Baby Shower Invitation Messages For Boy - Baby showers are a classic tradition and a much-anticipated section of an expectant mother's first pregnancy. Unsurprisingly, the average baby shower hostess feels a measure of stress in regards to planning this long-awaited party, and when it's her foray into the baby shower area, the task can quickly become an overwhelming one. However, planning a baby shower need not be a source of apprehension, and utilizing this very simple beginner's guide, even the most inexperienced hostess could throw a pleasant and memorable baby shower.
The first order of business would be to specify a date for the baby shower. The ideal time to schedule the shower is when the expectant mom is 32 to 34 weeks pregnant, and you should allow yourself approximately 6 months of preparation time before the party. Once the date is decided on, request the mom-to-be to supply you with a list of addresses and names. This is your guest list.
The next issue to think about is decorations. Allow the nature and manner of the expectant mom are the starting spot for the direction you will take with all the baby shower. Is she super sour, or is she the no-frills type? Resist the temptation to plan the party according to your personal taste rather than the guest of honors. You might want to opt for a theme for the shower, but remember that this is not an essential element and might even complicate things unnecessarily.
Now's the time to choose the menu too. Finger foods are appropriate for almost every baby shower. A tray of veggies with dip, cheese slices with crackers, cold cuts, " finger veggies" (berries, grapes, etc.) or fruit salad, muffins, and pinch could make for a gorgeous spread of meals. If you have a little more time plus a flair for the culinary arts, you can add a bowl of homemade pasta salad, or perhaps some mini quiches (from the freezer department, just heat and serve) to this list.
