Baby Shower Party Ideas
Welcoming a child into a new family or community is practiced the world over, throughout cultures, and practiced for thousands of years. The giving of coming together, extending one’s best wishes and giving baby shower gifts to celebrate a new baby’s arrival dates back many thousands of years.
The baby showers we know today began during the baby boom era after World War II. The term “shower” came from the practice of “showering” the mother-to-be with gifts and commodities that could get expensive for the parents. This was also the time where the baby shower traditions that are still practiced today originated: the showers were hosted by a close family member or female friend, only women attended, and the mother-to-be opened gifts at the shower in a central, decorated chair.
Today it is optional to host showers where both men and women can attend and the guest of honor can include the father-to-be as well.
Whatever your choice will be, our team will help you to organize a perfect and funny baby shower for your little one. Here are some advices:
The timing is important; you want to have the party at least four to six weeks before your due date so that you’ll have plenty of time to borrow or buy any necessities for your baby that you still need.
Choosing the venue according to the time of year, number of guests, and budget is very important: it is possible to host a shower in your backyard or living room if the guest list is short but if not, you should rent a venue, hotel room or a restaurant.
Guests should receive their invites about six weeks before the shower. For a casual shower, an email invitation is perfectly fine. If you’re hosting a more formal shower, go with a paper invite.
We will help you with menu selection, music, funny games, props, favors and of course with all decorations. Here are some baby boy shower ideas. Enjoy!
