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?

Baby Shower Etiquette - Planning Your 1st Baby Shower Planning your first baby shower can be a challenging experience if not familiar with baby shower etiquette. It used to be that only women were invited to baby showers; however, events like these have evolved with time and now many showers are for men and women. Depending upon whether couples, just men or just women are being invited will help determine other decisions needing to be made for planning a shower. Making a list of everything needing decided upon and done is first. Start with determining who will be invited, where it will be held and when. Speaking to family members can be beneficial in making out a guest list and picking a convenient date and time. Baby Shower Themes There are numerous themes to choose from. While it is not mandatory to have a specific theme, using a specific theme idea helps in choosing the invitations and decorations. Some popular themes are teddy bears, traditional blue or pink, nursery rhymes, rubber duckies, Noahs ark, baby animals, Looney tunes, and scrap-booking or baby books. Of course if having a shower just for women, that opens up other theme ideas like a tea party shower or a makeover shower. Once a theme is decided upon, it is time to shop for invitations and picking from decoration ideas. Decorations normally include a table centerpiece - many showers feature a diaper cake for a centerpiece. Other types of decorations are determined by your theme just as the invitations are. Baby Shower Food Plan your food menu. Are you serving finger foods, snacks, pizza party or perhaps a pot-luck? The baby shower food menu should include items which all guests can enjoy and preferably quick and easy to fix. Remember there are several food items which mothers-to-be should not consume. Baby Shower Game Ideas A fun part of planning is which game ideas to play and of course, choosing the game prizes, gift bags and/or door prizes. Favorite game ideas include the dirty diaper game, diaper bag contents memory game, change the baby blindfolded, make baby names from letters of the parents names and guessing how many pacifiers are in a bowl. Dunking for pacifiers is a shower favorite. Just put water in a baby bath tub with several pacifiers in it. Guests then dunk for pacifiers. Whoever gets the most wins. Baby Shower Party Favors Baby shower party favors take some planning. Are baby shower party favors to be items the guests will give to the expectant parent or to be favors for guests to take home? Are you giving a door prize or gift bags and are they going to be theme oriented or just nice gift items? Last but not least, make a time line to follow. Know when during the shower the games will be played, food will be served and gifts will be opened. Plan on how long the party will last and how to end it comfortably. Once the theme ideas and decoration ideas have been determined, the rest of the planning will fall into place fairly easily with your checklist on hand. Dont be overwhelmed. Proper baby shower etiquette isnt hard and should not deter one from planning and having a great baby shower.
