Step 1: Use the nursery decor as a theme
Use the baby's nursery decor as a theme and incorporate this theme into the invitations, decorations, and food.
Step 2: Send invitations
Get names and addresses of people the mother wants to invite to the shower; then complete and mail invitations.
Step 3: Prepare party favors
Prepare party favors for each guest, which can range from cookies to engraved baby spoons.
Step 4: Prepare prizes and games
Purchase and prepare small game prizes and any party games that you will play.
Some women do not like party games. Always ask the guest of honor her opinion of party games.
Step 5: Decorate
Decorate the baby shower location with items that fit the theme.
Be creative with your choices. Baby shower decorations can go beyond blue or pink streamers and balloons.
Step 6: Prepare food, drinks, and tableware
Prepare food, drinks, and tableware, which can fit into your overall theme with a bit of creative planning.
When planning a menu, keep the guest of honor in mind. Serve food that she will enjoy and leave out items she dislikes.
Step 7: List gifts
List the gifts the mother-to-be receives during the shower and whom they are from.
Baby showers became popular after World War II. Before then, they were often only for the wealthy and occurred alongside a baptism.
