A few tips for a successful baby shower
Everybody loves mementos and if you have a printer at home this is a fun thing that you can do. For a nice surprise, conspire with the mom-to-be and make some thank you cards in advance. Include a personalized message inside but be sure not to seal the envelopes. Take a number of pictures during the baby shower and sneak into a back room every now and again to print up some of the best, at least 1 of each guest. This way you can acquire a keepsake photo for each guest that you can include inside the thank-you card. Once the picture is added, seal the envelope and put the guest’s name on it for handing out when they go to leave. It is just a little thing but the personal note and memento photo really add that thoughtful touch which your guests will be sure to remember. Also, don’t forget to insist on RSVP for that you can plan the evening’s entertainment. Traditionally a baby shower just included women but these days it can be just about anyone. Coworkers, lots of kids… your entertainment will depend on who will be attending so be sure to get that RSVP so that you can select something that will fit your crowd.
A last-minute tip
Oh, and don’t forget finger foods. Main entrees are nice and cake is yummy, but nothing contents a crowd quite like a selection of snacks and things to dip them in! Couple those with some non-alcoholic drinks pre-mixed in plastic containers with taps (so that your guests can serve themselves) and you’ll have happy, full guests in no time.
Some final words
Well, there you have it. When it comes to planning the perfect princess themed baby shower, the biggest parts are setting the atmosphere and taking care of your guests. Invitations can be hand-made or you can easily find cards at a local shop with a princess on the front which are blank inside. Yes, you could use form invites, but it’s always better when you can keep things personal. So get those invites written up and start planning what foods you are going to have, which decorations you like best, and what’s going to be in those gift boxes for your guests. A little princess is coming into this world soon and she deserves the honor of a royal reception!
