As you know, we are very frugal parents, so we decided to celebrate a simple, easy, low budget baby shower.

Here are some of the tips for a simple yet fun celebration, may it be birthdays, anniversaries, or a baby shower.

DIY. Yes, DIY it is!

Decorate using easy cut-outs with some ready and accessible stuff at your home. Stuff toys are a great way to add a baby theme feels. Add balloons, and voila! 😉


Serve some home-cooked meals for the guests.

This might take quite of your time, but serving easy to prepare meals are guaranteed you’ll save a lot as compared to buying pre-cooked food or ordering from catering services.

After all, you can also serve easy finger food meals.



Edible baby shower souvenirs are great!

We used Hershey’s chocolate for our baby gender reveal idea as well as a baby shower favor. The letters “HE” revealed that it’s a boy!IMG_2107

Do it at home! It’s way cheaper than hiring a venue plus the fact that the time will not be limited.





Nothing compares to having fun at the comfort of your home. 


Make fun activities for the guests.

We printed out some “baby wishes forms” for our friends to fill out. IMG_2071

Putting up a board for baby name suggestion is also a perfect idea!

Especially for those couples who haven’t finalized the name yet.  Like us!IMG_2008


It was a great activity to get everyone busy!






These were some of the names suggested. Unfortunately, none of them got it right! heheIMG_2138
