Everyone gets excited when the baby is on the way. Planning a baby shower event is fun. Organizing this event needs some creativity and a theme. The theme depends on the sex of the baby, or if you do not know the gender, the theme should be neutral. The most important thing is to make the event to be the most unforgettable experience ever. The following are tips to help you plan for a baby shower.
Select a date and time
Plan ahead of time. Most baby showers are held a month to two months before the baby arrives. You should choose the date when most people are available. The shower is done earlier to give the mother time to organize the gifts they receive before the baby comes.
Choose a Venue
Looking for a perfect venue is important. The number of visitors will determine the place you choose. You can hire a nearby restaurant if you have many guests or just use the backyard of your house. Also, you have to consider the budget when hiring a venue for the event, But if you hold the event in your backyard or you house, there is no money you will spend for the venue.
You need to have a budget ahead depending on the number of guests. But you don’t have to spend a lot of money as you need to save because of the expenses that are yet to come when the baby is born. You can eliminate costs for hiring a place to hold the event as you can do it in your backyard.
You should be creative when it comes to the theme. You may decide to use a blue theme for a boy or pink for a baby girl, but there are hundreds of different themes you can select from. Go online and look for printable designs when you have decided on the theme for the shower. Make the event to be memorable.
You need to be more creative when it comes to the gifts for the baby. If you are organizing a baby shower for your friend, it is ideal for you to ask her to come up with their wish list. A wish list contains many things the mother wants to receive or the things she has not yet purchased. Send the list to the guests who are going to attend. Each guest should mark what they plan to bring to avoid many people buying the same gift.
