Couples Baby Shower
Shower the Expectant Couple in Your Home
Planning an At Home Co-ed Couples Shower is great fun and both the Mommy-to-Be and the future Daddy will be thrilled to share the celebration! We love at home parties, they are warm and fuzzy and let everyone relax and enjoy the event. The future mom will appreciate an at home party too, because she’ll love to put her feet up!
Start with a fun invitation or make your own, but be sure to include both names on the invitation so everyone will know that it’s a couples shower. If you are making your own invitation, use wording like: “A Shower Celebration for Alison and Andrew” and be sure to address your invitations to both members of the couple. Immediate family of the mom and dad, should also be included in the guest list. If mom is registered, be sure to put the name of the store on the invitation. You can also include a link to our site, for comparison shopping. The link to include is: http://www.ForBrideandBaby.com.
Choosing a Baby Shower Theme
Take a look at the registry to see if you can come up with a theme based on items that the couple registered for. Perhaps the couple has registered for crib sheets that have an animal theme or an alphabet theme. Maybe they have registered for lots of nursery organizers or lots of travel accessories. Take your clues from the couples “wish list” and start being creative! We can help! Our partner stores are filled with baby shower partyware and decorations.
For Bride and Baby Tip:
Here another of our favorite ideas. Choose a Moses basket as your host and hostess gift and have you guests fill it with gifts! It makes a great decoration and a wonderful conversation piece!
Setting the Table and Serving the Meal
When planning your Baby Shower, consider whether you want to plan a cocktail party, buffet, barbecue or sit down dinner. This decision depends on how hard you want to work and on your budget. Use fun party paper goods to save yourself clean up duties and decorate to match your theme and color scheme.
