Give your Baby Shower a Modern Makeover!
Most people's idea of a traditional baby shower involves a gaggle of girls playing silly games and eating dainty cucumber sandwiches. But the days of floral tablecloths and clichéd tea parties are over! It's high time to revolutionize baby showers with a sleek modern makeover.
Gone are the days of pastel baby shower invitations, doilies and paper streamers. Today's baby showers call for chic baby shower invitations and stylish décor instead. Party planners traditionally insist that it isn't an "event" without a proper baby shower invitation, but these days it isn't even an "event" without an absolutely gorgeous baby shower invitation to establish the tone of the entire affair! To make sure your baby shower invitations are up to par, seek out online stationery shops that specialize in personalized invitations. That way, whether you choose a baby shower invitation design that's pretty and sweet or sleek and modern, your baby shower invitations will look posh and polished. And, remember—modern baby showers aren't just limited to the ladies, so make sure you choose a baby shower invitation that will entice your gentlemen guests as well!
The next step involved in modernizing your baby shower is to find stylish decorations that extend beyond the traditional storks and clothespins. Consider placing flowers in the party's theme colors (which can be drawn from the baby shower invitation for an extra refined look) throughout the party environment. And you don't have to stick to pastels, either—even if you choose a baby shower invitation in baby boy blue, you can give the color an extra punch with bright blue glass bottles as vases for bright white flowers, or by using bold, jewel toned blue and green plates, cups and glasses.
Lastly, forget the tired old games. Do NOT ask guests to guess the mom-to-be's tummy size or how many safety pins you can fit inside of a baby bottle. Instead, have your guests each bring a baby photo and make a game out of guess who each chubby little baby grew up to be. Or, go bottle bowling by setting up bottles like bowling pins and then trying to knock them over with a tennis ball.
There's no reason a baby shower has to be dull. Spice up your baby shower invitations, decorations and games with these fun tips, and the mom-to-be and all her friends will have even more reason to celebrate!
