Planning a baby shower typically takes about 2-3 days. A typical party typically costs about thirty-five-forty minutes in the beginning for guests to arrival, mingle, and eat some food before the actual games / activities begin. Spend the last 30 45 minutes playing games. Be sure to provide some finger foods and a variety of beverages like wine, beer, coffee, or soda to go along with the games. One of the most popular games at baby showers is ‘pass the bingo’. Pass the bingo card to several guests (over the age of 21 preferably) and they have to guess the word being played by the host (the one who holds the bingo card).

An Overview

Some fun games you may want to consider are guessing the circumference of the pregnant mom’s belly or asking the mom-to-be which of her babies she’s carrying. Baby showers are also great platforms for new moms to meet other like minded women and talk about motherhood while enjoying the company of others. There are a lot of cute outfits that can be purchased as party favors, or even as part of the gift basket. A perfect baby shower gift would be a set of pink baby socks, a bib, or a bottle. Or perhaps you want to give out cute custom imprinted bibs. Custom bibs are made in the shape of a baby, and they give new moms the option of slipping them over their own boobs or just wearing them under their shirts.

Other fun gifts for a baby shower include personalized votive candles, picture frames, bubble baths, or even a small plush toy. If the mom-to-be doesn’t have any gifts yet, consider buying her some inexpensive baby shower favors to take home after the party ends. These can be mini photo albums, personalized lip balms, or picture frame kits. Or, if you want to spend a little extra, you can purchase some adorable keepsake baby shower favors to take with them to the hospital.

Baby Shower Wears To Look Out For

As mentioned before, traditional baby showers are often centered around the mom-to-be. This means that the guests may not always fully dress for the occasion. When you attend one of these traditional baby showers, it’s definitely expected that you will arrive in time. In the past, arriving too late could result in a host of problems. Guests who arrive late could find themselves left standing in the crowd while everyone else makes it through the room and onto the dance floor. In today’s culture, many new moms choose to arrive in time to be one of the first ones at the party.

Luckily, there are a few things that women who decide to attend one of these traditional baby showers can do to make the experience easier on themselves and everyone else. One of the most important pieces of baby shower etiquette is to arrive in time. If you are a new mom-to-be, that’s your responsibility. It doesn’t matter if you’re the only guest, you still need to make sure that you arrive on time.

If you are going to a gender reveal, a piece of news that may be worrying you is that it is perfectly okay to skip the gender reveal and just come to the baby shower! You may be wondering why this is a good idea. The reason is that the food at a gender reveal party is generally more elaborate and tends to be more casual than the food at a regular baby shower. It is also usually held on a weekend, which means that you won’t have to worry about wearing an apron all weekend long.

In The End

Before you arrive at your baby shower, be sure that you have packed everything you’ll need to celebrate with your family and friends. Don’t leave home without your pregnant husband and pregnant mom-to-be. Carry tissues and t-shirts with you and make sure that you’ve stocked up on toiletries and plenty of snacks for when you get there. This way you won’t have to rush out to buy something just before you walk in.

Most of all, don’t stress about the clothes. You know what they say it’s not the clothing that makes the mother, it’s the care that makes the baby. Make sure that you have fun with the people you’re coming with and have fun yourself by trying out some of the cool outfits. These simple tips will ensure that your baby shower will be a success.
