Victorian Baby Shower
Did you know many of today's new moms love Victorian Baby Showers? For many busy moms, it's tough sitting down and relaxing with friends, especially while planning for a new baby. Since new mothers barely have time for themselves away from kids, consider creating a baby shower with a more relaxing, elegant theme that focuses on talking and enjoying time together with friends. Best of all, it is fairly inexpensive, allowing you to put on a fun, picture-perfect baby shower without spending a fortune on the baby shower itself.
When it comes to food for your party, elegance is key. Go for foods that are beautiful and decorative, like tea cakes or cupcakes. When it comes to drink, make sure to also be careful with your selections since most soon to be mothers are restricted when it comes to caffeine. Just to be safe, have a selection of caffeine free and herbal teas available so that everyone at the party, including the guest of honor, has a chance to enjoy a nice, hot cup of tea as you play baby shower games and talk. Also, don't forget the little details, like baby shower themed sugar cubes for the tea!
Victorian Baby Shower: Decorations
Like any party, decorations are key to setting the mood for any baby shower, especially a Victorian baby shower. For this type of baby shower, vintage colors and flowers are a major part of the decor. Various shades of pinks, red, and purples should be focused on when picking out decorations. If you can find it, also things with a lace like look to make the party room look as elegant as possible. As well, try encouraging those attending the party to pick wrapping paper and decorative bags with these themes, to keep everything cute and elegant, to help the new mom feel special.
Victorian Baby Shower: Table Setting
As part of the decorations make sure you find appropriate tableware for your baby shower. While you may be tempted to get out the fine china for the baby shower, it isn't necessary. You can find beautiful, vintage-decorated paper and cardboard tableware that is not only beautiful, but elegant. This is a great way to reduce mess at the party and keep stress down for both you and the guest of honor since clean up won't take long at all. You can even find elegant plastic tablecloths that can be thrown away from the party, making things as easy as possible for you as the organizer. In the end, it's easy and inexpensive to create the perfect Victorian baby shower for your best friend!
