This week, we caught up with Kim and Jodie from The Party Parlour, for an insight into how to create a perfectly pretty baby shower for both a boy and a girl!
Everyone knows a baby shower is all about making Mum feel special at the later stage of her pregnancy. Kim and Jodie tell us that the most popular for of baby shower is an afternoon tea setting, where mum-to-be can sit and relax while being spoiled by her family and friends. We like the sound of that!
The girls say it’s important to remember that family and friends will be more than happy to help out with the catering, so take them up on any offer to bring some treats along! Whetever relieves you of stress on your special day is a great idea. A few savoury nibbles at the table will keep guests more than happy!
A refreshments table ties together all the little details to create a wonderful centerpiece for your occasion. Try to organize the table so that guests can easily serve themselves and always have non-alcoholic options such as punch or juice. By bringing together accessories of a similar colour palette with carefully selected food and beverages, your table can look effortlessly styled. Our Rocking Horse bunting and personalised labels are a cute addition to the drinks table, and you can even get the bubbles to match the colour too!
COLOURS FOR YOUR BABY SHOWER
Whether you want to theme your shower around the sex of the baby or keep everyone guessing until the birth, you can host the perfect shower for a baby boy, girl or even go gender neutral by simply changing the base colours of invitations and accessories.
Another great idea is to reveal the gender of the baby at the shower with the cutting of a cake. This type of celebration is best themed with a neutral palette such as lemon and mint green or pastels.
Simply let an iced cake take centre stage at the event and the gender is revealed when you take the first slice!
Here are a few examples of how you can achieve gorgeous looks with different colour combinations.
A combination of lemon yellows, cool greys and bright whites are the key to creating a classic gender neutral palette. Fresh, yet calming, these colours can be mixed and matched to your hearts content.
