Plan to hold the shower when your guest of honour is around seven months pregnant when the baby’s arrival is still a few weeks away and she is still feeling comfortable enough to enjoy the occasion.
A theme can really set the scene. In terms of colour there’s always the traditional blue for a boy and pink for a girl but bear in mind that today’s mum might prefer something non-gender-specific.
Gifts are a traditional part of a baby shower and are often expected. The central idea, though, is that attendance is appreciated more than a gift.
Dress up! It’s a special time so go all out and celebrate. Pretty dresses, heels, fascinators or hats help to make the occasion and make everyone feel extra special.
