A baby shower is one of the more special traditions for you, and for everyone you love to express their love for both the new parents and the incoming newborn. It’s a time for friends and family to share time with the expectant parents and to “shower” them with gifts, love, and good wishes before birth.
At Deer Creek Golf Club, we love to be a part of the special moments in your life. We host numerous special events to ring in the core moments of life. In one of South Florida’s best-kept secrets, Deerfield Beach, location is one of the elements that make it an ideal choice for those looking to hold private events. One of those special moments may be a baby shower. Let’s take a look at why one would throw a baby shower, and how to make yours dazzle.
Why Throw a Baby Shower
A baby shower can ease some due date stress by surrounding the neo-parents with the people they love. A baby shower brings together the couple’s closest friends and family to celebrate something special. Babies require a lot of time and attention when they finally arrive. And while you’re juggling how to welcome the newborn into the world, it’s important to take a moment and appreciate the beauty of a new life. Plus, a couple of extra household items from your loved ones can ease some financial stress as well.
If you’re going to have a baby shower, our recommendation is to find a separate location to throw your party. That will help it feel like an important event, while getting the parents-to-be out of their element and letting them relax. While any park or residence will do, you don’t want to feel cramped, and you don’t want to feel like you’re intruding on others. That is why renting out a private space to throw a baby shower makes the most sense.
We have private rooms with beautiful arched windows and crystal chandeliers at Deer Creek Golf Club. With views of a championship golf course in the distance, our ballrooms are a perfect location for glamor and fun. Our baby shower venue is the ideal destination to gather for your special day.
Fun Baby Shower Ideas
Pick a Baby Shower Theme
It’s always fun to throw a themed party. Whether it’s a favorite book, movie, or sports team, find something that brought the happy couple together, and build your decorations and activities around it.
One of the biggest rackets in the newborn game is diapers. In this activity, people bring in packs of diapers to enter a raffle for a prize. Somebody will leave with a reward, and the parents will go home with four months worth of diapers postpartum.
A Keepsake Guestbook
If you want to make sure you keep track of all who can make it to your party but want something unique for all to sign, get a little artsy and create a keepsake guest book. That is a fun baby shower idea that takes a little bit of extra work, but the payoff is worth it. Have your guests sign a canvas, a wooden letter of your initials, or a onesie. It is the perfect reminder of the phenomenal time you had with your loved ones and how much they care for you and the incoming baby.
