Congratulations, you or someone special in your life is expecting! One of the things that soon to be parents can look forward to (aside from their wonderful baby of course) is a baby shower! Whether you’re planning one for yourself or for a special mum-to-be, baby showers are fun, exciting and give friends and family a reason to celebrate the upcoming arrival of a new member. Baby showers are more than just a party, they are an amazing way to celebrate and honor the soon to be mother. For the guests, it is a way to bond, laugh, share memories and just have fun!
If you want that amazing woman in your life to feel extra special or if you are that special lady, I would love for you to book in a maternity session with me! I would be honoured to capture this beautiful journey for you. I offer maternity photography sessions which enable you, or that special woman you’re planning this party for, to feel empowered, beautiful and can treasure these memories for a lifetime. To make things more amazing, I have a gift registry option available which allows family and friends to contribute any amount of their choice to the session, providing assistance with the cost of the photos.
Planning a baby shower requires you to sharpen your organizing skills, take out your creative guns and pour in a whole lot of love into the mix. Your to-do-list will be filled with a lot of party must-haves like cake, balloons, decorations and games! But, one of the most important and main things that you have to lock in is the venue of the shower. It will help you narrow down other important details like the theme, food, invite list and games!
In looking for a venue, make sure to keep in mind the most important thing - the mama-to-be! Since it is her special day. Look for a venus that reflects her, somewhere that she can feel comfortable and have fun with family and friends at the same time.
To help you get started, I have collated a list of some of the most amazing party venues where you can host your baby shower. Have fun venue hunting!
