Using The Internet To Plan Your Baby Shower

Apr 7, 2008
Having access to online resources is a benefit your mom or aunt probably didn't have when they planned their showers. The internet has great resources for advice, suppliers, and services, allowing you to host an fantastic baby shower.

Three different types of resources are available online to help with your baby shower planning and hosting. There are great advice sites to help you get inspiration, and learn about etiquette for your shower. Online retailers are able to provide you with all the supplies you need including tableware, decorations, invitations, service items, and gifts. Plus, new social media technologies are revolutionizing the way you can "invite" out of town guest to your event, and get them involved.

If you are a novice, and are throwing your first baby shower, you may want to take advantage of the advice available online. You'll find tips and ideas on everything from how to best word your invitations, to who should be on the guest list, to developing a theme.

The online advice sites generally have ideas from professionals, and experienced home entertainers. You can take full advantage of the experience these people have, getting the benefit of their wisdom, while sitting in your bath robe at your PC. Some sites have planning guides and check lists to make the planning process really easy.

When it comes to finding supplies, decorations, and invitations, the internet has hundreds of on-line retailers ready to provide you the perfect items for your event. While you may only find a few items at your local party supply store, some specialty baby shower retailers carry as many as 2,000 items.

Your ability to color coordinate, or theme coordinate a baby shower is much easier online than in the traditional brick and mortar party store. You can use the various vendors' websites to coordinate party supplies, catering items, invitations, and gifts into a fantastic package.

Make sure you allow adequate time for delivery when working with on-line retailers. Select suppliers who have clear shipping policies, so you can be assured your items will arrive on time.

The Internet has helped create a new type of baby shower - the 'virtual' baby shower. People hundreds or thousands of miles away can use these new social network services to participate in a 'web baby shower', without physically being there. These services include real time chat, pictures of what's going on at the shower, and other ways to help the remote people participate.

The internet has helped a lot of novice, and first time hosts throw a baby shower like an experienced pro. Give yourself a little time to research and plan your event, and you'll be able to "shower" your guest of honor with unforgettable memories.
