Having a baby shower can be a fun experience, and having one at brunch makes it easy and relaxing as well. A brunch baby shower has numerous advantages. One advantage is that brunch is one of the prettiest times of day, and good weather can help lighten the mood of the baby shower. There are also a variety of creative things you can do for a shower at brunch that make the party memorable.
Sending out cute or fun invitations can set the mood for the entire party. For a baby shower at brunch, some good invitation ideas are to use bright colors and make up a catchy slogan like "Rise and Shine." Don't forget to include the time and place of the shower on the invitation so nobody gets lost or is too late.
One good idea for a baby shower at brunch is to use creative decorations to impart a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Usually brunch is a casual affair, so keep the decorations casual by using single sunflowers in simple vases or even garden pots as table centerpieces. Another decorating idea is to use bright colors for your tablecloths and linens, and everyday clear glassware that makes guests feel right at home.
Some baby showers include fun games for everyone to play for entertainment. One good idea for a baby shower game is to break out the croquet sets on the lawn. Croquet is a relaxing game that can be played at a slow pace, perfect for talking and sipping mimosas. One other game to play at a brunch baby shower would be "Guess Mommy's Size." Have all of your guests take strings and cut them down to the length they think would wrap most comfortably around the expectant mother. The guest with the correct string size wins.
For a brunch baby shower, both drinks and food need to be delicious, light and fun. Some good ideas for drinks are classic mimosas, fun lemon drop martinis and virgin frozen daiquiris for those who don't drink. Good ideas for food include egg-white omelets with spinach, mushroom and creamy cheese filling, mini spicy chicken and cheese quesadillas, summer salads with fresh fruit or lemon pound cake. All of these options can help make guests more comfortable at the party, and are nice options to relax with.
