The arrival of a new baby is a joyous occasion, deserving of a memorable celebration. From trendy to traditional, here are some innovative ways to make the baby shower special for everyone involved.
Gender Reveal or Not?
The question of whether to have a gender reveal has become more nuanced. Some parents prefer to keep it a mystery while others can't wait to share. The decision can dictate the theme, colors, and even some activities at the party.
Diaper Cake Centerpiece
Gone are the days of simple diaper cakes. Now they come in all shapes and sizes, even resembling carriages or animals. These not only serve as decoration but are also a practical gift for the parents-to-be.
Baby Onesie Design Station
Set up a station with plain white onesies and fabric markers or patches. Guests can get creative and personalize a onesie for the baby, making for a heartfelt memento.
With the mom-to-be avoiding alcohol, offer a range of delicious and visually appealing mocktails. Consider theming them around baby names or children's books for added fun.
Instead of traditional baby shower games, set up a cozy reading nook. Invite guests to bring their favorite children's book and read a passage. This introduces the baby to the world of literature right from the start.
Food Cravings Table
Remember those weird cravings during pregnancy? Create a buffet that mimics some of the common or even bizarre cravings expectant moms experience.
Provide squares of fabric for each guest to write a message or wish for the baby. After the party, these can be stitched together to form a keepsake quilt.
If the parents-to-be already have children, involving them can make the event feel like a family affair. They can help with games, or even prepare a small performance to welcome their new sibling.
Consider making the event more sustainable by using reusable tableware and decorations. You can also ask guests to bring second-hand baby books or clothes as gifts.
Thank your guests with personalized baby shower favors that are practical yet unique, like custom soaps or mini potted plants.
