Baby Shower – Some of the Key Trends for 2019

When I was pregnant with my 2 children (12 and 14), no one really did baby shower parties.  However, they are so popular these days.  Everybody, seems to have a baby shower party or a gender reveal party.   As a newborn photographer, I meet a lot of newborns and I often hear stories of my clients baby shower parties that they had.  So with the rise in popularity, what are the trends for 2019.

The biggest trend for this year, is balloons – not just a couple, but big balloon arches!! Or even names spelt out of balloons.  At the weekend, celelbrity, Gemma Atkinson had her baby shower party, and balloons played a big part of the decor.  Check out the story with pictures at Hello magazine. Hobbycraft have a good selection of balloons at a reasonable price.








2. Vintage Chic
