Baby Shower Ideas


Expecting the arrival of a little one? This is one of the most special moments in life, and it should be celebrated with a special party to match. Bring friends and family together for a baby shower filled with delicious food, sweet cocktails (or mocktails), playful décor and fun games.

Whether you’re having a gender neutral baby shower or showing off the gender with pink or blue color palettes, there are plenty of ways to make your celebration unique and personal. Some parents swap in a gender reveal party in place of a traditional baby shower, for more of a Jack and Jill celebration (both men and women in attendance).

However you want to celebrate, start by picking a theme or décor aesthetic, then add in the bigger-ticket items like food (appetizers or dessert bar?), drinks (large-batch punch or signature cocktail?) and entertainment (live music or balloon twister?).

Baby shower games are another opportunity to personalize the celebration. Think: quizzing guests on how well they know the mom- or dad-to-be, where baby’s name comes from, who can tie the fastest diaper or due-date betting. No matter what your vision is, start your planning below.
