Guest Feature: Sarah Tucker Shares Baby Shower Hosting Tips

Planning a baby shower can feel overwhelming - from picking a theme to keeping guests entertained, there's a lot to consider.

That's why we chatted with Sarah Tucker, lifestyle connoisseur and tablescape extraordinaire about her recent baby shower for her sister, Molly Boyd.

Below we're sharing a peek into her thoughtful, #MadeForMemories event and Sarah's best tips for showering your own mother-to-be.


Reflecting Mom's Style

The hunt for the perfect theme can leave you scratching your head. Here's a secret: skip the pre-set themes and focus on what the mama-to-be loves. In this case, Molly adored greens and blues, so the entire aesthetic revolved around those calming colors. We incorporated a classic monogram throughout the decorations, adding a touch of timeless elegance that Molly cherished.

 


Tablescape Treasures
Creating a stunning tablescape doesn't have to break the bank! Here are some budget-friendly tips:

Think "borrowed, not bought": Utilize what you or your co-hosts already have. Vintage plates, mismatched glassware - these imperfections add a unique charm!

Embrace the outdoors: Flowers and greenery clipped from your own backyard or a friend's garden can add a natural touch without the hefty price tag.

Handwritten details: Who has the most beautiful penmanship in the group? Enlist them for creating personalized place cards, adding a heartfelt touch.


A Petite Keep Twist: Interactive Fun

We incorporated Petite Keep Trunks in a delightful way – a bouquet bar! Guests were invited to create their own flower arrangements and then choose a delicious cookie as a reward.  It was a fun, interactive activity that doubled as a sweet take-home favor.


Engagement Beyond the Table
Baby shower games aren't for everyone! Here are some alternative ideas to keep guests entertained:

A Bouquet Bar: As mentioned above, this activity encourages creativity and conversation, with a gorgeous reward at the end!

A Memory Book for Baby: Leave out a beautiful children's book where guests can write personalized messages to the little one on the way.

Meaningful Transitions: A short prayer or a toast to the mom-to-be can help with the flow of the event, adding a heartwarming touch.


The Gift of Lasting Memories: Petite Keep Trunks and More!


Gifting a Petite Keep is about preserving heirlooms that will be cherished forever. Imagining Molly filling her trunk with special mementos and monogrammed treasures warms my heart!


Capturing the Joy

Photos are a fantastic way to capture the love and laughter of the baby shower. Hire a photographer or designate a few friends as the official "photo fairies" to document these precious moments.  Consider using a Petite Keep Trunk for collecting photos and special cards to revisit the joy of the occasion.



Planning a baby shower should be a joyful experience. With these tips and a focus on the mama-to-be's style, you can create a celebration filled with love, laughter, and memories that will last a lifetime!
