Baby Shower Basics: Start your Planning with these Important Details

Throwing a baby shower is an exciting milestone as you prepare for the arrival of your little one. As you start to plan, there are a few key details to keep in mind that will help make the shower fun for your guests and easy for you! Personalize, customize, and really make your baby shower your own, but here’s where to start:

Pick your theme and color palette
Your theme sets the mood for the entire baby shower. By starting with the theme and color palette, you have a north star to guide you through the entire planning process. When you commit to a theme early, you also allow yourself the opportunity to ensure that all parts of your shower, from the invitations to the decor to the favors, tie into the theme. Not only will this give your shower a cohesive feel, but it will make it feel even more festive for you and your guests!

Create a registry early
When you’re making room in your home for a baby, the last thing you need is more clutter in your home. By creating a registry early, you are able to add it to your invitation and give your guests time to purchase the gifts you really want and need. Reach out to friends and family members with children to find out about their must-have items.

Put thought into your invitation
Whether you opt for printed or paperless, your invitation will be the first touchpoint with your guests. Introduce them to the theme of your shower, share a link to your registry, and, of course, share the important details of the special day. If you have a unique request of guests (i.e. asking everyone to come prepared with words of advice for the new parents, etc.), this is also a great place to share that.
