Baby Shower Tips!
Did you know that August is the most popular month for babies to be born? If you are expecting soon or know a mom-to-be, chances are you may be planning a baby shower. We wanted to share with you some fun baby shower ideas to make it a celebration to remember!
Guess that Baby
Whether you think you look the same as you did when you were a little one or completely different, it’s always fun to see if your friends would be able to recognize you from a baby photo. Have each of your guests bring in a photo of themselves as babies and collect them in an envelope. Get the guessing game started by posting their photos on an empty wall or board. Call each guest to step up to the board one at a time and let the other guests try to guess the corresponding baby picture. Once everyone has cast their vote, let the guest reveal which photo actually belongs to them.
Ever wonder what the world was like the year you were born? What the fashion style of the time was, or the number one song, or what the top technology was like? Well, here’s your chance to give the newborn a fun opportunity to learn what times were like the day she was born. Have each guest bring in a small item from the current year to put into a time capsule, and ask them to write a note to the baby. Once the box is complete, tuck it away to save as a future surprise for your little one. That way when your little one grows up she can open the time capsule and get a true sense of what it was like back in 2011.
Decorate Bibs & Onesies
Time to get creative and channel your sense of style! You can never have too many bibs or onesies for a little one. Give each guest the opportunity to decorate a one-of-a-kind bib or onesie for your little one. Purchase bibs and onesies in a variety of solid hues (you may want to search online to buy them in bulk). Visit your local craft store to buy fabric glue, markers, puffy paints, and iron-on patches or lettering. Steer clear of beads or any small items that may come loose or that baby might try to eat. Encourage guests to go all out with decorations and loving messages for your little one.
