Planning a Baby Shower
Whether you’re planning your own baby shower or the girls are organising one for you, our step-by-step guide for planning your do will ensure a fuss-free affair.
Theme & Color
Start with picking out a color. Most baby showers’ decorations are based on the baby’s gender such as blue or pink. But if the gender is under wraps, then go for yellow or green. Once that’s done, it’s time to choose the theme.
Whether you want to keep it close and personal or big and extravagant, hire an event organiser to ensure stress levels are kept low. After all, they’re the experts! They have the time to make centerpieces and floral arrangements. Contact Sucre Deco, Dreamflavours, Papeterie, or Fairy Floss for your event while you sit back and relax.
If you’d rather have the shower somewhere other than your own home, pick a venue with decor and ambiance that suits the occasion. We love Nanny’s Pavilion’s homey decor. For a more secluded and sophisticated ambiance, request Bunga Rampai’s sunroom. This multi function house is an absolute home away from home.

Keep food light but filling. There’s no need for a 5-course meal; it will take away the time to spend on the mother-to-be. After all, this is why you’re celebrating. Finger foods, or to make it fancy, hors d’oeuvres, should do the trick. Think of a tea party for adults. Go online for some baby shower food and dessert ideas like Ready to Pop!corn and Chocolate Party Spoons.
Don’t feel bad about asking for what you need. Gift registries are designed to save your guests from guessing and spending too much time looking for the right gift for you. Instead, they can go to the store of your choice, scan through your baby registry, and voila… they’re out of the store with a gift in minutes! AND you get what you want. Compile a list of what your baby will need before you visit Mothercare, Little Toes, and Birds n Bees. Don’t forget to list the stores on your invitation.
Fun and games
No, it’s not childish to have games at an adult party. In fact, games at baby showers are part of the tradition. Get tons of baby shower games ideas online.
