OH BABY! Nothing says sweet quite like the arrival of a new baby! Celebrate the arrival of your newest addition with the perfect baby shower party. We’ve got baby shower supplies and linens in every colour under the rainbow, so don’t be scared to shy away from the traditional pink or blue!
Here are six of our favorite tips for planning the perfect baby shower:
- Have your baby shower after the little one is born.
This has become a big trend because it allows you to introduce your bundle of joy to your family and friends at the same time. And who doesn’t love being around an adorable newborn baby?
- Incorporate a game or two into your baby shower.
Games are a great ice breaker for your guests and get everyone mixing and mingling. You can either create your own games or purchase them from local shops like our boutique.
- Have finger foods and cupcakes for dessert.
People like to grab and go so that they are still able to walk around and follow the baby around. Cupcakes are also a great idea for dessert as people tend to shy away from cake but won’t hesitate when a delicious cupcake is presented.
- Plan the baby shower for the women in your life.
We’re not saying that the men don’t appreciate the new baby, but it can be overwhelming to be in a room with a large group of ladies who are squealing over the baby and talking tips and tricks. If you do plan on having men attend it’s wise to have a separate space for them with their own activities. Can you say man cave?
- When it’s time to open gifts make sure that you have a person designated to taking notes on who gave what.
This will make it significantly easier when the new mom has to send thank you cards.
- Stick to a theme.
From chic all white to a little lumberjack theme, there is plenty of fabulous themes to choose from for both baby boys and baby girls. Coordinate everything from the games, the food, the linens and more!
