Planning a Grand Baby Shower

So your sister, sister-in-law, daughter, daughter-in-law, best friend, or coworker is pregnant. Guess what! That means you’re in the hot seat to help plan a baby shower. First and foremost, your event should celebrate the guest of honor and shower her with necessities that will make adapting to life with a newborn easier. Here’s a checklist to help guide you through the planning process:

Pick a Date

Make sure you coordinate with the shower recipient when picking a date and time. There’s no rule about when to host a baby shower, but keep in mind that your guest of honor may not feel comfortable at a long celebration very late into her pregnancy.

Organize Your Team & Budget

How many guests will be invited? Who is chipping in to foot the bill? Will you be able to delegate decorating tasks, food, or games? Answering these questions can help clarify how much funding (and time) you have to work with when planning the shower.

Select a Venue

Picking a venue depends on the size of your budget and the level of formality your group is comfortable with. You may want to consider hosting your shower at a family member’s house or a restaurant. If the guest list is sizable, you may even choose one of the grand banquet halls in Chicago!

Send Invites

Once your date and venue are picked, it’s a good idea to try to get invites out as soon as possible. Ample time will help your guests make any necessary travel accommodations and buy gifts for the new mom!

Plan the Menu

If you decided to book your event with a banquet hall in Chicago, lunch may be included as part of your package. Otherwise, you may need to coordinate with a caterer, enlist the help of talented cooks in your network, or designate the event a potluck!
