How To Plan A Baby Shower (Party Tips)

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of HotRef Baby Shower Ideas for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Having a baby is a super exciting time in a woman’s life.  I have been blessed to have 5 baby’s and now baby 6 due in a few months. Many have the misconception that the more children a woman has a baby shower is not needed but I disagree. EVERY baby should be celebrated! Thankfully with all my pregnancies I have had someone give me a baby shower. 

Baby Shower

I know planning for a baby shower can be lots of work but it is very rewarding. can help with the planning! It is all about the details when planning a baby shower such as food, decoration and prizes.



Planning List – I am big on making lists.  Where will the party be?  What is your budget?  Who will you invite?  So much to plan that a list will keep you organized! 


Food –  I find that finger foods and appetizers work best for baby showers. Let’s face it woman like to get together and talk and this type of food makes it easier to eat when trying to mingle. 


Decorations –  Make the party place festive. offers a full line of decorations including themed items to personalized items to make that special day perfect! 


Party favors and gifts – Who does not like getting party favors at a party? has gifts that every woman will love such as candles, key chains, picture frames and more! You can even keep with your theme when giving a party gift too so that your guest will never forget the theme during a momentous occasion! 


Not only can be your one stop party place for planning a baby shower but they can help with wedding showers,  anniversary parties and business events. Have you planned a baby shower and if so what party planning tips do you have to share?
