Plan the Perfect Baby Shower with the Help of Pink Elephant
Do you or your loved one have a baby on the way? Welcoming a new baby into the world is a wonderful and exciting experience. To celebrate this experience, you want to host a baby shower that will be one to remember. Plan the perfect baby shower with the help of Pink Elephant.
The first thing you need to do when planning a baby shower is select the date and time of the event. Most baby showers take place when the mother is seven months pregnant. However, you can give or take a month depending on the mother’s preferences.
Once you’ve selected a date, you can create the guest list and set a budget. When making the guest list, decide if you want a traditional shower of just women, or you want all genders to be welcomed at your event. Remember that the more people you invite, the more money you will have to spend on things like a larger venue, food, drinks, and party favors.
Now that you know how many people are coming to your event and how much money you’re willing to spend, you’re ready to pick the venue for your baby shower. You can host a baby shower at your house or in your backyard to save some money. However, if this isn’t an option for you, some other great spots include restaurants, churches, hotels, or event halls.
When the date, time, guest list, budget, and venue are finalized, it’s time to send out the invitations. You should send out the invites about six weeks before the shower. This gives guests enough time to reserve the date, RSVP, shop for gifts, and find a babysitter if they have kids of their own. A more formal baby shower should use standard paper invitations, but a more casual shower can use email or text-message invites.
Up next, decor. Decide if you want the baby shower to have a theme. Plan your decor around this theme or opt for simple decor if that’s more the mom-to-be’s taste. If you’re going for a themed party, match the food to the theme to express your creativity. For example, if the theme is Zoo, serve animal crackers as a snack.
Lastly, plan some games and activities for the event. You want to give guests about 15 to 20 minutes to arrive, mingle, and find their spot at a table. Then, you want to get started with some games and activities. Don’t forget to choose some prizes for the games. Also, don’t forget to leave some time for guests to eat.
