Do you feel that throwing a baby shower can be a daunting task? But it isn't really a mammoth task if you know how to plan it right and where to look for the best supplies. Baby showers can be described as a celebration of new life, family and love. As a host or hostess, there are some finer points and subtle details that you can look into to make the event a huge success.
The three most important elements of planning on a baby shower are to decide on who will be hosting the party-an individual or whether it would be co-hosted, what would be the central theme of the shower and where it'd take place. Drawing up a guest list is what will come next. Once all these are done, you can get started on the little things like deciding on baby shower souvenirs and decorations. The best way to go is to plan on a theme and have everything else contribute towards it. Themes can add so many dimensions to a baby shower, and you can do just about anything from the color pink to the season in which baby will be arriving.
In recent years there has been a big shift towards 'going green'. More and more people are becoming aware about the benefits of using eco friendly products. Social events are also taking a turn towards the greener side to save our planet from natural hazards. There is indeed no better way to welcome a new baby than by hosting an eco friendly baby shower. Being eco friendly minimizes waste and ensures a better and longer life for future generations.
It is very easy to have a green baby shower. You can start it off by sending out beautiful eco-friendly invitations made from recycled paper and biodegradable products. Wrapping the baby shower favors in recycled paper is also a good idea. As for the party deco, you can avoid using disposable plates and cups. It might also be a good idea to have potted plants as centerpieces on tables and also as a giveaway for your guests. Choose a trendy diaper cake fashioned from cloth diapers, pins, ribbon, and topped with fresh flowers for your baby shower. Have fun games like asking your guests to guess how many diapers are in the centerpiece and offer a prize for the closest guess.
You can take your pick from numerous baby shower ideas, themes and activities. No matter what you choose, make sure you plan it right and in a way that makes your party unique and memorable.
