Tips for a beautiful baby shower

We all love reasons to celebrate – and one of the happiest of reasons to celebrate is a baby shower!

With our landscape looking a little different this year, we want to offer some simple tips for planning a safe but beautiful baby shower.

The Invite List

Your invite list may not be quite as extensive as it usually is, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still arrange for everyone that wants to take part, to do so! Inviting close family members and friends in small numbers can work while extending a virtual invite for anyone else that would like to “pop in” to the party that day!

Choose Your Theme

After you’ve selected your date and time, get ready to choose a theme! You’ll want to pick something that reflects the mom-to-be’s personality and celebrates the new baby’s impending arrival. If you feel lost on theme suggestions, some ideas could be a fairytale theme, jungle animals, superheroes, or even Peter Rabbit. Brainstorm with the guest of honor or visit Pinterest for endless theme suggestions!

 Plan Your Menu 

Once the theme is in place, it’s time to plan your menu! B & M Catering is happy to make this part of the planning simple for you. We offer a variety of full service and a la carte options, so your options are never limited. Fruit & veggie platters, sliders, salads, and skewers are all popular choices for events such as showers!

Include Small Businesses in the Baby Gift Registry

A gift registry lets guests know what the mom-to-be needs to prepare for the new bundle of joy’s arrival. One wonderful way to recognize the changing landscape of 2021 is recognizing the support small businesses need as they recover from the 2020 year. Work with your mom-to-be to identify some small businesses that local guests can visit and shop in-store as a show of support for your community! 

A baby shower is a perfect way to welcome the arrival of a new baby into the world, and with these tips, your celebration can be just as beautiful as ever.
