It's customary to throw a baby shower for a friend or family member who is having a new baby. Baby showers can get expensive, so consider purchasing some of the items you need in bulk, or wholesale, so you can save on costs. Many items needed for a baby shower, such as decorations and favours, can be found online or in stores that sell large quantities.
Purchase your baby shower decorations in bulk from a wholesale supplier. For example, if you will be placing vases filled with flowers in the space and on the tables, choose blue or pink vases from a wholesaler. Choose other common baby shower decorations, such as stuffed animals. Purchase plenty of blue or pink ribbon that you can use to make bows for the chairs, for the corners of tables and for wreaths.
Not only are diapers useful for the mother-to-be, you can even use diapers in your decorations. Purchase a large number of diapers and roll them into tube shapes. Place the diapers in layers on a large cake platter and make a diaper cake. Secure each layer of the diaper cake with a long piece of ribbon. You can also take small baby items, like rattles and bibs, and stick them between the diapers and the layers. When the party is over, the mother can take the diaper cake home with her and use the diapers.
You will need plenty of things for your tables and to go with the foods you serve at a baby shower. Choose your table cloths in bulk from a wholesale supplier. If you are using disposable plates, napkins and cutlery, you can also purchase those in bulk. Choose plates and napkins that match your baby shower's theme, or that are simply blue or pink to coordinate with the baby's gender, if the mother knows what it will be.
It might seem unusual, but you can even purchase food wholesale from some stores. Large stores like Costco or Sam's Club have large food sections in addition to the other things that they sell. Depending on what you will be serving at the party, you can find lots of items in bulk. For example, choose a large container of mixed nuts, a large amount of freshly baked cookies or pastries, a large jar of salsa or big bags of chips.
It's a nice idea to give favours to the people who attend the baby shower. Choose your favours from a wholesale supplier so you can save a bit of money. For example, choose small decorative boxes you can fill with candies or tea towels printed with a cute design. You could also give all the guests small tote bags filled with miniature bottles of lotion, body wash and other spa items.
