If the weather is right, then an outdoor baby shower can be a unique way to celebrate the new life that is on the way; and a springtime shower is doubly so. Everything from the invitations to the party favors can proclaim the beauty of nature, such as using ladybug baby shower invites. There are a few things to think about while you prepare the shower, so here is a look at weather preparation.
One of the most important parts of planning an outdoor baby shower is making sure nothing blows away in the wind. For light-weight decorative items, make sure you have some way to fasten them or tie them down to something heavy enough to withstand windy days. The wind can also be your ally in decorating with fun streamers and balloons that can sway in the breeze.
Preparing for worse weather is also a priority. Have a backup location in mind if the wind is just too strong or there is heavy rain. Whether indoors or out, make your party favors match your nature theme with customized gift tags.
Once your weather preparations are done, it's time to decide if there will be snacks and what kind. Unless you are hiring a professional caterer to see to all the details, try to pick only those foods which won't spoil when left outside for a few hours. If it's outside at a home, why not try a barbeque?
Outdoor baby showers are a great way to celebrate the wonderful power of nature and the creation of new life. While it does mean there's some extra planning to do, the pictures you will have later to show for it make it all worthwhile. Why not present the mother-to-be with a photo album sometime later of the party and any other memorable pictures throughout the pregnancy?
"I am so happy and pleased with the way my baby shower invitations turned out. It was simple yet I was able to use their format to customize the invite to my preference. I highly recommend tiny prints. I was weary in the beginning because I have never used them before, but now I will continue to use them for all my invitation and card needs."
"THE INVITATIONS WERE VERY CUTE. MY DAUGHTER, THE MOTHER TO BE, HAD A NICKNAME GROWING UP OF "LADYBUG" SO THIS WAS THE PERFECT CARD FOR THE BABY SHOWER. MY LADYBUG IS HAVING A LITTLE LADYBUG."
"My husband and I planned a fun and exciting baby shower for our second child, who is due this NOVEMBER. I was looking for a special kind of invitation to go with our theme, Gender Reveal. The card I found on Tiny Prints was spot on with its design. It matches our decor to a T!!! I was elated. Our shower is being hosted by my sister and all invites have been mailed. Everyone of our closest family and friends have only the best of compliments about the design of the invitation! We couldn't have made it better ourselves, absolutely AWESOME!"
"This was perfect for my daughter's baby shower. It was classy and a little girly just like we wanted. We are very happy with the results."
