Make Your Baby Shower Unique
1. Choose the Type of Party
Baby showers have been a special way to celebrate expecting parents and the new addition to the family for a long time, but here are a few ways to make your shower more unique!
mean that the dad gets to be involved too! You can also invite kids for a more casual event.
A Baby Brunch
What’s better than mom-osas and breakfast foods with friends or family!?
is held for parents who aren’t having their first baby. It’s a way to celebrate the mom-to-be with a get together, but not necessarily the expectations of a shower. Since parents often have much of what they need for the baby already, ___
A Sip & See
is held after the baby arrives! It’s a way for friends and family to stop by for a drink and to see the baby! Everyone comes during a set time period to make it easy on the new parents.
Long Distance Shower
can be held in many ways, but an idea I heard recently was to pick a day or week and have everyone send a note of encouragement or gift to the parents-to-be at that time. What’s better than getting mail that’s personal and special?! They will be surprised when they open the mailbox and see so many little notes and gifts.
Gender reveals are a great reason to celebrate with friends and family while finding out the gender of your baby. There are an endless number of ways to announce the gender, from gender reveal cakes and cupcakes to popping balloons filled with pink or blue confetti.
2. Pick a Personalized Theme
Baby shower themes have become much less traditional and more focused on the parents-to-be! Pastel “baby colors” are much less common and fun, personalized themes are in! These days, it seems that any party theme can be used for a baby shower theme, which opens up the options for food and desserts, games and favors. Here are a few popular themes that we’ve seen for baby showers recently:
A great way to create a casual atmosphere and is very fitting for a couple’s shower theme as well. You can serve BBQ or make it a cookout with festive drinks and games!
“Taco ‘bout a Baby” Fiesta
Fiestas are a great time for tacos and margaritas as well as bright, colorful decorations and games.
Simple rustic styles with woodland animals, plaid and tree stumps have been popular themes for the past year or so. It’s a theme that can work for a baby boy, girl or a surprise which makes it very versatile.
