Baby Shower Checklist for Planning a Baby Shower

Most shower checklists will suggest you start planning approximately four weeks before the intended shower date. This will give you enough time to do everything you need to without feeling rushed. The most important task is to pick a date! You should confirm this with the new mom and her immediate family as well. You don't want anyone to feel left out.

The baby shower invitations should be sent out approximately three weeks before the baby shower date. Be sure to include RSVPs or request people to phone you by a certain date. You want to have a final number by the second week.

This is important for ordering food and planning your menu. If you don't receive all your RSVPs don't by shy about calling people up and asking if they plan to attend.

If you are planning a large baby shower you should consider asking for help. Ask best friends, sisters, and anyone else you think might enjoy helping out. Be sure to let the new mom know who lent a hand in planning the baby shower. Everyone should feel appreciated.

If you are ordering food. Be sure to check with local catering companies. Best to check about two to three weeks before the baby shower. You don't want to find that everyone is booked solid. If you are ordering a cake this is best ordered at least two weeks before the baby shower.

Most baby shower checklists will remind you to buy some baby shower decorations. You don't have to be extravagant if you're on a budget. You can find some adorable baby shower decorations that will liven up the party space. But really all you need are perhaps some streamers, and a banner.

Planning party games is another important task on your baby shower checklist that must not be forgotten. Be sure to take some time deciding on the games you wish to play. If you think it sounds boring, it probably is. Trust your instinct when looking for fun baby shower games.

With all that's going on, don't forget to wrap the gifts! You may also want to wrap gifts such as party favors or prizes for the baby shower guests. If you want to do a good job try and not leave this until the last minute.

The above are just a few of the many things found on a baby shower checklist. Planning a baby shower is a lot of work, a checklist can help to make things that much easier.
