BABY SHOWER IDEAS 2006 & 2007

 

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - DECEMBER 2007
If you are having a baby shower in the month of December, it is fun to make a festive party with lights and warm feelings you get from the holiday season. Start the fireplace, place festive decorations up and integrate the baby shower with seasons greetings!

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - NOVEMBER 2007
If a mommy-to-be lives out of town, a great idea is to give gift cards or send the baby shower gift directly to her home and give her a picture of the item she will be receiving. This way she is not burdened with bringing gifts back with her while being pregnant and everyone saves on shipping!

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - OCTOBER 2007
During the Halloween month, it is fun to tie the holiday with a baby shower by adding the Halloween theme! A great way to do this is to use baby shower centerpieces and add some little pumpkins, ghosts and other symbolic and fun items from halloween!

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - SEPTEMBER 2007
Decorate the baby shower party perimeter by taking newborn size diapers, filling them with rocks, marbles, anything heavy, and basically wrapping up the rocks as if it were babies bottom. Then I will attach about 5 balloons (pink or blue) with long strings and set these around the border of the shower area. Thanks to Cristina from O'Fallon, Missouri for the baby shower idea of the month!

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - AUGUST 2007
During these warm months, bring in some cool and calming symbols for the mother-to-be as it is hard to be pregnant during the hot months! Have the party outside if not too hot and use calming colors such as pastels, cool colors (blue, white) to set the atmosphere.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - JULY 2007
Instead of using gift wrap for the baby shower present, wrap the gift in a receiving blanket and place a toy at the top so that mommy has extra items that she can use.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - JUNE 2007
Create a personalize and memorable baby shower gift for the mom by having all the baby shower guests personalize onesies by purchasing non-toxic paints and white cotton onesies. This is a great baby shower gift and very useful for the parents-to-be!

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - MAY 2007
Essential items are always needed and many times not realized by the mommy-to-be. A great baby shower gift and decoration is to get baskets for each table and place essential baby items in like diapers, pacifiers, bottles, etc. The parents-to-be will really appreciate your help and will realize it after a few weeks with their new addition!

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - APRIL 2007
A great baby shower gift idea for the mother-to-be is to create a cute photo-album type book that can be used for a place to house instructions for cribs, toys, etc for the new parents as these usually get lost. This is a great and useful gift that everyone can benefit from who has kids!

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - MARCH 2007
A real neat baby shower activity is to make a baby scrapbook for the parent's to be. Give everyone a page to create borders, pictures, and little sayings so you can place them all in the book for the mother to be to use when taking pictures of the birth and on. It is a great way to have everyone participate in the memories. It is even fun to take a picture at the party of every baby shower participant and place it on the back of the page so you know who did the page for you and who attended the baby shower. You can find more ideas in our games section by clicking here.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - FEBRUARY 2007
It is great to add a little love to the baby shower by tying in Valentine's day by bringing in hearts, angels and making heart candy that says "It's a Boy" or "It's a Girl". Many decorations can be found for this holiday which will make the baby shower festive and full of hearts! Take a look at our baby shower holiday's section for even more ideas.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - JANUARY 2007
It is fun to tie in the superbowl game or football season, especially if you are having a couple's baby shower party with the men or if the baby-to-be is a boy. For the invitations, you can get tons of inexpensive blue plastic footballs and glued plastic babies, safety pins, etc. to them. Make a hole in one corner and looped a ribbon with a pastel colored index card attached to it that has the shower information typed on it. On the invitation, instructed everyone to wear their favorite football jersey. A fun game is called "Quarter Back" where you have the baby shower guests watch some of the football game and give a quarter every time someone cheers, yells, cusses or claps! It is a great way to start the baby shower fund for the new baby to be.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - DECEMBER 2006
Tie the baby shower games with useful products the parent's to be can keep after the baby shower is over. For instance, play the guess the baby shower item game where you blindfold a baby shower guest and hand them an item so they can guess in as much detail as possible what they are holding. All items should be baby related and can be given as gifts after the baby shower is over. New parents to be who do not know much about what they need when the baby is born will benefit from things like diapers, onsies, baby shampoo, safety scissors, Aveno lotion products, etc. Be creative and have a great time!

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - NOVEMBER 2006
At every table, place two disposable cameras, along with a note inviting any and everyone to take photos. At the end of the shower, place a basket near the exit, and everyone should drop off the used cameras. Have a baby shower planner develop the film and put the photos together in an album for the mommy-to-be. It is very interesting to see the baby shower from so many different perspectives and it captures many moments that would have been missed had I only appointed one person to take photos! Thanks to one of our baby shower guests for this great idea!

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - OCTOBER 2006
Buy a small tree that can be planted outside of the parents-to-be home. Tie baby items to the branches (pacifiers, bottles, nail clippers, etc.). The parent's to be can watch the tree and the baby grow at the same time. The same idea can be done with a small indoor plant.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - SEPTEMBER 2006
Have everyone write advice or some kind of fun message on a piece of paper and place it inside each diaper so at 3 in the morning, the new mommy or daddy can see something fun from their friends in the diaper!
