Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

How would you like to be able to plan the ultimate baby shower? It is really simple! All you need to do is follow these simple instructions and you will have the most fun that you've ever had at a baby shower.

The first thing you need to know is how many people do you plan to invite to the baby shower? Talk to the mum to be to get a list of people to invite. Now remember that if you are throwing a surprise party it is probably best to talk to the mother or sister of the new mum for a list of people to invite. Depending on how big or small the house or hall is, try to keep the guest list reasonable.

Second, decide on a theme. Is this baby shower for a girl, boy, or is it a surprise? It is still common for the new parents to not know the sex of the baby. Is this a multiple birth? Depending on the sex of the baby or babies determines alot about the theme of the baby shower. For twins or triplets (or more) consider doing a "2 peas in a pod" theme or a Noah's Ark theme (2 by 2). Popular themes are princess, sweet baby girl, teddy bear, etc. There are some fun mom themed baby showers as well.

The third thing to do is to plan the flow of the baby shower. When will the new mum be opening gifts? When will food be served? Should we play games while people are coming or do we wait until everyone has arrived? The best flow for a successful baby shower is to wait until all of the guests have arrived to play any games. While the guests are arriving is a good time to mingle and eat/drink. Then there is the gift opening, and of course, the cake waits until the very end.

For the fourth and final step, plan the decorations/games. Baby shower planning is easy when you have the right steps to follow. Keep the decorations simple. There are extravagant packages out there that cost a fortune, but really all you need is a couple strands of white Christmas lights, some streamers in the colours the theme of the baby shower, some balloons, and it is up to you whether or not you want matching dishes/cups/utensils. You can get the little baby confetti that are in the shape of baby items as well.

Baby Showers are not complete without a centerpiece! Why not try a Diaper Cake, in addition to a cake that you can eat! Most of the companies do a custom themed diaper cake so that you can have exactly what you want to match the theme.

See how easy it is to plan the perfect baby shower? The most important thing to remember is that it should be fun!
