Organizing a Fun & Simple Baby Shower: Tips and Ideas

June 09, 2017


You’ll be overwhelmed once your new baby arrives, so take some time and prepare for their arrival. Your friends and family don’t necessarily need to organise a baby shower for you, as you can host your own, but ensure you do enlist the help of your closest friends.

There are so many choices to make, from theme to a pretty baby shower dress, but having a fun baby shower serves many purposes—sharing your personal announcement with your closest friends and family—and having them help with your newborn’s layette.

To Theme or Not?

Party themes are hot, but they’re not for everybody. Party themes are reflected in the decorations and colours of paper plates and utensils, and even balloons. Unless you really love the idea of a super hero, royalty, tropical, etc. type of party, you don’t have to cave into your friend’s ideas. Simply select two contrasting colours and choose your supplies wisely.

Answering That Big Question

It’s difficult keeping the secret of boy or girl, and often people will ask you what colour clothing they should buy. But there’s a way around the whole colour thing and it’s perfect if you hate pink or blue. Simply ask for gender-neutral colours that will work for a boy or a girl: white, beige, royal blue, mint green, gold, or salmon. Or, givers can purchase multi-coloured or patterned items that will look good on any newborn baby.

Many people choose to leave gift opening until the next day, but this leaves the guests disappointed. Ensure you allot plenty of time for gift-opening, so that everyone can see what you’ve received. Have a friend record names and gifts so that you can send proper thank you notes in the mail the next day.


Unique Baby Gender Reveal Ideas

Many parents won’t reveal the gender of their baby until the baby shower. Order a special cake that’s filled with either blue or pink cake or icing inside. When the mom-to-be cuts into the cake, the gender is revealed! It’s even more fun if you’re having twins of both genders!

You can also gamify it and have guests fill out a card with boy or girl answers.You can encourage people to guess by offering a small prize—perfects a recent photograph of yourself. The additional surprise can be that everyone wins!
