Being assigned on the decorations duty of your sister or your friend’s baby shower certainly puts you in a position of planning and organizing a party unlike others. If you find yourself struggling to come up with ideas that will set this baby shower apart from any other baby showers that your ladies have attended in the past, you may take cue from these celebrity baby shower tips:
- Aim for personalized invitations. One way of getting the ladies at their best party moods is by making them feel special by gifting them a personalized invitation. Lay off the electronic invites—go for more personal and traditional snail mail invitations using monogrammed cards and envelopes.
- Themed menu. What makes a baby shower stand out is its theme, which also extends to the food you’re going to serve. Make sure that your menu is somehow related to your party theme. If that’s not even possible, then try to sweeten up your guests with tasty sweets that follow the official colour of your party theme like cookies, cakes and sliced fruit.
- Activities. To keep the ball rolling, make sure that your baby shower has enough activities to keep guests mingling with other guests. Creating a scrapbook of childcare tips during the party is one great idea. You may also choose to have everyone personalize baby onesies during the party, just make sure that you have enough materials and onesies to keep everyone busy.
