Have you offered to host a baby shower for an expecting mother? This is a time of great joy and celebration. There are so many options to make this a personalized and festive event. You are truly only limited by your imagination and budget. Follow these simple recommendations from the event planning experts and you’ll soon be showering the expectant mother with memories to last a life time. Let’s get this party started!
There are a myriad of terrific websites that offer templates for eVites for baby showers. Select a template, complete the information providing the date, time, theme and venue. Be sure to name the guest of honor. Collect the email addresses of the invitees and sent the eVites at least one month prior to the event. The dashboard will indicate who has opened the eVite and tally the RSVPs. Know that some spam filter will prevent eVites from being delivered to inboxes. If an invitee has not opened their eVite within a week of receipt, assume it did not make it through the spam filter and email an invitation directly to the individual.
If you’re planning a luncheon or brunch for the shower, a simple buffet is casual and very appropriate. Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and select a fun arrangement for a centerpiece from the huge variety available from 1800Flowers.com. Menu items can be as simple as small sandwiches, a fruit salad and croissant. These choices are sure to be crowd pleasers. It’s always a fun idea to order a special cake or cupcakes commemorating the occasion. Use your imagination.
One of the more popular trends at baby showers is to set up a photo booth. This can be as simple as a fun back drop with either an empty picture frame with the occasion written across the top or by hanging a baby shower banner. All the guests will certainly enjoy posing for photos with the expectant mother. Identify a comfortable chair for the guest of honor to open gifts and share with the guests. No doubt your generosity and creativity will be appreciated by the mother to be. Have a grand time hosting the baby shower!
