Party Tips for Organising a Baby Shower
Becoming an aunt and godparent for the first time is very exciting and a big responsibility – think of all the presents to buy and all that baby-sitting ahead! With the role of a friend or family member comes responsibility – including the chance to celebrate by hosting the best baby shower ever. Don’t feel daunted - Pink Frosting can show you how to make it fun and easy!
Choose a theme
First of all, choose a theme. If you know what gender the baby will be, then you can go for the traditional Baby Girl or Baby Boy shower theme. You may prefer to choose a motif as your inspiration, such as the Butterfly Dream Baby shower theme. Or if you want something fun and funky, then go for a Jungle baby shower theme. If the mum-to-be is chic and cool, the Mod Mum Baby shower theme may be perfect.
Choose a colour scheme
Now that you’ve chosen a theme, the hardest part is over! Decide on a colour scheme that ties in with your theme. Pink Frosting has gorgeous sugary sweet pink decorations, stationery, balloons and favors perfect for a Baby Girl shower theme. Welcome a baby boy with a colour scheme of soft sweet baby blue.
You’ll have more scope with colours if you’ve chosen a funkier theme. So if you’ve chosen a Duck baby shower theme, use bright yellow as your main colour, with red and white accessories. Or add colour and vibrancy to your room with green, red and brown decorations to complement a Jungle baby shower theme.
Don’t keep your guests in the dark - let them know what to expect by selecting invitations that reflect your theme. Send out Mod Mum Baby Shower Invitations to complement your hip mum theme, for instance. You’ll never run out of ideas with Pink Frosting’s huge range of baby shower invitations.
Now for the fun part! You can really splash out and find decorations that fit with your theme. Or, if you’re throwing a budget baby shower, Pink Frosting has some hints on how to be wise and watch your pennies.
Dress up your tables with tablecloths that match your theme, and then decorate them with coordinated accessories. Put pretty vases of flowers on each table and light candles that match a colour in your theme.
A centrepiece for the table could be a cupcake tree. Make yummy little cupcakes and wrap them in pretty designer cupcake wrappers to create a gorgeous tree. Place extra cupcakes into Heart favour boxes as little thank-yous for your guests.
Balloons are timeless decorations – fill them with helium and float them on the ceiling, or just blow them up yourself and tie them to chairs. There is a vast array to choose from including Pastel Adorable Ark Coloured balloons and Baby Boy Blue or Baby Girl Pink Pearl Balloons.
Lanterns are easy to work with, reusable and create a brilliant effect even on the smallest decorating budget. Pink Frosting has a huge variety, such as sophisticated luminous mini lanterns in silver or white, pretty Pink Polka Dot Lanterns or sweet mini blue lanterns.
Impress your guests and add to the atmosphere by matching your food to the theme of your baby shower. Plan your menu around the time of day and your budget. For a budget baby shower menu, host your party in the afternoon, and then you can serve light finger foods. Delicious tit-bits like mini quiches, canapés and cupcakes, with platters of fresh fruit, will keep your guests happy. If the baby shower is in the evening, then choose a dinner menu, but keep it simple. Ask your friends and family to help, or ask your guests to bring a plate.
Aunt for a first time gifts
Sometimes it’s hard to find that special gift for a baby shower - especially when it’s all new to you. Pink Frosting makes it easier for new aunts with a huge range of baby shower gifts that will make mums smile and babies giggle.
