Baby showers are one of the most fun ways to prepare for the arrival of a new baby. It gives the expectant parents a chance to see their friends and family as well as unwind and have some fun.
Since baby showers have become more popular, the bar has been consistently raised for what needs to be done for a baby shower to be ‘fun’.
From celebrities to social media influencers, it seems like everyone is trying to outdo the previous person for the most exciting baby shower.
Here are a few ways to throw the best baby shower:
Pick a cool theme: While the theme will obviously be about babies, it is possible to pick a sub-theme to make the party more interesting.
For example, you could choose a princess baby theme if the child being born is a girl or a heavenly baby theme or even a baby bump theme.
If you are tying your gender reveal into the baby shower, be sure to make your theme reflect that in its decoration, games, and foods. This will keep all your guests guessing and ad to the excitement of the big day.
Choose interesting games: Games are always a good way to lighten the mood at a party and baby showers are not different.
There are many baby-themed games that are commonly played at baby showers such as diaper dash, pin the bib on the baby and so on. There are also games that have a more sentimental feel such as ‘guess the baby’ that has people’s baby pictures projected to a screen for guests to guess who the person is.
Choose whatever games appeal to you and that you feel your guests will enjoy.
The items needed for most games can be bought online from a variety of sites. Alternatively, you can decide to make them yourself.
Decorations: Decorations are the best way to carry along the theme of a baby shower.
After you have decided on a theme for your baby shower, your next move should be buying the necessary decorations which could include balloons, party centrepieces, tablecloths and so on.
Fortunately, there are sites such as Chaircoverdepot that sell all these and more. After your baby shower decorations have been purchased, the issues of actually decorating come up. Whether you choose to decorate yourself or hire someone, the use of the decorations should stay true to the theme of the party.
Snacks: No party is complete without amazing foods and drinks and baby showers give the chance to celebrate with unconventional or baby themed foods.
Fortunately, there are many ways to go about this such as milkshakes served in baby bottles, cakes that tease a gender reveal with their colours and other baby-themed foods and drinks that are sure to thrill guests.
A baby shower can be one of the most exciting parts of waiting for a baby’s arrival and so can be the process of planning one. Follow the above steps to make sure you have the best baby shower possible.
