Celebrate the Arrival of Your Little One

Planning a baby shower or a party after the birth of the baby is one of the best gifts you can give to a friend who is expecting. But once you get down to planning, there are few main areas that you need to take care of. Here are some of the steps that you need to follow in order to plan the best baby shower.

Date

The first step is to select the date. Traditionally this is usually when the mother is around sevenpregnant. But since these celebrations have now evolved in to parties after the birth too. An after celebration similar to a baby full month singapore is usually held after the little one turns one month. Consult the mother before deciding a date so you can have a date that is convenient and comfortable for her.

Budget

The next step is to plan a budget. This will help you to decide the type of venue you can look into, and the food items you need to order or prepare. Get the list of the guests from the guest of honour and then you can roughly decidethe amounts you need to spend. A budget will help you to stay away from spending too much on too many décor or food items.

Venue

Start choosing the venue after taking into consideration the number of guest who will be coming. If you want to throw the party at your home or the home of the parents that will add an intimate vibe to the party. But this will not be enough sometimes for a large number of guests. If you are looking for a separate venue however, find a nearby place – a hall, hotel/ restaurant etc. – where the guest of honour can travel easily to.

Décor

If you want to make the party interesting and have a theme, you can choose one of the themes that the guest of honour would like. You can even go by a colour theme as well. try to bring out you theme through the decorations you are using. There will be plenty of places where you can buy décor. You can make the day even more better by planning the menu to go with the theme as well. buy décor early to set up the venue, but if you are buying flowers it is better to wait till the day before.

Menu

Make sure you include the foods that will include the cravings of the guest of honour. And since she will not be able to consume alcoholic beverages before the birth, you will have to order non-alcoholic drinks too for her. Cupcakes, friedchicken and potato salad are some comfort food you can add for the mother.

Once all the steps above are complete, send out the invites. You will also have to plan an agenda and set up some activities to make the day enjoyable.
