With so many baby shower party themes you can found online, you might get overwhelmed in choosing what’s best for you. Asking friends and colleagues for ideas will not make it easier either, as they also have their own preferences. To avoid this predicament, shortlist your choices by taking into consideration the following factors:
- the budget for the party
- the gender of the baby
- the season or the weather during the party
- the time of the day that is best for the mother-to-be to entertain guests
- the beliefs, tradition, or culture of the parents-to-be
Throwing a baby shower party for a mom-to-be has been a common tradition in the US. Yet, it is not just a Western tradition – other countries celebrate it too, including India, China, and more.
Event planner, Events by Collette was approached to organize a girl baby shower party for an Indian family. The event was held in the afternoon at the expecting mother’s home.
The baby shower party was setup in the veranda overlooking the garden. Wooden tables and stools were placed under large beach umbrellas to protect the guests from the sun.
For centerpieces, white paper lanterns were placed in the table with real flower cuttings. Then small milk bottles, baby pacifiers, and diaper pins in pink hues were scattered around the lantern. For an added touch, they sprinkled pink and white confetti on the top of the tables.
Events by Collette, hang a pink elephant baby shower banner over a decorated wooden table propped against a dark blue wall as backdrop.
A vase of white lilies was placed behind a white two-tiered fondant cake set atop a red-mantled table. The baby shower cake was adorned with gorgeous red flower icing and then, topped with a sleeping baby wearing a pink polka dot diaper and pink hat.
For baby shower party favors, Events by Collette put pink decorative stones inside mini glass vases. Then white lollies tied with white ribbons were placed inside each vase, and for the finishing touch, pink ribbons were also tied around the vases. Since the event is for an Indian family, Buddha cookies were also given as favors in the party.
In the living room, a milk bottle filled with plastic babies was placed on the coffee table for the guessing game. A pink paper bag decorated with pink pearls served as ornament together with the vase of tulips. Each guest that came in tried to guess the number of plastic babies inside the bottle to win the prize.
In addition to the guessing game, dolls and cabbage patch kids were set on a table in the lawn for the diaper change relay race.
