  • Venue & Invitation
  1. Depending on the number of guests, check out various baby shower venues on the desired dates. Be flexible with the dates if your event falls in the peak season (or the weekend).
  2. If you are the host, take help. Lots of it. Manage things in teams of twos. It will be difficult to take care of everything on your own.
  3. Decide on the kind of venue you want- a lounge, a resort, a garden, a rooftop or a farmhouse? Google “baby shower venue near me” to make your venue hunt easy. Check out some of the terrace venues in Mumbai, like Vivette Banquet, Jade Sky etc. Put the soon-to-be-mother’s comfort first; make sure that the venue is spacious and airy.
  4. Select the style of baby shower invitations- whether you want a 3d pop-up card, a simple handwritten note or an e-card.
  5. Keep the budget in mind so you don’t end up overspending on renting the venue.
  6. Crosscheck all the services and limitations with the venue before booking one.

  2. Use hanging ribbons attached to the roof with the photographs of the family.
  3. Theme-based cupcakes like the Moon & Star Duo, Animal World or Fresh Fruit Cupcakes are a great idea.
  4. Cut-outs of paper sheets in different styles and forms can be hung across the venue corners or glued on the walls.
  5. Add a hand-written ‘Thank You’ note in the goodies basket for your guests.
  6. Add exotic and tropical mocktails to your beverage menu.
  7. Use origami flowers for the centre table.
  8. Keep some homemade jam jars ready as takeaways.

  • Theme Ideas
