Crafting a Personalized Baby Shower

We all love a good party, but there’s something particularly exciting about a shower. It means one of life’s incredibly happy milestones – a wedding or a new baby – is on the horizon. So if you’re planning a baby shower for yourself, friend, or family member, we have some great tips to help you craft a very special, personalized fete.

After making your invitation list, the next step is to pick a theme and/or color scheme. If you don’t already know what you want the look of the shower to be like, turn to Pinterest, Instagram, or at a resource for some of your favorite personalized items, like Shutterfly or Petite Lemon, for inspiration.

Personalized Baby Shower Gifts

Start the shower off in style well before the party itself by choosing a personalized invitation that utilizes the shower theme and/or color. Consider using a sonogram image to really customize the invitation. This can create a pre-shower guessing game if the baby’s gender hasn’t been announced yet or is unknown, which will build further excitement for the party.

Again, keep the party’s theme in mind when making the menu and deciding on decorations. And whether the shower will be simple or completely over the top, you can’t go wrong with a fabulous dessert table. Having one place for décor, drinks, sweets, and themed plates, cups, etc creates a functional and decorative focal point to the party so the rest of the attention can be placed on the guest of honor.

Personalized Baby Shower Invites

And what’s a baby shower without gifts? Personalized gifts like onesies, growth charts and photo albums/baby books make ideal gifts that are useful, as well as ones to be cherished for years to come.

Finally, don’t forget the Thank You cards, which should be sent out within three months after the shower. You can find many Shutterfly styles that match or coordinate with your baby shower invitation.
