Second on the list _ A budget is the next thing to think about. Is money no object or will it be important to get the most out of every dollar. In either case you can present a lovely party for the mom to be. If more than one person is helping to pay for the shower get together and have an honest discussion about what you can afford. If one person has less money to contribute maybe they can offer their house as the place to hold the party. A lot is involved in getting ones home in top shape for entertaining. Discuss ways to stay in budget. Does someone know where to get a good discount on something that is needed? Do you enjoy crafting or baking? How can your skills contribute? When the budget is finalized check it off the list.
When setting up your checklist, the first things will be to decide on a date and to have an idea of your budget for the party. Once you know your budget, you will have a better idea of how many people you can invite. Keeping your budget in mind, create a list of people to invite. Depending on the formality of your party, you can Mail, email or simply call your guests. Make to sure to have your guests RSVP so will you know how many people will be attending the celebration.
