Easy Baby Shower Menu - Many people start out looking for inexpensive baby shower favors because they have the misconception that all baby shower favors not handmade are costly. I simply hate the term "cheap" because it seems like the person hosting the baby shower isn't enjoying it one bit and they do not want to spend 1 penny more than needed on the baby shower. I know from experience in working with the party planners that isn't the case but that sticking to a budget is a concern so how about we rephrase our term to affordable baby shower favor ideas or inexpensive baby shower favor ideas.
I believe after weddings, baby showers would be my most favorite event to attend. If you're the one hosting your baby shower and also therefore are a bit stumped about what baby shower favors to give your visitors, let's do some brainstorming together.
It seems like such a cliché but in case you already know the gender of the infant, then you can narrow down your favorite choices to pink or blue. If you're fortunate enough to have enough time to put the baby shower favors together, then the easiest way to start is to buy blue or pink favor boxes or favor bags with matching the ribbon. Candies like jelly beans are almost always pleasant fillers for your boxes along with nuts or mints.
If you've chosen a favor purse, then you've got a bit more options. One of my favorite baby shower favors was a pink organza bag filled with potpourri. I tossed it into my lingerie drawer once I went home along with the scent lingered for many months following the shower - lovely reminder of a fun afternoon. A few more thoughts for filling the favor bag are bath crystals, hot cocoa mix (for showers in the winter), or wildflower seeds for spring showers.
