Expecting? Be Inspired By This Mom-To-Be's All-Pink Baby Shower That Guests Raved About!

Baby showers are definitely one of the most exciting things to look forward to for mommies nearing their due dates!

They're a great excuse to gather friends and family, get dolled up for the cameras, and have everyone gush about how beautiful you look, but hang on a second—how do you make sure that things are just as fun for your guests as it is for you?

After all, baby showers are still parties, and everyone in attendance deseves to have a good time!

Proud parents Gem Co and Enzo Lugtu faced this exact conundrum—yet still managed to throw one of the most stylish baby showers we've ever seen!—so take your cue for them.

 

Keep on reading to see what they had in store on the special day!

First, have a plan

Gem (who wore a lovely floral cocktail dress for the baby shower) and Enzo chose to combine their baby shower and gender reveal party—the latter of which has gained popularity with parents in the last months. 

Having a purpose behind a party makes it easier overall to decide on a theme (and dress code should you want one), plan a program, and figure out how to keep guests entertained overall.

Next, decide on the activities

Although baby showers are essentially get-togethers for grown-ups who can be perfectly content chatting and catching up over cocktails, having a program in mind definitely shakes things up, and in a good way.

Gem and Enzo had a few aces up their sleeves in this department by being ready with games that had guests on their feet and laughing out loud at several points in the day! As an extra tip, plan games and other activities that involve both men and women can participate in; it's a misconception to think that baby showers are only enjoyed by women and that men simply sit back and watch events unfold!

Third, involve your family and friends 

In the case of baby showers, family and friends don't have to be just guests; they can be involved in the planning process too and that can even make things more fun!

Gem enlisted the help of her sister, who organized the event. Two of her besties Kim and Boop Yap also helped out; the Yap sisters also happen to be in-demand fashion stylists and experts at party-throwing.

Fourth, make it a family affair

A baby shower may put emphasis on the mom and dad expecting a little one, but that doesn't mean other family members can't be in the spotlight too by sharing their talents at the event. At the very least, reserve some time to spend with the family and take lots of photos with them; these are the occasions when memories are made!

Take Gem's sister, Nicole, who played co-host for the day! It's awesome time to bond with the fam and get them to be part of this special time in a mom or mom-to-be's life.

Last but not the least, choose an ultimate highlight

Some people like to invest in catering, others want their photos and videos from the day to be taken by the industry's best; for Gem and Enzo, they prioritized beautifying the party space and picked the one and only Gideon Hermosa to design the venue at Makati Diamond Residences, where Kimi Yap also had her ting hun.

Done in all pink to celebrate the coming arrival of this couple's daughter, the room made everyone feel like they had stepped inside the center of a rose, or fallen straight into the puffy middle of a sweet strawberry cupcake. It was cute yet classy, fun yet sophisticated—a huge win for those who documented the day on social media!
