregnant, she is still comfortable and safe into her pregnancy by then. It is important to consult with the expectant mom to come up with a date and the time will depend on the location.
Guest List and Budget, Do Not Forget Budget
The idea is that the guest of honor gives you the complete guest list so you can invite people she really cares to share this beautiful moment with. Once you have the guest list, it is time to come up with a budget and start planning a venue and thinking about food.
Baby Shower Venue
When choosing a baby shower venue consider the number of guests, budget, and the time of the year. It is a good idea as well to host the shower in your backyard, and it would be more intimate, and won’t have to pay for a venue. Since it is summertime, parks can be a good option as well.
Sending the Invitations
We would recommend sending the invitations six weeks before the shower. Six weeks will give guest enough time to reserve the date, and shop for gifts. Also, if you are hosting a casual shower, an email invitation will be just fine. But, if it is a more formal one, then definitely go with a paper invite.
Menu and Décor
The menu needs to meshes with the expectant mom’s tastes, it is important she approves everything –those pregnant cravings are real. Consider having miniature portions to make it easier for guests. The décor and themes will probably depend on the gender of the baby, try to decide these details along with the guest of honor.
Activities, We Need Games
There is no baby shower without games, eating, gift opening, and of course, drinking. It is essential to organize these activities is a very fun and creative way to ensure the success of the shower.
