Whether the baby shower you’re planning is themed or not, there are many fun and simple elements you can add to the celebration to make it a great day for the expectant mom and all her guests.
When it comes to games, simple really may be best. One shower game that’s sure to please is to have each guest bring in an old baby photo of their own. Put them up on a bulletin board or tape them gently into a book that can be passed around. Number each photo and see if everyone can guess who’s who.
Activities that provide a keepsake for the guest of honor can also be enjoyable. Provide a photo album where casual snapshots from the shower can be placed next to notes hand-written by the guests. These can be written during the shower itself, and can take the form of congratulatory well-wishes, fun guesses as to when the baby might be born or favorite bits of parenting advice.
Try homemade favors on the tables. If you want to decorate with flowers, put them in baby bottles instead of traditional vases. Or give each guest a small baby bottle filled with candies or trail mix.
