Planning a baby shower is one event that most friends and family members look forward to once a pregnancy is announced. If you are planning to host a baby shower any time soon, make it fun and enjoyable for the mom-to-be. With fun and exciting ideas ranging from the theme to the games and activities and gifts, there is a lot you can do at a baby shower. Here are some ideas that will make your baby shower a fun and memorable event.
1. Baby's First Library
Instead of brining cards, ask your guests to bring their favorite childhood book. Not only will this personalize your shower, it will also help build baby's first library with your loved ones' favorites.
2. Help Paint The Nursery
Taking the paint theme forward, why not involve your guests in helping the mommy get the nursery ready for the baby? Before you plan this, make sure you have spoken to the would-be mom and see if she is okay to have others help prepare the space meant for her baby. If she's open to it, you can either keep some old tees or aprons handy, or mention the activity in the invite to let guests be prepared.
3. Make A Baby Help List
You are sure to have some mommies in the group who will be able to provide some valuable and real advice to the new mom. Bring together all the practical advice by sharing it in a way that the would-be mother will be able to use. Depending on the number of people who are attending, you can decorate a small pail or a big jar and ask each guest to write their special tip and tricks for surviving through the first year of motherhood.
4. Hire An Expert
No, you don’t have to bring in a party planner or caterer, but an expert would be someone who could give some genuine advice to mommy during her first months of motherhood. If the mom-to-be is a first timer, this can be an especially helpful gift. A lactation expert or baby sleep expert are a few examples to consider.
5. Have A Brunch-Themed Baby Shower
With a brunch-themed baby shower there are so many menu options you can go with, and many are very easy to whip up.
