Tips on Planning a Baby Shower

  1. Choose a Theme

    Deciding on a theme for a baby shower is helpful as it serves as a guide to refer back to as you make the rest of your planning and décor decisions. Adobe Spark’s templates feature theme ideas to help you get inspired if you’re not sure where to start. Spark’s designs are also versatile, so if you have a theme in mind with no design to match, you can adjust colors, design elements, and upload your own graphics and photos to create printed paper goods that showcase your custom theme.

  2. Invite Your Guests

    Nail down the details as soon as possible to let your guests know when and where you’d like them to come celebrate the shower. Be sure to include who’s the host and who’s the mama, where the shower is being held, and when to come. Show off your theme and any other personal details that will get your guests excited for the wonderful day. Don’t forget RSVP information. Send your invites digitally or download and print to send in the mail.

  3. Plan Your Party Agenda

    Baby showers are a great opportunity for special activities unique to the occasion. There are countless types of games, crafts, and activities to inspire joy and laughter with your guests. If you plan to play games that involve paper goods, design your print-outs for free with Adobe Spark Post. Break up any games with a meal or light bites and use Spark Post to make your menu for your guests to know what they have to look forward to. Print out décor for free with your themed designs, along with other favors such as name tags or small cards for guests to write “Advice for the Mama-to-be.”

  4. Top it off with Party Favors

    Treat your guests to a parting gift as a way of thanking them for their presence and generosity, that can also double as a token for them to remember the day. Consider your theme and any gifts that might follow suit as a party favor. Also, rather than putting together a goodie bag full of extraneous knick-knacks, think about gifting one special item that will serve a longer and more fulfilling purpose. Tack on a custom tag using your Adobe Spark Post design skills for a personalized touch to your gift.

  5. Cherish the Memories

    While it’s important to be present and enjoy every moment to the fullest, don’t forget to document the occasion. Take photos, ask guests to take photos, create a shared album, pass out disposable cameras for guests to use, or hire a photographer. Share your photos with photo slideshow or collages made with Adobe Spark. Another great idea is to make a guest book for party-goers to sign at the party and dole out some of their most helpful advice for the mama-to-be.

  6. Express Gratitude

    Just like our mothers taught us, you should always say thank you. Do so in a timely manner with customized stationery made with Adobe Spark, sent digitally or via mail. Make sure to thank each guest for their attendance, their gift (if they brought one), and for any advice they had to share.
