How to throw the perfect baby shower!

Fusion Boutique Hotel Baby Shower

Baby showers are a time-honoured tradition where friends and family come together to celebrate the arrival of a new baby. If you are awarded the task to plan a baby shower, we have some great tips for you.  Here are 5 tips on how you can ensure you throw the baby shower of the year!

  1. Date and Time

When you have the baby shower will determine how much time you need to plan.  We suggest you plan at least 10 weeks ahead. This will allow guests to have time to buy gifts, prepare for the etiquette and arrange their travels.

  1. Determine the Budget

Think about how much you want to spend for the venue, invitations, decorations, food, activities, and favours as this is going to determine everything you do.

  1. Games and activities

It’s always a good idea to have some fun and keep guests entertained when hosting a baby shower. There are many hilarious games such as baby food tasting that you can choose from. Memories last long after the celebration so make sure to include a few ridiculous games and laugh a little.

  1. Food and Drinks

Food and drinks are super important when it comes to planning and is a critical part of the success of your shower. You do not want to run out of food, and you want to keep the drinks flowing. Plan your menu properly and keep your guests in mind!

  1. Gifts

Make it easy for your guests by creating a baby registry. It’s a win win situation, you take off the pressure of decision making for your guests, and you get exactly what you want however, leave room for more gifts by having a gift station at the baby shower.

Alternatively, my most helpful tip would be for you to leave all the planning to a professional, so you do not have to worry about all the details. When you host your baby shower at Fusion Boutique Hotel you have the luxury of having an events coordinator with years of experience and thousands of baby showers under her belt.  She can help you every step of the way.

Venues are one of the most critical aspects of the planning process. Fusion Boutique Hotel is not only the most beautiful and intimate venue – that require minimum décor expenses to host a baby shower in Polokwane but when you host with us, we also provide you with FRIENDORS which are a list of trusted vendors dedicated to making your event opulent and well thought out saving you lots of time and money.
