Lots of effort goes into organising a baby shower, and usually, it is organised by close friends of the mom. Let’s be honest, with so many things other more important things on their minds, we doubt that soon-to-be moms would have the time and energy to throw a huge party. If you feel like you’re up for it, this step-by-step guide is here to help.
Our advice is to not throw a baby shower too early on. Things can go wrong during a pregnancy and you want to make sure that everything’s going smoothly before making the decision. Also, find a date that’s convenient for the people you want to invite. You can also throw a baby shower after the baby is born! Just make sure that the date doesn’t clash with any important events for the mom-to-be’s family.
Before you make any decision, consult mom-to-be. Ideally, hold it at an event space where you don’t have to worry about cleaning up. However, if mom-to-be prefers convenience and wants it to be held at her house, make sure that there are people there to help clean up after it ends. You don’t want to tire her out.
Not sure how to start planning? First, choose a theme. It can help you piece everything together. Not sure what cake to get? Choose one that suits the theme. Not sure what kind of deco to go for? Refer to the theme.
Other than that, you can play games. Make sure it’s not something laborious because mom-to-be won’t have the strength to do it. Maybe do a small-scale lucky draw and prepare goodie bags. Oh yeah, food. And lots of it.
Again, consult mom-to-be before making the shots. Most of the time, mom-to-be would want close friends to be invited, and we don’t think this needs mentioning, but family, of course.
