 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!!!

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.
