|BABY SHOWER INVITES THAT ARE TRENDY AND CHIC|
- SET THE DATE: This is a time to celebrate a new life and share parenting advice. Get together some good ideas for invites and decor as well as suggestions for gifts that the new mom will need.
- PICK A HOST: Anyone can host a baby shower nowadays- etiquette has definitely relaxed in that regard. Showers today can even be co-ed- anyone can join in the celebration!
- GET THE WORD OUT: Written invitations are still your best bet in memorializing this wonderful occasion. Send them out three weeks in advance to the closest friends and family of the mom to be.
- PICK A THEME: You can certainly elect to simply go with bright decor or opt for a theme for the festivities. Keep decorations to a minimum, though~ you want the guests at the baby shower rightfully focused on the belly of the mom-to-be!
- CHOOSE A MENU: Once you decide the venue~ perhaps it will be easier to meet at a local restaurant or tea room~ if not, elect for easy prep foods which can be eaten at room temperature so you are not running around monitoring temps during the event. There's no shame in potluck either!
BABY SHOWER THEME IDEAS
Should your baby shower have a theme? It's really up to you. You may find creating a theme too much work or not your style, but having one can make the party seem more organized and streamline preparations.There are so many themes to choose from when planning your shower!
If you know that your shower is going to feature baby bottles, for example, you can look for bottle-shaped invitations and bottles to use for beverages or to fill with candy for game prizes. Even if the theme is as simple as a color scheme (for instance, blue and white if the parents already know it's a boy), it's a unifying element that can simplify your job.
Here are some theme recommendations from experienced baby shower planners and guests: here are some to get the creative juices flowing: (SIMPLY CLICK ON THE TEXT TO BE TAKEN TO THE DESIGN CATEGORIES!)
