A Guide to Hosting a Baby Shower with Mademoiselle Macaron

Written by Ailish Hamilton

Ah, the baby shower! A time to celebrate the impending arrival of a precious little one, to shower the mother-to-be with love and laughter. But for the hostess, the task of orchestrating such an event can feel daunting. Fear not, mes amies! With a touch of Parisian flair and a sprinkle of Mademoiselle Macaron's magic, you can transform your baby shower into an unforgettable afternoon of elegance and delight.

1. Choose a Theme: Start by selecting a theme that reflects the parents' style and preferences. Will it be a whimsical garden soiree adorned with soft florals and pastel hues? Whatever you choose, having a cohesive theme will guide your decorations, invitations, and overall ambiance. From our Rainbow macarons to our Pastel selection, we have a palette for any theme.  


2. Create a Guest List: Determine the number of guests you want to invite and create a guest list. Gather your nearest and dearest, the friends and family who will shower the mother-to-be with love!

3. Select the Perfect Venue: Consider the size of your chosen venue and the level of intimacy desired. This could be the parents' home, a friend's house, a local restaurant, or a rented event space. Choose a venue that complements your theme and provides ample space for your guests to mingle.

4. Send Invitations: Design and send out invitations well in advance. Don't forget to include all the essential details, RSVP information, and of course, a hint of the delectable delights that await your guests. Consider digital invitations for a more eco-friendly and convenient option. Or, do it in style with our macaron favour boxes!

5. Decorate with Style: Transform your chosen venue with decorations that complement your chosen theme. Incorporate banners, balloons, and table centrepieces to create an inviting and festive setting. Personalised touches such as photos, baby clothes, or ultrasound images add a sentimental touch. Our macaron towers make the perfect addition to any event and is sure to be a talking point. 

 

6. Plan Fun Games and Activities: Keep guests entertained with baby shower games and activities, like a "guess the baby food" blind taste test, a "decorate the onesie" competition, or baby bingo. Guessing games about the baby's arrival date and gender are always crowd-pleasers.

7. Organize a Sweet Treat: Forgo the ordinary and embrace the extraordinary with Mademoiselle Macaron's exquisite creations. Imagine a cascading tower of macarons, colours to match your theme, bursting with an array of tempting flavours such as a selection of our Classic macarons or opt for a Pink or Blue Ombré tower.


8. Arrange for a Thoughtful Gift Table: Set up a designated area for guests to leave their gifts. Encourage a registry or provide suggestions for practical and thoughtful items that will ease her transition into motherhood. Remember, even small, heartfelt gifts can be incredibly meaningful.

9. Capture the Memories: Hire a photographer or designate a charming corner for photos, complete with fun props and a beautiful backdrop. Encourage guests to capture precious moments throughout the day, creating a visual scrapbook of laughter, love, and anticipation. With our Personalised Macarons you can have your wonderful day printed onto our macarons, for you, your guests, or perhaps to gift someone who couldn't make the event; allowing them to share in the memories and enjoy a delicious treat!

10. Show Gratitude with Favours: As your guests depart, send them home with a delightful reminder of the day's magic. Mademoiselle Macaron's exquisite gift boxes and small favours, adorned with ribbons and filled with an assortment of their delectable macarons, are the perfect token of appreciation. These charming boxes will not only tantalise the taste buds but also serve as a reminder of the elegant and joyous celebration they attended. 

So, mes chéris, with these simple touches of Parisian flair and the magic of Mademoiselle Macaron, you can transform your baby shower into an unforgettable afternoon of love, laughter, and exquisite sweetness.
