Baby Showers You Can Be Proud Of

How to plan the crème de le crème of baby showers.

So you’re planning a baby shower and you want to know how to plan baby showers that everyone will be talking about for years to come? Worry not. Patti the Perfect Party Planner is here to give you some tips on how to plan the crème de le crème of baby showers.

The Ambiance

The first thing that you need to do when planning fabulous baby showers is to plan the décor. The décor is what’s going to have people talking, so think big when you’re making these plans.

Think crystal, think china, think sparkling fountains of bubbling grape juice or fountains of rich creamy chocolate. Think diaper cakes and baby shoe sugar holders. In other words, think outside of the box.

The Entertainment

Once you have the décor covered, it’s time to start planning the entertainment. Unless you keep smiles on your guests’ faces, the party’s not going to be a blast. If you really want to outdo yourself, you can hire live entertainment. Otherwise you can just plan games for baby showers for the guests to play while at the party.

The Menu

You can’t forget that behind all great baby showers stands a great menu. Make sure that you plan a menu that is sure to please all of your guests. From appetizers to desert, you’ll want a wide array of tastes and textures to ensure that your menu is a hit.

Also make sure that you take the special needs of any guests into consideration. Is anyone going to be requiring a kosher meal? Is anyone going to need sugar-free goodies? A good hostess asks herself all of these questions when planning her menu.

The Gifts

Let’s face it, one of the best parts of baby showers are the gifts. This means that you’re going to want to make gift-opening time a grand event.

Keep all of the gifts neatly piled on a prominent table throughout the party and when it’s time to open them, make sure the mom-to-be opens her gifts in a place where everyone will be able to see her.

With a little bit of effort and a bit more planning, you’ll be able to throw the best of the best when it comes to awesome baby showers.
