Baby showers are a fun celebration with your friends, family and loved ones to celebrate the imminent arrival of a new baby. Some people use their baby shower as being the perfect way to have a gender reveal, so they can have a two-in-one party, with fun guessing games for the guests to see whom can guess the right gender of the baby.
It’s a great way to celebrate the happy news with your loved ones, but it can be a little stressful trying to organise a baby shower, especially if you’re pregnant, so usually the best friend of the mum-to-be will be in charge of the organisation, and you can even decide to do a surprise baby shower for the expectant mother.
The guest list is of course very important, and it’s a nice way for the families on both sides of the couple to meet each other if they haven’t already. Most baby showers will have a theme, so it’s important to choose your theme early on, so guests can plan in advance if there’s a colour themed dress code depending on the gender of the baby, or if there’s a more general theme.
It’s easy to get carried away when planning a baby shower, so before you start any planning, ensure you’ve set a budget, and try and stick to it. You don’t have to spend a fortune to have a memorable baby shower, and it’s nice to involve the guests in the planning process of the party.
No baby shower would be complete without some fun baby shower games to enjoy, with there being so much choice. Many of the games can be themed around the baby, but again, it’s also a good bonding experience for everyone, and it’s a way to make the baby shower as fun as possible.
Baby showers are a good opportunity to show your love and support for the soon-to-be parents, but they’re also a lovely chance to gift the expectant parents with items they’ll need for baby, and baby shower gifts tend to be baby clothes, toys, or items guests loved using with their own babies, which is a nice personal gift idea for a baby shower.
