Baby shower is a perfect way to celebrate motherhood and blessing the yet-to-be born baby. It’s the best time for mums-to-be to get surprised with unique gifts for her and her baby. The ceremony is traditionally held when the mother-to-be completes her seventh month of pregnancy.
The little one is on its way and what better way to celebrate it other than baby shower? Check out our tips to make this special event memorable.
Theme: Choose a theme before organising invites, decorations etc. The theme should be centered around the new baby. Like if you don’t know the gender you could do a common theme but if you know it’s going to be a girl or boy you can choose accordingly.
Location: You can have a classy or casual baby shower near a pool, in the park, or even on the terrace.
Décor: Take a trip down memory lane with the mom-to-be’s own childhood photographs and possessions. Guests could add to this by leaving letters for the baby or sweet notes for the mom.
Food and Drinks: A lot of moms-to-be are very health-conscious today – which shouldn’t stop them from having a good time. A ‘diet’ theme where baked or steamed goods are complemented by fruits, vegetables, and juices can be a great idea, not just for the mom but for the guests.
Entertainment: From music, dance to mehndi artists, think of a few entertaining past-times for everyone. A photo booth with baby shower party props is must.
Gifts: The mom-to-be definitely gets gifts. But gifts aren’t just for the mom! Just like in birthday parties, give the guests a return favours or token of appreciation. This could be in the form of scarves, books, scented candles, and so on.
Games: It may be something simple like guessing the gender of the baby just by looking at mum’s belly, creating a name-list for your baby or blindfolded diaper changing. Adding fun themes to the event, like having everyone dress up like they’re pregnant too (stuffing pillows on their bellies), will be a lot of fun.
