I’m giving you the exact Baby Shower Checklist I use, so that you can start planning an amazing baby shower and on a budget!
Let’s dive into how you can plan a baby shower on a budget.
A friend or family’s home is a great venue to host the baby shower. It keeps costs down and you can decorate it to your hearts content! If it’s a spring or summer baby shower a nice garden marquee can be set up allowing you to have more space to play fun games.
Baby Shower invitations have come a long way, instead of ‘snail-mail’ people are opting to send invitations via email and social media. Other online invitation services such as Evite and Paperless are great way to send email invites without the added cost of paper invites and stamps.
Food and drink
Food and drink doesn’t have to be an expensive at a babyshower. Opt for everyone bringing a dish to the event ‘Pot-luck party’ and you can then have a wide selection of dishes for everyone to choose from.
Check out your local food stores as they often have cold buffet sandwich platters, these are a great way to make sure your guests have a little during the fun.
At Nappytastic we particular like to have a ‘Mocktail reception’ drink when each guest arrives. All the fun of cocktails just without the alcohol so that the Mummy-To-Be can indulge as well.
This is where the fun begins and can be great ice breakers for your guests. When choosing baby shower games we suggest a mixture of 3-4 games, both mentally challenging and also physically. The Nursery Rhyme game is a very popular game, but make sure know one uses Google to find the answers. Yes, it has happened at many of our baby showers before!
Prizes can be homemade such as bath bombs, pots of nail varnish to candles. Be creative in what you give as prizes, we love to give things people can either eat or use.
Go to town with your creativity!
Tissue pom, poms are a great way to decorate any venue mixed in with helium balloons, flower walls and tissue paper tassels.Baby onesies and socks are super cute on a washing line around the room make the event super cute.
