Throwing the perfect baby shower!
Here at UKMums.TV, we love baby showers and everything to do with throwing the perfect baby shower, from decorations, party games, to the presents and the highly anticipated cake! That’s why we have loved having Little Live Bizzy Bubs taking over UKMums.TV!
We couldn’t help but share our baby shower tips to go alongside the Bizzy Bubs Baby Shower Packs!
When's the best time to throw a baby shower in pregnancy?
The ideal time to have your baby shower or host one for a friend or family member is around the 7th or 8th month of the pregnancy, although don’t leave it too late, as it won’t give you much time to organise the gifts, plus the excitement could bring on the labour!
How do you let people know you're having a baby shower?
With a good old-fashioned paper invite, It’s good to make an effort with your invitations so your guests will be excited about attending.
Should it have a theme?
How do you make a baby shower look like a shower, rather than a party? It’s all about the baby-orientated decorations, the room should be baby-fied, but preferably in an elegant manner with a few banners, table centrepieces, baby-themed cookies and some suitable tableware. If you know what gender your baby is, you might want a pink or blue theme, or even go all out and have it as your favourite film or fancy dress!
What you offer will depend on how many people you're inviting, the time of day and where you're holding the shower. Tea parties are always popular as they're fairly simple to organise, suitable for all ages and you don't have to provide alcohol. Baby showers are all about finger food and nibbles.
Baby shower games and entertainment
Once you’ve got the décor sorted, how do you ensure your guests are entertained? There should ideally be a few baby shower games - but not too many - because the guests will like the chance to have a good chat too.
