Throwing a baby shower is always a special occasion, but you’ve probably been to a few that were a little boring. You don’t want yours to go the same way, right? These tips will help you to make your baby shower so much fun! That’s right – people will actually want to come, and they’ll enjoy themselves. Read on to learn more:
Serve Some Inventive Mocktails
Make sure you have tea and coffee for those that want it, but how about coming up with some inventive mocktails too? You can have fun with presentation and different ingredients so that your guests get an exciting drink to celebrate with.
Make sure you serve snacks for your guests too. You don’t need to do anything super fancy. A few sandwiches, finger snacks, and cupcakes should do the trick. You could always get creative with your food display to add to the decor.
Invite Men Too
Only inviting women to baby showers is so old fashioned. Who says men don’t care about babies? Either way, they’ll enjoy a drink and some food with friends. Invite everybody who will have something to do with the baby. Godmothers, godfathers, uncles, aunts – you get the picture! You’ll have a much better time when everybody you care about is there.
Keep Your Games As Classy As Possible
Sure, come up with some great games and have fun. Just make sure the games you come up with are as classy as possible. Who wants to pretend to eat chocolate poop out of a diaper? It isn’t funny anymore. There are lots of fun and creative games you can come up with that are much better than this. You could create play dough babies, or have a go at creating baby’s first portrait in 60 seconds. There are so many ideas online, and you could give a prize for the best effort.
Make A Fun Playlist
Make a fun playlist to set the tone of the shower too. Make sure it’s long enough that you’re not just listening to repeated songs the whole time. You could make it so that each song has the word ‘baby’ in it, for example, or come up with a fun theme of your own.
Allow Guests To Open A Gift
Opening the gifts in front of guests can be a little tedious for everyone. It takes a long time! How about letting each guest open a gift so you can all oooh and aaah together while saving a bunch of time? This way, everybody gets to see the gifts and the mom-to-be doesn’t have to spend an hour boring everybody. These ideas for your next baby shower will make the party so much fun as the gifts aren’t what you’d find on the high street!
Hopefully, these tips to help make your baby shower so much more fun. Have fun with the decor, playlist, games – just about anything you can think of to make this shower one of a kind. Leave your own suggestions in the comments. See you next time!
