30th birthday party and a baby shower

by Missy

(South Pasadena, Ca)

Ok so the expecting mother has asked for help in putting together her 30th bday celebration and her baby shower. It will be on the same day but the ealry afternoon is for the baby and the evening is for the bday celebration. Money is tight so any ideas of what theme we could use for both celebrations? Centerpieces that can be used universally? Please help. Any ideas would be appreciated

This is a tough one…

I personally think it would have been a good idea to have the b-day party and baby shower all in one. This would have been easier for everyone involved. But, since they will be 2 separate celebrations, I would choose a theme that could be suitable for both. Maybe the “diva or girlfriends” theme, or something “luau” or “safari” party if it’s co-ed.

For whatever theme you choose, use the same decorations for both parties, but just add some baby stuff for the shower – baby balloon bouquets, a diaper cake instead of an edible cake, and give away themed party favors. To save money, do not give away party favors for the b-day party, especially if you are having the same guest list for both. Your guests don’t need 2 party favors.

If you still have time, I would strongly suggest that you consider have both parties in one. That way, your guests wont have to be out for 2 occasions on the same day, and you (whoever is hosting) will not have to worry about throwing 2 parties in the same day. I think it would just be a lot easier.
