3 Steps to Plan a Successful Baby Shower

When more than 130 million babies are born each year, planning an event to remember is harder than it looks. In fact, almost 360,000 babies are born in the U.S. every year alone. While you might get "showered" with gifts by the end of your event, there are a lot of tasks to complete to put on a successful event.

You don't want poor planning to rain on your parade. But creating a stand-out event is essential.  If you're one of the many people planning a baby shower, here are some preparations to complete for a rewarding shower.

Finalize your guest list

Your guest list determines a number of important aspects of your baby shower. This includes the size of the venue, the number of seats to rent, and the amount of food you need to buy.

It's recommended that you send out event invitations between six months in advance. This can be hard to do depending on when you find out that you're pregnant. Most parents hold their baby shower in their third trimester. But it's always best to give your guests as much time as possible. That way, your guests have ample time to respond to your event and make room for this special occasion in their calendars.

Get great decorations

Decorations will help set the mood for your party. This means you have to invest in streamers, table cloths, and great serving dishes. Buying premium ice cream cups for the event will create a regal feeling even if you're just eating candy out of custom ice cream products. Choose decorations that align with your baby's gender or make it a pattern-filled celebration of new life.

Choose delicious food

The highlight of your event is the delicious food. Keep in mind that each guest will eat about six appetizers to start. That's why you should serve three courses with an emphasis on fun, including color-changing dessert spoons. One guest should get at least 5oz of ice cream for dessert.
