A baby shower is a time to celebrate new life and welcome new beginnings. A small shower with close family and friends will create a fun, happy and intimate afternoon, enjoying good company before those sleepless nights. To make sure the afternoon is unique to any other shower, follow these steps:
1. The Date
Setting the date can be difficult as the question of ‘When is too early?’ often arises. Usually the shower is held in the last 2 months of pregnancy but there have been some parents that like to have the baby as the guest of honour. The date will depend on whether the parents-to-be are after a pre or post-baby shower.
Not everyone has Facebook and phone calls tend to be forgotten. Formal paper invitations are the way to go, as the invited guest can stick it on their fridge where it can be seen. Create attractive invites by adding scrapbook pieces and material to the card. It is recommended to send invitations out with at least three week’s notice.
