Baby Shower Survival Guide - 11 Easy Steps For A Great Shower

Showering the Mom, and often the Dad, with friendship and love is the purpose of a baby shower. You will succeed in hosting a lovely, touching shower by using our suggestions below. Use our ten steps below, and you're on your way to success!

1. Who will plan

Anyone can host a baby shower for the new "parents to be". It can be a family member, a friend, or a co-worker. If it is a surprise shower, then the family can help out with the guest list and gift items.

2. Budget

To determine how much the shower will cost, you will need to know the number of guests, the location of the shower, the menu, what type of party favors, and how many game prizes you will need.

3. Guest List

Organize your guest list by asking the parents-to-be who they would like to have at the shower. Usually this includes friends and family, but a few close co-workers may also be invited. Get address, phone numbers, and email addresses. Decide if it will be a "girl's only" shower or "couples".

4. Invitations

Invitations can range from the casual (a phone call) to the most formal (printed invitations). You decide what will work for your shower. Be sure to include all necessary contact information. Consider also including your email if you check it often.

5. Pick a shower type & theme

Baby showers are fun! Be a kid again with teddy bears and stuffed animals. Or invite couples and do a buffet or outdoor party. Whatever theme you choose, remember this will be the baby's first party. Have fun!

6. Selecting the menu

Although your menu should reflect your theme, the time of day is as important - as well as the number of guests. Make this a day of celebration for the Mother-to-be or parents-to-be, her guests, and yourself. Consider the amount of time and room available for the shower, as well as any special dietary needs of the Mother-to-be and her guests.

7. Location

Choose a location that is easy to get to and will accommodate the needs of the party. Generally, baby showers are held at the home of the host. Have an idea of how many people you expect before arranging any final details.

8. Select the date

The baby shower is normally around six weeks before the due date of the baby's birth. However, some mothers are electing to have the party after the baby is born. Showers are held on weekends and during the week. Try to make the time and day convenient for everyone including any out-of-town guests.

9. Selecting the time

If most of the guests attending the shower work, then an evening or weekend shower will work best. Consider a weeknight for a change of pace if everyone lives near each other. If you choose a weekend date, plan your shower early enough in the day for all who must travel to attend. Be sure to keep in mind the Mother's schedule (naps, doctors appointments, etc.).

10. Games

Every fun baby shower includes at least one game. And don't forget the prizes!

11. Environment

As guests arrive, introduce them to one another. As a unique conversational item, ask your guests to wear a small photo of their child on their shirt. Who doesn't love to brag about their child?!? Another way to break the ice is to provide name tags with a small note, such as, "I attended grammar school with Susie". This is a sure way to start conversations. Make sure to offer your guests liquid refreshments and whatever else you have provided. Set the mood with lighted candles, flowers, and decorations. You want your guests to enjoy the day (or evening) as much as the guest of honor.
