All these and more should carefully plan to surprise and to make your best friend or your sister happy for her and her baby’s special day.
A baby shower is a party that is usually organized to celebrate the coming birth of a new baby. It is a time for friends and families to get together and share their time with expectant parents and “shower” them love, gifts, and good wishes before the baby’s birth.
It might sound new and modern to some but the idea of a baby shower started many years ago. Early Greeks and Egyptians held rituals by offering gifts and sending wishes to their different gods and goddesses to celebrate the birth or the coming birth of a new baby. It has gone through many changes through the years but it always boils down to one point – it aims to celebrate the coming of the baby and shower the expectant parents with gifts that will be beneficial to her but more so to the coming baby.
Who throws the baby shower?
Not the parents to be. Doing so will mean begging for gifts, which will be unethical to some. So it is time for friends and relatives to do the thing. They can organize a baby shower for the mommy. Usually, baby showers are exclusive for female guests since discussing pregnancy and other feminine topics can be a taboo for males. But now, as the society is being more open-minded, baby showers are becoming co-ed, and even male guests are welcome. It can be a very good opportunity for a get-together for friends and relatives and to show love and care to the parents-to-be. And besides, a baby needs a lot of stuff that can be quite expensive, so throwing a baby shower will help the couple to prepare most, if not everything that they will need.
How is it done?
Depending on what a mom-to-be wants, a baby shower can be formal or relaxed. Although moms cannot throw the baby shower, her opinion on how it is going to be should always be the priority. Some things that should be considered in organizing a baby shower are the venue, the decoration, the games, the food, favors as a sign of appreciation to the guests and of course, the gifts. Nowadays, parents can create a gift registry where guests can be given an idea or choose what the baby needs.
Today, most baby showers are relaxed and often playful. It gives time for the expectant parents and their guests to let loose and relaxed, and just enjoy the party. Playful and funny designs and decorations are chosen. And one great way to add humor is by choosing a funny baby shower cake. Cakes can always be a centerpiece of a party table. And it is also the same during baby showers.
