About baby shower organisation

Tip #1: pick a host

 Originally, baby showers may not be held in the mother’s or sister of the mother-to-be’s house, but rules have changed now, and the shower can be hosted at whoever house one wants. Additionally, ancient etiquette of inviting the father or father-to-be and his friends but today’s baby showers can be called for, and so the men are welcome as well under the obvious approval of mother or mother-to-be.

Tip #2: Make a guest list

A baby shower is an important event, where one has to be surrounded by friends and family. Invite aunt, sisters, cousins and best friends. Colleagues or close business partners may also be welcome. That way, you will be able to determine the quantity of food and drinks and make sure you haven’t forgotten anybody.

Tip #3: Choose a fun invitation

An original invitation will encourage the guests to come. Choose a theme and ask a card designer or a talented friend to help you.

Tip #4: Send your invitation three weeks in advance

By sending your invitations early, your friends and family will have time to make room in their agenda. Also, for a more traditional effect, send invitations by mail. Don’t forget to specify a date for RSVP!

Tip #5: First or second child?

Baby showers are always more extravagant for the first newborn. If you are hosting a baby shower for a second child, you don’t have to make it such a big event. Just invite really close friends and family.

Tip #6: Simple flowers

A simple bouquet represents the simplicity of beauty just like a newborn child. No need for an extravagant masterpiece.

Tip #7: Alternative seating

A very common problem is seating. To make sure none of your guests are forced to stand up, put in a dozen extra chairs or provide throw pillows or ottomans for your guests to sit on.

Tip #8: Provide a theme

Themes are always more fun, even though it depends which ones. Try a coloured theme with pastel colours, depending on the baby’s gender. Whatever you do, keep it minimal, you want the attention to be on your belly bump, not the decorations.

Tip #9: Candy decoration

Garnish your baby shower table with flute glasses, vases or jars, each filled with a coupling of jelly bean flavours (ex: coconut and pineapple, lemon and lime, cherry and vanilla).

Tip #10: Gifts table

Instead of filling the central table or buffet with a centrepiece, let it be filled by your guests presents. Stack it all in a elegant pile to make it eye-pleasing. With MyList, you can organise a baby shower wish list together with the mother-to-be and we will make sure to deliver all the gifts for the party.
