1. Go Backless

If you want to show off those curves, irrespective of others’ judgmental stare, way to go girl. Catch up with the trending dresses this season here.

2. Subtle Colours

Bright always brings out the personality more. But try subtle colours this prom season, they not only soothe the eyes, but go well with every skin tone.

3. Lace It Up

Sequencing is the story of yesterday. Lace is certainly ruling the fashion world in 2017. Go ahead with the laces and dazzle up your prom venue.

4. Sexy Slits

Who doesn’t like showing off the sassiness? Gotta make some legroom :P

5. Obviously Heels!

Coming to the footwear, you have plenty of options to choose from wedges to platform and stilettos to lots more.

6. Studded Heel Trend

Ralph and Russo are taking the heel market with a storm, with studded heels that go well with anything. Any-damn-thing! Give it a try if budget is not a constraint.

7. Nude is the New Sexy

..and No, we are not talking about the other things, but the colour, Nude! It goes perfectly with every skin tone as it blends well with the same and still highlights the personality of the one carrying it.

8. Comfort is the Priority

In the race of looking good, don’t compromise with your comfort level. Don’t go for a backless or deep neck dress if you can’t carry it with confidence. Moreover, if you are confident with your body, don’t give a second thought to the judgmental world. Just get in that dress and knock down the stereotypes baby.

9. Necklace or Earrings?

Don’t highlight your upper half with an abundance of accessory. Go with Either the earrings OR something that graces your neck. If you can’t decide between either, then make sure that a thin chain and small studs should do the job

10. For hands: One thing at a time

It’s better not to cover the whole hand with the single jewellery item, like a number of bangles or bracelets. Keep it simple by carrying a single item instead of many. Avoid the chaos!

11. Ditch the Sequenced Clutch

Avoid the abundance of glitters as well!

12. Head Held High

Coming to the top of your head, you have many options here as well. Keep a bun, clutch them in half, tie them in a pony, a loose braid on one side, or simply let them flow if it does the job for a gorgeous look Just like that.

13. Make-It-Up?

Don’t forget about the colour contrast. If your dress is light, makeup should be bright. On the other hand, if dress itself is very bright then a nude look will complement your whole appearance.

14. Defined Eyes

Whether keeping your makeup light or dark, proper highlighted eyes are must-have during a prom. Not talking about the eye-shadow here, but simple liner.

15. Either Eyes or Lips

Again, go for either of them because trust us, you don’t want to give competition to the clown in the town.

16. Safety Kit

Other than everything mentioned above, it’s always good to keep a safety kit handy with you to avoid any glitch during the event. Because, come on, this is ’The Night’ you have been waiting for, so no chance to ruin it.

Now plan everything as you expected and get ready to steal the show.

Happy Prom Night!

Best of 14 Games for Co-Ed Baby Shower

When the youngest member of the family is on its way, then nothing can be compared with the amount of happiness approaching in the lives of Mommy-to-be and Daddy-to-be. But being their best friend or favourite cousin, leaves many responsibilities on your shoulders so that you can fill their lives with more happiness and joy.

So this is your time to host a fun-filled baby shower for the couple and make their day unforgettable. Make this event amazing and host a co-ed baby shower for the couple where men and women all can take part and enjoy equally. Considering that tiny stress in your life to pull off a perfect baby shower, the experts at TheCityCollection bring the best of 14 games that can help you make that baby shower a blast. Have a look-

1. Aunt-Uncle-Made Blocks

Buy some plain and empty blocks from the market. Ask your guests to paint that small canvas that has been handed to them individually. This way, when the baby starts learning, he or she would learn it from home-made blocks, customised by its own uncles and aunts.

2. Can You Guess that Baby Food

For this game, you have to blindfold the participants and make them taste some of the awesome and terrible baby foods. The one with the most accurate answers would get the prize.

3. If You Say Baby One More Time…

It’s one of the common games during baby showers. All you need to do is hand over 5 cloth pins to the guests. Instructsthem to punish those found guilty while saying the word, “Baby”. How to punish them? Well, why do you think you were rewarded with pins in the first place? The one with most pins stuck to his or her clothes will lose for sure, and the one who would finish first by sticking all his/her pins on others, clearly wins.

4. The Midnight Delivery Preparations

Distribute baby diapers to all the guests and ask them to leave a message for the Mommy-to-be and Daddy-to-be. It could be a message that they would be discovering in the middle of the night while changing the dirty diaper.

5. Advice Book for Parents-to-be

Because, the parents-to-be need to maintain their level of optimism, you better give them a piece of advice one by one on paper. The host will hand them over to the expecting lady in the house who will read them out loud at the end of the day.

6. Guess who’s that Baby

image source: www.hollydo.blogspot.co.uk

Ask all your guests to either come with their baby pictures enveloped well or E-mail it to you in advance without disclosing the purpose to anyone. When everyone comes for the final day ceremony, ask them to guess who is in the photograph. It’s fun, try it!

7. JAM Session- Just Ask Mamma

All you need for this, some cards and pens. Ask every attendee to write a question that should be bothering the mom-to-be. Now pass it to the other person, whether sitting to your left or right or mix them all so that each one can pick up a random card. Now, whosoever picked whichever ’question containing card’, that person is supposed to answer that question, writing it on the back of that card. You all will have a good laugh

8. What’s your Story?

Here you need to create a list consisting 10 words related to babies. Include diaper, rhymes, nipple et cetera. Now create another list consisting 10 other words, have nothing to do with babies. You are free to use booze, axe, engine, and whatever comes to your mind. Now hand over the copies of these lists to the participants and ask them to draft a story using all the 20 words. The funniest story wins the game.

9. I Bet you!

Guess the delivery date of the mother-to-be and put it in a jar after folding with a mutually pre-decided amount of the bet. When the right time comes, the host will inform everyone along with the winner of all that cash.

10. Who Stole my Egg?

When people will enter the baby shower, give them an egg to keep warm and safe throughout the celebration. Instruct each of them to not leave that egg unattended at all, except when the nature calls. If the owner of an egg forgets his or her precious one somewhere or drop it by mistake, others are free to pick it up and add to his or her own egg collection. By the end of the day, the one with most of the eggs will be announced the winner.

11. Baby Bottle Chugging Race

It’s similar to beer chugging race. But here you have to replace the outer body of the beer bottle with the baby’s milk bottle and a nipple on. The least amount of the beverage coming from that tiny hole will be a true patience tester for the participants.

12. Help Her Have a Good Hair Day

Make all the girl participants sit on a chair with one male attendant. Now proceed with a hypothetical situation where the little girl is running late for her school and the mother called in sick. The daddy has to be the rescuer and give her a good hair day because no one wants to send a newborn chimp to school but a princess. Set a timer and reward the one who finishes first.

13. Baby Strolling Race

Whether it’s about running or brisk walking, the entire focus of the guests (participants) should be on winning the race with a doll kept inside the stroller. Make it interesting with barricades like chairs, wood logs, buckets, bricks, and similar stuff. Rule to win, have a tight grip.

14. Guess the Author of this Story

Ask everyone to write the funniest story from their childhood and other people will have to guess that anonymous writer and his/her naughty childhood. You can change their childhood story scenario with other scenarios in your mind. For instance, ask them to write a funny story that includes clowns.

Don’t go for all if you don’t have the guts to execute more than a dozen games in a single day. Hosting a baby shower at home is always a tough job yet satisfying. Try other satisfactory options than the home. Log on to TheCityCollection.org where all baby shower venues in London have a homelike essence to them.

Happy Baby Shower!
