The Complete Baby Shower Event That Your Guests Will Absolutely Love

Aug 17, 2007
A baby shower can be a wonderful experience for everyone involved. There are several aspects that make up the complete baby shower. When all of these aspects are considered you will be the proud hostess of a fantastic baby shower.

One of the first things to take into consideration is the timing. You can be an organized hostess if you start the planning early. Check with the mom-to-be and set the date well in advance of the party. You might also ask the guest of honor for her ideas of an ideal shower.

After the date has been set you can start thinking about the theme. This is another area where the new mom may have an idea that can help you. Maybe the new parents will be decorating the nursery with a teddy bear theme. The parents-to-be may be sports fans or outdoor enthusiasts and you might want to use one of those ideas as a theme.

When you have chosen your theme you can purchase the invitations or make them if you would rather. If you really want to stay with a certain theme you could buy the decorations, plates, napkins and party favors at the same time. This will serve two purposes; you will have a completely coordinated theme and you will have quite a few of the preparations taken care of well before the day of the shower.

Next you can start thinking about the food that will be served at the baby shower. Will you keep it relatively simple or do you plan a big spread? This is entirely up to you and you may want to take into consideration what you think the guest of honor would enjoy the most. Cookies or muffins and a fruit cup may suffice or you might rather fix an entire five course meal. Maybe you will settle on something in-between.

Make sure you will have room for all the guests you have invited. You can borrow or rent extra chairs if necessary or if you are short on room you could move the baby shower outside, weather permitting. Another option would be to rent a party room or banquet room at a restaurant. If cooking is not your thing you could choose to cater the baby shower or have guests bring part of the food.

Think about baby shower games. Is this something the new mom would enjoy and if not you may want to omit this part of the baby shower. If you do decide on games you may want to provide gifts for the winners.

You will want to take care of as many of the preparations in the days before the shower as you can. Waiting to do everything the day of the event is stressful and often leads to a hostess who looks and feels frazzled.

Plan a complete baby shower that will result in an organized party that is enjoyed not only by the guests but also by the hostess.
