3 Tips For Planning the Perfect Baby Shower

Planning a baby shower can feel as monumental as planning a wedding. After all, you are responsible for the last soiree before the mom-to-be brings new life into the world. Tackle this exciting responsibility by following these few keys steps to create a memorable event.

1. Know the Basics
Start your planning process by determine a few key factors: who, what, when, where and how. Anyone close to the expectant mother can host a baby shower, and it doesn’t need to be a one-person job. Team up with some friends to throw your BFF the shower of her dreams. The shower should be held when the mom-to-be is between 28 and 35 weeks pregnant. You want her energetic and excited for the big event! Finally, determine a locale for the party. There are countless options from churches, restaurants, private home or event spaces.

2. Choose a Theme
Forgo the frilly pink lace or blue elephants for a theme that is really personalized towards the expectant mother. If she loves to read, curate a theme based on her favorite children’s stories and have guests bring literary-themed gifts such as a rocking chair for story time or a personalized ABC book. If your friend is welcoming her second baby and has all the essentials, throw a diaper-themed party to ensure she is well stocked for at least the first few weeks.

3. Have Some Fun
aWhile opening presents, eating and socialization may fill the majority of the baby shower; planning some fun games and activities can make the party more memorable. Tailor these activities to your BFF’s interests. Does she enjoy movement-based games? Or would she rather listen to the quirky advice of experienced mothers? If the party is not a surprise, see if your friend would like to follow the current trend of a gender reveal.
