Being a mother is a milestone for some women. Holding that little bundle of joy is something they look forward to. But expectant mothers will also need all the help they can get to make their journey to motherhood, if not smooth-sailing, a little stressful.
As friends, it is your duty to help them prepare for this journey and you can do that throwing an awesome surprise baby shower. If you are tasked to do one, here are some tips to help you out:
- List down what you need
The first thing that you need to do when you are planning for a surprise baby shower is to create a list of what you need to stage a party. You need to create a detailed checklist and to-do list that will serve as your guide when planning the entire thing – from getting services like Abu Dhabi flower delivery to the food and treat you will serve. Having a list would help you to mount everything without missing anything.
- Get other friends to help
Planning and mounting the event alone is stressful, even if it is a small one. As much as possible, enlist the help of friends to assist you. Since you will be spearheading the planning, you can delegate some tasks to other so you can offload and focus on more important things related to the party. You can ask your inner circle and the mom’s relatives for help. Do not be embarrassed to ask for help. Ask nicely and they would surely respond.
- Try to keep it down
Some surprise baby showers fail because the mom probably has some hints about what’s going on. Try not to ruin the surprise by giving as little details as possible. Keep the planning materials in a safe place where the mom would not check. If there are suspicions, squish it as soon as possible. Lastly, try to work under the radar without the mom noticing.
- Get the dad involve
Of course, the dad should play an important role in this event. You can probably ask him for some ideas to help you in planning the event. You can also give him some tasks to do so you can unload some task off your shoulders.
- Ask for outside assistance
Although it is a small event, contacting a supplier might be the best solution for things that you will not be able to do. You can ask the catering services to provide you the food. You can also call a cake delivery in Abu Dhabi to order the cake and other sweet treats.
