How to plan a fun and memorable baby shower

It may seem intimidating, but with the right planning and the right preparation, planning a baby shower can be a fun process.

Here are some helpful tips on how to plan a fun and memorable baby shower:

Decide date and time

If you’re planning for it to be a surprise, try hosting the party sometime in your guest of honor’s seventh month of pregnancy – the perfect time when pregnancy is safe and she’s still comfortable moving around. Involve the husband in the surprise to make sure the chosen date and time are ideal (and ask about gift ideas too!). Otherwise, ask the expectant mom when she would like to have the baby shower.

Set a budget

You don’t have to bear all the expenses yourself (unless you can and are willing to!). You can ask your close friends to contribute financially. The first step is to create the guest list. You can create the list on your own if it is a surprise baby shower or ask the guest of honor if it is not. Knowing how much to spend and how many people to serve will make your next steps easier.

Decide on the place and theme

Based on your budget, choose a suitable location for your baby shower. Depending on your budget, it could be in a coffee shop, restaurant, or even in the backyard of one of your friends. Regarding the theme and decorations, consider what the future mom likes. It can be as simple as a color theme based on the gender of the baby. Make sure to buy the flowers on the day of the party!

Plan the menu

Don’t plan a complicated menu! Choose comfort food: salads, sandwiches, mini sliders, or even pizza. If you are having the baby shower in a backyard, a barbecue would be nice. But be sure to also ask your guest of honor for her opinion!

Create the program flow

Baby showers are not complicated. They usually consist of fun games related to pregnancy and babies, opening gifts, giving advice to the expectant mom, and generally just friends celebrating a new life. Look for fun games, great music, and other forms of entertainment. Don’t forget the party favors!

Follow these easy steps to plan a fun and memorable baby shower and you are sure to have a lot of fun, especially your guest of honor and your guests!
