How to organize a Baby Shower: tips to make it perfect!

The last weeks of pregnancy are the most beautiful period, but also the most delicate. The future mother has many thoughts because she has yet to prepare “the nest” for the baby. That’s why it’s so important to make her feel love and kindness. How? The best way is to organize a Baby Shower with friends. Here are our tips to know who to invite, what to give, and when to organize the party.

When to organize a baby shower

The Baby Shower is the mother and baby’s party and it must be organized before the happy event. This party is widespread in the United States, but it is also increasingly widespread in Europe and Italy.

The name means literally “rain of gifts” and the goal is to cover the mother with objects useful to complete the baby kit. Generally, this party is organized at the end of the eighth month of pregnancy and also serves to give a moment to relax the future mother, in view of childbirth.

Who to invite to the Baby Shower

According to the tradition,  the Baby Shower is organized only for the firstborn, but it is increasingly frequent that the party is repeated for the other babies, too. In the beginning, this party was reserved for female friends of mum-to-be, but today future dads and male friends can participate.

Usually, it is the friends of the future mother who organize the party, thanks to the help of an event planner. But even the mother can contact the professional to organize the event.

Home or special location: where to organize the Baby Shower

After defining the date, the next step is to choose the location for the Baby Shower. The best choice is to organize the party at the parents’ house or, alternatively, at the home of the mother’s friends.

If this is not possible, then book the lounge of a bar, a restaurant, a tea room or a villa. In any case, the idea is to choose an environment that is reserved, so as to ensure the mother also the opportunity to relax.

A themed Baby Shower: make the party unique

To make the event truly unique, choose a special party theme for invitations, cake, games and decorations. The mother and the baby must be the protagonists. You can choose between different themes: princesses, animals of the forest, circus, and balloon party.

For invitations, you can choose between classic paper tickets or email invitations. Free your imagination and create the style of the party.

Neutral colors and decorated treats for the baby party

The location must be decorated according to the theme of the Baby Shower. The colors and elements that distinguish the style of the party will have to appear throughout the set-up. Very chic are the pastel colors flanked by light shades such as white, gray, or beige.

Usually, the Baby Shower takes place in the afternoon. For the menu choose cookies, pastries, cupcakes, cake pop and cake. For a truly personalized touch, decorate all the sweets with the colors of the party.
Finally, to leave a memory to the guests, create gift bags in style with the event. The result will be perfect!
