Have A Dollar Store Baby Shower

Have A Dollar Store Baby Shower
  • Opening Intro -

    So your older sister is having a baby later this year and you want to give her a fun and memorable baby shower.

    You've been to websites such as Pinterest to gather ideas and you found a theme that suits her personality.


The problem is that you’re on a tight budget and you can’t afford those expensive decorations. You also know that baby shower food can get pricey depending on the number of guests you’re inviting.

Don’t worry, because it’s possible to pull off a frugal and fun baby shower with items from the dollar store.

Choose a Workable Theme

If you’re going to get most of your baby shower supplies from the dollar store, you need to have a workable theme.

At the dollar store you’ll find all kinds of themes that would work for the guest of honor such as comic book heroes, Disney characters, floral themes, gender-specific themes such as princesses or toy trucks, or movie based themes.

The good thing about using the dollar store to plan a shower is that you don’t have to spend so much time finding items for an obscure theme.

Get Creative With Dollar Store Foods

This is a great time to experiment with inexpensive foods.

Keep in mind that a pregnant woman’s dietary restrictions might keep her from eating certain foods. For example, many doctors do not recommend canned fish for pregnant women due to the high levels of mercury in it.

Most dollar stores sell crackers, so you can purchase boxes of crackers in bulk and use staples in your pantry to create dishes for the crackers.

Another idea is to buy canned vegetables and make pasta salad for the shower. Buy some cookies in bulk and make homemade glazed icing to put on them. Buy soft drinks in bulk and prepare non alcoholic cocktails.

Buy Craft Supplies

You can also save money on the baby shower by purchasing craft supplies at the dollar store.

Buy bottles of glitter, Sharpie markers, inexpensive colored gift bags for favors, wrapping paper and stationery to decorate the room where the shower will be held.

You can also buy a bulletin board at the dollar store and use it as a sign-in book for the guests when they arrive at the shower. Decorate the bulletin board with colorful flower petals, beads, stenciled designs and bows.

Purchase Inexpensive Electronics

Some dollar stores sell digital and non-digital cameras, so you should get a camera if you’ll be taking plenty of pictures at the baby shower. By doing this, you’re not spending a ton of money to capture baby shower memories.

Dollar stores also carry iTunes and Google Play for music lovers, so you can use these to download new songs found on iTunes.

In conclusion, planning a baby shower doesn’t have to be expensive. When you utilize the dollar store, you’ll have everything you need to celebrate the arrival of a new life.
