Decide on the date
Talk to everyone before deciding on the date. Make sure most of the guests would be able to come on the day. Especially the ones who are nearest and dearest to your friend should find the date and the time that you fix for the event, convenient. Once you fix the date and time, contact everyone again and let them know.
Decide on the refreshments and games
The baby shower will not be complete without nice refreshments and games! If you are planning to have the party in New Zealand, look for leading Auckland catering services and get quotations.
