If you are in your twenties or thirties, chances are you’ve been to a quite a few baby showers that all feature the same old themes and colours for the baby shower invite, and blah party ideas. Now, you’ve been charged with throwing your bestie or a female relation a truly unique baby shower, which needs a special baby shower invitation. Here’s one theme that encourages creativity: a baby mobile-inspired baby shower!
First Things First: Baby Shower Invitations
When picking out your baby shower invites, aligning them with the theme of the party is key. Choosing a baby shower invitation that features a baby mobile is the easy part, but choosing the kind of baby mobile sets the stage for your whole party! For instance, will your baby shower invitations feature mobiles with animals? One animal? Two? Three? What kind of animal will you prefer? Elephants, cats, or dogs? Birds, bees, or butterflies? Or will you prefer celestial bodies such as stars, moons, or planets? The choices for baby shower invitations are truly limitless, but what you choose for your baby shower invites captures the entire feel of the celebration.
Task Two: Games
When you’ve picked out your baby shower invite, the next step is thinking up fun activities that relate to the pace you’ve set with your baby shower invitation. One idea is to make part of the party an “arts and crafts” time, where everyone can make their own baby mobiles for the little one to slumber under. Set out markers, paints, crayons, string, twine, old hangers, and colourful papers, so that everyone can create a unique baby mobile!
Take Three: Food
One of the most fun elements of any baby shower is planning out the food. Of course, you will want to have a mixture of savoury and sweet. When planning your party, you can create sturdy baby mobiles with little trays that feature mini-cupcakes for a unique presentation. Or even use that idea to offer an assortment of savoury nuts and nibbles. Or if you have run out of ideas for food, assemble a DIY baby mobile and simply hang pre-packaged chocolate for a delectable baby mobile that everyone will want to emulate!
As you can see, creativity is key when conjuring up ideas for all aspects of your celebration, from baby shower invitations to great games and yummy food to keep the fun flowing throughout!
