When you find out that a close friend is expecting, it’s only natural to want to throw her a baby shower. If you don’t that’s fine as well, however this is for those who wish to throw an unforgettable shower for a loved one.
One of the very first things you need to is discuss with the mother-to-be and set a date for the party. Everything revolves around her comfort, after all. You need to decide on a budget as well, according to whether you are paying for it or if other friends/family are contributing to it. Once you have done so, create a guest list, along with contact details. Before you purchase anything like invitations, pick a theme. All the baby shower supplies will be bought in accordance to that theme. Once it has been selected it is easy to find items pertaining to the theme, on any baby shop online in Singapore.
Choose a venue where the event will be held. Keep in mind the theme and the number of guests when selecting the place. Decide on how you will provide food for the shower. Will you be cooking the food yourself or will you be turning to a catering service? Prepare a menu of what you wish to have as well. Send out the invitations to the guests. When mailing the invitations, consider if the expecting mother has registered for baby shower gifts that has offer competetive price. If she has, send a list of the items along with the card. If you are baking a cake now is the time to get your supplies together or if not, order the cake. Order any food from the caterers if you wish to do so.
Buy any and all decorative items for the venue. Order any flowers necessary for decoration. Procure the necessary number of tables and chairs for the guests. Gather the things needed for the games to be played at the shower as well as prizes for the winners. Book a photographer for the event. Confirm the booking of the venue and the caterers. Purchase whatever is require for any party favours you will be giving out.
The day before the baby shower, decorate the venue. Set the tables and chairs, and place the goody bags and game items around the place. On the morning of the shower, bring the food and refreshments in to the venue or have the food brought in. Place the cake in the centre, for it to be visible to everyone. As people start to arrive and mingle, sit back and relax. Your friend is sure to be appreciative of all the hard work you’ve gone through for her baby shower.
