How to Host The Perfect Baby Shower! - Like Honey

How to Host The Perfect Baby Shower!

Are you planing a baby shower? Looking for a new and exciting way to celebrate a new little bundle? I've partnered with Basic Invite to share how you can be the hostess with the mostest right from the start!

First things first--pick a theme! Consider your guest list. Are you inviting ladies only? Is this a shower for mom and dad? A family affair? No matter what your party plans are, Basic Invite has a custom invite to cover it. Here are a few of my favorites:


Second, it's time to choose an invitation! Basic Invite has a wide array of invitations for every occasion and theme. There are even neutral baby shower invitations for those mamas who are patiently waiting to be surprised! Don't love the invites the way they are? Basic Invite has an almost unlimited choice of colors for you to completely customize any invitation on their website just the way you want it! Once you select your design online, you can customize each element with one of over 180 color options in an instant preview. Use pinks and purples to make your safari baby shower invitations fancy and feminine or opt for shades of grey and yellow to keep things gender neutral. 

PRO TIP: plan your invitation colors and shower theme around baby's nursery theme and all your guests will be able to bring gifts for baby that mom will love!


Ready to mail them off? Don't forget the envelope! You can choose from over 40 different color envelopes to wrap your invitation up with a little extra pizzazz! You can even allow Basic Invite to do some of the work for you by taking advantage of their Address Capturing Service--simply share a link on Facebook (or your choice of social platform) where you can request all of your potential guests' address information. It will be safely stored on your Basic Invite account and can easily be selected during the checkout process so your envelopes are addressed and ready to go! This is such a great way to have all of your mailing information in one place and also tick one more item off your hostess to-do list!


Third, it's time to discuss the details! No shower is complete without a few fun games and entertainment! Basic Invite even has you covered there--just check out their fun Baby Mad Libs or Baby Song Contest printables and get ready to have a blast with all of your guests. It's a great way to get conversation flowing, too, for parties where not all guests know each other. You can also find printable monthly onesie stickers (which make a great gift!) and small stickers to add the perfect finishing touch to any party favor.

One last thing: want to really step up your hostess game? Why not think ahead for the mommy-to-be and add some custom thank you cards to your invitation order? She'll be so grateful for the reminder (trust me, overwhelmed is an understatement to a new mom!) and it'll take one more item off of her growing to-do list, too! Talk about the hostess with the mostest!

Basic Invite is currently offering 15% off with code 15FF51 so you can grab your invites, envelopes, thank you cards, and even your baby shower gift all in one place, for less! I really love how Basic Invite makes everything so easy and tailor-made just for you! I'll definitely be ordering my Christmas cards (with FREE recipient address printing!) from them this holiday season! I might even have to come up with a few more reasons to throw a party in the meantime! What will your next party be?
