There are few tasks as enjoyable as organizing a baby shower. There is no science involved but arranging these parties implies a lot of work and coordination. Making plans well ahead of the date can make things easier and cheaper. And for those of us who love babies, planning a baby shower is also fun. So, let’s see some tips and ideas for a baby shower:
There are many things to take charge of: Picking a theme and color scheme for the party and invitations, preparing a baby photograph album, making the list of guests, sketching out the baby shower invitations and creating them or sending the model to print, etc. All of this requires patience and dedication if you want to prepare a party that will be unforgettable and create memories that all will cherish.
Pick A Theme and Color Scheme
The first thing to do is to select a theme and color scheme for the party and invitations. Remember that the best thing to do is to select two contrast colors like a light color and a dark color and a third color to ease the difference whenever needed. Remember that when it comes to babies, pastel or muted colors are the preferred ones due to being soft and easy going on the eyes.
As regards to the theme of the baby shower, pick an object and work around it. For example you can pick a building like a castle, an animal like a duck, a cartoon character like Powerpuff girls or Barney or anything else related to babies or kids. Be original and avoid the clichés: blue for boys, pink for girls are too predictable; the color pallet offers endless possibilities.
Sketch Out The Baby Shower Invitations
Matching the colors you’ve chosen for the party’s decoration, you need to sketch out the invitations. Don’t forget to include in the invitations all the necessary information regarding the location of the party and both the date and time of the celebration. There are further things that can be included like an address or phone number for confirming attendance, etc.
Do Them Yourself or Have Them Printed?
Once everything is designed you need to decide whether you are going to make the invitations yourself or have them printed. The printing job may be expensive but it’s more professional and will end up being more appealing. If you can’t afford the fee, most printing companies accept credit cards so you can finance the purchase of the invitations.
Also, if you are lacking funds for the whole preparation of the baby shower, a smart thing to do, instead of buying everything with credit cards, is to resort to an unsecured loan. You can get one of these from your local back or from online sources you’ll easily find by searching the internet. Through these loans, you will get all the money you need with fewer expenses in terms of financing because these loans charge lower rates than credit cards and store cards. Thus, there is no excuse, go ahead and prepare that fantastic baby shower that everyone will remember.
