Last Minute Baby Shower Ideas

While we try to plan for every aspect of our lives, sometimes events occur that can prevent us from having the advance notice we need to organize everything perfectly. Situations such as family emergencies, travel plans, or early delivery can often lead to a last minute baby shower. Although not necessarily ideal, here are some simple ideas that can help you plan a last minute baby shower that will be fun for everyone involved.

  • Ask for Help
    Whether you have a week’s notice or a month’s, you can plan a fantastic event. The first step is to call for help. By asking friends and family for their assistance, you are alerting them to the event as well as getting the help you desperately need. You will also be getting a lot of unsolicited advice, so it is important to remember that you are in charge and not let others take over your event. With more people helping, it is essential that you keep track of what everyone is doing and what still needs to be done.
  • The Internet Saves Time
    With invitations, emails, and online ordering, you can get a great deal of work accomplished in a fraction of the time you would spend sending things through the mail, calling or shopping.
  • Think Outside the Box
    Although cliché, this is exactly what you need to do when planning a last minute event. Instead of the traditional party venues, you can use a family member’s house, a park, a friend’s boat or go to the beach. Rather than traditional games, try gathering at a bowling alley or miniature golf range. Always remember to think of what the new mother enjoys most.
  • Decorations and Food
    When you have decided on a location, ask friends to bring in old baby pictures, books, or clothing. Each guest can bring a covered dish, for a diverse menu that will have something that everyone can enjoy. Pick a theme or idea, so you can coordinate the right decorations and food items. Remember to label it all so guests can bring home their dishes or leftovers after the event.
  • Favors
    Favors are a great addition to any event. Just because you are planning a last minute party, doesn’t mean you can’t have fantastic favors. At Favor Favor Baby, you can find a wide variety of favors that will fit any budget. Often, you can receive your items in less than a week and they can really enhance your event.  We have personalized favors from coffee to chocolates that are wonderful individually or presented together in gift bags or baskets. Just remember to double check the production time!

While things are often hectic, you can most definitely arrange a fantastic last minute baby shower. With these simple tips, you’ll be able to plan a wonderful event that your friends and family will love. Always remember, though, to step back and enjoy every moment of this special time.
