During my third trimester, my family threw the most beautiful and happening baby shower for me and my baby. It was definitely a day I would never forget.. After reading this post, I am sure all moms to be will start planning their baby shower this way. Yes, it was a little ‘LOG KYA KAHENGE’ type of party. But, I always wanted it this way and I am so happy that it turned out being so amazing and successful.
So, lets begin!
Theme: I always wished for a very non traditional, western and a modern baby shower, more of a fun party. I knew I wanted a very different theme. Because it was summers, so we chose it to be A SUNDOWNER PARTY. We planned it on a Sunday so that we could start early by 5pm and get back home well in time.(This didn’t happen fortunately😜)
Dress code: Well! Sundowner means comfort. So there was no need for a dress code. But still we chose it to be ALL WHITE. It looked so picturesque. Everyone was in white while people from the family wore pinks and blues. I chose to wear a beautiful baby pink gown by Vaunt Designer Clothing and Avinash wore this baby blue suit by Vasnam.
Venue: The venue of the party was VUE in Paradise hotel, Jaipur. This place is perfect to host a Sundowner party. It is a rooftop lounge and has that perfect and mesmerising sunset view. They have a well trained and friendly staff, especially the bartender; and their food is amazing.
Food: No one wants to gorge on heavy food so early, so we chose to keep bite sized and finger food for starters. Pizzas, Quesadillas, jalepeno poppers and grilled paneer were some of them. The best part was that all our guests were munching on these till the very end. Later, we ended the party with a proper dinner also.
Drinks: These were the highlights of our party. We started with very light and summery drinks like wine, sangrias, beer, margaritas and fruit based mocktails. They were served with a delicious cheese platter. I was munching on the cheeses till the end of the party (#pregnancycravings)…Later, everyone hopped to the actual bar😜
Decoration: Me and Avinash wanted to invest less in decorations as venue itself is so beautiful. So, we just bought some balloons and baby banners from Party Hunters, Jaipur. We also made a photobooth for some fun.
Giveaways: This was my favourite part. Just like our theme, I wanted the giveaway to be very different. So, we made a hamper containing Cookies (by Brown Sugar Jaipur) and BABY MAKING POTION. Actually, we put this sticker on a Vodka bottle. How cool is that!
I am so happy that everything turned out absolutely perfect, it felt surreal. And I am so so thankful to our tribe of friends who came up to celebrate our miracle. Lots of love to everyone..
