Mother To Be Preferences

It is important to remember that the whole party will revolve around her and therefore she needs to have things that she is most comfortable with. You can limit the ideas into options then present to the mother to make the selection.
The Gender Of The Baby
A great idea to having the perfect theme for the upcoming baby shower is considering the gender of the baby if is known at all. This is important because there are a variety of themes best for girls as well as those suiting a baby boy. You can ask the mother if you are not too sure of what gender the baby is and get her approval that it is indeed okay to choose the theme based on this.
Another great theme idea is one based on the parents’ occupation or hobbies. The theme can also take the path of the kind of guests invited such as couple only or females only or any other as there are themes that best suit ladies and not men and vice versa. This means that knowing who has been invited can help greatly in making the final decision on the theme.
