What to do for a Baby Shower!
What a fun time! You have volunteered to give the baby shower or have just been invited to one. What to give? What to use for a centerpiece? Should you do a theme?
What is a good Theme for a Baby Shower?
ANSWER: A Baby Shower theme can be "Bath Time for Baby"! This can start everything off with having everyone bring one item used at bath time. This can be baby necessities such as hooded towels, wash cloths, lotions, powder, diaper ointment, rubber ducks and other bath time toys. Buy a baby bath tub to hold all of the gifts for Mom. As Mom opens the gifts have a timer going off at intervals, the one who brought the gift she is opening at that time gets a prize. Any new Mom will be delighted to have such wonderful Bath Time Shower Gifts!
Different themes for a Baby Shower:
- Delightful Frogs for a little boy
- Sport themes
- Puppy Dogs
- Prince or Princess
- Teddy Bears and other cuddly plush baby toys
- Books, CD's, DVD's from Baby Einstein
- Circus, Zoo or Barnyard Animals
Another Baby Shower Idea is to use a Diaper Cake (in a variety of themes as above) as your centerpiece. If this is the first baby for the family, you know they will need everything. If there are siblings, you might want to think along the lines of new blankets, towels, wash cloths, sleepers and maybe a few new plush toys just for the new baby. If the siblings are close in age, many times a Baby Shower of Diapers is a greatly appreciated gift. New babies can use as many as 10 per day, so this is a very well received baby shower gift.
At a Baby Shower the new parents receive such a multitude of gifts, so anyone you invite will appreciate a notation on your invitation about the color scheme of the new baby's room or any stores the new Mom is registered.
