When it’s a party, it’s a time for decorations! To have a perfect baby shower party, one should start planning at least a week before on party decorations. Though the local fashion, design, can be a way for ideas on decorations, yet you have to plan your decorations according to your needs and budget.
The venue of the event should be lighted in a mild fashion with shower decorations hanging from these lamps. If it’s a baby girl, it can be pink twisted ribbons, cloths or veils. One may go for blue or green if it’s a baby boy. The entire path starting from the entrance to the hallway should be decorated with these lamps. One may also go for votive candles placed in empty baby food containers or jars, which in a way will cut off your cost to an extent. You can hang baby shower decorations from the ceilings and even in walls. For a baby girl shower decoration, drape the ceilings with twisted pink ribbons and then hang tulle or veil bags from these ribbons. Fill up these bags with jellybeans, strawberries and gums which your guests would love to have as a surprise. You may hand these bags to the guests as snacks or ask them to take home as souvenirs.The walls can be decorated with rag dolls put in small bags, just like baby kangaroos in mother’s pouches. Name the dolls in the name of the baby and give them to the guests as souvenirs.
A major part of the baby shower party is the baby shower games or the activities that are carried out in the midst of the party. There are various traditional baby shower activities and some of these are very popular in shower parties.
o Baby shower bingo
o Asking the guests to guess the date of birth of the child
o Guess the baby food flavor: guests have to taste-test several flavors of baby food and try to identify them
There are a lot more that you can add on to make a fun-filled party.
Baby shower food items are one of the most important features of baby shower. When guests arrive at a baby shower they are expecting food that includes desserts, appetizers, and baby shower finger food. You don’t really have to plan an entire meal; it isn’t really expected at this kind of event. A good idea is to have a good menu on “baby shower food on hand” which will be served to guests when they are into the activities. Baby shower food items are often designed based on the theme. Again if it’s a girl baby shower party, a strawberry dessert will be in theme of the party. A baby shower cake with a pink icing again is an added feather to the party of a baby shower party for a girl. If the baby is a boy, one may use blue or green instead of pink.
