There are various things to take into consideration when planning for a baby shower. If you're planning one, here are some of the things that you have to consider when planning for a baby shower (not necessarily in order):
You can choose the theme or ask the mother-to-be of her preferences. The theme will be important since it affects most of the other considerations mentioned below like invitations, food and beverages and venue.
Usually, baby showers are given four to six weeks prior to the baby's due date. You should try to consider the schedules of the people and friends who will be attending the baby shower and try to find a date where as much people can be as available to attend the party.
There are a lot of baby shower invitations that you can find online but try to find one which matches the theme of your party. Try to send the invitation weeks in advance so that those invited can squeeze in the event to their schedule.
4. Food and Beverages
Don't forget the food and beverages because no party will be complete without it. Sandwiches, burgers, juice, soft drinks and some finger foods come in handy although it really depends on your party's theme, budget and time. Just don't forget the cake!
You can decorate the venue according to the theme that you picked.You can do it in the mother-to-be's house, your home or another venue where you can accommodate the number of guests that you're anticipating to come.
It is important to always consider your budget because everything boils down to this one. Work according to your budget.
7. Party Favors
Don't forget the party favors for the guests. It will make this party memorable for all those who attended. You can even include the thank you notes in the party favors themselves - two birds in one stone.
