Oh Baby! Guide to Hosting the Cutest Baby Shower
Posted by Genesis Samson on 04/19/16
Flutter FETTI knows how to bring excitement and joy to any occasion. Getting ready to welcome a new bouncing baby bundle of joy is definitely a cause for celebration! Whether you’re throwing a traditional shower or a gender reveal party (try incorporating this with your baby shower for a real surprise element!), the Team at Flutter FETTI has put together essential baby shower advice on how to shower the parents to be in style!
Ready to Pop!
Guests can have fun with their food at a “Ready to Pop” themed popcorn station! Kick traditional popcorn up a notch by offering guests a variety of tasty flavors in everything from sweet cinnamon & sugar, peanut butter, and s’mores to savory browned butter rosemary and chili lime. Decorate your popcorn station with large containers of flavored popcorn that friends can scoop into their own personal popcorn boxes.
Babies certainly go through a lot of diapers! Diaper Raffle cards are a creatively cheeky way to help the parents to be in the diaper department. Insert the raffle card along with your shower invitation. Have guests turn in their completed raffle tickets along with their diaper pack. Before the shower ends, mix up the cards and pull the winning guest name. The prize can be anything from a lovely scented candle, assorted chocolates, or a gift card to your local coffee shop.
Advice for the Parents to Be and Wishes for Baby
Achieving the perfect swaddle. Bath time basics. Diaper do’s and don’ts. Everyone will have sage advice to share with the new mommy or daddy. Another heartwarming shower highlight is “Wishes for Baby”. Both of these notecards will be cherished keepsakes. Hand out the cards along with pens/pencils as guests arrive or have the cards at each place setting. Set up a basket to collect the cards as guests leave.
Favors are oh so fun! They’re a great way to end the party with a pop. Set up a favor station with champagne (pink for baby girl!) and sparkling cider along with a decorative paper straw. A neat tie in to the bit of bubby is to cover a full sized champagne bottle with cardstock (scrapbook paper from your local craft store works well) and have guests sign the bottle with a permanent marker. When baby arrives, the parents to be can toast their little one and keep the signed bottle as a special memento.
