Step 5: Buy food
Decide whether a whole meal or only finger foods will be served at the baby shower. If you decide on the latter, consider cheese and crackers, chips and dip, salad, cut up fruit, muffins, and veggies and dip. Also serve water with punch or lemon. Always remember to purchase food for twice as many people actually coming to the baby shower, as some does not RSVP but still pitch up.
Step 6: Take pictures
Any baby shower would not be complete without taking pictures. Take pictures of the expectant mother socializing with all the guests. A good idea is to put disposable cameras at strategic tables for guests to take pictures throughout the baby shower.
Step 7: Play games
Play games for a certain period of the baby shower. Provide simple prizes, like lotions or candles.
Step 8: Serve up ice cream and cake, and also open gifts
While everyone is eating ice cream and cake, let the expectant mother open all the gifts. Write down what gifts were given and by whom. Let someone hand the expectant mother her gifts, while another person takes the opened gifts from her. The expectant mother should also be already provided with thank you cards to give to those who showered her with gifts.
Step 9: Have fun
Planning a baby shower is hard work; thus ensure you take some time to enjoy the food, guests, and just have some fun at the baby shower. When people start to leave, thank them for attending the baby shower.
