Whether you’re planning your own shower or relying on a friend to do it for you, these creative and quirky Country Themed Baby Shower Ideas will provide some stellar inspiration. You have to decide on and organize the date, time, location, guest list, country themed baby shower invitations, theme, decor, games, country themed baby shower food menu, catering, cake, gift list, party favors, speeches, country themed baby shower decorations, seating and most importantly the budget. Traditionally, it was the person hosting the baby shower that paid for everything and it was considered their gift to the mom-to-be.
Many baby showers happen one or two months before the baby’s due date. Throwing the shower sooner is fine, maybe there are scheduling constraints or concerns about the baby arriving early, for example. Consider the number of guests you plan to invite and your budget. If you’re hosting the shower for a close friend, you may have some ideas about the guest list already. It’s best to consult with the guest (or guests) of honor before finalizing your list, though. Hosting a shower at home creates an intimate feel to the party, but won’t accommodate a large guest list. If you have a bigger budget and more people to invite, consider hosting the party at a restaurant, country club or banquet hall.
Visit a few potential options before settling on a venue so you can evaluate the pros and cons of different locations. Next, nail down the menu. Make sure to incorporate your guest of honor’s pregnant tastes into your menu. For example, if she can’t stand the smell of fish, nix it from the menu. If she craves comfort food, try fried chicken and burgers. Choose finger foods to provide an easy option for your guests to munch on while socializing. Then, choose some delicious desserts, such as cupcakes, cookies, tea cakes or even a candy bar.
