Are you planning a baby shower?
We have a ready made party box that has everything you need to create a stylish gathering. Whether you are planning the party for someone who already knows the babies gender or not, this range of party ware is perfect for adding a touch of elegance to make the mum to be feel super special.
As well as making the party styling super easy for you, we are also helping you out with the planning too. Here is our guide to planning a great baby shower:
Consider the location you will have the party / baby shower in. This will most probably depend on numbers, but having it at home will usually provide a nice relaxing environment for the mum to be. However, if you are catering for large numbers of people, using the services of a restaurant or cafe may help with the stress of providing food and drinks for lots of people. Both places are still great for styling and adding a personal touch to.
Having a theme to your party is always a good idea. Most people choose to base this on the gender of the baby, if this is known. However, it is always nice to do something a little bit different. Our box of mama to be party wear is based on mum. It is to celebrate her as much as the baby and provide a touch of elegance to the party. Other fun themes can include animal themes, the theme of a book or story or even a look back at the babies parents when they were babies themselves.
It is best to keep it simple when it comes to catering for baby shower gatherings and this still counts if you have decided to hold the party at a restaurant or cafe. Something along the lines of afternoon tea is a great touch and doesn't cause too much chaos with ordering and arranging everyone. If you are hosting at home light nibbles are always a good idea and a serve yourself buffet style will help you to relax and enjoy the party too. Remember, you can get some beautiful disposable plates, cups and accessories these days to save on the washing up.
Create the Fun
Games are always a great idea to break the ice and have a laugh. Ask everyone to bring with them a baby photo of themselves, put them into a bowl and then get other people to pick them out and guess who the baby is.
We hope you have great fun at your baby showers. They really are a lovely memorable experience for mum to be.
