First comes love, then comes marriage; you know the rest! Finding out that you are having a baby is one of the most exciting things that can happen during your life. At Carriage Greens Country Club, not only do we throw some of the best Bolingbrook wedding receptions, but we also throw baby showers for expecting mothers as well! They are the perfect chance to celebrate with family and friends, eat great food and open presents!
Here are some tips on how to plan the perfect baby shower.
Plan a Date
It is important to plan the baby shower during the expectant mother’s 28-35th week of being pregnant. Typically, this is a time that the mother still has a lot of energy and also is displaying a cute baby bump. Plus, this will still give the mother enough time to exchange or return any gifts that aren’t needed.
Pick a Memorable Theme
It’s tempting to pick a theme such as a pastel color to celebrate the mother and baby-to-be. However, a theme like this typically is not very exciting for anyone involved. We suggest picking a theme that revolves around the interests of the expectant mother. You can also base the theme around a favorite childhood book such as Charlotte’s Web or Dr. Seuss. Food can follow suit of the theme as well.
Games and activities planned for the guests help to make it memorable. If the name or gender has not been revealed, you can have guests try to guess this information. You can also have them guess the birth date of the baby as well as how many pounds and inches he or she will be.
It is also ideal to send guests off with a small bag of goodies for the road. This does not have to be expensive, but it will help make your shower memorable.
Whether you need to plan a Bolingbrook wedding reception or a baby shower, make your vision a reality at Carriage Greens Country Club!
