10 Tips for Planning a Unique Baby Shower

Having a Baby is an exciting and Special Time in your Life. Your Baby Shower should be Fun and Unique too.

Here's some tips for planning a Unique Baby Shower.

#1: Pick a Theme! Maybe the Mother to be is decorating the Baby's Room in Jungle Animals. Coordinate your party invitations and decorations. Check out all of Tiny Prints Baby Shower invitations for some great ideas.

#2: Pick a Location. This should be at a place that has enough room for all the guests to visit at comfortably. If the Mother to Be likes to be more comfortable- then maybe a friend's house or relatives place would work nice. Try not to have the baby shower at the guest of honor's house. The Mother to Be doesn't need to worry about cleaning, she'll be busy enough. Otherwise, rent a hall-if you want to do it all yourself or have it at a restaurant if you would like it catered.

#3: Set a Date and Time. This should be convenient for the Mother to Be and her guests. Try something different and have the Baby shower in the evening.

#4: Include the Father to Be and invite Men too. Let the guests know that Daddy will be there too. It's always nice to have a special Daddy Diaper Bag Too.

#5: Food! Try to coordinate this with your theme. Or Try something different and instead of serving Lunch or Dinner have a Desert Party. (This depends on the time of your party)

#6: Centerpieces: Make a Diaper Cake and use this as a decoration. Have each guest bring a certain item and everyone can work together by putting the Diaper Cake together.

#7:Play Games. I like the Name the Baby Game. Invite all your guests to bring a baby picture of themselves. Pin up all the pictures and number them. Then have everyone guess Who's Who. This is fun.

#8: Cake! Everyone loves cake. Your Cake should go with your theme. Try something different and have cupcakes made into a design to make up a cake. These are very cute!

#9: Gifts- Have your guests bring the Mother to Be a small gift too. Like something personal like a new pair of slippers or have your guests each bring a casserole or a pre-made dinner. This will be very appreciated after the baby arrives.

10: Party Favors. Try something different and send each guest home with a gift for themselves like small body lotions or candles. Or Candy if you feel they would like that better.
