How To Organise A Baby Shower: Organising a baby shower can be a big task and it can be difficult to know where to start! Particularly if you have never organised one before. Here we have provided some top tips to help you with organising a baby shower, whether it’s for you or for your friends.
1. Decide on a date and time
The first step in organising a baby shower is to determine when and where it will take place. It’s important to give guests plenty of notice so they can mark the date in their diaries, particularly if the baby shower is during term-time.
2. Send invitations
Once you have set a date and time, it’s time to send out invitations! There are many different ways to invite guests to a baby shower, but we recommend sending out either paper or electronic invitations. If you’re going to send out paper invitations, make sure you have enough time to have them printed and delivered. If you’re going to send out electronic invitations, be sure to include all the relevant information, such as the date, time and location of the baby shower.
Once you have sent out invitations, it’s time to start decorating! There are many different ways to decorate for a baby shower, but we recommend using baby-themed decorations. You can find these at most party stores or online. If you’re feeling creative, you could also make your own decorations.
4. Plan the food and drinks
Another important task when organising a baby shower is to plan the food and drinks. This can be tricky if you’re not sure what people will want to eat or drink. We recommend choosing a mix of sweet and savoury snacks, as well as both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
5. Plan the games and activities
One of the best parts of a baby shower is the games and activities! We recommend choosing a range of games that will suit all guests. Some popular baby shower games include baby name bingo, baby food tasting, and guess the baby’s weight.
6. Create a baby shower present list
If you’re organising a baby shower for your friends, it can be helpful to create a baby shower present list. This will allow guests to know what type of presents to buy for the baby. You can find templates for baby shower present lists online or in party stores.
7. Send out thank you cards
Once the baby shower has finished, it’s important to send out thank you cards to all of the guests. This is a nice way to show your appreciation for their attendance. You can find baby shower thank you card templates online or in party stores.
We hope these tips have helped and that your baby shower goes smoothly! Organising a baby shower can be a daunting task, but with these handy tips, you’ll be ready to go
