You're invited to a BBBQ.
Your baby shower should be a reflection of your style and personality. Some showers are formal and elegant, while others are casual with boho flair. And sometimes it’s a laugh-fest complete with a customized Cards Against Humanity game that depicts the less glamorous side of parenting. If you’re a laugh-fest type of person, this Simpsons shower theme is right up your alley. Playing off Homer’s BYOBB BBQ party invitations, invite guests to a barbecue celebration to get the fun started.
OCCASION: Baby Shower

If you can't celebrate at Moe's Tavern, host at your own neighborhood watering hole instead.
Why not take advantage of all of your nearest and dearest being together in one room with a photo booth? Photo booths make it a breeze to get a snap with each guest, and being goofy in a photo is a great icebreaker for guests who are getting to know each other.
Of course for a BBQ you’ll need some BBQ, but there’s no shortage of food puns to play with for a Simpsons shower theme. In addition to sliders and hamburgers, add in Fluffer Nutters sandwiches (and Hi-C), “Flanders Style” nachos, doughnut pops, and just to top it off, 64 slices of American cheese.
Large-batch cocktails make it easy for everyone to serve themselves. Or, prepare a couple non-alcoholic drinks like punch and iced tea with a few liquor options on the side for guests to mix themselves.
Is sleep deprivation from a new baby the equivalent of sleep deprivation via a clown bed? You be the judge.
Traditional baby shower games for this shower just won’t do. How about a custom round of Cards Against Humanity? Here’s how you play: Every guest gets a few cards when they arrive (tell them to put their initials on the back of their cards), and drop one each into envelopes that have a fill-in-the-blank prompt. The funniest answer wins!
