LIttle Extras for Ensuring Baby Party Success

  • Arrange for a photographer and/or videographer to capture the event for the parents-to-be and guests.
  • Take a photo of each guest with the parents-to-be as they leave the baby shower, and then get prints made so the parents can include a copy of the photo with each thank you note.
  • Create a gift tracker and designate someone to write down gifts and givers so the mom-to-be will know who to send each thank you card to.
  • Provide a comfy chair, a small back pillow and footstool for the mother-to-be
  • Provide special seating for dad-to-be, grandparents, and siblings
  • Organize the cleanup crew ahead of time so you don't get stuck with all the tidying up after the party's over
  • Bring along storage totes or boxes to organize the gifts and make them easier for the mom-to-be to transport them home. Designate a team to pack up gifts and deliver them or load them into the car after the shower.
