Oh Baby! Tips for Planning the Perfect Baby Shower
A BABY shower is a wonderful occasion to gather friends and family to share the joy of a new bub on the way, and of course, shower the mum-to-be with love and care.
Today’s baby shower is not so much about setting a mama up with gifts for bub – though this can certainly be part of it – but rather about celebrating this special and unique time in her life and reflecting on memories of treasured friendships as she embarks on one of life’s most significant events.
While some ladies love to indulge their playful side with baby-themed fun and games, many others are just as happy to celebrate with a relaxed, girly day of tea, cake, and perhaps bubbles too.
Are you planning a baby shower for someone you love? Or looking to get the girls together to celebrate your own bundle of joy on the way?
Here are some ideas to get you inspired for a beautiful baby shower she will remember forever.
This is one occasion where you can throw on your prettiest frock and leave the guys behind for a morning or afternoon tea that is unashamedly girly, sipping from beautiful vintage tea ware and taking time to smell the roses. Tables set with lace and fresh flowers add to the atmosphere.
Colour me happy
Decide on a signature colour scheme for the celebration – pink and blue for a girl or a boy are still most popular, though gender neutral colours like green or yellow look fresh and fantastic. Choose reds for a romantic look, or monochrome to bring a new edge of elegance to the event.
Up, up and away
Balloons are the perfect way to up the fun factor of any celebration. Whether unashamedly over-the-top or more subtle, balloon garlands remain one of the year’s top styling trends, and feature an assortment of balloons in all sizes and colours to match your theme, suspended above or around your function area or even to adorn a certain feature within the space such as a welcome sign.
Flower queen for a day
For creative mamas-to-be (or even just those who love pretty things!) a flower crown workshop is a wonderful activity for baby showers and bridal showers.
Not only does it give guests something extra to do between all the revelry, the result is a beautiful floral headpiece that looks simply stunning for photos, and is a lovely take-home favour.
Ensure you book with a professional florist who will be able to source the best quality blooms and share top tips on how to make your flower crown a true beauty worthy of the boho goddesses you are.
