Whether you will have a themed baby shower or not you will still need to have a banner. Your banner will be something that should help set the shower you are throwing different from the rest. Before you start creating a baby shower banner you have to consider several things. These are the things to consider before creating your banner. Firstly, you have to check your budget for the banner and decorations. Secondly, is there someone you can borrow decorations from? Thirdly, know your available resources. Fourthly, think if you will have a themed shower or not. Lastly, check the area you have to decorate.
The step-by-step process would depend on the things that you have to consider. If you have a lot of budget of course you can have virtually endless ideas on how to create your banner. You can take advantage of any materials from thrift stores to make your banner the way you want it. Find materials which suit your pocket best. Go for materials which are averagely priced and of good quality.
If you are budget-restrained you can try borrowing materials. Maybe you know someone who recently or already held a baby shower and who knows they may have a banner you could use. These banners you could use maybe just need some retouch and will be ready again. You may just recycle or reuse old stuff.
Determine what resources are available for you. You may find some materials in your area which could be of great use in making your banner. For example there could be some native handicrafts. You may use the internet to find free designs or templates on the web which could give you a lot of ideas and could better assist you in conceptualizing your banner design. If you are going to create the banner based on your chosen design you also have to consider where to buy the materials needed or will it be possible to just gather these materials from things that you might not need anymore.
You have to decide if the shower is going to be a baby related theme or just a plain one. If you have a themed shower your banner should also be in conjunction with your theme. But if it is not a themed shower you may just opt for a simple banner as well as decorations. Just remember though that being less, simple and plain is often more.
Last but not the least, the location of the shower should also be taken in consideration. The banner could be made for an outdoor or indoor shower. An outdoor baby shower will require a sturdy material and it will cost a little more. Of course if it is an indoor shower you do not have to worry that much whether your banner could withstand the conditions of the outside environment.
Once you have this entire thing ready just follow this steps:
1. Gather your materials.
2. Think of the concept. Be artistic.
3. Seek help if needed.
4. Start building your banner. Have fun.
5. Enjoy your output and display it in a place it would snugly fit.
