Spring Baby Showers - Adding A Little Spring To A Special Day Spring is a fabulous time to hold a baby shower. The world is in bloom around us. Its a season of new starts, new lives, and new hopes. What better time of the year could there be to celebrate a new baby? Here are a few great ideas to help you incorporate spring into your shower. The beautiful temperatures that come with spring in many areas encourage outdoor shower. For this reason, garden baby showers are very popular for the spring. A garden party can be held in a pretty backyard garden or at a local garden that hosts parties. The parties theme can just be a garden baby shower, or you can go with a theme such as a baby is blooming. Use floral themed invitations, and give personalized seed packets or individual flowers as party favors. No worries about decorations, the beauty of nature can not be beat. Plus, surrounded by nature your guests are sure to relax and enjoy themselves. Tea parties are also very popular for spring showers. If you are in an area where springs are too cold to host a party outdoors, or where spring is rainy, a tea party can be way to bring a spring feel indoors. The light femininity of a tea party, especially one decorated with flowers and florals is perfect for a baby shower. Have the shower at a beautiful tea room. Or, decorate with lots of flowers and serve tea and finger sandwiches. Use tea party themed baby shower invitations. Give your guests personalized tea packets and honey for their party favors. Decorate simply with flowers and pretty dishes. No matter how old she is, every girl at heart loves a tea party. A less common, but quite fun idea for a spring baby shower is to hold it at a zoo. In the spring most zoos are celebrating their new babies too. So, having a baby shower will fit right in. For games your guests can go on scavenger hunts for the new babies at the zoo. They can also match the names of the baby animals to the type of animal. You can use almost any animal themed baby shower favor, making it easy to find one that you will love. Decorations can be fairly minimal, and can be done in a zoo animal, jungle, or baby animal theme. Invitations can feature adorable baby animals. Since this is a popular shower theme year round, youll have no trouble at all finding everything you need to make the party perfect. If youd rather have a more traditional setting, such as a home, restaurant, or party venue, consider a spring theme. There are many spring friendly themes to choose from. A baby is blooming, flowers, baby animals, a pea in a pod, and baby zoo animals are all themes that work wonderfully for a spring baby shower. Even the pastels we often use for babies mix wonderfully with spring. Especially if you add in a few flowers. Whether you choose a garden shower, a tea party, the zoo, or a more traditional theme, bringing in a bit of spring cheer is sure to enhance the shower and bring a smile to everyones faces.
Baby Shower Favor Ideas Many people start out looking for cheap baby shower favors because they have the misconception that all baby shower favors not handmade are expensive. I just hate the word "cheap" because it sounds like the person hosting the baby shower is not enjoying it one bit and they do not want to spend one penny more than necessary on the baby shower. I know from experience in working with the party planners that is not the case but that sticking to a budget is a concern so how about we rephrase our term to affordable baby shower favor ideas or inexpensive baby shower favor ideas. I think after weddings, baby showers are my most favorite event to attend. As in weddings, everyone is so happy about the new arrival or arrivals that its such a joy to get together with family and friends and celebrate the baby with the mom to be. If youre the one hosting the baby shower and are a bit stumped about what baby shower favors to give your guests, lets do some brainstorming together. It sounds like such a cliché but if you already know the sex of the baby, then you can narrow down your favor choices to blue or pink. If you are lucky enough to have time to put the baby shower favors together, then the easiest way to begin is to purchase pink or blue favor boxes or favor bags with matching ribbon. Candies such as jelly beans are always nice fillers for the boxes along with nuts or mints. If youve chosen a favor bag, then you have a bit more options. One of my favorite baby shower favors was a pink organza bag filled with potpourri. I tossed it in my lingerie drawer when I went home and the scent lingered for several months after the shower - lovely reminder of a fun day. A few more ideas for filling the favor bag are bath crystals, hot cocoa mix (for showers in the winter), or wildflower seeds for spring showers. If youre like me and you do not have a lot of time to sit down and hand make your baby shower favors, then youre looking for a fun, yet affordable gift for the guests to take home with them. Many adorable baby shower favors are really not expensive. Lets take a look. Candle favors are great party favors for so many events because its a practical party favors that guests will definitely use some time in the future. Candle favors imprinted with a baby and baby power scented or baby bottle candle favors are just too cute for words and quite inexpensive. Another affordable way to go is to choose a baby shower favor that does double duty - first as a place card holder then as a picture frame your guests take home with them to use later (possibly to hold babys first picture?). From baby clothes to teddy bears, photo frames are available in many ways and low prices that you are sure to find one to match your baby shower decorations. Personalized baby shower favors arent as expensive as people think. You do have to purchase a minimum number since the favor is personalized with the Mom To Bes name, but overall quite the buy. A few of my favorites are lip balms, hand creams and even bath gels. These baby shower favors are small yet just the right size to toss in your suitcase when traveling and since theyre personalized, will always remind the guest of the fun time they had at the baby shower. We hope this article has given you a few ideas for choosing your baby shower favors. Most importantly, just have fun - both when planning the baby shower and when you receive all the compliments on a shower well planned!
