Hiring Professional Talent for a Baby Shower
The baby showers of today have come a long way from the intimate,
home-based gatherings of family members and friends they once were.
While getting together with those closest to the mother-to-be or the new
mother is still the primary reason for having a baby shower, oftentimes,
there's much more involved.
What Type of Professional Talent can be Hired for a Baby Shower?
Well for today's baby showers, anything goes. Caterers, cake
decorators, interior decorators, musicians, magicians, photographers,
bartenders, servers, rental agencies, planners, calligraphers, printers,
activities coordinators and others can all play a role in putting
together a memorable baby shower event.
Tips for Hiring Talent for a Baby Shower
How much the host will spend on each aspect of the baby shower is something that should be determined well in advance, ideally at the time the plans for the shower are being put together. And while hiring professional help means that the host won't have to tend to the tasks herself, she will need to work closely with the talent to ensure she gets exactly what she's paying for.
Yes, it's easy to open the yellow pages phone book and call someone
from the appropriate category, but getting referrals from others who
have actually used the talent previously is usually a more reliable
approach. Word of mouth is a powerful force and people are quick to tell
others about their bad experiences as well as their good. Those with
solid reputations are usually going to cost more and they're the ones
who are going to get booked far in advance, too.
