For a woman expecting her first child, arriving of her little one is one of the biggest events in her life. If your friend or relative is expecting, we’d love to remind you that a baby shower is a great way to help an expected mother to get ready for this exciting day. Here are some of our best tips to ensure your baby shower is not only fun but is also a truly unique event.
Pick a Theme
Having a theme is a great way to make sure your party look is cohesive while making it still fun. A great tip is to coincide the topic of the shower with a theme of the new baby’s room if the parents-to-be have picked it out yet. You can throw a Dr. Seuss themed shower, and the new parents can use some of the décors of the party for their new baby’s room. This also might be an excellent way to make keepsakes.
Ask the Mom-to-Be
Many people will throw a shower without ever consulting the guest of honor. Ask her if she prefers an afternoon shower or a late morning shower and if she would like to do any activities or games. Putting a shower based on the Mom-to-be’s likes is a great way to make her feel special. This day is about her! Once the baby arrives mom won’t have the time to think much about herself – her world will start revolving around her bundle of joy.
Any expected mother has a wish list. I remember putting a lot of thought into all my baby registry gadgets – I researched the cribs, strollers, car seat – you name it. However, while shopping for the latest baby monitor, do not forget about the essentials – things like diapers and wipes.
Did you know that newborn babies’ skin is five times thinner than the skin of adults? My now eight months old had a very sensitive skin when we first brought him home and those first weeks I realized that there is a difference between an average wipe and a WaterWipe that I happened to have a pack of.
This is what an average Wipes label might look like:
Water, Potassium Laureth Phosphate, Glycerin, Polysorbate 20, Tetrasodium EDTA, Methylparaben, Malic Acid, Methylisothiazolinone, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Tocopheryl Acetate
Here is a list of the Ingredients for the Waterwipes – these are chemical free, and I can pronounce every ingredient:
99.9% water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract (dried grapefruit seed/pulp, vegetable glycerin, and ascorbic acid.)
And here is the funny thing about things wipes – kids don’t grow out of them. Even if you buy $100 worth of wipes, you know the new mom will use every single one of them.
The Perfect Venue
While throwing a shower in your home is excellent and perfectly intimate, you may want to consider throwing the shower at a restaurant or another place such as the park or even a coffee shop. You don’t have to have the stress of making sure your home is spotlessly clean and worry about the clean up after. Many places will already have some outstanding catering options taking this task off your shoulders.
I am a WaterWipes Mom
A WaterWipes Mom wants the very best for her little one. She knows the rewards and challenges of being a Mom and is chemically-conscious when it comes to the products she chooses for her family.
Keep It Organized
It’s crucial to keep track of tasks, especially if more than one person is helping to plan the event. Keep the dates and tasks all in an organized binder and maintain a list of all the vendor’s phone numbers and addresses as well as the guest list and their address. You can give the binder to the mom-to-be as a keepsake or to make it easy for her to send thank you cards.
Optional Games and Activities
Having games and activities optional is a great way to make sure that all guests feel comfortable while letting them choose which activities or games they would like to do. You can set up a craft area where guests can show off their artistic ability by either decorating a wooden block or customizing a onesie for a new baby. Another station might have a choice of games to offer – Baby Shower Bingo, guessing the Mom-to-Be’s due date, etc.
