Frog Themed Baby Shower Invitations - Baby showers are a classic tradition and a much-anticipated section of an expectant mother's first pregnancy. Not surprisingly, the normal baby shower hostess feels a measure of stress in regards to planning this long-awaited party, and when it's her foray to the baby shower space, the task can quickly become an overwhelming one. But planning a baby shower need not be a source of jealousy, and using this very simple beginner's guide, even the most inexperienced kid can throw a fun-filled and memorable baby shower.
The first order of business is to set a date to the baby shower. The ideal time to schedule that the shower is when the expectant mother is 32 to 34 weeks pregnant, and you must allow yourself about 6 weeks of planning time before the party. Once the date is determined on, request the mom-to-be to supply you with a listing of names and addresses. This is the guest list. Prepare the invitations and send them out about 4 weeks before the date of this party.
The next issue to consider is decorations. Allow the personality and manner of the expectant mother are the starting spot for the direction you will take with the baby shower. Is she outgoing and bubbly, or is her personality more understated? Resist the desire to plan the party according to your personal taste as opposed to the guest of honors. You may wish to choose a theme for the shower, but remember that this isn't an important element and may even complicate things unnecessarily.
Now is the time to decide on the menu too. Finger foods are appropriate for virtually every baby shower. If you have a little more time plus a flair to the culinary arts, then you can add a bowl of homemade pasta salad, or even some miniature quiches (from the freezer department, simply heat and serve) for this listing.
