The Baby Shower of a Lifetime

How to plan the baby shower of a lifetime.

So you’re planning a baby shower and you have no idea where to start? Worry not! Patti the Perfect Party Planner is here to give you a helping hand. Even if you’re not a professional party planner, I can give you the inside tips and tricks that will make the party you throw the party of a lifetime.

One Step at a Time

The first rule in planning any great baby shower is to take it one step at a time. Baby showers may seem overwhelming to plan at first, but if you break it down into easy steps, the task is much easier to tackle than it first appears.

Choose a Theme

The first thing on your list should be to choose a theme for the baby shower. Since everything you plan will revolve around the theme, it’s a critical part of the baby shower planning process. Once you have a theme set, decorations and a menu should easily fall into place.

Create a Menu

A great hostess knows that every party revolves around great food and a baby shower is no different, so the menu planning should follow your theme selection. Sit down and plan out a menu that will encompass the tastes of all the guests. Salty, sweet, exotic -- make sure that your menu has a wide variety of tastes and textures and it’s sure to be a hit.

Set the Tone

So the theme and the menu are underway. Now it’s time to select your décor. This is probably the best part of planning the baby shower. Be creative and have fun. There’s no limit as to what you can do when it comes to decorating for a baby shower. From diaper cakes to baby bottles for cups, the décor of the party is what will have the guests talking for years to come.

Organization is Key

The key to any great event, including a baby shower, is organizational planning. Plan when you’re going to do what, who’s in charge of what and make a checklist of what has been done and what still needs to be done. If you keep everything organized, chances are the baby shower will go without a hitch.
