There is a lot of excitement to be had when planning the arrival of a new baby. Having a baby shower is a time of celebration, one that often involves family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. If you have more ideas than you have time, you’re going to need to narrow down your baby shower themes before buying decorations, planning refreshments, and decorating the nursery.

Tips for Narrowing Down Your Baby Shower Theme Ideas

Here are some tips that make the selection process easier:

Find inspiration on the internet.

You’ll find a lot of ideas that you love on parenting websites, Pinterest, and our blog. Write down what excites you or use an application like Pocket to drop ideas into. You’ll be able to refer to them anytime you want to because they’ll be in one convenient place.

Think about how you want to decorate the nursery.

Use that as your theme. It helps guide people’s purchases for presents. They’ll be able to look at your baby shower registry and see what you’ve selected. They’ll also know what you’ve selected by the invitations that you send if you have access to ones that fit your theme.

See what types of decorations you’re able to get.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for in stores, shop online. This helps you narrow down your choices because you’ll know exactly what is available. If it’s not something you can find, you’ll move on to another idea on your list until you find the perfect one.

Decide how many people you’re inviting.

If it’s a big party, you’ll need more decorations. If it’s smaller, you can make it feel more intimate with a few things. Having a list of who you want to invite helps you determine how many baby shower favors to buy to send home with guests.

Determine how long you want your party to be.

You won’t want to spend a lot of time on decorating if your get-together is only going to be an hour long. Keep in mind what you plan to do at the shower and let that finalize your decision as to theme. If you’re serving refreshments and plan to play some games with your guests, it’ll be longer than a shower you have at work during your lunch hour.

Knowing what type of theme you want to go with, how you plan to decorate, who you’re going to invite, and the length of the get-together helps you host the perfect baby shower. Let the people that matter most to you celebrate your pregnancy.
