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.
Surprise Baby Shower - A Pleasant Surprise For The Expectant Mom Time has brought about changes in the way of throwing baby showers and a surprise baby shower is an offshoot of this process of alteration. Though not traditional, the idea of having surprise baby shower for the expectant mother is fast gaining popularity. As the name implies, this kind of shower is planned without disclosing it to the mommy-to-be. She is made to visit the venue of baby shower on one pretext or the other, where she discovers it because of the typical decorations and presence of guests. Pleasant surprises are always welcome, but if not planned with due consideration surprise baby shower may not prove to be so agreeable to the expectant mother. Or the mom-to-be may figure it out beforehand. Therefore, you need to keep in mind propriety of time and other aspects, and to plan it in an immaculate manner. Here are a few clues to holding a successful surprise baby shower. When To Have It? Most of the women are too nervous and apprehensive during their first pregnancy to appreciate any kind of surprises. Therefore, it is prudent not to have surprise baby shower when a woman is having her first baby. It is better to postpone it or think of holding a surprise shower during second or third pregnancies. For having already been through the process of childbirth, the expectant mothers are much more experienced and much less mired in anxiety. Further, you have to take extra care to ensure that time you choose for the party does not clash with any other commitment of the lady, her husband, and close family members. You may need to take someone very close to her in confidence for this purpose. Be Careful With The Invitation Cards: The invites you send to the guests for surprise baby shower must mention it categorically that its a surprise party. For the mom-to-be may happen to visit some guests house and come across the invite accidentally. Or some of the guests may happen to meet the mom and inadvertently divulge it to her. It is best to keep as little time between sending the invites and the date of surprise shower as possible. Decorations And The Gifts: Decorations for the surprise baby shower do not have to be any different from those for normal baby showers. Its just that you can be a little more experimental and do not need to stick to the conventional baby shower decorations. The same thing goes for gifts for surprise showers. You do not need to restrict the gifts to baby items. You may opt to gift other useful items if you feel like. Baby shower favors are a nice way of expressing gratitude to the guests and appreciating their participation. It must be kept in mind that any kind of shower is aimed at cheering up the mom-to-be and relaxing her mind. You must make all efforts to ensure that the event does not prove to be tiresome for the expectant mother. Especially if its a surprise baby shower remember to ensure that the mommy-to-be is comfortable.
