Who doesn’t love a baby shower?! The excitement of the gender, the adorable gifts, and of course the overwhelming joy of the mom-to-be!

Baby shower hosted at The Lodge at The Willows in Indianapolis


But there are many things that go into planning the perfect baby shower – the location, theme, guest list, food, etc. Here are a few tips to consider:

Location –

Baby showers can be held at someone’s home, a restaurant, or an event center!

Theme –

The theme could either be gender-specific or not! Some examples of adorable themes include:

Invitations –

Once you have the theme chosen (and the guest list), order invitations! Try to provide as much info as you can without being too wordy.

Party Favors –

Party favors are a fun way to thank guests for attending. Martha Stewart has some cute ideas.

Activities -

Decorate a onesie – Provide a white onesie for each guests as well as iron-on transfers to choose from. Guests can choose their favorite and make it themselves!
