Different Kinds of Baby Shower This document comes in two parts, and youre on the second part. The first part of the article answered the crucial question "Who to throw the shower for", so be sure to check that out. Now, we just need to answer the rest of the questions: • When to throw the shower? • Is mom-to-be having a girl/boy/twins? • Will it be a face-to-face or online shower? • Is it a surprise shower? • Are the parents adopting? When to throw the shower? Before birth - this is the more popular option, since with this choice, its not just the baby which is glorified, but the entire pregnancy thing as well. If you are opting for this one, then you should throw the shower around two months before the baby arrives. After birth - though not as popular as the other one, some mom-to-bes prefer this because of some beliefs that having it before is not as lucky as having it after. If this is your choice, then throw the shower one month after the baby is born. And, make sure that games and activities are solely about babies, since having pregnancy games seem like a thing of the past. Is mom-to-be having a girl/boy/twins? Baby boy - invitation, decoration, and theme are greatly affected by this one, since you would not want an invitation that shows a picture of a baby girl, when youre having a boy, right? And you definitely dont want a princess shower, when you should be having a prince shower. Baby girl - basically the same considerations as the previous one, but this time, everything should be about baby girls. Twins - everything that you could do by pairs (pictures of babies in invitations, grouping in games and activities, etc), you need to do so, so as to stress that mom-to-be is having twins. Noahs Ark is the most commonly-used theme, but dont worry, you are not limited to it, since it is quite simple to customize other themes to make them twin shower-friendly. Will it be a face-to-face or online shower? Face-to-face - this is the more popular option. If you are opting for this one, then no sweat, most of the available baby shower themes will work perfectly. Online - with the advent of technology, friends from all sides of the world could still join mom-to-be on her baby shower. This is all possible by availing services of web baby shower vendors. The extent of shower activities is dependent on the services provided by your vendor. Since everybody have some family or friends from all sides of the world, even those having a face-to-face shower cant help but have an online one on the side. And who can blame them, a new baby is definitely worth celebrating, long distance or otherwise. Is it a surprise shower? Surprise shower - if you feel your friend (mommy) would appreciate a shower more if it comes as a surprise, then you are definitely throwing her a surprise shower. Instead of working with mom-to-be, you need to work with somebody very close to her, so that all her preferences will still be carried out. Your invitation should say that its a surprise shower. The more popular option is the non-surprise version (not a surprise, right?). And the reason is perfectly clear. Since you are not oblige to throw a shower for mom-to-be, the fact that you want to throw one is already a pleasant surprise. Plus theres no beating the fact that it is much better to be able to consult her, right? Are the parents adopting? Adoption shower - this is a very special shower type, but also very sensitive. We bet that the parents-to-be have been really dying to have a child for quite some time, and that theyre the very couple who would like to celebrate grandly when a child is already promised to them. This is also the most sensitive, and thus, you must make sure that references to pregnancy are limited (if not omitted altogether), and everything should just be about the baby. Also, before you throw the shower, make sure that the baby is already with the parents. You dont want to throw a victory celebration before the victory, so to speak. It is possible to throw a shower that is a combination of two or more of these baby shower types. For example, you could throw a twin WOMEN ONLY baby shower or a twin WOMEN ONLY surprise baby shower. The keyword here is customize, since these baby shower types are the popular options, not necessarily your option. At the end of the day, it will still be your decision.

In this a froth is obtained by whipping together the eggs and sugar. Then the flour is added. However, here no raising agent or fat is used. So, this requires a skilled hand to make a soft sponge.

Couples Baby Shower - A Quick Planning Guide Believe it or not, but many husbands would really enjoy going to a Couples Baby Shower with their wife. A baby shower is a fun get-together with friends and family to celebrate a new little baby. Often, the father-to-be would love to be part of that celebration. It helps him get excited about his new son or daughter. And whether he admits it or not, his heart will melt when he opens up a baby shower gift and sees a little pink dress or a little pair of denim overalls. How to Know if You Should Invite the Guys Simply ask the mom-to-be if she wants her husband and his friends to be at the shower. She needs to enjoy the shower first and foremost. So if she doesnt want the men there, then thats the answer. After all, the baby shower is primarily for her. However, if she likes the idea of a coed baby shower, then ask her husband if he would like to go, just to make sure its OK with him. Some guys might feel uncomfortable, which is understandable. But he might be honored by the invite and excited to participate. You never know until you ask! How to Plan a Couples Baby Shower 1. Make up the guest list with both parents. Have them list both her friends and his friends. Hell feel a lot more comfortable with some of his friends there. 2. Decide on a theme that both parents-to-be would enjoy. A general baby theme is always a great choice, or a sports theme, or other hobby of the husbands (cars, cowboy, outdoors, John Deere, etc.) are some fun themes that the dad-to-be might really get into. 3. Make and send out the Couples baby shower invitations. Have the invites match the theme you chose. You could make the invitations in the colors of the dads favorite sports team, or buy some outdoors or cowboy / western paper, or whatever the theme may be. This lets the guys know right from the start that the theme will be something they enjoy. Also, having more than one guy there might make the dad-to-be more comfortable & more enjoyable. Its the whole "strength in numbers" thing. Be sure to mention in the invitations that it is a Couples Baby Shower. 4. Plan the food. This is one of the most (if not the most important) aspects of a Couples baby shower that you can plan. After all, the way to a mans heart (and hence how much he enjoys the baby shower) is through his stomach. Meat is usually a good choice for your coed baby shower food. Definitely have something more hearty than salad and bundt cake. BBQ, casserole, or enchiladas are some good choices. 5. Should you have games at a Couples baby shower? You could do it either way. This is a great question to ask the expectant mom and dad. Often, at a coed baby shower, games are not played. Instead, everyone talks, tells stories and shares parenting advice which makes for a fun, intimate party with friends and family. However, almost always, when the guys actually play the baby shower games, they really get into them. They love competition! So, games or no games, everyone will have a great time. 6. What kind of baby shower favors & prizes are good for a Couples baby shower? Anything Edible! Guys are very predictable, which makes your job as hostess easier! Candy bars, rice krispy treats, beef jerky, cinnamon rolls, etc., inexpensive t-shirts that relate to the theme (sports teams, automobiles, Carhartt, etc.) are fun favors & prizes. Other ideas include: packages of football, baseball, or basketball cards, movie rental gift certificates, pocket-sized outdoor equipment like little flashlights or pocketknives, etc. 7. What kind of gifts are good Couples baby shower gifts? The gifts at a coed baby shower shouldnt be much different than gifts given at a traditional girls baby shower. If this is the only baby shower a mom-to-be will have, then traditional baby shower gifts are a must, because she will still need all the diapers, clothes & burp cloths that she can get. But one or two of the gifts intended for the dad-to-be is a great way to honor and congratulate him. Be sure to have the mom and dad-to-be sit together and take turns opening the baby shower gifts. This really helps him get into the baby excitement. Some other fun ideas for a Couples baby shower: o Have a surprise baby shower for the dad-to-be at his office/work. Call one or two of his coworkers to plan it. He is sure to have friends at work that would love to celebrate & congratulate him on his upcoming son or daughter. o If he is into sports, have the party during a game where everyone can eat & chat during the game and open the gifts afterwards. o Have a cookout BBQ - Any get-together that involves an open flame is definitely a masculine party! It is becoming more and more common to invite the men to baby showers. And, although a coed baby shower is still not quite the "norm" for traditional baby showers, most people find that Couples baby showers are usually among the most fun and memorable types of baby showers.
