This may have been a month ago but I just got the pictures and it was so fun reminiscing! My lovely friends and family threw me a baby shower brunch in honor of our littlest to arrive any day. I thought I’d share the elegant, whimsy of the day…
Provide space for guests to sit around, eat, drink & mingle
Have an array of food options to accommodate all guests likings – and pregnancy cravings
Put a spin on a fruit salad: watermelon, feta, basil & balsamic.
Include the mom-t0-be’s favorite indulgence.
Bring out the competitive spirit and have people guess the birth date.
Include other party games to keep guests engaged and on their toes!
Allow for plenty of time when it comes to gifts and interchange games between them.
Have a cocktail (& mocktail) table for guests to mix and match — we had a mimosa bar!
Announce the baby’s name (if you believe it’s time and you’re ready)
You don’t have to go overboard & place a few whimsical flowers in jars around the party.
Give the mom-to-be plenty of time to mingle and area’s to sit – chances are, she’s tired!
Grab a few shots of mom with her babes because chances are she won’t dress up too often in the short time ahead – give her a small photo shoot opportunity!
Have guests pray and sing praises over the soon-to-be arrival to encourage mom.
