How To Plan An Unforgettable Outdoor Baby Shower

Whether you're planning your baby shower at the park or in your backyard, outdoor baby showers are a great way to celebrate with friends and family. Don't forget to rent our tents for parties in Boca Raton for all your outdoor festivities. Tents will keep your guests cool and comfortable, especially if the party takes place in the afternoon when the sun is at its brightest. We know how stressful party planning can be, so we’ve compiled a list of everything you need to make this baby shower a success.

Send Out Invitations Early

Before sending out invitations, decide what the theme of your baby shower will be. There are so many creative ideas to choose from. Will it be balloon-themed, where you turn a balloon arch into the focal point of your shower? Or do you plan on having a fall theme as summer comes to a close? Once you know what your theme will be, you can incorporate this into your invites.

As always, make sure to send out your invitations early to give your guests enough time to plan. If you’re inviting out-of-towners, make sure they receive their invitation at least six weeks before the event.

Rent Out Your Tent

If you’re throwing an outdoor baby shower, the tent is one of the most important details to consider. You will have a lot to do leading up to the big day, so don’t leave renting your tent to the last minute. Contact Sunshine Tents & Event Rentals to secure your tent rental in Boca Raton. We offer a variety of options, including:

  • Clear tents
  • Night tents
  • Open tents
  • Tents with walls
  • Cathedral walls with a door

There's something for everyone. If you throw a lot of outdoor gatherings, skip the rental and buy your tent instead! We have many affordable options and even used tent sales in Hollywood, FL, so you can snag a great deal.

Let Your Neighbors Know

You don’t have to invite your neighbors to the baby shower, but if you’re planning it in your backyard, remember to be courteous and let them know ahead of time. A baby shower is technically a party, and as we all know, parties can get loud. By telling your neighbors about the activities beforehand, they can plan accordingly and won’t be caught off guard by the noise and limited street parking on the day of the baby shower.

Create Your Menu 

Food and beverages are often the most expensive detail. By creating a menu, you can easily stay within budget. Make sure you have options for everyone’s diet, like vegans and vegetarians. Don’t forget to label food so people know what they’re eating – that way, if anyone is allergic to one particular ingredient, they can avoid it.

Banner/Yard Sign

If you’re having the baby shower in your spacious backyard, make the occasion extra festive with a blue “it’s a boy” or pink “it’s a girl” banner.

Rent Extra Furniture 

Don’t run out of extra furniture for your guests! Make sure your guests always have a chair to sit on and a table to set their drink by renting extra folding chairs and tables. You can find all of these and more at Sunshine Tents and Event Rentals. We can provide your baby shower with high-quality chairs, linens, tables, and all the accessories and equipment necessary for your shower, like outdoor propane heaters and pedestal fans.  

Make A Great Playlist 

You may not be getting up and dancing at a baby shower, but make sure to include a great playlist to backdrop your event. Include a mix of soft and relaxing instrumentals, today's popular hits and a few clever gender reveal songs. Variety is key.

Plan For Trash 

If you’re having a small gathering, put out one trash bin where everyone can easily locate it. Don’t forget to put out a recycling bin for paper and plastic plates and utensils.
