Party Supply Rentals For The Perfect Baby Shower

If you have the honor of throwing a baby shower for a friend or relative, you'll need to think about all of the party supplies you'll need to make the venue look great for this special day. Use this guide to find the right party supply rentals for a perfect baby shower.

Mom's Chair

The mother-to-be is the special guest of this event, and it's important to keep her comfortable throughout the party. Choose an elegant sofa or chair rental from your local party supply company, and give her a place she can sit at during games, gift opening, and other parts of the special day. The chair should be placed at the head of the room, and it should have tables on either side to hold snacks, beverages, and baby gifts. Consider creating a balloon arch behind the chair to make the place of honor look even more festive.

Color-Coordinated Tables And Chairs

When it comes to choosing a color theme for the baby shower, you have several options available. You can choose blue or pink if you know the gender of the baby, or you can select the colors that the parents will be using in the baby's nursery. Select tablecloths in one shade for all of the tables at the event, and select chair covers in a contrasting shade to make the room look beautiful. You can sometimes rent the tablecloths and chair covers from the same place you rent the chairs for the event, and in some cases, you may even be able to rent blue or pink chairs that need no covers. If there will be a gender-reveal component of the party, consider using pink tablecloths and chair covers at half of the tables, and blue for the other half. The people sitting at the "winning" color can win a special dessert or small party favor.

Carnival Games

Baby showers sometimes feature games guests can play to win door prizes, but you might not have time to create them on your own. You can rent carnival games and adapt them to fit the theme of the party. For example, you can rent a ring toss game and set the rules so that the only winners are the ones who land a ring around a blue peg if the baby will be a boy or a red peg if the baby will be a girl. This idea can also be used with dart games, which require players to pop a balloon with a dart. Only the correct pink or blue color would be a winner. These games bring fun to the party without having to create game pieces and rules from scratch.

Talk to the mom-to-be to get her input, and then visit a local party supply rental store, like B & T Rents, to get the right rental chairs, tablecloths, and games to make her day one that she'll always remember.
