Today, I’m so happy to have Rachael of @livealittlenyc, sharing some great reasons to use Pinterest when planning a baby shower. Rachael is in the process of starting her own blog and I can’t wait to see it soon!
(These are some pictures from the shower I threw for my best friend since pre-school! We both used Pinterest to organize our ides for the big day, however there were a TON of ideas and crafts we weren’t able to experiment with. I plan on using these tips for the next shower I throw!)
Pinterest is one of the latest additions to the social media arena. It is great for a variety of things, including helping to plan events, such as a baby shower.
1. Invitations -An example of a search would be for baby shower invitations. You can check out trends and ideas for baby showers and adapt those ideas to suit your style and budget. Tiny Prints has a huge variety of baby shower invitations available for you to customize and fit your needs.
2. Favors – You can also search for great baby shower favors. This will show you photos of the latest and greatest favor ideas to meet every budget. One favor idea that is not very expensive is to take 5×5 pieces of white fabric and fold them intro triangles. Then add a small bag of candies (like M&M’s) in pastel colors and then fold the fabric around the bag like a diaper. Keep it together with a classic diaper pin. Just adorable!
4. Tutorials – To help you create various items you see on Pinterest, turn to YouTube. YouTube offers many helpful crafting tutorials to make sure you’re crafting correctly! In fact, this YouTube tutorial was able to teach me how to do paper pom poms!
