Is your sister, best friend, or daughter pregnant? Well, the first thing you must do is to accompany her to an ultrasound baby scan clinic and keep an eye on her health. The second thing is to organize a baby shower. There are so many ways to organize a baby shower. But if you have a limited budget and yet you want to throw her the best baby shower, then here are some tips.
The location alone can take up a lots of money whether it’s in a club or a restaurant. So, best way to save money. Do it in your home or one of your other friend’s home. You can also do it in your beautifully decorated backyard giving a nature feel to it. But make sure that there is no possibility of rain and the to-be-mother wouldn’t mind an outdoor party.
Inviting people have become very easy nowadays. No need to go for fancy stuff like handmade invitations. Craft a beautifully worded invitation via email where they can easily RSVP online only. The guests will appreciate that more.
Keep it simple and sweet. You can definitely flower but if you think balloons will be too childish you can skip it. But whatever you buy for decorations buy them in bulk. Find out the warehouse prices and buy them online. For the flowers you can head to the local farmer’s market. As for cutlery and furniture you can set up things from your home or find a rental shop.
Food And Drink
Cook yourself. There is no need arrange any kind of lunch and dinner. All you will need is some drinks and snacks. First you need to decide if there will be alcoholic drinks or everything would be non-alcoholic. If you decide on non-alcoholic then your spending will be reduced automatically. You can make some flavored mocktails. You can also buy bottles of cold drinks. If you buy them in bulk, you will probably get some offers and discounts. As for snacks make some finger sandwiches which is easy to make even if you don’t know how to cook. Other than finger sandwiches arrange a spread with cheese, crackers, and fruits. No need to hire any caterers or servers. Buffet system is the easiest and best food serving system.
Cake Or Dessert
After everything is done the only thing left is cake or desert. You can either arrange for a cake that can be cut during the shower or you can either arrange for cupcakes, pudding, or macaroons. Again you do not have to buy anything. If you are good at baking, then your problem is solved. See if you can find someone in the family who is good at baking. Homemade dessert is not only tastier but also has a more personal feel to it.
All these five things will more or less set everything for the baby shower. The only thing you will need is a gift for the mother-to-be. A great idea is to accompany her to the ultrasound baby scan clinic, get a copy of the photo of the scan and get it framed.
