Memorable and Unique Baby Shower Ideas Hosting a baby shower to welcome the pending arrival of someone close to you? Are you tired of playing the same games and seeing the same themes over and over again? Well, luckily these days there are plenty of creative ideas to help you plan something that will make your older relatives say "I wish theyd have done that in my day!" Make Room for Daddy First of all, its no longer necessary to quarantine baby showers to adult women only. Fathers are more involved in the birth and child care of their babies, so why not have the guys there for the fun? Child care isnt just a womans job anymore. In the old days, men werent even allowed in the delivery room. Everything baby-related was "womens business", no wonder why they were excluded from the shower. Today, more baby showers are including the friends and family of the expecting parents, including the guys and kids. Kid-friendly showers are also becoming more popular. Put out a few crafts or coloring books for the kiddies to help entertain them. For the guys, encourage them to bring something for "daddy". Daddy "tool belts" or "kits" are popular. Also, Daddy Diaper Showers are a hit. If the guys in your life want their own party, let them! Have some snacks and games for the guys separately, why not? Have a little game of blindfolded "Pin the Diaper on the Balloon" for a really fun time. You can even wait until after the baby is born and host a "See and Sip". This is much like an open house where couples come and mingle, just like a cocktail party, but bring gifts and see the new baby! Whoooo Wants to be on Your Nursery Wall? If ducks and bears are your thing, fine. But there are some other creatures that are gracing the walls of the nursery these days. Owls are all the rage. And its easy to see why, theyre cute! Owls have made their way to the baby shower scene as well. Everything from the invitations and paper goods to the guest books and favors are now easily found with these guys. Mother Goose A fun and interactive baby shower idea involves each guest bringing the baby a copy of their favorite childhood storybook. This helps mom and dad to build up their soon to be much needed library of bedtime stories. They can also bring a gift associated with the theme of the book like perhaps a stuffed white rabbit for "Alice in Wonderland". Just a Sprinkle Showers arent just for first-time mothers anymore. The second or third (and so on) child is just as important as the first one. Why not celebrate their upcoming arrivals as well? If mom and dad still have everything from the first baby, just host a "Sprinkle" instead of a full-blown "shower". Guests can bring a small gift for the parents or newly needed items for the baby rather than the all out "I need everything" theme from the first child. Sometimes an "already mom" still needs a thing or two. Perhaps its been a while since the last baby came and things were given away or sold. Or maybe this new arrival is a surprise! If mom and dad didnt see this one coming, they might need an extra hand getting things gathered together again. Pink or Blue? The Gender Reveal Shower is one of the hottest new trends in baby showers. There are several ways you can do this, but the most popular way to reveal the gender is inside the cake. The doctor gives a sealed envelope with the babys gender to the hostess of the shower. The hostess tells ONLY the baker who then bakes the inside of the cake pink or blue, depending on the gender. The cake is iced with a different color. Everyone then gathers around the cutting of the shower cake to see what the baby will be! The only trouble with this type of shower is that since your guests wont know what the gender is UNTIL the actual shower, they wont be able to purchase gender-related gifts for you. But its still a sweet notion of shared surprise, nevertheless. Its easy to see why this one is so popular. Reach out and Touch Someone Long distance baby showers are great for those couples who have moved away from their main friend and family base. It may not always be feasible for the couple to travel, especially when theyre expecting! But their nearest and dearest will still want to shower them with baby gifts. Luckily, technology has made this super easy for us now. Online gift registries and e-invites help you pull it all together. Simply ask mom to register for the baby shower online and the guests will know what to buy, the same as for a traditional shower. The guests then mail the packages to the home of the expecting parents. While youll miss one anothers company, the sentiment (and gifts) is still much appreciated. You may want to keep in mind the possibility of friends and family who arent too computer savvy. Mailing them a list of suggested items and a printed invitation explaining the situation is usually a good way to involve these not-so-techy loved ones. You can even mail them a baby shower favor to commemorate the event, the same as you would hand one out in person. A baby shower will be one of the most memorable days of a moms life. As families and traditions change, so do these celebrations. While the tried and true clothespin game (dont say "baby"!) is still fun, you can break the mold and host a baby shower as unique and trendy as the mommy-to-be.
5 Steps To Choose Baby Shower Games That Guaranteed To WOW Your Guests What are you thinking about when you choose baby shower games? Making cute baby things? Using baby products? Or even making guests act like a baby? I dont know about you, but I can really make a lot fun out of virtually anything. In fact, if youre the same type of creative, this is the best part of your baby shower! And this is also the most difficult part of baby shower planning - there are too many ideas flooding on the internet that you might have not idea how to get the most suitable one for you (and for the mom-to-be too). No matter what kind of baby shower games youre looking for, keep in mind who you are inviting to the baby shower. If youre throwing a coed baby shower, you should be very careful of the male guests feeling. For fun, here are two typical understanding of what men think of baby showers. - "Crazy stuff. Like eating poo, playing sadistic games, talking about diaper genies." - "Im pretty sure girls goo goo gaa gaa over all the baby gifts, talk about their own babies if they have one, and leave guys just sit on the couch and drink beer." So if youve already decided to invite guys to your baby shower, youd better force them to have a good time. A great idea is to have a MEN VS WOMEN baby shower scrapbook contest. The object is to come up with the best scrapping pages. Well the trick of it all is the women are not really going to participate. You just want to see what the men would come up with. You could have them go through about six or seven scrapbooks separately before they start actually putting their ideas together. They will be very interested and the outcome will be great. If youre looking for some games for baby showers required guests to bring items to the baby shower, youd better choose the right game before sending out invitations. When you have no idea in choosing baby shower games, consider using a theme. My experiences tell me that carrying your Shower theme into the planning will make choosing those games so much easier. Still have no clue? If your theme is all about a new babys tiny feet, besides decorating light blue, pink and white, you can surprise the mom-to-be with a baby foot casting kit from Everlasting treasures. And entertain your guests with fun baby feet games like Baby Are Made Of and New Baby Footprint and Handprint Advice. What if youre planning a baby shower for the parents-to-be of twins? You could have baby shower games for the twosies theme that includes the famous Noahs Ark and Animal Babies Match. For fun, have all the guests bring two gifts, and have 2 of everything possible at the shower - from 2 small cakes (instead of one) to 2 winners of each game. Here is the game salvation when you are pulling your hair out but cant be satisfied with any game idea. Karaoke! But you may have no idea how funny it is when you have guests sing for their dinner at a baby shower. Whether its a whole song, or just a few lines, make everyone participate by not letting them eat unless they sing. Everybody knows childrens lullabies, but you can also include songs with Baby in the title like Achtung Baby by U2. One final thought before you make the game decision is designating a Shower assistant (or a cost-hostess) to help you. Depending on how complicated the games you chose are, you may want an extra hand - after all, you need to enjoy the Shower too! Looking for more ideas of baby shower entertainments?
