The birth of a friend or family member's new child is often celebrated by a women's only party, which acts as a safe zone for the cute to come out. Attendees can indulge in adorable comments, and baby voices generally reserved for pets and young children are welcome. Baby showers are an excellent time for ladies of all types to truly let their cutesy sides (which they may have to keep in check during the workday) roam free.
If you're throwing a shower for a mom-to-be, establishing a party theme can help make the planning and execution of the event easier. After all, the less time you spend stressing about the details, the more time you'll have to relax and enjoy the festivities! Party themes don't have to be elaborate, but they will help set boundaries for the day. Since everyone loves a good polka-dot, why not use the circular pattern as a template for your shower's theme?
To get started, send out handmade or store-bought invitations that incorporate the circle design and tie the invitations shut using personalized polka-dot ribbons for an extra special touch. Decorating the event's location will be a breeze with the polka-dot theme acting as a guide - just incorporate dots into as many aspects of the decor as possible! Pre-made circle design table decorations can help to dress up the eating areas of the event and dotted streamers look great hung around the room.
Simple food ideas can incorporate the polka-dotted theme. Using a cookie cutter, cut finger sandwiches and cookies into circles for delicious treats that will be as fun to eat as they are to look at. Cupcakes are already naturally round and light blue or pink icing decorations can make them stand out even more by adding a unique and personalized dimension to the dessert.
Send guests home with dotted decor of their very own, using polka dot favor boxes to house small treats, like candies or homemade goodies, for a gift they're sure to love. Hosts can also hand out dotted purse shaped manicure sets to give attendees the opportunity to spend some quality time at home relaxing while letting their girly sides out.
