Our Top Tips For Throwing a Baby Shower

The birth of a baby is such a special occasion and one that should be celebrated in style. Baby showers can be used to celebrate the expected baby, or the birth of the baby, with a particular focus on making ‘Mum’ feel special. It’s a great way to show support and offer gifts. We have some great tips for making sure your baby shower goes off without a hitch, including considerations for where to have a baby shower:

1. Choose a date and time

First things first; choose a date and time. Settling on this allows you to move forward with plans and preparations for the special occasion. Make sure it is a suitable date and time for Mum, as she is, of course, the guest of honour.

2. Arrange a guest list

Consider the guest list early in the planning stages, so that you have a rough idea of how many people will be attending. Make sure to include friends, family and colleagues so that everybody has the chance to express their congratulations. Consider how you will communicate the event once all the details are finalised. Many people go for invitation cards, confirming the date, time and venue.

3. Choose a venue

As mentioned above, you will need all details in place before you can send out invites. With a time, date and rough idea of numbers, you can start to look into and compare venue options. You will need somewhere with plenty of space and adequate facilities, that is easy to get to – ideally with plenty of parking.

4. Plan decorations

If Baby has already been born, or you know the gender, you can decorate the space in pinks or blues. For unborn babies whose gender remains a secret, choose natural colours that create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

5. Consider catering

Decide whether or not you’re going to cater for the baby shower. A buffet or selection of nibbles is a really easy dining option for a relaxed atmosphere. Your choice of venue may offer catering, to save you the hassle of doing it yourself.
