It is often the little things that are the difference between a good baby shower and a great one. Saving some time for the soon to be parents by getting the guests to address their own Thank You cards might not sound like a big deal. But when you consider how much they have going on with a baby coming it will be much appreciated.
Help out the very busy mom and dad to be, by having the guests fill out their address on the Thank You cards at the baby shower.
The Setup: Check with the mother-to-be to see she if she has already purchased Thank You cards for the baby shower. If she has get them from her, if not buy a nice set of Thank You cards. Write the return address for the parents on the envelope, put the cards inside and stack them on a table with a bowl and a few pens.
The Rules: As the guests arrive ask them to write their address on one of the envelopes and put it in the bowl. At the end of the baby shower put a stamp on each of the envelopes that has been filled out, tie a ribbon around them and give them to the mother-to-be. It is the gift that keeps on giving after the shower since it saves future time and hassle.
Give a Door Prize (optional): Once all of the guests have addressed an envelope and put it in the bowl, mix them up and draw one from the bowl. Give the guest who’s envelope you selected a door prize!
