25 Feb Five Ridiculously Easy Steps to Make the Perfect Baby Shower a Reality
Pregnancy can be a busy time. Health risks can worry parents. They worry about the mother, the baby, the familiar stress. Morning sickness enters the picture, making some tasks harder than they used to be for the mom-to-be. Even if everything is routine, stocking up on diapers, building a crib, and planning a baby shower can make for a hectic year. Some couples find themselves preparing for baby with a new house, a new car, or a big move. It’s madness.
With so much going on, friends and family often band together to put on the perfect baby shower. They plan large and small events, based on what the parents (and extended family) want out of the day. Some parties focus on a gender reveal. Some invitations state what the gender is to make gift-giving a little easier. HINT: Yellow, purple, and green are rarely questioned!
If you are planning a baby shower for somebody you love, here are five EASY steps to help:
STEP ONE: Make a guest list. This is why researching Events Venue and Meeting Spaces in Davie is suggested. You need to know how many guests you want to have for the event before the search begins. If not, you will be wondering how many tables you need while looking at pictures of spaces of various sizes. It gets confusing fast.
To secure the best Events Venue and Meeting Spaces in Davie, do your homework. Read reviews and look at prior event pictures. As you consider each venue, envision the party in the space. If it does not feel right, move on.
STEP TWO: Book a venue in advance! If you are in Florida, for example, you can research Events Venue and Meeting Spaces in Davie. Be sure the date isn’t too close to the pregnancy and that it works for the parents. Some parents may not feel comfortable having a shower a month before the due date. Others will feel a rush by cutting it close.
STEP THREE: Choose the food. Finding the right cuisine doesn’t have to be difficult. You can go with caterers. You can ask a relative to do the cooking (be careful with this one!). You could go with a venue that offers in-house catering (best option, in our opinion). By leaving the cooking up to the event venue, you worry less about coordinating with multiple vendors.
STEP FOUR: Finding entertainment. You may want to include games or activities at the party. You have to decide if the parents will open gifts at the event. Come ready with a plan so that when you explore event venues, you ask the right questions (Is there space for a game, is there a table for gifts, etc.). Better safe than sorry!
STEP FIVE: Breathe! Mom is taking a class on how to breathe while in labor. While, as the event planner, you need to do the same thing. Relax and have fun with the event. The family can’t take on any drama while the event is planned.
