Tips to Plan a Remarkable Baby Shower Party


When it comes to life’s biggest events, you don’t get much bigger than the birth of a baby. Parents traditionally in the Arab world hold a “baby welcoming” celebration after the baby is born and it is called “Mubarahah” or “Aqiqah”. Nowadays, these celebrations have changed regarding name, timing and the overall fashion like decorations and food. Moreover, it is sometimes been held by the help of a specialized party planner. In addition, sometimes it is done in “theme” style too.

We will give you some useful ideas to plan your own unique and non-forgettable baby welcoming or baby shower party. We strongly recommend that you start preparing for this party several weeks before your due date, so you can enjoy it before you get very exhausted.


You can decorate your room at the hospital as long as you are planning to stay there, and to reduce costs, you can bring it back home with you. Choose a good quality decoration to be able to do so without ruining it.

There is a variety of choices around, and if you have already decided the name of your new coming baby, you can pre-order personalized with name decorations, for example:

تزيين مدخل غرفة الولادة او مدخل البيت لمباركة المولود الجديد مخصص بالاسم
Custom baby name door entrance decoration

Balloons arranged in baby shapes with blue hues for boys and pink hues for girls, could be placed around the door, dangling from ceiling or as a stand. It is a perfect decoration for baby shower party at home or for welcoming decoration at hospital room as well.

You can also buy “it’s a boy” or “it’s a girl” printed balloons, or shaped balloons like baby bottle or pacifier balloons. Another low cost decoration idea is to use tulle fabric in a suitable color and form arches to decorate around baby’s bed and mommy’s bed.

Arranged flowers with matching colors also is a great idea to fresh up the whole thing:

Just make sure to visit the hospital prior to your due date and figure out how much space do you have and if possible, take some photos around and attach them with your order if you are planning to order newborn decorations from makers on Ribbonat market

Food & treatments:

This is a personal choice. People in some Arab countries traditionally serve ice cream in summer and Caraway pudding in winter. However, people nowadays serve decorated cakes, cupcakes, cake pops, marshmallow sticks and so on.

Giveaways, souvenirs and chocolate:

Usually, each guest gets a piece of chocolate creatively wrapped and sometimes a meaningful simple gift or souvenir. Very attractive ideas and shapes are now present in the market like CDs, small Mushafs, little toys and crochet pieces. Keep in mind to add your personal touch because it shows the real you and how much you care.

Be smart and on budget:

Finally, if you have a limited budget, then you can choose whatever you like from the above suggestion in a smart selective way. For example, if you would like to decorate with balloons, you can order a smaller version of the original one, and for other decorations, you can order a smaller size or with a low cost material. As for chocolate, order types with cheaper fillings like coconut and creams instead of nuts or dried fruits, keeping the same appearance. Some hospitals offer free photo session. Ask for and order them if available.
