Much like any other parties, it will require some preparation, however, being an informal event, you do not have to worry too much about all of the details and you can keep things casual while at the same time being creative. The advantage of baby-themed parties is that there are many amazing things you can try and you may make most decorations and meals yourself. With a little creativity, you can turn the shower into an unforgettable event, not just a formality, and enjoy its memory for years to come.
Decorations are key in making a theme for the shower and setting a warm and pleasant atmosphere generally. You do not necessarily have to create a theme if you don’t wish to, purchase decorations are a must. Until not that long ago, future parents would select decorations depending on the baby’s gender, but recently this trend has lost its popularity. Choose charming decorations that can apply for both little girls and boys and place them carefully around the home. You can get everything from toys and stickers to baby themed clips and plates. Pastel colours are recommended, because they inspire purity, playfulness and innocence.
Desserts are the highlight of any baby shower, however, aside from pleasing guests that have a sweet tooth, desserts can be a sort of decoration if done properly. Rather than the traditional cookies and cupcakes, why not make thematic sweets shaped like cute animals? In addition, don’t forget about the cake. It should be the most impressive dessert yet, so find a professional cake store to bake you something custom and colourful.
Baby shower favours
Although shower favours aren’t as critical as wedding favours, they add a personal touch to your party and help guests remember exactly what made the shower so special. Contrary to common belief, baby shower favours aren’t expensive at all and you can even do them yourself. For example, you can fill out a small jar with candy and then wrap a few adorable pastel color ribbon around it. Alternatively, you can also supply mini tea sets, mini stuffed toys or a jar of cookies.
You can ask your guests to wear thematic costumes and choose your decorations accordingly. Regardless the holiday, there are lots of amazing baby shower ideas you may try.
Baby shower photography
Individuals who do not like their picture being taken may wonder what the purpose of baby shower photography is if maternity photography and newborn photography exist. It’s simple: the shower is a very different part of pregnancy, the final step, where parents are the most excited. Maternity photography also illustrates pregnancy, but in a different way. The parents are usually alone and photographs consists of portraits. At baby showers, you can take candid photos and capture an enjoyable event together with your friends and family. After many years go by, you’ll undoubtedly love showing your grown up kid how you got ready for the event and how happy you were to welcome them to the family.
No matter how you choose to decorate your home for the shower, planning is very important. Some things should be established one month before the big day, while others can be left until the last minute. Also, regarding the responsibilities for the planning, it depends how well you feel. Women with easy pregnancies like to take charge and organise everything themselves, while others opt to get help from their spouse, friends and family.
