Throwing a baby shower is a fun project, but from decorations to food , it can also be fairly expensive. With a few expert tips, however, you can host an awesome shower without breaking the bank.
While you may be anxious on getting a jump on the planning, wait until guests RSVP to buy supplies or go grocery shopping. The amount of guests can dictate how many things you'll need, so you'll want a fairly accurate sense of who is coming so that you don't buy too much and waste money.
You also shouldn't feel obligated to empty your wallet buying decorations.
"If you place the focus on guests interacting, the party can be just as meaningful," reports the Creston News Advertiser. Experts recommend letting guests write messages in a blank guestbook for the mom-to-be.
Finally, baby shower favors are a great way to show your guests that their presence was appreciated. Luckily, there are budget-friendly options like personalized lollipops and chocolate bars. Pals will enjoy the sweet treats and your party is bound to be a cost-efficient success.
