Being asked to throw a baby (or bridal) shower is an honor because your friend or family member trusts you enough to do a fabulous job and help make their day memorable…but it can be expensive.
I recently co-hosted a baby shower for my friend Sarah. Her mom Wanda and I were able to do it in an inexpensive but really cute way. Here are some ideas you can use for a shower you might be throwing, and a lot of these ideas, even though for a baby shower, could be used for a wedding shower or even a birthday party. A lot of the items I used for decorating were things I already had, picked up at Goodwill (Sarah doesn’t mind Goodwill and bought a lot of her maternity clothes from there) or were bought from the Dollar Tree.
Hopefully this will give you some ideas for a party or shower you might be hosting in the future. Using what you already have in a different way (like the football dish), and picking up paper products and little decorations from a dollar store can really help you save money. And of course, if you’re a thrift store shopper…well, that can help you save even more.
