Find an event space or a venue that fits your client’s requirements. Start planning for the venue three to six months in advance especially if you want to host it in a popular event space or venue. When looking for an event space or a venue, know the number of attendees. That is why it is critical to have the final list of guests first. There are many event spaces or venues to choose from, like botanical garden, hotel, park, restaurant, spa, or tea room. Check the whole place before booking it, though.
Select a Theme
There are limitless baby shower ideas you can factor in. But be sure that it highly reflects the client’s personal interest. It can be a garden-themed baby shower, moustache-themed baby shower, nautical-themed baby shower, rustic-themed baby shower, woodland-themed baby shower, and the list goes on.
Prizes for Games
A baby shower party is not and will never be complete without games. Pick prizes that are useful. It can be eco-friendly tote bags, food baskets, personalized notebooks and pens, or USB wallets.
Food and Beverages
