Your best friend is standing at the door with a diaper cake in her arms? Don’t worry, she hasn’t got the birth date wrong. No, today is your baby shower! How to make the typical American baby show a complete success? We give tips for the perfect mommy celebration and reveal games for the baby shower.
A baby shower is all about the mother-to-be and her future baby happiness
Before a baby sees the light of the world and turns the mother’s everyday life upside down, it should today once again only be about the pregnant woman. The tradition of the baby party has sloshed over from the USA to us in Germany and is therefore also called “Baby Shower”. Of course, the mother does not take care of the organization, but her loved ones do it for her – whether future godmother, sister or girlfriend. Cleaning up included! In the last third of the mother’s pregnancy, the baby shower is celebrated with all her friends and family members in her honour. A baby shower is a real girls’ party. Men are taboo here! Instead, on this special day, kitschy decorations, funny baby party games and gossip are on the program.
Baby party decoration: Gladly fancy
Consider whether the baby party should have a motto. Then you can choose the decoration to match it. With a baby shower it may become colorful in any case: Balloons, streamers, confetti, party hats – everything is allowed.
Food and drink at the baby shower: Culinary pampering program
Fancy a cocktail? Although mothers are not allowed to drink alcohol, there are plenty of colorful, non-alcoholic cocktails that are real eye-catchers. Do not forget finger food and snacks for the small hunger. As a special highlight, you can order a theme cake from a confectionery.
Baby party gifts: nice surprises
The diaper cake is a real classic at every baby party. No wonder, the expectant mummy can’t have enough of it. The father will tell you what else is missing. If you fold up, you can also make a larger baby party gift – like a baby carriage or baby bed. Or you can give away a voucher – whether a wellness day, a visit to the cinema, babysitting or cooking. So that the surprised one has a common gift from all of you, you can create a photo book in advance. Filled with funny pictures, individual sayings or baby tips, the book will surely be a joy to read for a long time to come.
