5 Budget-friendly ways to throw a baby shower like a celebrity!
You don't have to spend a fortune to usher in the newest addition to your family in style! Here are some celebrity baby shower ideas you can totally steal
Have you ever envied your favorite celebrities for marking each milestone in their lives with luxurious parties? You really don’t have to because with a little creativity and ingenuity, you could totally cop their party planning skills. There’s more to a fun party than having an unlimited budget. Here are some tips to get you started!
1. Decide on a theme you love and commit to it like Beyoncé
To mark the impending arrival of her twins, the multi-Grammy award winning artist threw a tribal-themed bash or what she called the #CarterPushParty. It was strictly A-list, of course, but what’s even more impressive is how she truly committed to her chosen motif–could you expect any less from Queen Bey?
From the intricate details of her outfit, to the lush decorations of the venue and her guest’s outfits, the bash truly delivered. Do you have a theme in mind? Don’t hold back to make it happen! There are a lot of DIY ideas on the internet to inspire you. Just make sure your personality shines, no matter what!
2. Make it a sleepover like the Kardashians
In anticipation of the arrival of her second child with rapper Kanye West, Kim Kardashian brought together her family and closest friends for an all-nighter baby shower inspired by the 1989 comedy Troop Beverly Hills. The bash was complete with teepees and silk PJs! You, too, can have a sleepover at your house. Pitch tents or pillow forts, pig out, and watch scary movies. Or, you can also have a budget-friendly baby shower-slash-staycation at some of the most affordable hotels in the city!
3. Use it to help a cause you believe in like Shakira
The Grammy award winning singer and UNICEF Ambassador, who is as beautiful as she is generous, used her baby shower as a chance to pay it forward. Through UNICEF’s World Baby Shower movement, Shakira and her husband Gerard Piqué managed to raise a whopping $185,000 for the benefit of kids in need worldwide, thanks to their generous friends and fans. You, too, could give back in your own way by choosing to have a baby shower in, let’s say, an orphanage or animal shelter. It’s not the amount, but the genuine act of giving back that truly matters!
4. Pamper guests like they’re preggy, too, like Kaley Cuoco
The comedic actress rose to fame as the charming, quirky girl-next-door on the Big Bang Theory. As it turns out, she’s just as adorable in real life. She’s fond of throwing lavish parties to mark the milestones of those closest to her. Back in 2014, she threw her make-up artist Jamie Greenberg a spa-themed baby shower and luncheon, complete with luxurious massages, mocktails, and a delicious coffee cake!
If you’re on a budget and can’t exactly treat everyone to a spa day, you can always narrow down your guest list and check out spas that are right to your budget in your area. What’s great about the Philippines is that you don’t have to break the bank to have a luxurious spa experience! There are even spa treatments you can enjoy for less than P1,000!
5. Make it a party and cheat day in one like Chrissy Teigen!
When model Chrissy Teigen was expecting her first child with John Legend, her close friends, the Kardashian sisters, decided to throw her a baby shower she’d actually enjoy. Chrissy’s been loved by many for her humor, candor, and laid-back attitude so it’s no wonder her close friends decided a simple intimate bash is their best bet! So, they had Mcdonald’s and Taco Bell for breakfast. They also brought in a photo booth with flattering lighting and voila! It became an unforgettable, intimate morning.
Copy Chrissy’s bash by indulging yourself and your friends in some comfort food, whatever your definition of that may be! Have it in your very own home and take as many selfies as you can to mark the occasion and you’re all set!
