How to Plan the Perfect Baby Shower

It's time to celebrate! So it's your job to plan the most memorable baby shower ever, right? Wow, but where do you start? Well, first things first, you'll want to pick a theme. A theme is super important because it offers structure and creative ideas to spin off of when planning. Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Check in with the mom-to-be: Maybe she wants the party to be traditional with lace and pink? Maybe she wants the party to be unicorn-themed, co-ed, or unisex?
  • Go off of the family's passions: Is the family big on the great outdoors? Are they into horses, cooking, or movies? Pick a fun party idea that represents them!
  • Consider the group: Will there be kids at the baby shower? Just adults? Just women? If this is an open invitation for all, you'll want to have a fun kiddy-corner set up and to keep the venue kid-safe.

        Hi Liz, You make a good point . . . more and more people are going for co-ed showers and "gender reveal" parties have become very trendy (people do things like cutting into a cake of either blue or pink inside). A lot of people are moving towards unisex/gender-neutral themes and naming which is progressive.

        In the last generation baby showers have become much more popular in the UK. I think we caught on from the USA. Your article also highlights the trend to find out and publicise the new baby's gender before they are born.
