Are you planning a baby shower? Chances are you’ve discovered the many small yet vital details that need to be planned before the date is set on the calendar. Here’s a few of our favorite ideas to help you get organized:

Consult with the guest of honor

Sometimes, surprises don’t always go over very well. Certain details (should the shower be pre or post baby, number of guests, inviting the father or other male friends) should probably be discussed with the mom-to-be first – just to be sure.

Plan a party that she would like

Sounds simple, but don’t lose focus on who it’s actually for – try to make it something she will absolutely love and remember forever. e.g  If she’s not a fan of country music, best to leave them off the playlist, and if she’s more comfortable with smaller groups then think about having a lovely afternoon tea or a small brunch celebration with her closest friends and family.

Serve a well-rounded menu that everyone can enjoy.

Keep it easy to eat (finger or fork food is best) but not simple in design – tiny bites of something delicious are always a hit! Mocktails over cocktails are a sure-fire way to keep every guest included (and will help with the budget as well).

Keep games tasteful and uncomplicated
What may seem like harmless fun to some may embarrass or make others uncomfortable, so stay with games that are easy and include everyone. Keep it fun and lighthearted. If time is short, consider skipping the gift opening.

Choose a venue that will help make the day a surefire success!

Every mother-to-be should feel pampered, so what could be better than choosing the Marriott Syracuse Downtown for her baby shower. Our event spaces are beautiful and diverse and can adapt for any number of guests, providing the perfect luxurious surroundings to make the mother-to-be feel even more special.
