Baby Shower Checklist

The secret to planning a successful baby shower is to plan, plan, plan ahead. A baby shower checklist can help you do just that. What should go on your list? Consider the following:

Location: The first item on your checklist should be location. You can host a baby shower almost anywhere you want — a restaurant, tea parlor, park, beach, sports venue, or, of course, your home. (For more on this, see “Planning a Home Baby Shower,” “Planning a Restaurant Baby Shower,” and “Planning a Destination Baby Shower.”)

Refreshments: No baby shower checklist is complete without something to eat and drink. Food can run the gamut from snacks and dessert to a full buffet or five-course sit-down dinner. As for beverages, consider coffee, tea, punch, and soda. (For more on this, see “Baby Shower Refreshments 101” and “Baby Shower Drinks.”)

Tableware: Don’t forget to put plates, cups, glasses, utensils, serving pieces (e.g., punch bowl, serving trays, pitchers), tablecloth, napkins, etc., on your list. It’s up to you if you want to use real dishes or paper and plastic.

Rentals: Depending on the size of your baby shower and where you hold it, you may need to rent (or borrow) such items as tables, folding chairs, serving pieces, a coffeemaker, etc.

Decorations:Your checklist should include a few decorations. Think about flowers, balloons, candles, and decorations for walls, tables, and yard. (For more on this, see “Picking a Baby Shower Theme” and “8 Ways to Create a Beautiful Baby Shower Buffet.”)
