Private Catering for a Baby Shower
Catering a Baby Shower Provides the Organizers Time to Host and Socialize
While there are several reasons or special occasions for families and/or friends to gather in celebration, few events in life are as precious as the birth of child. The new parents are as proud as proud can be, grandparents have a bounce in their step and seem to be walking on air, and other family members and close friends all want to see the baby.
Amid all of the announcements, Facebook photos, and cards of congratulations, it is also common for relatives to celebrate the arrival of their newest family member by planning a baby shower. And in many cases, such an event will be held in a private home, as this is more amenable to social interactions and less restricting in many ways than a public restaurant, and less expensive than a rental venue.
For those planning a baby shower, including grandmothers, aunts, in-laws, and perhaps the new mother herself, there are many aspects that need to be organized, confirmed, and/or completed prior to the event. Such advance coordination/activities would include decisions relating to:
- Date, time, location
- Guest list and invitations
- Theme and party decorations
- Entertainment and door prizes
- Menu choices and refreshments
- Serviceware, linens, clean-up, etc.
In the case of many baby showers, these party planners will spend the days immediately prior to the celebratory event engrossed in purchasing and preparing the menu items, which will in turn often be followed by several hours in the kitchen before and during the baby shower itself. This level of commitment, so to speak, although by choice, can place a significant amount of stress on the organizers, not to mention the fact that they do not have much time to interact with their guests nor enjoy the event themselves.
One way to alleviate this hectic set of circumstances would be to contract a professional event catering service, such as Ida’s Kitchen.
