You’ve been eagerly waiting for your best friend’s bundle of joy to arrive.
You’ve been waiting to see whether they will look like mommy or daddy, and you are super excited! You’ve been planning their baby shower for weeks but you’re still not prepared.
You think: What should the theme be? How can we execute the plan within our budget?
But with a few simple steps, you can make it a simple process. Here’s what you should do:
Plan Everything in Advance
It’s important to set a time and date and then work from there. You should prepare for everything in advance. The party does not have to be out of your budget or something super fancy. Remember that the simpler it is, the less stressful it will be.
And that is exactly what you want, a simple, stress-free party. Book the caterers and the decorators in advance. If there’s going to be cake, make sure to book the cake two days in advance. That way, everything will be planned out perfectly and you don’t have to worry about a thing!
Determine the Budget and Guest List
It’s important to work with the budget you have. Remember that nothing needs to be extra fancy. You can hire an event planner to do everything for you or you can ask another friend. You can also combine your budget with another friend and throw the party together.
Keeping that in mind, make sure to prepare the guest list beforehand. Call up people and see if they are available. Plan your party after you’ve confirmed people who are coming.
There’s no party that is complete without including activities. Some fun and games will engage your guests and will help them have a good time. Whether it’s classics like truth or dare, or pass-the-pillow, make sure to include activities so your guests don’t get bored!
Hire a Photographer
Make these fleeting moments last forever! You can’t throw a memorable baby shower without a photo album to remember it by! Sure, everyone will be taking selfies but a professional birth photographer NJ can capture these precious moments, and make them last a lifetime.
You can look back at these pictures twenty years later and relive the moments. Or you know, you can tease your friend about that one photo where they had a little bit of cake on the corner of their mouth!
