If you're in charge of throwing a baby shower, it's essential to stay
well organized and to develop a planning checklist to keep everything
perfect. When the date of the party arrives, the last thing you want to
do is run around like a crazy woman and not participate in the
festivities. First tip to a perfect shower is to draft a version of
your baby shower checklist. Include all you need to accomplish, buy
supplies, set up tables, decorations and food. Then, categorize all the
to-dos and assign them to individual helpers if you can.
Ask close companions of the new mother for shower ideas. They may
remember more about what the mom prefers, her favorite colors, and any
activities that she'll enjoy engaging in at the event.
Remember the following items when planning a baby shower:
- * Settle on a theme and then
choose a Diaper Cake centerpiece and matching party favors for your
guest and mom-to-be enjoyment.
- * Decide on refreshment a few
months ahead of time, and order through a local caterer for easy
preparation and set-up.
- * Hand out cutesy favors like
a silver keepsake frame to all the invitee.
- * Stand up a gift table for
all the guests to set their presents on.
- * Present the mom-to-be with a
notepad to take note of all her gifts so she can send
thank-you notes to all the guests either through email or
- * Don't be hesitant to ask
more experienced part throwers for their baby shower advice. It's a
tough task to pull off and any help you can receive is worth it!
To create a memorable new baby shower part, consider giving cute items
of baby clothing—socks, hats, onesies, shoes, and little
items like bibs and rattles and secure them to a clothes line with
clothespins. Doodlebuckets has great options for Diaper Cake
centerpieces and guest party favors that will sure to delight.
Listen as your guests marvel at about how quaint and dainty everything
is and wait for the look on the mom-to-be’s face as she sees
all of these gifts for her new born!
