Sprinkle Baby Shower Ideas A sprinkle baby shower is a great alternative theme for your party. When a mother already has a child, family and friends shower the mom to be with gifts. Though a sprinkle shower is not exactly like an original shower, it can still be a blessing for the family. A first time mother having a baby shower can greatly benefit from it, because she is new to motherhood and may need some help getting started. Mothers having a second, third, or fourth child can also benefit from a baby shower, but may only need certain gifts since she can repurpose many things she got for her first baby. If possible, a great idea would be to make the party a surprise. Like any other event, planning ahead of time is important so that the event can run smoothly. Choosing a theme for the sprinkle shower can be fun and helps keep things organized. Following are some sprinkle baby shower sayings that you can use on the invitations, banners, and all around your event: Sprinkles with Love Shower of Blessings Showers of Love Sprinkles of Joy Sprinkle Blessings One way of making the sprinkle baby shower entertaining is to have a sprinkle baby shower talent show or mini concert. You can invite family and friends to use their talents such as singing, dancing, mime, poetry readings, playing an instrument and even acting etc. Another way of entertaining is having game shows like The Price Is Right and Lets Make A Deal. Choose the game that you feel would be a perfect match for your loved ones. The theme decorations are a creative way to make a wonderful environment at your baby shower. Place colorful balloons around the room and sprinkle confetti on tables. Use a nylon string to hang glittery paper stars from the ceiling. Its good to choose a color scheme of three colors. For a boy you can use blue, yellow, and white as your base colors. For a girl you can use pink, yellow and white. Hang streamers from the ceiling and above the windows. Use paper cutouts for wall decorations. As for gifts, here are a few ideas that are sure to make the mommy happy. Make a gift basket with baby food, formula, pacifiers, bibs, bottles, teethers, and especially diapers in it. As for clothes, if the baby is the same sex as the previous baby, the mommy wont need a whole lot more clothing items. Its always good to find out what she needs in order to buy really useful things for her. Its never a fun task to trade gifts that werent useful. Here are a few baby clothing ideas: baby shirts, pants, baby boots, overalls, or dresses. If you dont know whether the baby is a boy or a girl, buy neutral outfits. Other cute ideas for gifts are baby storybooks, musical CDs for babies, or a mobile. If you chose to do this alternative shower, I suggest that you make a list of ideas that you would like to have in it. Use this list to help you organize your tasks and check them off as you go. Most of all dont forget to have fun!
Throwing a Baby Shower Your Guests Will Remember Are you in charge of planning a baby shower? Do you need a baby shower theme? Decorations? Favors? This guide will give you baby shower ideas, whether you are a sister, friend, or coworker. Baby Shower Themes The first and most difficult thing to do when planning a baby shower is to decide on a theme. After this has been finalized, much of the rest of the shower will plan itself. There are several ways to pick a theme. A baby shower theme can relate to the mother-to-be and what she needs. It can be a color, a nursery theme, or a specific type of item. For instance, if the nursery is decorated in flowers, the theme could be "A Babys Garden." If it is decorated in a sports motif, the theme could be the parents favorite sports team. All the gifts would then coordinate with the room. If the nursery is painted with frogs, the theme could be "Green." This way, the guests can be a little more creative in their giving. Or the theme could be "Bedtime," prompting guests to bring pajamas, blankets, and crib items. For a second (or third, or fourth) time mother, the theme can be really creative. For someone who already has almost everything they need, a theme such as "Reading," in which everyone brings books for the baby (and maybe for the older children as well) would be a nice change of pace. Some people do not like to attend showers for second time mothers, because they feel that they have already received what they needed for their first child and are just being greedy. If you feel this may be the case for your guests (such as a group of coworkers), throw a baby shower in which the invitation clearly states not to bring a present. Or spend some money on a nice gift (for instance, a gift certificate to a restaurant, spa, or hotel), and ask that guests bring a specific item (diapers, specific baby food) in exchange for a raffle ticket. They can even bring as many items as they would like in exchange for several tickets. That way, people who wish to be generous can still give the mother-to-be a useful gift, and no one feels obligated to bring anything. At the end of the night, raffle off the prize. Some other theme ideas include: • Look What the Stork is Bringing • Noahs Ark (good for a shower where the guys are invited too!) • Alphabet Soup • Blue is for Boy Baby Shower Decorations The decorations should flow from the theme. A color theme is the most flexible and inexpensive, although a specific theme such as "Teddy Bears" will be easy, as you can buy coordinating tablecloths, plates, and napkins. Keep the decorations simple. Put a nice tablecloth under the cake and spread some confetti rattles around it. Tie some balloons to the buffet or appetizer table. Add some pastel streamers across the living room, and youre done. After all, the focus should be on the mother-to-be. If you are having the shower at work, the decorations can be even easier. Simply put the cake under a white tablecloth and add a bouquet of balloons. A lunchtime event is perfect for the office. Many of the baby shower ideas will work for any location, indoors or out. Baby Shower Favors After the shower, give your guests something to remember it by. Candle holders in the shape of a baby item, such as a rattle or booties, are popular and easy to find online or in a party supply store. Other favor ideas include magnets or candies in a pretty gift box. Of course, let the favors flow from the theme. At "Tea Party" themed baby shower, guests might receive tea cups and saucers. At a "Pamper Party," an idea increasingly popular for mothers who already have several children and therefore most of the stuff they actually need, they might take home spa accessories such as a loofah or bubble bath. Baby Shower Schedule Typically, a baby shower will last approximately two hours. If a full meal will be served, be sure to indicate this on the invitation so guests can plan accordingly. Usually, however, some light appetizers, punch, and cake are all that is needed. The following is a general idea of a schedule. As your guests arrive, serve them some appetizers, and let them sign a guest book. One idea is to make this an advice book, allowing each guest to write down one piece of advice they would give the new mother. Serve simple appetizers. Two to three dishes is best, along with some cheese, crackers, chips, dip, and fruit. Some ideas for munchies that are easy and can be made ahead of time include: Deviled Eggs: Add salsa and cheddar for a Mexican twist! Stuffed Mushrooms After all your guests have arrived, begin with everyone introducing themselves. This is especially important if this is a mixed shower, with coworkers, friends, and family. Make sure everyone mentions how they know the mother-to-be. Next, play one or two games. These will serve as icebreakers. Some ideas include: Baby Boggle - See how many baby related words guests can make in three minutes from a sentence such as "I cant believe [Mother-To-Bes Name] is going to have a baby!" or something else silly and fun. Everyone reads their list, crossing off duplicates, and the person with the most remaining wins. Baby Box - Place some common baby items (rattle, diaper) in a box. Cut a small hand-sized hole in the side. Give each guest 20 seconds to touch as many items as they can (no peeking!), then have them write down what they felt. The person with the most correct wins. Remember, short is good, and have fun! If there is going to be a full meal, now is the time. Generally, a buffet is best, as the guests can eat while the mother-to-be opens her gifts. If there is not going to be a full meal, give everyone some time to get another round of appetizers, then have the guest of honor open her presents. After the gifts are open, serve the cake. At this point, the shower is over. Everyone will socialize for as long as theyd like, and the guests will begin to leave. If the time is important (i.e. the host has somewhere she needs to be), be sure to put an end time of the invitations. Hopefully this gave you enough baby shower ideas to begin brainstorming. Remember to have fun, and youll throw a successful baby shower.
