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?
"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."
"I was very pleased with the quality of the card stock, the printing and the on time delivery of my invitations . I also found the website easy to use . This card is perfect for a baby shower that will be given in Dana Point , California ( the Whale sighting capital of the West )"
"I asked customer service to have the same fonts as the example. They were very prompt. The paper quality is thicker than I imagined which made me happy. When the guest opens the envelope they see the rocking horse first. I plan on ordering matching thank you cards."
"Great quality, adorable soft/sweet invitation for a baby shower. I got great feedback from so many who received this invite from me."
"Item selection was easy. The actual product looks exactly like the proof. Delivery was on time and exactly what I ordered. I'm glad I ordered extra envelopes they came in handy when I spelled names wrong. I would order again for another event."
