Here’s all that you need to know about hosting a Baby Shower

An important part of the pregnancy is the ‘baby shower’. Baby announcements don’t just excite parents. Other family members like the future aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, and friends are also equally eager to invite the newest tiny member of the family.

Some expecting mothers might feel embarrassed or tired by all the attention, but it is a great way to make them feel loved and boost their spirits. One of the most traditional ways in which your loved ones express their delight in your pregnancy is by organizing a baby shower. In honour of the expecting parents, friends and family enjoy sharing time with them and shower gifts, love, and wishes.

What is a baby shower?

A baby shower is a party or a ceremony that honours the delivery or expected birth or the turning of a woman into a mother. Additionally, it’s a way to help friends and family assist the new parents and shower them with gifts and good wishes.

How to organize a baby shower?

Choose a date and time.

Choose a date and time for the party in consultation with the guest of honour. Usually, expectant mothers host their baby showers around seven months into their pregnancy. This way, she is allowed plenty of time to organize gifts after the shower and decide what she needs to buy before the baby arrives.

Choose a place 

You may want to consider the season, the number of guests, and the budget. If you have a large guest list with a larger budget, you may set up the ceremony in a hotel or restaurant. With a small guest list or a small budget list, it is realistic that you put up a baby shower in the backyard of your home. Parks can also be an excellent choice during summer or fall.

Invite your guests

Prepare to send the invitations to your family, friends, and guest list as early as you can or at least a month before the shower. That way, they may schedule time for the shower. Email invitations are fine for a casual shower. However, you may want to consider printed invitations if you’re hosting a more formal shower. 

Set the Scene

Basic flower arrangements, balloons, and a welcome sign can make for beautiful baby shower decorations. However, you may want to focus on a few core details like display items for guests to see when they arrive, a nice buffet table, and a favour displayed well. Please remember that decoration doesn’t necessarily mean spending a lot of money on it.

Baby shower favors

You may thank your guests with a parting gift, and it doesn’t have to be expensive. For example, thanking guests with small bags containing candies, cookies, or other small items is a lovely way to express gratitude. You may also be peculiar with your guest list. For example, you may gift organic baby clothes to your guest who has a baby or is an expecting mother.

Shopping List

The best part of the baby shower is that you get to shop whatever you want, both for yourself and your baby. So right from the goodies to pamper yourself with, such as face masks, scented candles, or even some nice delicacies to cute baby overalls, baby crib, soft toys, etc., to welcome your little bub, a baby shower is all about love and fun.
