What is a baby shower? A baby shower is a celebration of mum-to-be hosted by family and friends. Showering them with love and making new parents feel pampered. It is a great time to catch up with friends before the birth.
When is the right time to hold a baby shower? Near the end of the second trimester is often a good time, hopefully after any morning sickness has ended and before the expectant mum feels too uncomfortable to enjoy it.
Should you have a theme? A theme can tie a baby shower together, like a relaxing 'Afternoon Tea'. After all who doesn't enjoy cake! Having a table set up with tasty treats provides a focal point for any baby shower. We love the idea of a nappy cake being used as the centrepiece, surrounded by edible treats. It looks great and is a perfect gift, check out Lambino for beautiful centrepiece ideas.
Make sure the celebration suits their personality. Playing a few games can get everyone involved. 'Guess the Baby' is a simple game that has a cute factor and can bring on a few giggles! Everyone brings along a baby photo of themselves, the host pins the photos onto a board and everyone guesses who is who!
It doesn't have to be hard work to organise, often simple is best! The most important thing with any baby shower is making sure the guest of honour feels loved and special.
Happy planning Everyone!!
