Tips for having a great baby shower

For me, it all starts with a list. The minute I know I have to organize an event I whip out a paper/diary and pen to make a list. Right from probable ideas to sure ideas to shopping list to guest list to jotting down the date of the shower – I start jotting down everything. This is one way to make sure I don’t forget anything important. Since it’s a baby shower, maybe you can have a color theme. But let me list it all down in a more orderly fashion so you can take a few tips from here:

Baby arrival favors

1. If you’re organizing the baby shower, you have a lot of work to do. You have to make a list of things to buy like food items, list of games to organize, a general to do list, and the list of invitees so you don’t forget anybody. Do a Google search online if you’re suddenly lost for ideas.

2. Though you’re throwing the baby shower, friends are putting aside their own commitments to attend the occasion. So a nice gesture would be to give out baby arrival favors to all your friends. It can be a personalized lip balm, chocolates, personalized candles or other things.

3. Make sure you’ve decided on the venue. If it’s an outdoor event, you can organize a barbeque or a cookout. Pot luck works for me as I can then pay attention to other details. And make sure you’ve covered the new-mom-to-be’s favorite foods.

1. Take a present for the baby if you’re attending a baby shower. You can even ask the mama-to-be if there’s anything specific she was thinking of buying beforehand for the baby. A personalized blanket, baby towels, a pacifier or other baby things are a good option.

2. In fact, I always take something for the new mom-to-be too. Things like a book on baby care, a favorite magazine subscription or other personalized gifts can go a long way in making the new momma feel pampered and cherished.
