Baby showers are a great way to share in the excitement of a friend or family member about the imminent arrival of their precious baby. It gives loved-ones the chance to spoil the mom-to-be and helps her begin to gather the things she'll need once her baby arrives. If you're the one tasked with planning this important event, it can seem like there's a huge amount to think about.


1. Compile a Guest List

While a surprise baby shower may seem like a great idea, the most important thing is to make sure that the mom-to-be can share this special day with all the people she loves most. For this reason, it's a good idea to ask for her input to make sure no one important is forgotten.

If the element of surprise is important, it's a wise idea to consult her partner or someone else who knows her well so that everyone she would want there receives an invite.
