First of all take a deep breath! Anyone can plan and host a successful baby shower event. After you take the deep breath, decide on when, where, how many invited guests, what the theme will be, and finally a menu for the party. Then, make sure that you have planned the event and selected and sent out the baby shower invitations at least three weeks before the festivities if you are hosting it on a weekday. If you plan to have a couples’ shower during the weekend, plan on sending out the invitations a month in advance.
Don’t forget to choose the menu that will show your mom and dad-to-be how much you care about them. Select items that support good nutrition as well as offer their favorite foods!
