5 Tips For Throwing The Best Baby Shower
Welcoming the arrival of a new baby is one of the happiest events of life. But the months leading up to the birth can be just as fun if you do things the right way. Want to throw an awesome baby shower for a close friend or family member? Here are five things you can do to make your get together a smashing success!
- Booming blooms
Ordering fresh flowers online is an excellent way to bring a phenomenal look and subtle symbolic meaning to the day. Filling your hosting area, whether it be your home, somebody else’s place or an outdoor space such as a park, with lush floral arrangements brings brightness to a day already bursting with cheer. And flowers represent new beginnings, which of course is exactly what the birth of a child is!
- Open it up if you want
When many people think of baby showers, they think of afternoon gatherings for ladies. While such gatherings can be tremendously fun in their own right, don’t be afraid to include men and children at your baby shower. See what the mum-to-be prefers. Sometimes having everybody around to share the joy can be the most fun.
- Prepare for presents
Most baby showers end up with the pregnant woman receiving dozens of gifts that she ends up needing to transport home. If you can, have a few big cardboard boxes on hand that will make it easier to transport all the goodies. Also, provide a pad of paper and a pen for the impending mum to keep a list of who gave what (or even delegate this task to another attendee).
- Keep them fed
Just like little babies, adults can get a bit cranky if they don’t have enough food! Make sure this doesn’t happen by having some substantial offerings on hand. You don’t have to cook a seven-course feast, but try to have something more than cheese, crackers and sweets. Some nice small sandwiches or a pot full of soup can go a long way in keeping everybody smiling throughout the day.
- Super seating
Having ample seating and sitting area for guests is vital if you’re going to go the traditional route of having everybody gather to watch the upcoming new mum open each and every gift. This can take hours, so be sure you have enough cushions and seat backs for guests of all shapes, sizes and ages!
