Rarely is there an event as important as a baby shower – a happy mother, a soon-to-be-born baby, and a whole bunch of friends and relatives giving gifts. While the event itself is exciting, the planning process can be quite stressful. Our goal is to give you five tips for planning a baby shower theme party, so as to alleviate as much stress as possible. Each one can help make the planning process smoother, quicker, and less stressful, giving you a higher chance to enjoy the baby shower.
Our baby shower theme party kits make the planning process even easier!
- Cooking: There is nothing worse than slaving over a hot oven for hours and hours, hoping that you have enough food to feed the baby shower army of attendants. Rather than let yourself fall prey to the extensive amount of cooking preparation, we suggest hiring a caterer. It takes away the need to prepare the food, and they often clean up after the job is done. Purchase Tiny Toes blue dinner plates to make the cleanup process even easier.
- Party Invitations: Send out invitations one or two months before the date of the party. This gives your guests enough time to set the date, clear time for it, then respond with their RSVP. We sell a wide selection of party invitations, so you are bound to find your match.
- Baby Shower Theme Party: Part of the baby shower party planning process is purchasing decorations. Guests should feel a continuous flow of baby shower themed decorations upon entering the party. From decorations with light colors and baby feet to baby shower confetti, everything should scream celebration for the soon-to-be-born baby.
- Parking: Always, always, always plan out the parking situation for your party. There is nothing worse than playing the park-and-move game every time someone leaves the party. Try to maximize the parking space around your house, so your guests can park and leave freely. Nothing kills the party mood like feeling trapped.
- Baby Gender: When you release your party invitations, inform your guests of the baby’s gender, if it is known. Party decorations and gifts are often color-coded by gender, and you do not want people buying the wrong gender of gifts. If the gender is not known, inform people of this fact.
