How To Plan A Baby Shower On A Budget

If you have a friend or someone you know that is having a baby, showers are always a fun party to throw. The down side is they can be very costly. To help you save money on throwing a baby shower I wanted to give you a few tips that really add up the savings.

Ways to Plan A Baby Shower On A Budget:

When it comes to decorating the place where you are having the shower, a big way to save is to use re-usable items. Instead of buying a gift for the person you are having the shower for, use items in your decorations that can be the gift after the shower. Use things like diapers for a diaper cake, baby shirts, toys, bottles and pacifiers to do all of your decorating.

A great way to save on the expense of food for the party, is to have everyone bring a dish. You can even plan the menu of you like and let them RSVP with the item they would like to supply. Here is a really cute Watermelon Fruit Carriage for your baby shower.

When it comes to things to do at the shower there is no need to spend money at a party store. There are tons of games you can play with just simple everyday household items. You can use paper towels to make small baby diapers and either place mustard or peanut butter in a few and whoever ends up with those wins. Another one would be clothes pins. Everyone gets a pin and if someone says the word baby then you get their pin. Who ever has the most pins at the end wins. We also have a selection of FREE printable Baby Shower Games and a really fun Dirty Diaper game!
