Baby Shower Planning: Choosing A Perfect Party Theme
As a sincere gesture for one of your closest friends, you’ve decided to throw an intimate baby shower party for her. You know that it’s something she’ll appreciate. You start planning — you know which people to invite, what games to play and where to have the event. Even so, you feel as if there’s something missing, and the party you’re organizing feels a bit bland. If this is how you feel, maybe you still don’t have a party theme. Remember, a theme not only brightens up the whole event, but also makes it more special.
With numerous party themes available, party planners don’t have a difficult time finding one that’ll suit the mom-to-be’s preference. Even so, some find this task challenging. Choosing a theme for a baby shower can be a bit confusing, especially if it’s their first time planning a baby shower.
When choosing a theme for a baby shower, there are several important considerations you have to keep in mind:
- Consider your budget - Think about how much money you’re willing to spend for the event. Will it suffice for the theme you have in mind or do you think you’d go bankrupt if you push through with it? You can’t pick an extravagant theme if you don’t have enough cash, right? Settle on a theme that you know will fit your taste and your budget. (Tips on how to create a budget)
- Think about your resources- One factor that helps people decide on a theme is the available resources they can use. It helps them spend less, but still get what theme they want. For example, unless you’ve got enough stuffed toys to decorate the place, you can’t settle on a stuffed toy theme. Otherwise, you’ll have to spend a lot of money on the party decorations.
- The mom-to-be’s decision counts- After all, the party is going to be held for her. Consult her regarding what themes you have in mind, and let her choose the one she likes best. She can also give you helpful suggestions on how the theme would be more successful. If the party’s a surprise for her, you can consult someone close to her, such as her husband, her sister or her mom.
- Remember the guests- Since you already know who’s coming to the celebration, you can choose a theme that you know they will like and can relate to. For example, a pink baby shower might not be a good idea if you’ve invited men. Make sure the theme will be appropriate for everyone, so they’ll have a great time.
Choosing a theme is something you should carefully think of when you’re preparing for a baby shower. It’ll definitely determine the success or failure of this celebration. Once you’ve found the perfect theme, you can now proceed with the other aspects of your baby shower! For more information, read Baby Shower Ideas.
