  2. Find a perfect spot. You can choose to have your house or backyard as your event area. If you’re on a generous budget, look for convenient party venues that can host your guests; such as, a hotel banquet hall or local restaurant.
  3. Set the correct date and time. Check with your closest friends and family for their availability and schedule your event for a time that easily fits into your schedule.
  4. Think of the perfect theme. There are hundreds of baby shower themes that you can choose from. Once you’ve decided on yours, search for free online printable designs. Include matching shower favors as memorable take-home gifts for your guests.
  5. Surprise her. To make the party more momentous for the mom-to-be, host a surprise shower for the guest of honor. Consult your close friends and relatives when preparing your guest list.
  6. Print with invitations. Send invitations at least three weeks before the event. Match your invitations to the theme of the party itself. Make sure the invitations contain all the vital information like date, time and place; and include a note about where you signed up for the baby registry. Be creative in the design of your invitations.
