Oh, Baby! Here’s How to Plan a Memorable Baby Shower
Oh, baby! It’s time to start planning your BFF’s or daughter’s baby shower, and you’re full of all the emotions. No worries, we’ve got you covered with simple tips to make baby shower planning a breeze – plus delicious catering options so you won’t have to fuss about the menu.
- Choose a Theme for the Baby Shower
First things first, you’ll probably want to choose a theme for the baby shower – be it woodland animals, Winnie the Pooh, or nautical. Sprinkle in decorations throughout the room to really embody the theme you’re going for. If you know the sex or name of the baby, you can also make a few decorative signs to hang.
- Plan Your Menu
Once you have your theme nailed down, it’s time to plan your menu! B & M Catering makes this part simple for you, as we offer a variety of full service and a la carte options depending on what you’re going for. We 100% recommend doing a buffet with fan-favorite options like fruit & veggie platters, clam chowder, sliders, salads and skewers.
The beauty of working with us is that you can feel free to incorporate your own cake or favorite add-ons to complete your menu. Fun fact: one recent shower we catered, the mama-to-be wanted to incorporate local PVDonuts!
- Make it Interactive
Keep your party guests entertained (and take the pressure off the mommy-to-be) by planning a few games. One tried and true favorite is having each guest cut a piece of string to guess the belly size of the guest of honor. The closest guess wins a prize! Baby Shower Bingo is also a hit during the gift portion of the shower.
- Consider a Special Takeaway Favor
Consider having a special favor to give your guests before leaving – as a “thank you” for coming near and far. Keep it simple and gift them something they’ll actually use (or eat) like a mini sugar scrub or small jar of colored M&Ms.
