How to throw a baby shower on a budget?

Here are some ideas to help you organise a lovely baby shower on a budget.

Location

Unless you have more than fifty people coming, avoid spending money on a rental location, instead; consider your home. If the seasons are in favour, try using your garden or backyard.

Time

Here’s a budget hack - set a time of day that doesn’t require an entire meal to be served. Having a snack bar, dessert bar, etc. will cost much less than a full meal. Skip the caterers and set the food out/make it yourself. All you need are good recipes!

Invites and stationery

Don’t bother with snail mail paper invites, instead use customised virtual invites that your guests will love.

Decor

We have plenty of DIY decor ideas for you, all you need to do is pick a theme and follow our collection. These theme based printables will give everything a finished and a classy touch.

Multiple hosts

Join in with several friends to share in the planning and cost of throwing a shower. Set a specific budget for each person (food, decoration, etc) and you will all enjoy the party more!

Food

Get cooking! Skip the caterers and head to your local bulk grocery store for discount ingredients. Even if you have zero cooking experience, a nice spread of finger sandwiches, fruits and crackers shouldn’t be a problem. Call for a pot luck Enlist family and friends to help with the snacks or desserts. So everyone brings a snack or helps with some activities and decorations. This will help a lot on time spent preparing and expense.

Entertainment

Ladies love playing shower games and there’s no reason to spend money on fancy ones. You can download some interesting baby game printables. For music and entertainment, you don’t need to hire any special performers. All you need is a home stereo system with some of the mom-to-be’s favourite music to create a perfect atmosphere for the event.

Favors

A parting gift is a simple way to thank your guests for attending, and it doesn't have to be extravagant. Homemade cookies or chocolates make the perfect parting gift. Package them with inexpensive cellophane bags and a pretty ribbon. You can also let your floral decorations double as prizes —such that the winner gets the table centrepiece.
