Lately, the mother-to-be parties are the latest trend in Kampala.A baby shower can really help you feel less overwhelmed by equipping you with a lot of what you'll need when the baby arrives.
Many people that are usually invited and those that are about to host one should have adequate information about this party, this is not the usual day to day celebrations.
Who should throw a baby shower?
It's important that a baby shower comes as an offer.A friend,co-worker relative should be able to throw this kind of celebration since it's not a normal party. Someone should be willing to organise for the mother to be. In case everyone seems busy to throw a party for you then go around and organise one. The timing is important; you want to have the party at least four to six weeks before your due date so that you'll have plenty of time to borrow or buy any necessities for your baby that you still need.
Play up to date games.
Guests should be able to position and create fun at the event. For example, someone can write down a list of traits of the yet to be born if the baby will attribute them from the mum or dad. For example, legs for dad, eyes for mum and then ask the guest to guess what the mum picked. Guests can also turn up with pictures of their childhood .
Opening gifts at the actual event is not bad but will make those that carried simple ones feel unappreciated. I guess this can happen later and also depending on your audience this process can go on and on.
It's important you treat your guests to an accessible venue.Hidden places make it worrying for some guests to attend in fear of uncertainties in case the party went until late night. Keep it close to the city centre depending on your audience.
Who do I invite?
Can I invite my Mother,grandparents, aunts, siblings, to whoever you invite it's up to you but the best idea is the people close to you? This celebration is about joy and welcoming a new life.
