When we organise a baby shower there are some things we should definitely do and take care of. Read this post, let us know what other tips you suggest and of course share it.
The arrival of that special new member of the family is approaching and we want to celebrate it. Therefore, we throw a baby shower party. You decide between something small and simple (with your close family and friends), or big and fancy.
Doing everything by yourself can save you some money and helping the bounding with your sister or mother, involving family in law is a great idea too. I am sure they will be happy to help you out. If you go for that option check “baby shower box“, which contains most of the things you need when organizing a baby shower at home. On the other hand, if you have decided to throw a big party, you will not regret it, this celebration is as special as your wedding was. However, some extra help would be needed contact NIAparty and make it unique. (Belly art, balloon decoration, games, etc).
1- Add important details in your invitations. For instance, specify if it is a “only women” party and if you are planning activities for kids. In that way your guests know if they can bring their partners or children.
2- Have vegetarian/vegan/gluten free snacks available. Even if you know all your guests there might be someone who recently moved to a new diet. That is why it is better to be ready. Check my post about healthy snacks to get some inspiration about food for your party
3- Music. Have your favourite playlist ready. I recommend having background music to give a more vivid ambiance. Check the Spotify playlist “niaparty–baby shower”, it has relaxed as well as energetic songs using the word baby.
4- Infusions of water are a super option for your baby shower. Since you are not drinking alcohol, and maybe some of your guests either, including infusion water is a great idea.
5- Decoration. When decorating your baby shower, try to use neutral colours if you have not shared the gender of the new member of the family yet. Another option is to combinethis celebration with a “Gender revelation activity”, in that case I recommend using baby blue and baby pink for the decoration.
To summarize, planning a baby shower is the sweetest thing before the arrival of the little one. Anyway, it can be a hectic activity. Therefore, asking others for help is a great decision, plus is a super bonding plan. Besides the 5 tips above check tendencies about colours and games you can have during your celebration, like the baby shower box. Remember, this is all about you and the miracle growing inside you.
