How to throw a baby shower?
Set the date. A baby shower is usually held in the middle of the third tri-mester, 4 or 6 weeks before the baby is due.
Comprise a guest list. Pick out who you want to invite. Back in the day these parties were exclusive for women. Nowadays, however, it is more and more common to invite the father, as well as your closest male friends.
Pick a venue. Whether you would do it at your house, or you want to set a special place, make sure you have the number of people you want to invite beforehand, so you know how big the venue needs to be.
Pick a theme. The most popular themes amongst baby showers for girls are: mermaid theme, Minnie Mouse theme, Heaven sent, etc. However, the theme can be decided according to you and your partner’s personal preferences.
Sent out the invitations. Make sure you include the date, time and place. Moreover, if you are throwing the party for someone else, be sure to include their name in the invite. The invite should match the overall theme and should be sent out at least 3 weeks prior to the event.

6. Pick out the decorations. Of course, the decor should match the theme. You can also have some DIY baby shower decorations. Balloons, confetti, fun garlands, go crazy. The more colorful the party is, the better. After all, you are organising an event for a little baby. You need more colors. What’s more, lavish centerpieces are all the rage right now and you would need one for your refreshments table, as well as the gift table.
7. Decide on food and drinks. Just because the party is for a baby, doesn’t mean you can only serve finger food. A good dinner goes a long way and is definitely going to be appreciated by your guests. Cake and desserts are also a must. When it comes to drinks, it is a question of whether the mommy-to-be wants to have alcohol at the party or not. If she doesn’t mind then a few good cocktails and mimosas are perfect. If not, however, you can always go with the virgin versions of her favorite drinks.
8. Come up with interesting games. 2 or 3 games are more than enough. There are many ideas for fun games to have at a baby shower. For example, you can get a couple of baby dolls and a few diapers and get people to change the doll’s diaper while blindfolded. This game will bring lots of laughs for sure.
9. Provide party favors. Make sure your guests are going to leave your baby shower with a physical memory of it. You can style your party favor according to the theme of the whole event.
