Baby Shower Themes – Picking the Perfect One!
Planning a baby shower is the perfect opportunity to create a memorable celebration for the mom-to-be. It can be an incredibly meaningful event as she anticipates her most precious arrival. Once you choose a theme, all of the other elements will come together quickly. When sorting through possible baby shower theme ideas, take the following details into consideration:
Is the party planned for the afternoon or the evening? The time of day can impact the theme, as some are better suited for earlier hours, while others can work well for day or night.
The time of year can influence your theme ideas. You may want to play up a seasonal theme.
Think about the guest list- will the party be for ladies only, or will it be a couple’s shower? Will children also be invited to a family friendly party, or will it be adults only? Once you determine the type of guests to invite, choosing a theme can be easier.
Hobbies & Interests of the Mom-to-Be
A great way to really wow the mom-to-be is by choosing a theme that you know she’ll love. Ponder her hobbies, interests, and favorite things when poring over theme options.
Where will you hold the baby shower? Some themes may call for a specific type of location, while others can be pulled off just about anywhere with enough space.
An Important Tip– You may want to run some ideas by the parents to be. If you want the party theme to be a surprise, give them a few options and let them choose their Top 5. You can go from there 😉
