Are you welcoming the arrival of a new baby? It certainly is one of the happiest events of anyone’s life. If you want the months leading up to the birth to be just as fun, you got to make sure you do things the right way. Wait, you are throwing a baby shower for a family member or close friend? Don’t worry. You will find this post useful as well. Here are some pointers to keep in mind to make the special occasion a smashing success! Let’s start by looking at the benefits of using fresh flowers:
Display Beautiful Blooms
Ordering quality, fresh flowers online is a stellar way to bring a subtle symbolic meaning and a phenomenal look to the day. Filling the hosting area, whether it be an outdoor space (e.g. a park), somebody else’s place, or your home, with lush floral centrepieces brings and adds brightness to a day that’s already bursting with cheer. Flowers represent new beginnings, which is what the birth of a child is! Here are some pro tips to remember:
- Although you are using fresh flower bouquets during the party, encourage your guests to bring a single flower stem. When the baby shower has ended, collect the flowers, have them preserved or dried old-school style. Use these flowers in your baby book!
- You can present each guest with a rose boutonniere. Rose petals will make this version of the “Can’t say baby” game even more fun.
- Place a new baby flower arrangement on a pedestal. Put it somewhere in the middle of your food table or gift table.
- Use a mix of roses and tulips to add uniqueness and colour to your gift table.
Arrange Ample Seating
You will want to make sure that there is ample seating for your guests. If you are taking the traditional route of having everyone at the baby shower watch the mum-to-be open every gift. This is an important step to take. Start getting cushions and seat backs for guests of all ages, sizes, and shapes!
Avoid Creating “Hangry” Guests
Ensure that there is sufficient food for everyone present at the baby shower. While you do not have to prepare a seven course meal, try to offer something more than just sweets, crackers, cheese, and fruit cordial. A pot fill of soup or some nice small sandwiches can go a long way in keeping everybody smiling throughout the event.
“Open Up” Your Baby Shower to Everyone
Today, baby showers are no longer afternoon gatherings for ladies. While these gatherings can be tremendously fun in their own right, the organizer should include men and children as well. However, it is easier to see what the mum-to-be prefers. Just keep in mind that, sometimes, having everybody around to share the joy can be the most fun.
Remember, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to hosting a baby shower. Your guest of honour should feel free to arrange the event as they like.
