Much like any other parties, it does require some preparation, but, being an informal event, you don’t have to worry too much about all of the details and you can keep things casual while at the same time being creative. The advantage of baby-themed parties is that there are many amazing things you could try and you may make most decorations and foods yourself. With a bit of creativity, you can turn the shower into an unforgettable event, not just a formality, and revel in its memory for years to come.
Decorations are key in creating a theme for the shower and establishing a warm and pleasant atmosphere generally. You don’t necessarily have to produce a theme if you don’t wish to, buy decorations are a must. Until not that long ago, future parents might select decorations based on the infant’s gender, but recently this trend has lost its popularity. If you don’t want your baby shower to be gender specific, or if you’re tired of classic ideas and want something fresh, you should think outside the box. Choose charming decorations that could apply for both little girls and boys and set them carefully around the house. You can get everything from toys and stickers to baby themed clips and plates. Pastel colors are recommended, since they inspire purity, playfulness and innocence.
Desserts are the highlight of any baby shower, but, apart from pleasing guests who have a sweet tooth, desserts can be a sort of decoration if done properly. Instead of the traditional cookies and cupcakes, why not make thematic candies shaped like cute animals? Baking yourself can be quite difficult and the last thing you want in the last month of pregnancy is to spend hours in the kitchen, so ordering them out of a candy shop would be more practical. Also, don’t forget about the cake. It ought to be the most impressive dessert yet, so find an expert cake store to bake you something custom and colourful.
Baby shower favours
Although shower favours aren’t as critical as wedding favours, they add a personal touch to your celebration and help guests remember exactly what made the shower so unique. Contrary to common belief, baby shower favours aren’t expensive at all and you may even do them yourself. For instance, you can fill out a small jar with candy and then wrap some cute pastel colour ribbon around it. As an alternative, you can also supply mini tea sets, miniature stuffed toys or a jar of cookies.
If you happen to throw the shower around a major holiday, such as Christmas, Easter, Halloween or St. Patrick’s Day, you can use that holiday as inspiration for your shower theme. You can ask your guests to wear thematic costumes and choose your decorations accordingly. Regardless the vacation, there are lots of amazing baby shower ideas you may try.
