Was asked by a friend this week to plan a baby shower for her daughter who is expecting and everyone is looking forward to it. But we’re stumped on how to make it fun and memorable, considering that her sister’s shower was the talk of the town for over a year and paled all others in comparison. The food and entertainment were what made that party great. So what ideas do you have? We already have hilarious games figured out (found them online) but are stumped with the rest.

Okay, so my mom and best friend is throwing me one and they are thinking of doing a “spa” themed baby shower. They are thinking of having everyone come in there fav PJs and for favors they all get a pair of fuzzy socks. Then if you call around to local salons you could find a local Esthetician and/or nail tech to come and give everyone facials and manicures. Food would be a desert bar.
Another thing is to do a “spa day” where you and the guests go to a spa. Alot of times spas will host bridal parties so I’m sure they would do a baby shower too. Most spas even have a special massage just for pregnant woman.
Ok so yes this could get quite pricey but theres so much you can do with a “spa” theme that could cut costs. Good Luck!!!

That does sound fun. While everyone else in attendance might enjoy it, mom-to-be is not girly at all. Plus, we are trying to keep it on the budget end (under $150 max for everything).

I think one of my favorite things of a great party is a theme (even just a color theme) and using those details throughout. It shows that a lot of time and effort was put into the shower. Anyone can hire a good caterer but homemade details should thought and effort to me.

I recently hosted my sister’s baby shower. The BEST thing we did was NOT play stupid games. Instead, I set up craft tables. One table was a tie-dye station. I bought baby onesies in sizes newborn-12 months and let people tie-dye the outfits. My sister LOVES them and it’s a nice reminder of her baby shower for the first year of life.
Also, I set up a scrapbook page station. I asked people to create pages for the “Firsts” of baby life. First Tooth. FIrst Word. First Birthday. First Christmas. People get very creative.
I have to say that people liked NOT having to guess the side of a pregnant belly or what melted chocolate was in a diaper. It was classy, elegant, and still a lot of fun.

Use baby toys/products as your decorations — and the new mom gets to take home all the goodies. For example, buy inflatable bathtub for baby with adorable duck/cow/whatever head on it and use that as a cooler for beer/wine. Trust me – that was a HIT.
