4 Tips To Hosting A Baby Shower

 

It’s a special day, and you want to make it memorable. Hosting a baby shower is exciting, but it can also be overwhelming when it comes to planning the perfect event.

Wondering what you can do to make it a little easier? Continue reading for tips on how to host the ultimate baby shower.

Set The Tone

First, pick a theme and stick with it! This includes color scheme, decorations, gifts, etc. For example, if you go with a beach theme, start with shades of blue, tan, and light pink. Decorate with beach umbrellas in your beverage service or beach-themed centerpieces, etc. The theme sets the tone for the party!

Small Bites - Buffet Style

Baby showers are often hosted mid-day, so something like small appetizers and mini-desserts are the perfect snack. We recommend going buffet style. Keep it simple, and the more the merrier!

Games

A party isn’t complete without fun and games. After opening gifts, serving the food, and spending time with your guests, keep the party going with some games to fit the baby shower theme. Baby Pictionary or creating a baby-themed music playlist are super fun and will keep the laughter and smiles lighting up the room.
