Are you planning a baby shower for your wonderful newborn? This is with no doubt a moment you’ll remember for the rest of your life- and so will your family and friends. But have no fear! The following steps will help you plan and turn this special event into a successful and memorable one!
1. At home or outside?
This is the first question you’ll have to address : “Where should I host my baby shower?”
You may be attached to the idea of holding it at home but believe it or not, more and more couples decide to host their baby shower in restaurants, bars, cafes or even galleries. Make it a hassle-free, worry-free shower without having to worry during the middle of the event, how you’re going to clean up the place.
Tin Hill Social ($2,500++)
Children can roam free out into the wild while you can have a watch and still enjoy talking to your guests in the Garden or the Veranda at Tin Hill Social. Pool table and TVs for entertainment are also available in their courtyard. Different prices are available for minimum spending to rent out different parts! (Discover More)
Paint on it. Write on it. Make it your own photowall. Don’t settle for the normal baby shower. Are you the type to be more hands-on and make it a unique experience ? Glitch allows the guests to use the walls to decorate it to be special each single time for your event. It will especially be perfect for you if you know there will be many children coming and they can let out their so-exciting energy out onto the walls! (Discover More)
Tree Lizard Restaurant ($1,500++)

2. What about the theme ?
Another important aspect of the organization of your babyshower is the choice of the theme. Set the tone of your event with a theme your guests will remember. Should it be traditional classic or modern kitschy? This is your decision to make but in case you can’t figure it out, we have selected 4 of the best babyshower themes. Check it out!
Rainbows in the Clouds
The vibrant colours and the feel of the look as if you are in the clouds is the key point of this theme! I mean, who doesn’t love rainbows? Delight your guests with a fun concept!
If hosting the shower out in the greeneries like Tin Hill Social in the sunlight, synchronize your theme to go with the weather and make it a nautical theme. From blue cupcakes to blue utensils, the ways to make this theme come true are so simple!
At an event supply store, it is easy to find mustache stickers or sticks that people can hold and pose for pictures! Mustache is a fun party idea loved by everyone by kids to adults and it only involves few mustache sticks (you can even make one – just print the mustache and glue it on a chopstick)!
Pixar. Big eyes. Big smile. They will not only be decorations but also entertainment for your kid guests and everyone!
3. And the activities?
Having a few activity organized during your baby shower can be an excellent idea. This is the perfect occasion to remember about when you were young alongside with your family and friends. We have selected the best games that could be a hit during your event.
