Spring Baby Showers - Adding A Little Spring To A Special Day Spring is a fabulous time to hold a baby shower. The world is in bloom around us. Its a season of new starts, new lives, and new hopes. What better time of the year could there be to celebrate a new baby? Here are a few great ideas to help you incorporate spring into your shower. The beautiful temperatures that come with spring in many areas encourage outdoor shower. For this reason, garden baby showers are very popular for the spring. A garden party can be held in a pretty backyard garden or at a local garden that hosts parties. The parties theme can just be a garden baby shower, or you can go with a theme such as a baby is blooming. Use floral themed invitations, and give personalized seed packets or individual flowers as party favors. No worries about decorations, the beauty of nature can not be beat. Plus, surrounded by nature your guests are sure to relax and enjoy themselves. Tea parties are also very popular for spring showers. If you are in an area where springs are too cold to host a party outdoors, or where spring is rainy, a tea party can be way to bring a spring feel indoors. The light femininity of a tea party, especially one decorated with flowers and florals is perfect for a baby shower. Have the shower at a beautiful tea room. Or, decorate with lots of flowers and serve tea and finger sandwiches. Use tea party themed baby shower invitations. Give your guests personalized tea packets and honey for their party favors. Decorate simply with flowers and pretty dishes. No matter how old she is, every girl at heart loves a tea party. A less common, but quite fun idea for a spring baby shower is to hold it at a zoo. In the spring most zoos are celebrating their new babies too. So, having a baby shower will fit right in. For games your guests can go on scavenger hunts for the new babies at the zoo. They can also match the names of the baby animals to the type of animal. You can use almost any animal themed baby shower favor, making it easy to find one that you will love. Decorations can be fairly minimal, and can be done in a zoo animal, jungle, or baby animal theme. Invitations can feature adorable baby animals. Since this is a popular shower theme year round, youll have no trouble at all finding everything you need to make the party perfect. If youd rather have a more traditional setting, such as a home, restaurant, or party venue, consider a spring theme. There are many spring friendly themes to choose from. A baby is blooming, flowers, baby animals, a pea in a pod, and baby zoo animals are all themes that work wonderfully for a spring baby shower. Even the pastels we often use for babies mix wonderfully with spring. Especially if you add in a few flowers. Whether you choose a garden shower, a tea party, the zoo, or a more traditional theme, bringing in a bit of spring cheer is sure to enhance the shower and bring a smile to everyones faces.
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.
