Hosting the Perfect Baby Shower

Baby showers have become exceptionally popular over the past few years. If you have been tasked with hosting a baby shower for your best friend or family member, you may be feeling at a bit of a loss. This is especially the case if you have never been to a baby shower before. But, there is no need to fret, read on to discover how to post the perfect baby shower for your loved one.

Determine your budget – The first thing you need to do is determine your budget. Are you going to have to fund the entire event? This can be a big burden for one person. It is worth talking to the person’s close friends and family members and suggest that everyone chips in. Once you have a good idea of how much you have available to spend, you will find it much easier to plan the baby shower.

Choose a theme – By selecting a specific theme, the whole event will tie together better and you will find it much easier to choose other elements, for example, a cake and decorations. There are many themes you can choose from, for example, you could opt for a popular fairy-tale or a nursery theme. Take a look on the likes of Pinterest for some inspiration. There are plenty of great ideas out there, and there is no harm in copying them!

Baby shower food – The next aspect you to have to plan is the food. Your menu will largely depend on where the shower is taking place. A buffet can often be the safest choice, especially if you are likely to have a few fussy eaters in attendance.  

Think of some fun games – Most people host games during baby showers to keep everyone entertained. You could take bets on the sex of the baby, for example. Or, you could get everyone to give their name suggestions, and if anyone has selected the name that the parents choose, they could win a prize. A lot of people also opt to do a quiz about the mother for all of those in attendance to complete.

Choose a gift – Last but not least, your gift to your friend or family member may be the baby shower in itself. It is unlikely that they will expect anything more from you after all. However, if you are planning on buying a gift for your loved one, here are some baby shower gift ideas to help you out. It may also be a good idea to create a shared document online whereby people can put the gifts they have bought already, ensuring there aren’t any duplicates.

Some of the most common gift ideas during baby showers are blankets, diapers with creative folding, baby bags, and tableware. Try to choose gifts that are made from organic materials, because toxic ingredients such as silicone might be harmful to the baby’s health. For instance, a bamboo dinner set for kids can be a good option, as they are made from organic material and will not cause any health issues in the long run.

If you follow the steps that have been provided above, you should have no trouble hosting the perfect baby shower for your loved one. From organising games to choosing the perfect gift, there is a lot that needs to be taken into account. But it will all be worth it in the end!
