4 great baby shower ideas
Throwing a baby shower for a friend or family member is a huge honour! You can’t wait to help them make some meaningful memories. You want this to be a special day your loved one will never forget.
So, to help you out, here are some great baby shower ideas to help you make this day one to remember.
Create an inviting atmosphere
Throwing a lovely baby shower means you have to set the right atmosphere. There are some great things you can add to create an atmosphere the mother-to-be will enjoy. Why not play some soft children’s music in the background? The guests will love hearing their favourite Disney soundtracks playing throughout the party. Of course, when thinking about atmosphere, scent also plays a role, so make sure you have an Airoma product on hand. Try our Enchanted Lily Aerosol for a fresh floral scent that everyone will love. It brings the fragrance of lilies fresh from the forest into your home, creating an inviting and relaxed atmosphere.
This is a popular activity at baby showers and there’s a good reason for that. Babies go through babygrows quickly, so why not have an activity that leaves the mother-to-be with loads of cute clothes? All you need is a bunch of plain white onesies and non-toxic baby-safe paint and markers. Each guest can decorate a babygrow for the little one to wear. One piece of helpful advice, get a variety of sizes that will last the baby for at least the first year.
Who’s that baby?
Ask every guest to bring a picture of themselves as a baby to the party. Secretly put these pictures up on a board. The mother-to-be then has to match the baby to the grownup. It’s lots of fun and the cute baby pictures will have everyone oohing and aahing. You can even add a little incentive by giving the guest of honour a small prize every time she guesses correctly.
Sometimes, new parents need advice more than anything. This jar will contain valuable parenting advice from the mother-to-be’s closest friends and family. As the guests walk in, they will be handed a pen and paper to write down the one thing they wished they’d known about having children. Guests without children are also welcome to contribute ideas.
Being asked to throw your loved one a baby shower is a big compliment and you obviously want to do the best job you can. The above ideas will help get the ball rolling and make the party truly special.
