How to Plan a NEAT Shower
Recently, both founders of NEAT Method hosted baby showers and they were just too perfectly planned not to share! When planning for a shower, these NEAT girls realized that all it takes is some good planning and a little help from "friends". Things turned out so well, we just had to share with you what all they learned!
Tip #1 :: 'Pin'point your goals
Obviously this is nothing you don't already know, but putting together a plan on Pinterest is where it's at! Consider making a hidden board to keep all of your secrets safe from the guest(s) of honor. Once your Pinterest board is put together, make a 'To Do' list that entails everything that you will need for the big event: food, decor, activities, gifts, etc.
Tip #2 :: It takes a village…
The best baby showers are not planned by one, it takes a village – LITERALLY! Ashley had the help of a dear friend in New York and the Grandmother-to-be. Molly had her sister and Mom to help her spoil their sister-in-law. Case in point, Molly's sister came up with these adorable waffle shooters and these ombre, ruffled curtains were handsewn by her Mom!
Tip #3 :: Know your limits
Some of us are DIY experts and others of us are not. This cake was a must at the shower Molly helped host, but no one could make something nearly as beautiful. Ashley fell in love with the "bebe" sign but knew it wouldn't look nearly as good making it on her own. Here are a few small businesses that they loved to use during the party planning:
Bebe Sign :: Create A Beautiful Life
Eiffel Tower :: RHbaby
Monogram :: Polka Dots MG
Ombre Cake :: Sugar Bloom Bake Shop
We hope you have been inspired to make your next event one that your guests will never forget!
