4 Tips for Planning Your Baby Shower

baby shower venues

A baby shower is a special time and deserves a ton of attention. This is a day to make the mom-to-be feel extra special and get everyone excited for the new member of the family. From searching for the right venue to deciding on the food and drinks served, here are a few tips to get you started on your baby shower planning.

1. Decide On a Location

The first decision you need to make will be location. Baby shower venues can really impact a lot of your other decisions with party planning. You want to choose a spot where everyone will be comfortable, and that appeals to the style of the new parents. Another basic will be the guest lists and invitations. You need to get this nailed down months in advance. Along with invites you’ll need to include information for the baby registry as well. According to a report by What to Expect, 75% of expecting parents will create a baby registry. You’ll also want to establish a schedule for the day’s events so that it runs smoothly.

2. Mail Out Invitations

You need to strategically plan out the timing for sending out invitations. You need to make sure that all of your information is nailed down; time, date, location, and RSVP details. You should also include the registry information.

3. Finalize the Menu

You can’t have a party without food. The baby shower menu is important. Food can complement the theme and colors that have already been chosen. Make sure to double-check any type of food allergies or aversions. Remember, some moms-to-be will have food aversions so you should keep these in mind. You’ll also want to consider the time of year, as that can also help to inform food choices as well.

4. Make a Clean-Up Plan

You need to have a plan in place for clean-up before the day arrives. This is a detail that often gets overlooked and then on the day of the event, there’s a little chaos surrounding cleaning up and wrapping up the event. Go ahead and designate your clean-up helpers, decide how garbage will be handled, and who will return any items or equipment that was rented.
