Party Pieces beautiful new Little One range is the perfect choice for a baby shower, with it’s neutral hues and gorgeous elephant emblem it’s particularly good if you don’t know the gender of the imminent arrival.
When choosing a date for the shower, early in the third trimester is best – Mum will be nicely pregnant but not so pregnant that she can’t enjoy it! Then pick out a venue for the shower, it could be in somebody’s house, a local hotel or restaurant for afternoon tea, or you could book a venue such as a church hall. An outdoor venue is a lovely idea but do consider access to toilets and a Plan B for wet weather! It’s best to ask the Mum to be who she wants to attend in case you miss someone out. Once you’ve got your guest list sorted send out these super cute die-cut Little One invites. If you need the guests to bring anything for a game you have planned make sure you include details on the invite.
Arrive at the venue in enough time to decorate before Mum arrives, you want it to be perfect when she gets there. There are plenty of beautiful decorations as part of the Little One range, hang some grey, orange and white Little One Honeycombs from the ceiling, string some Bunting up, not forgetting some beautiful Little One Balloons filled with helium. If you have a large space to fill and need some more decorations a couple of white crepe party garlands will look perfect. It’s nice to have a decorated area ready for guests to leave gifts as well. When the Mum to be arrives, present her with a co-ordinating Little One Belly sash to wear and keep as a memento of the day.
Once everyone has arrived it’s time to play some games. Ask everyone to bring a photo of themselves as a baby, number the pictures and ask partygoers to write down who they think each of the pictures are – whoever gets the most correct is the winner! Have a small prize ready such as a packet of jelly babies! You can also play the Baby Bump Measuring Game – Each player cuts a length from the paper bump measure. The length closest to the actual tummy circumference wins! A sweepstake is always fun – guests can write down their guess of the arrival date, weight and sex of the baby- when it arrives the closest guess will win.
If you’re doing the catering then Little One range comes with beautiful cups, plates and napkins all featuring the gorgeous elephant design. Sprinkle some Little One Confetti on the table as well to complete the look. Prepare lots of lovely finger food – a selection of sandwiches, cheese straws, crudités and a selection of dips and anything else you know the Mum to be loves. When it comes to cake, there are plenty of Little One decorations – cupcake cases and picks if you’re baking a selection of cupcakes or a decoration kit for a larger cake which includes 11 toppers and a chalkboard banner to customise with your own special message.
