Cupid’s Advice: 

You don’t have to be part of a celebrity family to have a stylish baby shower. Listen to Cupid’s tips about how to throw a chic baby shower worthy of any celebrity baby:

1. Come up with a theme: Choosing a theme for your baby shower can make the party that much more fun and cohesive. Start on the internet and go to Pinterest to gain some inspiration. Get decorations that go along with that theme, and also come up with a fun color scheme for all the shower decor.

2. Plan fun activities: Having a stylish party does not mean that you can’t also have some fun! Plan activities that both you and your guests can enjoy. Decorate some onesies with fabric paint and cool craft supplies, or have your guests write cute and funny messages on your baby’s diapers. Don’t forget to take lots of pictures to document all the fun.

3. Serve simple, but elegant food: When thinking about the food you want to serve your guests, plan to serve dishes that are both delicious and aesthetically pleasing. You don’t want to have messy sloppy joe sandwiches at your stylish affair. Instead, serve up some frozen yogurt cups with an array of toppings, a colorful and vibrant fruit salad, or a tray of delicious pastries.
