3 Tips on How to Throw a Meaningful Baby Shower

A baby shower is a milestone in every pregnant woman’s life. It is the time where every person close to her heart officially welcomes her baby by showering her with cute gifts. Traditionally, baby showers were intended to be a time where mothers can share their wisdom on parenthood. For most of us though, it’s the day we announce and shout to the world, “I’m having a baby!” If you are throwing a baby shower sometime soon, here are some tips so that yours will be as meaningful as your pregnancy.

Think Theme.

When I had my baby shower approximately 2 years ago, I had a theme—“life is what you paint it.” I wanted an artistic event where people can express their creativity as they welcome my baby. So I bought blank canvasses and made them table cloths during the shower. People can draw and write anything they want my baby to see on the canvasses while they eat and chat with me. I placed different palettes of paint on each of the tables and lots of brushes, which they can take home as shower souvenirs or party giveaways. Most of my friends are artists and humanities people so the guests had fun! So that’s the key—know who you are and express that in the baby shower, if you are a musician, go for a theme that will echo that part of you. This is your baby shower, so it’s all about you.

Consider Potluck.

A lot of people don’t want to have kids because of they feel that they’re still financially incapable. Really, having a baby can be demanding monetarily. So as much as you can, save, save, save. Ask your friends to bring food and drinks for the baby shower. But the catch is, every food they will give will symbolize something. It’s like your own version of the gift of the Magi. I’m sure your friends will be excited about this idea!

Plan activities.

It will be fun to have games during the shower. Of course, it’s great if the game has something to do with motherhood and babies. The bottom line is to perk up your guests and make them happy. Making your guests happy will make this a memorable experience.

Making your baby shower meaningful and unforgettable is just easy—just let your imagination soar to put your creativity at its peak!

Now it's your turn! So, go ahead... link up, grab yourself a button, and spread the word! :)
