You are given the honor of throwing your friend/sister/relative/co-worker’s baby shower. But you may not have realized that the price tag can add up. So how can you cut back without looking like you are cutting corners.
Here are some tips and secrets on how to create a gorgeous Baby Shower on a Budget.
Location and Time
Renting a venue can be one of the most expensive parts of the party. Instead, think about offering up your home (or ask a relative or another friend to do so). Also, think about the time of day your party will be. Set a time of day that doesn’t require an entire meal to be served. Have a snack bar, candy/dessert bar, etc. By not serving an entire meal you will save!
If you want to save a little on invitations but are not really into the e-mail (Evite) option think about an instant download product. You can still have the personal touch of “snail mail” at a fraction of the cost! Learn about Instant downloads here!
Take stock of items you or the new mom have already. What can you use for decor? The dollar store and thrift stores are also great resources to get some discounted decor pieces.
Games and prizes
Forgo the complicated games that require a lot of props. Stick with games that only need paper and pens. Our shop has a ton of instant download game cards for you to check out! Let the centerpieces double as the prizes! Food/drink
