It’s no secret that planning a baby shower should be an exciting and enjoyable event for everyone involved. Most brides, about 30%, say they plan their weddings for seven to 12 months, but fortunately, baby shower planning typically takes much less time. If you’re planning a baby shower, consider getting seasonal with a winter theme. Here are just a few ideas for planning a winter-themed baby shower.
Serve Comfort Food Classics
First, keep your guests warm and toasty by choosing classic comfort food options. Soups and stews are great options because they’re filling and generally more affordable. For finger foods, ditch the generic veggie trays and opt for something hot.
“Avoid the traditional cold finger foods, like the standby vegetable tray and fruit bowl, and instead go with warmer fare, such as banana nut muffins, pigs in a blanket and mini quiches. If your guest list has grown as large as the guest of honor’s belly, consider serving a hearty stew or soup with a crusty bread and finishing it off with a peach cobbler fresh from the oven,” writes Kelly Sundstrom in Parenting Magazine.
Use The Natural Decor To Your Advantage
Making the most of a winter baby shower is all about choosing the best venue to bring it to life. You obviously can’t have it outdoors, but doing your best to incorporate wintry elements into the decor and scenery can help create the right atmosphere. You also have a good chance of finding discounted winter decorations if you’re waiting until after the Christmas season. Don’t hesitate to go all out with stringed lights, snowflake banners, and other wintry decor.
Incorporate Winter-Themed Games And Activities
Finally, consider incorporating wintry elements into any games and activities you might have planned. One fun example is to ask guests to write their best piece of parenting advice onto precut snowflakes and then open them and read them aloud. Anything goes with winter-themed baby shower games!
Ultimately, understanding how to make the most of the season and finding the best venue is the key to planning the picture perfect baby shower any time of year. For more information about baby shower venues in Miami, contact Renaissance Miami.
