How to Plan a Baby Shower?
Are you expecting? Or maybe you are planning a baby shower for your sister, niece, or best friend and don't know where to start? Well, you've come to the right place! We have prepared the cutest pink baby shower party ideas for the mom-to-be.
What is a Baby Shower?
A baby shower is a day when your loved ones come together to express their joy at your pregnancy and "shower" you with gifts and good wishes. Usually, baby showers are hosted around 5 weeks before the birth; by then, you know the baby's gender and can decorate the party according to it. Most baby shower parties are all-female affairs, but it doesn't mean that dad-to-be or male family members can't attend the celebration. Depending on the number of people, it is possible to hold it in your home, or you can look for a popular baby shower venue near you.
Make a beautiful Baby Shower dessert table. Use desserts like macaroons, candy-floss, onesie themed cookies, popcorn, and baby-themed cupcakes. Pink lemonade, for example, will look great in mini plastic bottles with silk ribbons. Decorate your party table with super cute tableware (plates, cups, napkins, napkin rings etc.)
The classic combination of flowers and balloons can instantly dress up a baby shower party. There are so many pretty pink shades and flowers you can choose from. If you are not a professional florist, we recommend you go for roses and carnations; they are easy to work with and fit the occasion.
Balloons will always finish off the touches for your baby shower celebration. You can either scatter pink balloons around the room or create a beautiful balloon garland or an arch. This balloon garland kit includes step-by-step instructions and all the tools required to make a beautiful Pink Balloon Garland that will stay for days (even weeks) after the party.
"Thank you" Gifts
Express some gratitude to your friends and family for helping you welcome your baby into the world. It's always nice to send out thank-you cards after the event. You can either use an online card sending service or design, print and send your beautiful cards by post.
