One of the most beautiful experiences life can offer is witnessing the glow of a mother to be. Her smile is unparalleled, and you can’t help but to marvel at the joy that has become her. After years of planning, Posh believes that every expecting mother deserves a baby shower that is unique and executed with care. The following are tips that can help you produce the perfect celebration for your bundle(s) of joy.
Hire a Planner
It is understood that even though pregnancy is a joyous time, it can also be overwhelming. With so much to arrange and secure before the birth of your child(ren), hiring a planner can deliver your dream shower without unnecessary hassle. This person will communicate with vendors and execute every detail with diligence. This decision will ultimately spare you valuable time and energy that could be devoted towards nesting your nursery and home.
Select a Theme and or Color Scheme
Before your planner can work their magic, you have to choose a theme. Whether you decide pink and glitter galore or that popular cartoon, be true to yourself! Your vision will act as a guide while customizing your decorations and favors. It is the planner's job to merely enhance or transform that vision to much more. This one decision can get you one step closer to a shower that you will be proud of for years to come.
Coordinate your attire with your vision
You are the star of the baby shower! Yes, exquisite decorations, favors and environment are important. However, you are the reason why your closest family and friends will attend. Make them marvel at you just as much as they will marvel at the décor. One sure way to do this, is to coordinate with your theme/vision. For example if your theme is royalty, you might wear a nice gown or dress. Even if you don't splurge very often, this is an opportunity to get pampered. Most families enjoy making t-shirts and other attire to really identify your village of helpers for the upcoming arrival. Remember, when you look good, you feel good!
Have a Gift Registry
Shopping for a new baby is a noble task. Thanks to innovation, there are so many options to choose from. To avoid making things complicated for yourself and baby shower guests, create a gift registry. First, research what brands, products and items you would want for your child. Then, determine what you would like for others to purchase. Compile a list of a variety of items within multiple price brackets. With the new digital age, shopping can be made simple with online registries with sites like Amazon.com that allow your gift to be shipped right to your front door. Overall, this will help give guests insight on what to buy, how to get it to you if they cannot attend, and make their shopping experience less daunting.
Enjoy the Moment!
When all is said and done, and the day of the baby shower arrives, take a deep breath. Enter the venue with your head held high and embrace this special moment. Take the time to greet your guests, take loads of pictures and create sentimental memories.
